Most likely a bad or improperly wired cable assembly. Pin 1 is always ground. Depending on manufacturer Pins 2 and 3 are Audio High and Audio Low.

Buzz when you touch mic

  1. It has a bad earth (ground) connection. If you cannot repair it Go to look under support, you can get a price list and where to return it for repair.

Neumann TLM mic is inoperative when connected to PA with same cable that worked with Shure SM 58 mic

The Shure SM58 is a dynamic microphone instead of the electret one Neumann TLM 103. This means that Shure does not need a phantom power supply voltage, instead of Neumann TLM 103; this one needs 48Volts. Here are the specifications for each one of the microphones: Shure SM 58 - Neumann TLM 103. In case you use a pre-amplifier or an audio console try to locate a switch marked as "Phantom Power" and turn it on. Typically there is no problem supplying a phantom power at the SM58. In case you have no phantom power switch available, either post back the mixer brand / model to check it for you, or post me a question to suggest you one. Details about the usage and the mixer you are already using will help me to clarify the total audio situation.

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.

Dear All, We use a 12-years old Neumann U87Ai for male voiceovers, with no problems. Recently we experience some slight but annoying distortion, especially when recording loud male voice with lots of...

Usually the distortion is from over gain on the preamp or the spl of the actual voice on the diaphragm have him step back a few steps and try again.
Good Luck, Cody J.

Buzzin on my web cam mic

check all your grounds. Is the computer outlet have a proper ground? Sometimes if your using a sound card make sure its grounded to case of computer.Make sure cable that feeds mic is not laying over a 110v cord as that can pick up a 60Hz buzz or hum noise as well. Hope this helped sometimes its trial and try again....

I have problems with my m149 neumann

Hi wirus

This mic is worth more than $4,500 to purchase. I strongly recommend that you refer it to a Neumann service agent(with power supply) to have it checked out. There are no user serviceable parts inside the mic, and cleaning should only be serviced by qualified and trained personnal. I expect that you have already checked leads and so on.

Go to this site, for a service agency in your part of the world. Good luck with sorting out the drama. Hope you get back to recording real soon :)
