I always unscrew the grill and put it in the dishwasher.
Other option is to unscrew it and clean it wit a toothbrush.
In both cases without the foam, you can replace it later.
For me it was a way to get the lipstick of the grill.

I am having a poping sound after each breath. It can be heard distincly in the speakers. It may need cleaning, how is this done correctly? beta87a shure wieless

I don't think cleaning is going to resolve your problem. Perhaps there is something wrong with your mic and it might need to be sent in for repairs.

Can you tell me how to remove the mic head off a shure ut2 beta 58a wireless and is it compatible with any other shure wireless thanks

The Beta 58A head simply unscrews from the handle (just below the grill). It will fit all Shure handheld transmitters.

My microphone has no sound


Your gain adjustment should be increased in the microphone or maybe the outputlevel from your receiver. If both doesn't solve your problem, maybe the element has a problem. You could turn of the grill and you will find the solderingjoints, just tip it with your finger. If you hear some hum, your element has a problem.

Neumann U87 is distorting and cutting out

As condenser microphones 'mature' they may accumulate contaminants on their diaphragms, which in turn provide a relatively low impedance bypass for the bias voltage. To check if your microphone may suffer from this effect, hold it close to your mouth and breathe (heavily) a few times on the head. The moisture from your breath will condense , and if there the capsule is compromised by contaminants, or if it has developed other flaws, you will hear an increase in frying sound and/or complete loss of output.
Sometimes the capsule can be cleaned, thus extending its useful lifespan. At the risk of causing irreparable harm to the heart and soul of the microphone, this procedure should not be attempted by an inexperienced specialist! If in doubt, sens the microphone to the Neumann Service Department in Old Lyme, CT or another qualified specialist.
