Question about Crown CM-311 AE Microphone

1 Answer

I want to know what brand of microphone to buy

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?

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.

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.

I have a panasonic sa-ak58 sterio system and woud like to pug my mic into it. how do i do so


Hi
You would need to buy a small mixing desk which would plug into the AUX input at the back of your Stereo. Your microphone would plug into the Mixing desk.
Good luck. Michael

I have the CAD ST100 microphone i need to know the power to supply this and pin outs.


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.

To know a little bit more about these power supplies, please check the following link:

Good luck!

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.

I can hear my voice in my headsets..its very loud..if I blow into the mic..its like an actual live mic


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

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

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...


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.
