Question about Sennheiser E835 Professional Microphone

E835 distortion My fairly new (at the time) e835 mic started sounding poorly (distorted) way to soon in its pampered life. Is there anything that can be repaired/replaced for considerably less than the cost of a new one? Thanks

Are e835 mics okay on a system using phantom power?

If the microphone is ballanced there is no problem. Only XLR unballanced would be a problem.

My ev nd767 sounding like its distorting- whats the deal easy fix or should i buy new one?

Unless you dropped it, there's no way the mic can distort. Try adjusting volume & EQ and input levels at your mixer or amp.

When i plug the microphone into my amplifier it works fine... but when i plug it into my computer using a 1/4" to 1/8" converter it has no sound on audacity running vista on a 2008 hp laptop...

The 1/8" input is expecting "line level" for the audio. The mic generates "mic level" which is much lower. In order for this to work as you'd like, you need to have a mic preamp in the system. The typical way to do this is to use the output from a mixer rather than from the mic directly.

Need replacement cage (around windscreen) for sennheiser e835

local music store probably carries aftermarket mic grilles and most microphones anymore have standard threads.

or you can go to online music equipment sources and search for microphone grille and look for one that would fit.

Wireless mic sounds overmodulated (?) crackley, distorted.

The Canon HV20 mini plug audio input has a very limited useful range, but you should be able to adjust your setup to get acceptable results.
Just on a side note, you can get a wired lavalier mic at Radio Shack for $15 that could make the problem go away, or at least eliminate a lot of electronics ... but the cable will only be about 15 feet long ... you could use an extension, just make sure it's mono.

Couple notes: One is that the mini plug input on the HV20 is a stereo microphone input, and you're plugging in a mono source. This will not cause distortion, but is not ideal ... a simple stereo adapter to break down the input (mono mic into one side of stereo adapter, stereo adapter into camera) would optimize the situation.
Another thing is, you have at least two volume controls that absolutely MUST be adjusted correctly ... hopefully one of these is the problem and soon will be the solution.
I don't know the Sennheiser wireless set in particular, but it probably has a volume control on the receiver box (which might be over by your camera) .. the other is actually IN the camera software ... go through the menus and see if you can select audio input volume and try the "auto" setting, and also try the "manual" setting, and when on manual, turn it down. This is the audio input volume control for the camera itself. It is the level that corresponds to the small level meters you can see in the camera's LCD screen ...
Good luck! You are not alone with these issues ... the beauty of modern video cameras is in their small size, but it's also a problem because you are not provided with proper audio inputs - you have to deal with the stereo mini plug input, which is less than ideal.
