Which Audio-Technica Systems Don't Work!?

A popular question we receive is on the compatibility of our Springtree-Airwave Over-Ear Microphone.

We offer models that work with: 

  • Airwave
  • AKG
  • Sennheiser 
  • Shure
  • And sometimes Audio-Technica

Let's explain what Sometimes Audio-Technica means.

Audio-Technica has recently switched up their connectors. They previously were using cW connectors, but have since switched to cH connectors. The Pro of the switch is that it has allowed for thinner Audio-Technica body-packs. The Con is that it just drove up the cost of third-party microphone systems using the new connector types, so we have chosen not to raise prices, but to just offer the legacy cW connectors.

So How To Know What Systems Work?

Audio-Technica Systems 10, and the 2000 series still work with the Springtree-Airwave Microphone, as well as past 3000 and 5000 series systems. The new 4th generation 3000 series, and 3rd generation 5000 series will be on the new cH connections, as well as the 6000 Series.
