I have a Crown CM-311A headset. However it's a little uncomfortable. There is another microphone out there that looks almost exactly the same except it doesn't have the adjusment tool that's located by the ear like the CM does. I've seen it worn by singers like Britney Spears and Janet Jackson. What type of microphone is it and where can I get one?
Re: 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.

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.
The ST 100 microphone is a phantom powered unit. So, it receives its power by the same terminals used for its connection, not needing a separated power supply.
In general, most mixing consoles offer the option to feed the balanced microphones with 48 volt via a switch that can turn on or off its internal phantom power supply.
If you are going to use the ST100 microphone with a common amplifier or mixer, you will need to buy a separated phantom power supply. Searching the Internet for "phantom power supplies", you will find many available models and brands.

all headsets feature what I think is called side tone. you need to hear a bit of yourself when speaking on a microphone as a bit of communication reassurance. When thew microphone level is up way too loud , that's more than side tone, it's annoyance that's when you get the problem that you've listed. I've seen it on telephone headsets and Mobile Phones but i'm sure it would happen on gaming headsets too... Good Luck
According to this you will need a microphone:http://news.sel.sony.com/documents/consumer/computer_peripheral/notebooks/NR/NR110.pdf Also this page:http://www.dealtime.com/xPO-Sony_VAIO_VGN_NR110E_S_15_4_Notebook_PC_Intel_Pentium_Dual_Core_Processor_T2310_1_GB_RAM_120_GB under audio.
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.
