The person I am speaking with does not hear me (He is deaf).
The microphone function does not appear to be working. I have adjusted the volume and that's not the problem (You must speak as well).
I have plugged both jacks (microphone and speaker) into my PC hard drive and am using my PC to talk on Skype (You cant plug even a single jack in the hard drive).
Problem solved!

What are the hazards a sound engineer can get from


Here is some very general info, however for more detailed info, I need more information on what your using it for. Speechs, Play, Vocals, Bands? Inside or Outside venue?

For Vocals you should have no problems with a Wireless Handheld SM58, they work over a large range, however still have a limit. Make sure the receivers are always close enough to the mics to hold a reliable connection.

Wireless Lapel Mics (Clip-on) are more troublesome, as they are generally consenser mics which are more susceptible to feedback. You also need to place them somewhere in range of the person's mouth, whist avoiding placing somewhere where you will get alot of fabric movement whist moving around, or you will hear that very loudly FOH. You also need to deal with body-packs and wires.

Leturn mics are generally easier to deal with than Lapel, however again are Condenser and more feedback prone.

I would reccomend the SM58 where possible, as it is much easier to work with, and you are more likely to get a better sound with less work.

When I switch on my Rode NT1 - A mic - it is OK until I speak into it and it cuts off for about 20 mins. Then it comes on - then it cuts off when I speak or sing. Can you advise?


I had the same issue. The sound would fade and then go dead.. The preamp in the device I was using wasn't strong enough and also the phantom power seemed too low to sustain the microphone. After adding a TUBEPre by PreSonus, all of the issues went away and I was shocked to hear how good this microphone really is. Was the issue low phantom voltage/? or a lousy preamp? All I know is , after adding a preamp all of the problems went away.This has to be the best microphone I have tried in this price range.

CAD Trion 6000 Not the best sounding and fades out when you sing loud into it and fades back in when you stop singing .I have 2 of these and the other works perfect with the same cable and mixer.


This possibly could be a moisture problem. Condeser type mics are VERY high impedance elements and any electrical leakage will make them cease working.

Also check that foam wind screen is not hitting the element.

Cyber acoustics ac-201 and it doesn't work!!


Hi itsonlyerin,

This has to be rather general as it's a bit hard to give you specific advise without knowing a bit more about your operating system and sound card.

Try checking the following:
(1) Headphone problem
First, I would try to determine if there is a problem with the microphone itself. Do you have another pair or a different model that you could try? If yes, then give them a go and see if the other ones work. If they do then take your ac201's back to the store and get a replacement. If you haven't got another pair then try them in another computer and see if you get a different result. If they work in a different computer then the phones are OK and we need to look into the computer hardware and software.

(2) Software Setup problem.
Have you made sure that on the recording controls that the microphone volume is turned up?

(3) Sound Card setup problem.
Some sound cards have multipurpose jack that for example can be switched between line input and microphone. Check with the card's documentation and especially check that the jack you are using is set to microphone and that you are plugged into the right one.

(4) Software problem - do you have the right drivers for your sound card loaded?

(5) Faulty Sound Card - try a different one.

Good Luck

I can hear the other party but I can't hear them. it says that my mic is mute....how do I undo this?


You mean "I can hear the other party but they cant hear me"

Skype probably didnt change your microphone.

Go to Skype Tools>Options>General>Audio Settings and on the Microphone dropdown menu, make sure your headset is selected. If it's installed correctly and you talk into it, you should see the volume bar start moving. Click save and start talking!

This is assuming you've already gone into sound proporties in windows and made your headset the default microphone and checked the volume settings on it.

Good Evening Norton Brent:

Check to be sure that you have not pressed a mute button.

Download the latest drivers for your specific microphone.

Uninstall and reinstall the software for your microphone (I don't know the brand or whether it came with the computer or not. Therefore, I can only offer general solutions.

But, I hope that this has be of assistance to you.

Microphone volume


I'm not 100% sure it's the microphone in your case, since I am experiencing the same problem right now with another microphone. I borrowed a working headset from my friend and it is not working either. My volume is up like yours and I can barely hear myself. I am updating the drivers soon and I'll let you know if that fixes it.
