Has anyone tried the Audio Technica BPHS-1

I am tempted to buy the Audio Technica BPHS-1 headset. Has anyone got this or tried it? I do a lot of screen capture recordings and just need the freedom of a good headset. At the moment I am using a Rode NTG2 for the recordings, although it is on a boom arm I still have to maintain the same voice to mike distance all the time and it can be awkward when using a graphics tablet to demonstrate a point.

No one seen or tried this?

I believe the headphones are the ATHM 30 set, which are inexpensive, so unless the mike is spectacular, then I may just have to look for something else.

AT makes decent mics, so I would assume it would sound good. Looks kind of bulky though but that's normal if you need the closed-back ear cups for isolation. Remote Audio makes a set using the popular 7506 headphones, but they are designed more for on-set communications. If you do not need the cans, you have many options

Thanks Rick, the headphones are important to me as it focuses the attention on any ambient sounds. At the moment I am using Sennheiser HD 25, which are excellent, but as mentioned earlier the mike is on a stand so I have to remain in the same spot all the time. Ideally I would like a combination of mike and headphones in one unit.

I do have a cheaper headset made by Sennheiser, but the sound quality is not that good from both mike and headphones, I guess these were made for the gaming market.

Re: Has anyone tried the Audio Technica BPHS-1

Just received the Audio Technica BPHS-1 today. First recording was OK, once I applied some EQ the sound moved from OK to great. The Headphones are middle of the road in sound quality, but as a combined mike and headphone set they do the job well.

As a half expected bonus, the noise generated by the computer fan is almost non existent on the screen shot recordings.

I will be keeping this set, purely for my screen shot tutorials.
