The ATH-WS55i Solid Bass headphones feature an in-line three-button remote that provides the ability to control volume, play, pause, fast forward and rewind music playback functions on compatible Apple devices. The remote also lets iPhone users answer calls over the headphones, or while talking via Skype or VoIP on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch®. The microphone has an omnidirectional pickup pattern (it picks up sound from all directions) and is designed for high-quality, intelligible response, enabling the wearer's voice to be clearly transmitted without having to speak directly into the mic. <br/>The Double Air Chamber System delivers incredibly full and textured bass without sacrificing the astonishing clarity and fidelity for which Audio-Technica is renowned. Audio-Technica’s sophisticated driver technology and superior components deliver exceptional power handling, maintaining clarity of sound throughout their extended range. The headphones feature 40 mm drivers for powerful sound and efficient signal transfer.
 

Do the headphones with mics use a CTIA standard or OMTP standard connector?

Good question. The ATH-WS55iBK are CTIA. However, the single "i" in the title means that these particular headphones are MFi (made for iphone), which means that they are specific for use with Apple products that feature a CTIA communications jack. The WS55iBK will still work with Android CTIA devices, but will have limited functionality (i.e. the volume control for the WS55iBK will not work on Android devices, and will be at full volume). Any headphone with an "iS" in the title will work with either iPhone CTIA or Android CTIA. This also subsequently means that "iS" headphones will work with PS4. Please note, there is no iS version of the WS55.

<i>Let the music be...</i><br/>Springing from Audio-Technica’s rich heritage in professional audio, the ATH-MSR7 Over-Ear High-Resolution Audio Headphones are designed to reproduce Hi-Res Audio, allowing users to hear music the way it was intended. The over-ear headphones are outfitted with exclusive 45 mm True Motion Drivers, which utilize lightweight voice coils, a custom-mounted printed circuit board and specially designed diaphragm to improve transient response and minimize sound distortion for rich, detailed audio reproduction.<br/>The ATH-MSR7 headphones also feature multi-layered air damping technology for extended mid-to-low frequency response. The housings, designed to “mirror” the full shape of the ear, are constructed of an aluminum/magnesium mix, layered to provide a lightweight, rigid structure that reduces unwanted resonance. Three precisely placed vents within these layers work to control air flow and improve dynamics.<br/> <br/>The over-ear headphones’ highly flexible swivel design, with soft, memory foam earpads and headband ensure lasting comfort even during the longest listening sessions. And with three detachable cables (standard 1.2 m (3.9') and 3.0 m (9.8') cables, plus a 1.2 m (3.9') cable with in-line controls and microphone for compatible smartphones and other devices) the ATH-MSR7 can provide Hi-Res Audio anywhere you go. <br/>The ATH-MSR7 is available in black (ATH-MSR7BK) and gun-metal grey <a href="http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/headphones/38ef8b91d4f4d4f6/index.html" target="_blank"><b>(ATH-MSR7GM)</b></a>.
 

Are the earpads leather?

ALL Headphones sold by ATUS 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-M50 / ATH-M50x headphones is made with a vinyl-based or polyurethane-based material that we refer to as “leatherette”.

ATR2500 vs 2020USB+

I own the ATR2500USB and am wondering if it would be worth moving on to the AT2020USB+. I'm still semi-new at determining how good a microphone is, so if someone could give me a good anser, I'd appreciate it.
The AT2020USB+ features a studio-quality condenser element, but the ATR2500USB is no slouch. The AT2020USB+ is built with higher quality components and will be considered an upgrade from the ATR2500USB. However, which microphone ultimately sounds better is something for the user to determine.

Therefore, if you are satisfied with your ATR2500USB, then stick with it. If you are looking to upgrade, then the AT2020USB+ is your microphone.

Hope this helps!

Bass of ATH-AG1 Compared vs ATH-WS99

specific about the Bass, is there any difference between both models?, I see that both have a 53 mm driver and double Air Chamber System. Should I expect a similar audio signature ?

does the ATH-WS99 Bass still has more presence?
Although the ATH-AG1 have nice bass response, it is designed to sound more balanced as compared to the ATH-WS99, which have extended bass response, even though both feature 53mm drivers. Also, the ATH-AG1 feature Double Air Damping System (D.A.D.S.), while the WS99 feature a Double Air Chamber System. The DADS system helps prevent spurious bass frequencies for a smooth bass response. The WS99 use the Double Air Chamber System to get more bass response without making them sound muddy.

In conclusion, the WS99 will have more bass response, whereas the AG1 might sound comparatively more balanced.

This miniature condenser microphone achieves full-sounding pickup and is known for outstanding consistency and dependable performance. Supplied with both a clothing clip and guitar mount, it provides natural and articulate vocal reproduction when used as a clip-on lavalier and excels in pickup of acoustic guitar. The PRO 70 is designed to make music and speech clearly and comfortably audible, yet never draw attention to itself or its operation. The microphone is equipped with a low-frequency roll-off switch that allows for reduced pickup of room noise. The versatile PRO 70 may be powered by either battery or phantom power. Its cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of the desired sound source.
 

How is the output balanced? Is it transformer balanced, op amp balanced, servo (cross coupled) balanced or balanced with resisters?

I need to decide whether or not to ground pin 3 when building a cable for direct connection to a guitar amp.
PLEASE REVIEW THE BELOW INFORMATION CAREFULLY:

The microphone in and of itself is not balanced; however, the permanently attached Power Module balances the output. The Power Module attached to some condenser microphones (including the PRO70) provides several important functions. First, it converts the 11 – 52 VDC phantom power (provided by a mixer or dedicated phantom power supply) into a smaller DC bias voltage which is used to power the FET impedance matching circuit inside the microphone. Also, it provides a low frequency roll off, some supply battery power if phantom power is not available, converts the signal to the proper impedance and balances the output. The power module is a necessary component.

IF YOUR GUITAR AMPLIFIER HAS A 1/4" TS UNBALANCED INSTRUMEN/LINE-LEVEL INPUT:
For connection to a guitar amplifier using a 1/4" TS unbalanced instrument/line-level input (typical), you will need an additional component; the Audio-Technica CP8201 Microphone Impedance Matching Transformer. The CP820 is designed to connect a low-impedance microphone (like the PRO 70) to a high-impedance electronic input (like your guitar amplifier). The high-quality transformer solves the problem of excessive high-frequency loss and hum pickup. You would essentially connect the permanently attached Power Module of your PRO70 to a standard XLR cable, then connect the opposite end of the cable to the CP8201, then connect the CP8201 to the 1/4" input of your guitar amp.

IF YOUR GUITAR AMPLIFIER HAS A 1/4" TRS BALANCED MICROPHONE-LEVEL INPUT:
For connection to a 1/4" TRS balanced microphone input, then you will need a balanced cable XLR - 1/4" TRS cable, such as the Pro Co BPBQXF10. In this case, you would essentially connect the permanently attached Power Module of your PRO70 to the Pro Co BPBQXF10, then connect the 1/4" connector of your Pro Co BPBQXF10 to the 1/4" input of your guitar amp.

However, to answer your question more directly, it is transformer balanced via the power module.

Mic clipping or cutting out

I use this mic with Mixxx and a shoutcast server for internet DJ. At first it worked great now I am having a clipping or cutting out issue. I have tried multiple USB ports and 2 different cables. The PC I stream with is a fairly new PC and only running my stream nothing else
In terms of leveling without getting clipping/distortion/cut-outs, it is very important to pay close attention to your BOTH your input/output values, in both your operating system and your recording software.

Do you notice that the issue occurs only in Mixxx, or does it occur previous to uploading the audio into Mixxx? If the issue occurs after importing the audio into Mixxx, then the issue is somewhere in Mixxx. If it's before, then it could be related to your recording software or the mic. This is where your input/output scheme in both your recording software and your OS are very important. Also, some programs demand so much RAM that it can cause lags in recording, which result in a cut-out. When using Mixxx, shut down all other programs. But again, if the audio is clean during recording, and you are only experiencing this with Mixxx, then the issue is with Mixxx and you will need to contact them.

Something we highly recommend is purchasing an AT8137 Windscreen for your AT2020USB. This will prevent you from clipping out the microphone element itself, and causing a cut-out.

is amazon a licensed retailer?

i have seen the "Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones" on amazon and was wondering if they were legit.
Currently, Amazon.com is an authorized seller of the ATH-M50x.
