PLEASE don't waste your money on a Panasonic microphone! Check out a Shure SM58 at Musician's Friend for a MUCH better quality microphone. Make note of the input connection that you will need on your Karaoke machine. XLR is the three-pin (lo Z) and 1/4" phone plug is high Z. The Shure is a Lo Z mic and so you may need a matching transformer (Radio Shack) if your music machine ONLY accepts 1/4"......Glen

It really depends on where you will be using the microphone and and whether it is just going to be used for fun at home or in a club oor for recording?

Some golden rules for microphone selection.
1) Make sure the microphone is Uni-Directional. This means it will only pick up sound from the direction it points in. You are less likely to get feedback or background intereference.
2) For a vocalist, make sure the mic is a reasonable size. If it is too small and you need to hold it, after a while it becomes fiddly and uncomfortable.
3) When singing always use a foam hood or pop filter with the microphone. This will reduce explosive sounds on the letter "P" etc.
4) Choose a microphone with a wide frequency response but not too much bass which can make vocals sound boomy.
5) Finally, the microphone must have a reasonable dynamic range so that if you suddenly shout it does not distort excessively, but it will also work when you speak or sing softly.

    Dynamic Range is the microphone's ability to cope with both very quiet sounds and very loud ones.



    For example, if the dynamic range is too high, when you sing softly, the microphone gain needs to be increased. If you then sing very loud notes the microphone may be too loud and give distorted sound and needs to be turned down.



    Most professional performers and broadcasters use microphones with compression or with compression added using a mixer or separate unit. This reduces the difference in actual measured sound level between the loudest sounds and the quietest ones. Basically compression acts as an automatic gain control to stop you having to turn up the level when you sing quietly and turn it down when you sing loudly.



    A reasonable dynamic range means that you can set the sound level then sing very loud or soft without having to keep adjusting the level. The microphone must not give distorted sound if you are singing like Whitney Houston and it is close to your mouth.

    Hi again



    Well, I am an old sound engineer and I am out of touch with the latest models of microphone available. There are two that you could consider but they do not have built in compression.

    Take a look at the SENNHEISER E935 and AKG C5, they are both good stage microphones.

    Hope this helps.

2-second delay with Magic Sing


i bought et18k. just the same as yours.its 2 days old and has the same problem. the technical assistant says that its because of the digital setting that new tvs have. there are two ways to solve this though:

1. connect the video (yellow plug) to the tv. and the other two plugs (yellow and white) to the stereo. when i say stereo, its not the dvd home theater system that you have but a separate one. if you connect it to the home theater that you have, it'll just sound the same, you still have the delay.

2. connect the magic sing to the older tvs hangin out. and you'll get no problem at all.

**TVs such as sony, samsung, philips, sharp and all plasma tvs including other newly designed tvs will have the delay since they all share the HDMI thingy that causes sh*t.

Hi im joe,
Regarding your concern the ET 3000 magic sing does not have background vocals at all. The manufacturer design the magic sing for sing along purposes only but they are now improving there future products to have that feature with background vocals.
