When buying an Audio Technica Product please ensure that the re-seller is "Authorised".
What this means is that there is a lot of product claiming to be original and in fact its not its most likely to be a cheap Chinese poor copy.
If its from a grey importer you have no local warranty.
If something is too good to be true,most likely its not.
