Question about Crown CM-311 AE Microphone

1 Answer

It's not really a problem but a question on a microphone I would like to buy. I have a CM-311A headset but it's uncomfortable. There's another microphone out there that is similar to it except there is not an adjustment tool by the ear. I've seen it worn by singers like Britney Spears, Janet Jackson, etc. Can you tell me what brand it is and what kind of microphone it is?

There are numerous headset mics. Most feed into a bodypack the singer wears, which can be wired or wireless. It has the batteries required for phantom power, etc.  See what kind of a plug is on your existing mic. Probably a mini-xlr. You should be able to use any mnini-xlr mic with your rig. Go to your music store with your old mic and ask to see and try on other models. If the plugs are the same, the mics should be inter-changeable.

How do I rewire my crown cm311a mic from mic to belt pack?


It looks like a mini XLR connection at the belt pack end, so that's easy. The cable goes to a connector block which looks like it is held together with two screws. Again, that should be fairly straightforward.

The other side of the block is the cable that goes up to the head set and boom mic. This looks a little trickier for a novice just because the mic capsule is small; the cable runs through a narrow diameter tube, and the cable routing involves heatshrink.

At a guess I'd say that the foam windshield will come off. There'll be a grub screw holding the collar in place.

Personally, I'd use a meter on continuity setting, upen up the XLR and connectors block, and test the two signal lines (pins 2 and 3 in the XLR) for a break. Fingers crossed it is in that section. Then replace that cable.

If it is in the boom arm section, and you feel confident dealing with threading the cable and using heat shrink then have a go. If not, take it to a Tech to avoid the risk of wrecking a great mic.

Sir myheadphone and microphone jack is not working


Hi,

I am assuming that the internal speaker (and microphone if present) is/are working. If so then it could possibly be:
  • the jacks themselves; and/or
  • the wiring.
  • alternately, the plugs might just be inserted in the wrong jack, pls verify.
If the internal speakers work, then presumably the drivers/software are correctly installed making this a hardware problem. This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I'm useing the SLX1/SLX4 cordless combo with a Crown headworn mic (CM 311/E SH). Sometimes the sound cuts off ! I'm based in NYC. where can I go for repair? Thanks


If the problem is with the Shure wireless, you'll need to send it back to Shure (www.shure.com/service). If the problem is with the Crown headset, you'll need to send that back to Crown.

What kind of outlet do i plug my cm-p35 microphone into?


The cm-p35 is a low-impedance (low-Z) dynamic microphone. It can plug into a mixer or microphone preamp that has XLR input connectors, typically found on professional audio equipment.

If you want to attach it to a computer, you'll need to buy an audio interface for it, either a pro-grade sound card with XLR inputs, or a USB-to-XLR adaptor, like this one at ZZounds.com

People can't hear me when I call them.


Make sure the microphone doesn't rest on your cheek when you are wearing it. If it does, you can buy foam nose pads that are meant for eyeglasses and prevent the problem.

If that isn't it, try looking at the tiny microphone hole. It is part of the blackoval that is on the underside of the boom. Sometimes it gets clogged. A straight pin head will do a pretty good job of cleaning it out.

Hope that helps.

I want to know what brand of microphone to buy


It is the same mic. The singer's sound technicians just removed the mic from the crown headset and put it on a headset custom made to the singers head. This way it holds up more to the dancing and it is less complicated to put on.

Microphone not working. I can hear people, but they can't hear me


Hi!

The plugs that they come with are substandard for regular removal.
(pluging in and out) the cable has no adequate strain relief causing the thin
cables inside to break. you will notice that it will crackle and temporarily come on
as you move the cable around near the plug end or where it joins the microphone.

Some times when people are engaged in conversation they play with the wire inadvertantly!!

i hope this has solved your problem.

take care.

Microphone volume


I'm not 100% sure it's the microphone in your case, since I am experiencing the same problem right now with another microphone. I borrowed a working headset from my friend and it is not working either. My volume is up like yours and I can barely hear myself. I am updating the drivers soon and I'll let you know if that fixes it.
