Question about AKG (WMS40DIV444US54) Microphone

1 Answer

AKG Model C451 EB Microphone.

The C451 EB is a pencil mic that has an outer shell and a cartdrige with the electronic circuit that slides into th outer shell. When I pull the XLR xonnector to disconnect it from the mic, the whole internal cartdrige comes out. There appears to be nothing holding the cartdrige to the outer shell. I see a small groove in the XLR end of the mic, but there is no snap ring or other retainer in the groove to retain the cartdrige inside the shell. Is there a part missing?

    I have 3 451 eb's with the same problem. There's a small c-ring that is at the very end of the mic before the lxr cord but if you have to replace it (at least for me) its really hard. I'm thinking of just getting short (10 inch) xlr female / male cords so I don't have to keep plugging and unplugging the mic. any other ideas?

I drilled a tiny hole (.038") through the outer shell and the cartdrige where the body of the XLR connector is mounted and screwed a tiny screw into it from a pair of old glasses.

I have the AKG wms 40 dual mini mic set with two wireless mics. When mic on ch 2 is in the off position, I get lots of static. Works perfectly fine when on. What do you think is the issue?


Channel 2 mic's receiver needs the Squelch adjusted. The squelch control mutes the receiver so that when the transmitter stops transmitting, erroneous noises are not picked up and amplified.

AKG 120 to Tascam US-800 connection issues


There is no reason to use such a configuration with the US-800. I advise using a standard XLR mic cable. It's likely phantom power doesn't work over the 1/4" jacks.

Hum which is made worse on touching top half of mic. clearly an earthing matter. engineer has checked bottom half but does not know how to get into top half.


I have the same mic, same problem. I disassemled the mic, put it back together, and the problem fixed itself. I can't explain exactly why.
To disassemble the top part of mic, turn the 2 plastic posts inside the mic clockwise.

What is the switch for on the Phantom power unit at the end of my AKG C747?


Hi,the switch for the phantom power on the microphone is to activation of the mic.Without the phantom being activated, the mic will not work.

It can only be activated with a mixer console that has a phantom activation on it. After connecting the mic to the mixer,activate the phantompoweronthe mixer and switch on the phantom power on the mic,and problem solved.

Note: Mic will not work if no phantom activated on the mixer.

My akg perception 200 is not responding


Have you tried using a another XLR cable..,or are the other mics phantom powered condensers..ie try to locate if its a mic problem or the cable..2 other points are 1 - XLR leads for phantom mics need to be XLR to XLR male to Female plugs[ends] 2- is that often an XLR to XLR cable will be not soldered or wired right,so that the power [phantom power is not getting to the mic] so ensure you have a proper cable for that job...Sorry i can't be more specific but from reading your problem all these issues come to mind..If you have ruled all these things out,then it could be the capsule or loose joint or component in the mic which means contact AKG,pro audio services or find a DIY mic person to help..G luck!!

Microphone cuts out


If you tried other cords and other PAs the problem might be in the jack where the cord plugs into the mike. service@akg.com might also be able to give you more info.

Stopped working. occasionally will power up. can't open it.


to open it look where the lead enters the microphone body you will see a circular rebate surrounding the connector, there are two notches opposite each other you will need to buy or make a tool to fit into the rebate and locate into the notches and simply unscrew. do not attempt to unscrew th body as you will damage the microphone..

AKG Perception 100 not working, at all


The problem is that your amp probably doesn't have phantom power. This mic requires phantom power to be supplied to it via the XLR connector. Most mixers and mic pres have that feature, but most guitar amps do not, I believe. Hope that helps...
