You must use microphone pre-amplifier prefer mb-7---you will connect your mic to pre-amp in and take pre-amp out and connect in computer line in-adjust software for line in audio.

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.

Senheiser freeport no sound

If it seems as though the transmitter signal is being received but there is no audio, disconnect the 3 or 4 pin connector of the mic and touch the different pins while transmitting to the receiver. If there is audio hum or buzz, the mic itself is probably dead. A wire could be off inside its connector.

Sorry, that will not work. Typically, it is not possible to use one manufacturers transmitter with another manufacturers receiver. The two manufacturers use different tone-key squelch, different noise reduction, and different companding schemes.

Sennheiser md 42 microphone not being picked up on camcorder help please.

This would require a special cable to work. The mic is MONOAURAL with BALANCED output and the camera is STEREO input. This means a special cable is needed and you would probably have to make it yourself as I haven't seen one on the market.Pin 2 of the XLR of the mic would go to BOTH the tip and ring of the plug into the camera. Both pins 1 and 3 of the XLR at the mic would tie to the sleeve of the plug to the camera. If you tried an XLR to 1/8 adapter, no audio would be heard other than from the buillt in mic.

How should I connect an ATM73a headset to a sennheiser SK300

Audio Technica and Sennheiser each have proprietary connectors for their mics. A lot of times the mics require Phantom power which is drawn from the battery of the pack.This is important as the mic will need to be wired correctly to function.
The first thing you will need is the correct plug from the company. Check with Sennheiser customer Support for the correct part. If you aren't extremely good at soldering, do not attempt this. You can change the plug but the wires are extremely delicate and can short easily. Moreover because of the phantom power, the plug must be wired correctly for the mic to function, or you may end up damaging the mic by sending phantom power up the wrong line. I would advise having a music store or pro audio service that handles these products do the wiring for you. If you feel you are up to it, you can do it yourself, but be careful.

Hello My name si Christopher and I have a Sennheiser E815S microphone and was wanting to know how can I get it to work on my PC?

Christopher, your microphone is a dynamic type with XLR connector. This means that you can connect this microphone at your pc (at the mic in connector, the red one) using a cable with XLR female connector at one end and 3.5mm jack male connector at the other end (like this). Keep in mind that the 3.5mm male connector has to be a mono type, a stereo one will not work. In case you have the connectors and a suitable cable you can connect as follows:
YOU MUST CONNECT BOTH 1 & 3 pins from XLR side at the ground point of the jack.

The whole setup won;t give the best sound quality, but it's the simplest and cheapest way to use your mic and the pc. In case you need better quality, clarify me what you are trying to do order to give you some suggestions.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

Sound only comes through one channel, have you any idea why? Norman Bevan

Most likely there is a broken wire inside the mic. You'll have to disassemble it to fix it, and it's not what I would call an easy job. Get a tech to help you, if you can. Chances are that it's just a wire that's broken and needs resoldering.
Also, on the following page, they talk about determining whether the problem is with the mic or headset, which should always be done first.
Sennheiser recommends sending it in for repair, and here's their site:
Good luck, and hope this helps.
