When was the A25E changed from gray to black?
This change occurred in March 2015. The model number did not change.
The A25E was originally gray plastic with a brass-color metal threaded insert at the bottom.
The new A25E is black plastic with a silver-color metal threaded insert at the bottom.
The plastic material used is more flexible than the material used in the A25D. The A25E is typically used for KSM handheld wired mics.
