Kibo is a company that Audio-Technica U.S., Inc. uses to manage online order fulfillment. Kibo is a trusted name in online shopping, providing customers with a convenient, professional and secure shopping experience. To ensure timely shipping, orders may be fulfilled by a local authorized dealer. And, of course, every order is backed by Audio-Technica.

What is Shopatron?

Tax will be applied to your order if it is delivered from the same state as your shipping address. Some areas require tax to be assessed on shipping and handling charges.
