Unfortunately, the information about the ATH-A900x you received is incorrect. THE ATH-900X ARE NOT DISCONTINUED; they are still a current Audio-Technica United States (ATUS) product, with no current plans to discontinue them.
It is important to note, when purchasing any Audio-Technica product, it is always best to purchase from an Authorized ATUS Dealer, which is both located in the United States and ships directly from the United States. This will both ensure product authenticity, and qualify you for the ATUS Warranty.
Below is a list of consumer dealers that you may purchase Audio-Technica High-Fidelity headphones from, including the ATH-A900x headphones:
- Beach Camera
Subsequently, purchasing from a vendor located outside of the United States will disqualify one for the ATUS warranty, and makes it extremely difficult to verify product authenticity.
