Sennheiser lavalier MKE 2-2r

I have 2 x MKE 2-2r lavalier mics. which I was hoping to use with an Audio Technica radio mic. system. The transmitter has a 4 pin Hirose connector Pin 1 is earth, Pin 2 is instrum. in (tied to pin 1), Pin3 is signal and Pin 4 is bias (+8v I'm told).
Should the system work with the Sennheisers?
I hope so anyway!

Regards,

Phil Cole

You probably can't disassemble the factory connector. What you CAN do is find a replacement connector (internet) that's designed for retrofit to your cable and install it on the good section of the cable.

Intermittent LOUD shorting sound


I would prefer to hear it to be sure which one it is, but the four biggest causes of noise in a wireless system are: 1) Something hitting the mic (check to make sure the mic is free of clothing, other people, faces, etc.) 2) If the mic is a lavalier or in some way has a cable that plugs into the transmitter, something pulling on it could create a loud noise. Check to make sure it's in snug. 3) RF Interference with another mic or some other interference source. Try changing the frequency. 4) Something blocking the signal between the transmitter antenna and the receiver antenna. This is most likely to happen with a lavalier in someone's pocket or under clothing, and/or if the transmitter is far away from the receiver. The SLX series is okay for what it is, but part of why it's on the cheaper side is because of its limited distance. Unfortunately the only ways to alleviate this are to a) Reduce the distance, b) get a stronger wireless system, c) move the transmitter somewhere that the antenna is free, and d) invest in True Diversity antennae for the receiver.

but I think it's something to do with the mic jack on the transmitter. Some units solder these connectors directly to the internal PC board and after a while, the solder connections break. Have a tech open it up and closely inspect the input jack's solder pads.

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.

This is probably interference in the wireless connection for the lavalier mic.
Try switching channels to find a clear one!
Or switch to a wired lav mic if that's practical.

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.
