Hi, they tell you the reason for rejection (e.g. quality issues, intelectual property, etc.). What did they say? I'm going to guess IP since there is a logo on the front of the speaker. You might need to clone out the logo.
Thanks for responding, they said, it's a 'quality issue'
It's probably the exposure then. You might need to adjust the white and black levels. Beware though, if you fix the exposure to thier satisfaction and resumbit it they might then reject it for the logo (IP). That's happened to me before. I would adjust the exposure AND clone out the logo before resubmitting just to be safe.

The logos… the handle and the front have a logo/tradename. But even then, you could get an IP refusal. The whole design looks quite iconic.
Yes, the main reason is IP issues. There are also exposure issues.
I would normally say, that needs a property release from Electro Voice, but even with a property release, business logos are not allowed. This is just unsuitable for advertisments, because Electro Voice could sue, especially if used to advertise a rival - which YOU are certifying is permissable - so you would be resonsible for settling the lawsuit. Don't go there!
It is clearly the problem of the mark and the authorization of the company which produces this object.
I like your image. I believe you went in a little close and so the edges are not completely sharp. Either that or the highlights at the top obscured the sharp edge. There is definitely an over exposed issue, and too the IP that was highlighted multiple times.
I suggest you take a look at some tips to get your photos accepted at this link. I commend you for wanting to learn how to identify flaws and so you can look at this link to see what you need to look for.
