Switching out Headphone Cable

Is there an option to buy or switch out the headphone cable to have one that includes a microphone?
Unfortunately, there is no cable with an in-line microphone available for the ATH-M40x or ATH-M50x.

If your considering purchasing a similar quality headphone that does feature a cable with an in-line microphone, then we recommend purchasing the ATH-MSR7.

Thanks!

Pair of UHF (540-565 MHz) half wave antennas with BNC connectors.
 

Would these antennas work with my Audio-Technica ATW-R1810a system?

Someone somehow lost one of them and I can't find any specific replacements for the 1800 series.
The stock replacement antennas will be available through the ATUS Parts Department, or because you're located in Canada, Jam Industries. To contact Jam for 1800 Series antennas, please call (514) 457-4875 or (877) 526-5463. To order them through the ATUS Parts Department, please call (330) 686-2600 x 5002. Other than that, it is not recommended to use the A3D / A3C 1/2 wave antennas directly on the 1800 Series Receivers.

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

Mic is muffled and recording almost all low end

I have had this mic for a while. Worked great on my XP machine, however I recently set it up on my Win 7 and the recordings low end heavy. Almost no treble at all. Is there a way to reset the mic or EQ it?
USB Microphones can be EQ'd depending on which recording software you're using, but usually after recording. However if it was working well previously, and isn't working currently, then we will need to troubleshoot, and maybe even recommend Service. Unfortunately, there is no hard-reset for the microphone, other than unplugging it and rebooting your computer.

To be absolutely certain, please make sure you are addressing the AT2020USB from the side where the blue light is, as this is a side address microphone and should not be addressed from the top or back. Other than that, you may also try a different USB cable and computer. If that does not resolve your issue, then Service with ATUS will be recommended.

If you are not located in the United States, please contact the division for your world area. http://www.audio-technica.com/world...

Audio-Technica’s PRO 88W VHF wireless microphone systems are designed for camcorder and other applications requiring a small, easily portable wireless. Equipped with a flexible detachable antenna and a choice of two transmitter and receiver frequencies on each system, the small and inconspicuous VHF wireless system will mount on the light shoe of camcorders or on the back of a camera itself with a Velcro attachment. For fixed installations, a 9V DC input is available on the receiver. Eight VHF channels are available for interference-free operation in virtually any location.
 

Will the mic input jack on the PRO 88W accept a 1/8" line from a mixer monitor out?

Rather than having two microphones on the person speaking, one to the live sound mix and one to the video camera, I would like to run a cable from the mixer monitor output into the transmitter. It looks like the transmitter has an 1/8" mic input. This would allow me to send the signal from the mixing board to the camera wirelessly. Is this possible?
This operation is generally not recommended because you'd be sending a line-level signal to a microphone-level input. Typical operation is line-level devices to line-level inputs, and microphone-level devices to microphone-level inputs. Sending a line-level signal (from the mixer) to a microphone-level input (at the transmitter) will result in sending a much higher gain/level, which will likely result in distortion even at low levels. Because there is no guarantee that this will work properly, attempting this operation will be attempted at your own risk. However, if you are going to attempt the operation, you will need a DI Box (such as the RapcoHorizon DBBlox), and the Hosa XVM305F XLR-F to 3.5mm TS cable. In that event, you should also use a single Aux Output on your mixer, not the monitor output. Also, DO NOT EVER attempt to sum/combine two or more audio signals using a cable or y-adapter!

Crisp & intelligible pickup—far away or up close. In its “Tele” range setting, this cardioid condenser is engineered to pick up dialogue and sound effects at a distance, while bypassing ambient noise such as traffic, air-handling systems, room reverberation and mechanically coupled vibrations. Designed especially for use with video cameras.
 

Recognized as headset, not mic

Want to use as an external mic when filmmaking on my Samsung Galaxy S5, and have the phonejack adapter. Galaxy recognizes that a device is plugged in, but only as headphones and not when I'm trying to record video on the built-in video cam feature.

The voice recorder function will use it as an external mic successfully, but not the video function.
Depending on the type of adapter you purchased, this might happen. The only third-party adapters we recommend using are the KM-IPHONE-MIC and the KM-IPHONE-2TRS, both of which are available from KVconnection.com. This is because these adapters properly convert mono TS and (dual) mono TRS microphones (but not stereo microphones) to the proper CTIA TRRS pin-out for use with iPhones/iPads and Samsung Galaxy Devices. If you plug a microphone directly into such devices without the use of an adapter, or using the incorrect adapter, will cause your phone to think headphones are attached and not a microphone.

The microphone plugs right into your computer’s USB port, and functions seamlessly with your favorite recording software. The ATR2100-USB also offers a quality analog-to-digital converter for excellent fidelity, and a headphone output with level control for monitoring. Its cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of unwanted sounds from the sides and rear. The microphone is ideal for live performance, podcasting, home studio recording, field recording, and voiceover use.
 

Can I get the ATR2100-USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR Microphone in New Zealand or Japan?

Hi,

I'm currently in New Zealand and can't find the ATR2100-USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR Microphone anywhere! Is it even available here?

I'll be in Japan in a couple of months (Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka), so is it available anywhere there? I can't seem to find it anywhere by searching online.

Thanks,
Tom

<b>Scoring 9 out of a possible 10, the ATH-ANC23 has won Digital Trends ‘Editor’s Choice’ award. <a href="http://www.digitaltrends.com/headphone-reviews/audio-technica-ath-anc23-review/" target="_blank">Click to see the review.</a></b><br/>ATH-ANC23 QuietPoint® Active Noise-Cancelling In-Ear Headphones reduce distracting background noise by up to 90% while offering the superior sound that makes Audio-Technica a world-leading pro audio company. <br/> <br/>Engineered to create a comfortable listening environment in areas with high ambient noise, these in-ear headphones feature a miniature microphone in each earpiece that picks up ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.). Electronics in the control box create a noise-cancelling wave that is 180° out of phase with the ambient noise. This wave acts like a noise eraser: it cancels out the annoying sounds that surround you without diminishing the audio you want to hear. The result…a peaceful enclave to enjoy the music or movies of your choice. <br/><a href="http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/features/b3ef06fca462fcad/index.html" target="_blank"><b>Read how Active Noise-cancelling Headphones work.</b></a><br/>
 

Response time?

I'm trying to use these headphones in a room with lots of hvac noise. In addition to an elevated noise level (between 60-70dB), the noise modulates in pitch and volume over very short timescales, ~1-2s, as best as I can tell. This means that even with the headphones in and on, I can hear the modulation. I guess my questions are 1) should this be happening, and 2) what is the approximate response time of the internal electronics once the mic picks up the sound has changed? Maybe if I know how fast the cancelation is supposed to respond, I can have some information to give the hvac technicians to narrow down what the problem is so they can fix it.
By response time, do you mean the time it takes the noise-cancelling to be processed? If so, the answer is immediately.

As a general recommendation, it is best to use the larger ear-tips as to create a better seal around the ear canal. DO NOT insert the tips inside your ear canal; rather, they should be resting just outside the ear canal, enough to create a seal around the outside of your ear canal.

It’s also important to note that ANY set of noise-cancelling headphones will not simulate deafness (as to cancel out all [background] noise/sound); they cancel out frequencies commonly associated with being “noisy”, which is more-so the lower-end/bass frequencies. Listing to music while noise-cancelling is enabled will also help to mask-out most other outside sounds. So much so, that you will not be able to hear most outside sounds, even with music played at lower levels. Therefore, it is possible to notice some background sounds (including some higher-frequency content of the human voice), but the noise related to those sounds will be greatly reduced.

Over-The-Ear Noise-Cancelling headphones (such as the ATH-ANC9 or ATH-ANC7b) might be more beneficial, because they provide better active noise-cancelling through it’s internal circuitry, as well as greater passive noise reduction (the physical ear-cups blocking sounds from entering).

Does this mic work with windows 8.1?

Ive seen people asking if this will work with windows 7, but will it work with windows 8.1?
The AT2020USB and AT2020USB+ are indeed compatible with Windows 7, 8, and 8.1. Both microphones are USB microphones, designed to be connected to PC and Mac computers.

However, this question was posted on the AT2020 page (non-USB version), which features an XLR connector and is designed to be used with mixing boards/consoles.

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.
