The affected broadcast and production products includes some of Audio-Technica’s most popular shotgun, stereo, handheld and gooseneck mics. Models include Audio-Technica’s new BP4001 cardioid and BP4002 omnidirectional dynamic interview microphones, introduced at NAB.

In addition, Audio-Technica’s new warranty will apply to its Engineered Sound line of installation products, including the ATCS-60 infrared conference system and SpectraPulse ultra-wideband wireless system. The Artist Elite line of live performance mics is also covered, including all wired and wireless models. Finally, A-T’s 40 Series of studio mics receives the same five-year warranty as standard, including purchases of the AT4080, AT4081, AT4050ST, AT4047MP, AT4040 and AT4050 dating all the way back to January 1, 2009.
