Is this a vegan headphone?

I would like to confirm that this headphones are leather-free.. I also read in other website that they come with a leather carrying pouch. Is this right? I am vegan and trying to buy a non-animal product. Thank you.
ALL Headphones sold by ATUS (Audio-Technica United States) are vegan-friendly except the following:

• ATH-CKW1000ANV (leather case)
• ATH-W5000 (leather earpads)
• ATH-W3000ANV (leather earpads)
• ATH-ESW9A (leather earpads)

The non-leather material we use for the ATH-M40x headphones is made with a vinyl-based or polyurethane-based material that we refer to as “leatherette”. The carrying pouch for all M-Series headphones (including the ATH-M40x) is also vegan-friendly.

However, since you are located in the United Kingdom, please direct any future questions towards the Audio-Technica division in Europe:

Signal dropping out

When we get people in the gym for performances and/or meetings the wireless mics tend to drop out. It does not do this when we test them after set up. I'm guessing it has to do with cell phones coming in to area. Any suggestions on how to correct/solve this (any thing short asking everyone to shut off their cell phones)

Can these headphones be used without an amplifier? Say, plugging in directly to a mobile device or computer?

With any current-model Audio-Technica headphones, it is not a requirement to use/purchase a (portable) headphone amplifier to be used in addition to your playback device (such as a mobile device or a computer). However, if you prefer the sound of a dedicated headphone amplifier, that shouldn’t be a problem either.

Overall, it is your call to use (or not to use) a headphone amplifier. It depends on what you prefer.

Since Audio-Technica does not manufacture any headphone amplifiers for United States markets, if you would like any further recommendations, you would need to ask a HiFi dealer that sells headphone amplifiers.

Anti-skating?

Hi. Thank you in advance for your assistance. I've been thinking of buying an AT-LP120-USB since to me it's undoubtedly the best turntable that can be bought with the least amount of money.

The only thing that makes me think twice is the fact that I've read many reviews saying that the anti-skating dial in this turntable is practically useless, or at least that it isn't as effective as it should. Is this issue acknowledged by the company?

Thank you one more time. Regards.
Thank you for your inquiry!

Judging whether the anti-skate is working or not by observing what the tonearm is doing in the floating position, is an inaccurate way to measure anti-skate. Anti-skate works only when the stylus/needle is making contact on a vinyl record. The standard recommendation is to match the anti-skate to the vertical tracking force used, provided that the tonearm is calibrated properly (properly balanced). So, if you’re tracking accurately at 2g, then the Anti-Skate should be set to 2. However, THE only legitimate way to accurately measure whether the anti-skate is working or not is by using an LP Test Record (such as the one found here: http://www.needledoctor.com/Cardas-...) that features blank plateaus/sections.

Larger 10.7 mm drivers give ATH-CKM300iS in-ear headphones an added boost of bass power, while the brass stabilizers absorb unwanted vibration and provide clearer mid and high frequencies. And the integrated controller lets you easily answer calls and play, pause and control the volume of your music . The condenser microphone is ideal for voice intelligibility, so you can be heard clearly when you’re talking, and enjoy your music in high resolution when you’re not.
 

Are these compatible with Samsung Galaxy S4s?

The ATH-CKM300iS are CTIA Compliant, and should work with a Samsung GS4.

Do these headphones Leak music?

I want a pair of headphones that have good quality sound but also it won't be a bother to people around me
There are many dependents upon which any headphones can leak sound. Some of which are how loud is your music, how loud are you listening to your music, how loud or quiet the ambient levels are around you are (i.e. loudness of your environment), and loudness at different frequency levels therein.

What we can tell you is this; at what would generally be considered normal music listening levels (not too loud, not too quiet, somewhere in the middle), in a normal everyday semi-quiet environment, the headphones should not leak very much audio as to bother people around you.

Audio-Technica’s newscaster-style omnidirectional ATR3350iS lavalier microphone is engineered for intelligible, accurate voice reproduction. This high-quality condenser is ideal for video use, and is a favorite choice for aerobics/dance/sports instructors. Its low-profile design assures minimum visibility. Included smartphone adapter provides instant compatibility with newer smartphones (Android, iPhone, more).
 

Is it compatible with the iPhone 4S?

All information says that it works with newer smartphones. That is very ambiguous. I have been unable to get the mic+adapter to work with my iPhone 4S. However, it worked well with my dslr.
There are two different versions of the ATR3350:

- ATR3350
- ATR3350iS (comes with an adapter for use with smartphones that are CTIA compatible, such as the iPhone4 and up, and some Android Devices)

If you use the ATR3350, or the ATR3350iS without the adapter, then it will work with your DSLR microphone input, but not with your iPhone 4s. The adapter included with the "iS" version helps to interface the microphone with the iPhone's communication jack. If you try to directly connect an ATR3350 to an iPhone without the correct adapter, then it will not work. This is because the iPhone does not have a dedicated microphone input; rather, it has a communications jack that supports either headphone use, or communication headset use. Therefore, to use a 3.5mm microphone with your iPhone 4s, you need to use the adapter that is included with the "iS" version (ATR3350iS).

If you do not have the "iS" version of this microphone, please let us know (contact information below).

<a href="http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/happenings/419c6513f828c90d/index.html" target="_blank"><b>The AT2020 reviews are in! Click here for details.</b></a><br/>Audio-Technica’s stringent quality and consistency standards set the AT2020 apart from other mics in its class. Its low-mass diaphragm is custom-engineered for extended frequency response and superior transient response. With rugged construction for durable performance, the microphone offers a wide dynamic range and handles high SPLs with ease. The AT2020: the new standard for affordable side-address studio condensers.
 

Cable selection

I recently purchased an AT2020 XLR mic and a Steinberg UR22 Audio interface. I also have an old Army Air Corps Dynamic mic. I just received my 6 ft. XLR 3 pin mic cable.
The cable fits both mics but does not fit the UR22. What cable will work for the mics and the UR22? I have seen the question asked about cable selection but only answers for what will NOT work. Would you please tell me what will work for my situation. I am a new voice over artist and am trying to set up a home studio. I use a pc and Sound Forge Audio Studio.
The Steinberg UR22 features an "XLR COMBO JACK". This means you can use a standard XLR connection, or a 1/4" connection.

The AT2020 (XLR Version) WILL interface with the Steinberg UR22. We are 100% positive of this. You will need to make certain 48v Phantom Power are enabled.

Please watch the following videos, which show that an XLR connector can be plugged into a UR22:

Computer will not recognize usb driver

My computer will not automatically recognize the driver for at2020 usb for windows 7. I bought it refurbished but i only plugged it in once to test it and it worked fine, but now it's not recognizing the usb at all the blue light is on so I know its getting power.
Since your item was purchased as a "refurb", it will be best to contact the dealer you purchased from, and inquire of an exchange.

However, to troubleshoot a USB Audio Device with Windows 7:

Important Notes:
• Any USB audio device will not work unless it is properly configured to your computer (i.e. Control Panel or System Preferences – your internal settings).
• A “Driver” is a component that an operating-system uses to provide I/O (in/out) services for interaction with an underlying device (in this case, communication with a USB Audio Device).
• USB Audio Drivers (in the form of a Codec) are provided by the computer’s operating-system. This driver is supplied with/by the operating system and/or the hardware (soundcard) manufacturer. This is why you can use nearly any USB Audio Device with nearly any computer.

To troubleshoot a USB Audio Device, please try all of the following:
1. Try a different USB port.
2. Try a different USB cable. If a different cable works, please let us know.
3. Try a different computer to verify. If it works on another computer, then you will have to contact your other computer’s manufacturer for tech support.
4. Make certain your USB Audio Device is configured using both the Operating System (OS) and the Program you are using. Please consult your Owner’s Manual for both.
5. Make certain your computer is fully up-to-date. This includes your OS, your drivers, and any subsequent programs/software.
6. Avoid USB 3.0 ports, USB Hubs, and USB inputs on computer monitors (excluding the iMac). All are known to have issues with USB Audio Devices.
7. For the AT2020USB, AT2020USB+, and ATR2500USB, please address the microphone from the "front", where the blue light is.
8. Also, if you are using Windows, please try Microsoft FixIt Support: http://support.microsoft.com/mats/h...

If you are missing the driver, you must contact technical support of the manufacturer of your computer and/or OS for additional troubleshooting options. Because the USB Audio Device should work on the USB Audio Driver supplied by the computer’s operating system, Audio-Technica does not manufacture or supply any drivers.

Audio-Technica does not sell directly to endusers, so we do not offer returns or exchanges.

If you observe ALL of the above, and your issue is not resolved, then you will have two options:
1. If within 30 Days of Purchase: Exchange through the dealer you purchased from (quickest option).
2. If over 30 Days from the date Purchase: Send the microphone to the ATUS Service Department for evaluation (www.audio-technica.com/service).

If you have any further questions or for any correspondence, please contact the Audio-Technica United States (ATUS) Audio Solutions Team and include your original question and this response, at:
audio-solutions@atus.com
