Why is the logo on the headband of my new ATH-M50x gray instead of white?

Most of the logos on the headbands I see in pictures and reviews on the internet are bright white. Why is the logo on my new pair gray? Did I get a fake pair? How do I tell if these are legit?
The logo on the headband for the M50x / M50xWH headphones is Grey.

The best way to know if you have purchased genuine/authentic product is to purchase A-T product from an Authorized ATUS (Audio-Technica United States) dealer. For your convenience, ATUS offers an Authorized Dealer List and Locator on www.audio-technica.com. The only ways ATUS will verify authentic product are by verifying dealer, or by an evaluation from the ATUS Service Department.

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

Input Power From Different Devices

I just picked up a pair of the ATH-M50XBL, and am loving them on my Iphone 5. I started looking at specs and see the input max is 1500 mW. What is the output of an Iphone 5 and 6, and what are the pros and cons of plugging in to some other output such as a stereo system, computer, mixing board, or other typical outputs used with these headphones? Does relatively low output (Iphone?) result in lesser sound quality, or just lower peak volume? Is a higher output, closer to 1500 mW just more volume? Is there an optimum output device or range for these headphones?
Every device featuring a headphone connector has a different headphone amplifier, which may alter the listening experience with any headphones. Sometimes, this change has to do with volume, sound-quality, and some devices will allow you to EQ the headphone output. It is difficult to say which headphone amplifier will give you the best results, as that is subjected and is ultimately determined by the user (you).

To more-so answer your questions:

"What is the output of an Iphone 5 and 6"
-To find out the output power for the iPhone 5/6, you will have to contact Apple to get that information. But from what I hear, iPhones might have the strongest/loudest headphone signal of any smartphone.

"What are the pros and cons of plugging in to some other output such as a stereo system, computer, mixing board, or other typical outputs used with these headphones?"
- Again, since every device is different, one might perform better, or subjectively sound better to you. Some might have a stronger output, which leads to a louder signal. Some might have additional components to reportedly improve the sound and/or performance. Although all headphone outputs are different, the one that sounds "best" is determined by the listener.

"Does relatively low output (Iphone?) result in lesser sound quality, or just lower peak volume? "
- A low ouput in-and-of-itself won't necessarily result in lower sonic quality, but will not be as loud relative to a stronger/louder headphone output.

"Is a higher output, closer to 1500 mW just more volume?"
- Generally speaking, yes. However, some headphones feature a higher max input power (M50xBL = 1,600mW) for use with high-quality headphone amplifiers, and for better audio headroom.

"Is there an optimum output device or range for these headphone."
- Any high-quality headphone output will give you better performance. But again, whichever sounds best will be determined by the listener.

A price/performance leader, the MB 4k cardioid condenser microphone is the Midnight Blues® Series’ introductory studio-quality microphone. With a condenser design for studio vocal and instrument applications, the microphone features: battery/phantom operation; rugged all-metal construction; soft-touch finish; extended response for smooth, natural sonic characteristics; corrosion-resistant contacts from gold-plated XLRM-type connector; on/off switch.
 

Does the MB 4K can be used for indoor dialogue in a short film ?

Although not a typical use for the MB4K, it can mostly definitely be used for indoor dialog for a short film. I definitely recommend trying the microphone to see if it sounds good to you, and gives you satisfactory results. If it does not, or if you have any questions, please contact Jam Industries/Erikson Audio in Canada, as they are the Audio-Technica distributor/representative for Canada.

Created especially for on-air news & sports broadcasting, announcing & interviews, this rugged stereo headset offers natural, highly intelligible and focused vocal reproduction, closed-back circumaural (around-the-ear) ear cups to seal out background noise, and a high-output dynamic microphone mounted on a flexible gooseneck boom. <br/>The headset’s microphone has a cardioid polar pattern tailored for pickup of speech with maximum voice intelligibility over a wide range of frequencies. It is more sensitive to sound originating directly in front of the element, making it useful in reducing pickup of unwanted sounds. The flexible gooseneck boom swivels for easy positioning on either the right or left side.
 

Connection Compatibility

I have a four channel mixer, which is connected to my computer through the mic connection. I can plug in the XLR connection of the headset into the mixer, but can I plug the 6.3 mm connection with an 3.5mm adapter into the headphone jack into my PC to hear the audio coming from the pc in the headset?
To use the 1/4" headphone portion of the BPHS1 with a 3.5mm (1/8th inch) connection, one would need a step-down (1/4" to 1/8") headphone adapter, such as the Hosa MHE100.5. You can always contact an Authorized ATUS (Audio-Technica United States) Dealer to ask about a headphone step-down adapter. There is an Authorized ATUS Dealer List and Locator on www.audio-technica.com.

However, you might want to look into sending the headphone output of your computer into your mixer. This way, you would likely not need an adapter for a BPHS1.

The ATH-AX5 over-ear headphones feature large 40 mm drivers for premium sound, generously cushioned ear pads and headband for enhanced comfort during extended wear and a durable ABS construction with aluminum accents to withstand everyday use. The headphone’s fold-flat design allows for easy storage in the included carrying case, and a flat cord effectively eliminates tangles. Available in black (ATH-AX5BK) and gunmetal grey (ATH-AX5GM).<br/><i>Music is your energy for life – the fuel for your heart and soul. SonicFuel™ headphones are made specifically for active, daily use, to power you forward by delivering extraordinary comfort, style and an immersive listening experience that never sounds artificial, processed or filtered. Just pure sonic goodness for the high-octane tempo of your life.</i>
 

How do these compare to the ATH-M30x?

I am currently a first time buyer of over-ear headphones, stepping up from in-ear headphones, and I cannot seem to find any reviews on this set. I am looking at buying either these or the ATH-M30x, a set that seems highly rated. How would these two fair against each other for an on-the-go, looking for high quality music kind of guy? I will mostly use them for an iPod, but may also use in a mixer.
The ATH-M30x headphones are studio-monitoring headphones, and are designed to sound accurate. They have nice clear highs, mids, and lows. As compared to the AX5, the AX5 had nice low-mids and low freqencies. If you have any intent of using headphones with a mixer, then I would automatically recommend the ATH-M30x.

Power module only for AT831R, U853R(W), U853R(W)U, U857R(L), U857R(L)U.<br/>Phantom power only in-line power module, with bass roll-off, input on TA3M, output on integral XLRM 3-pin. Furnished with U853R, U857R, PRO35.
 

AT8538 with ATM35?

I have the older ATM35 clip-on microphone. Can I use the AT8538 Power Module with this mic?
The Power Module for the ATM35 is the AT8532, which is available through the ATUS Parts Department (parts@atus.com).

Using the AT8538 with the ATM35 is NOT recommended, as this will change the specifications of the microphone, especially the microphone's max SPL (sound pressure level) handling capabilities.

Again, the power module for the ATM35 is available for purchase through the ATUS Parts Department (parts@atus.com).

Compatibility

Do these headphones work with iPhone 6?
Any Audio-Technica headphone with an "i" at the end of the title (such as the ATH-CKM300i) are made specifically for iPhone (MFi).

If the Audio-Technica headphone has an "iS" at the end of the title (such as the ATH-AX5iS), it means that it is cross compatible with iPhone and Android smartphones.

Therefore, the ATH-AX5iS will work with the iPhone 6.

<b>Easy setup & clear, natural sound</b><br/>Featuring sleek, stackable, contemporary styling, Audio-Technica's System 8 Wireless Systems are designed for reliable performance, easy setup and clear, natural sound quality. Available in handheld, headworn, guitar, lavalier and body-pack configurations, these single-channel, fixed-frequency systems are available in three traveling VHF frequencies (169.505, 170.245, and 171.905 MHz).<br/>
 

Does the audio-technica System 8 wireless system work with portable speakers?

I purchased the wireless system 8 to use as I am an exercise instructor. I travel around and want to use my own traveling speakers as well. (I don't have speakers yet) Is this system compatible with this? If so, what speakers would you recommend? I am in small and midsize studios. I am a spinning instructor and can't be fussing with different clubs sound systems. Am I wishing for a genie in a bottle? LOL

Please help me get this figured out! Thank you so much.

Connie B.
The System 8 will connect to any PA System that has a 1/4" Microphone Input. Since there are a plethora of powered speakers and PA Systems that a System 8 can integrate with, it would be best to contact a local Audio Retailer to have them set-up a system for you. Audio-Technica features an Authorized Dealer List and Locator on www.audio-technica.com. For the location you listed, there are two authorized dealers that can assist you with the purchase of powered loud-speakers/PA-System for use with your Audio-Technica System 8.

The new Engineered Sound®. Contractor-exclusive innovations for every acoustical challenge. And safe haven from RFI.<br/>The ES905CL is designed for quality sound reinforcement, professional recording, television and other demanding sound pickup applications. Its rigid-pipe design with ball-in-socket base permits flexible positioning, while its durable metal base mounts to a table, desk or podium with included hardware. The attached wire mesh windscreen with internal pop protection effectively reduces noise from P-pops, wind, and ventilation air currents. The microphone offers unsurpassed immunity from radio frequency interference thanks to UniGuard® innovations. The ES905CL also offers an 80 Hz low-cut UniSteep® filter that reduces pickup of low-frequency ambient noise. The microphone’s low-profile element provides a uniform cardioid polar pattern with a 120º acceptance angle. Power module included.
 

Windscreen for ES905CL

I know that AT does not make a windscreen for this microphone but which windscreen that AT does make will fit over the end of this microphone nicely? Even though AT has one built into this microphone, when individuals such as children that get real close to the mic., and then they pronounce words that have a fair amount of wind such as those that start with a "P" or a "B" (eg. peanut butter), and if the P.A. system uses small speakers such as four inch model ceiling speakers, then the bottoming out of those can be quite noticeable. So, please AT, can you recommend one for us all that would still like to put one on this microphone (ES905CL) to use? Thank you.
Audio-Technica United States (ATUS) does not have an outer windscreen for the ES905CL Microphone. If the inner pop-filter is not providing adequate protection, look into the Small Diaphragm Mic Foam made by Rycote. You need one that has a 25 mm opening.

If the internal pop-filter is missing or damaged, it is available from our Parts Department for direct purchase. Contact the ATUS Parts Department at parts@atus.com.
