Check the cable. It maybe damaged. Check your phantom power. If your going to yell into the mic...Turn the input gain down to avoid initial distortion. Not sure of your recording setup, but everything in the chain input to output is key.
You can probably assume the mic to be damaged if these things dont check out.
I have a MD 421.

Crazy children


Dear Crazy Parent Kanyae Halle with Crazy Children: Place a Military surplus Gasmask over the kids and tighten them down so they can't shake them off. Now they can't eat, they can yell all they want and the sound is muffled; and if they fight they will hurt their own hand when they hit the nose-filters. Or take them to an orphanage and show them how kids live that have no parents. When they act up....warn them that they too can end up at the orphanage...it works.

How does one take a Sennheiser MD 421 apart?


Hi,

At the connctorside there's a small metal plate with a serial number.
You have to bench it a little, underneath there's a screw.
Unscrew it and you can take the connector out.
What I remember after 25 years is that there is a screw inside which is loosing the grill and element.


I've written it before with succes.

NAD 7020e sudden volume drops, sudden distortion- intemittently


OK. I dont know the answer to your prob, but to let you konw that youre not in this alone, my amp used to occasionly lose considerable volume in one channel. this could be remedied by cracking the volume up to max for a half second or so. (Not a great solution!!) It has finally given up the ghost ...I have lost one channel and the doctor says it wont come back. Not only this but they claim that spares ceased to be sold back in the 90's. having said this I have enjoyed this amp for almost 20 years. I think its time to put it to pasture.

Suddenly, my outdoor speakers sound kind of "muffled"


If these speakers are two or three way speakers, it is possible that the tweeter(s) are blown in them.
Try and remove cover to check.
If the sound is not distorting, but just flat and muddy its the tweeters.
Put the other ones on this channel, to make sure it is not the amp.

My Zune's video's audio, sounds muffled and kinda distorted.


You could try downloading the K-Lite Codec pack that you can find free on-line. Most video problems are caused by a corrupt Codec.

Muffled sounds from speakers suddenly on our boat


Hi airnurse

If you are using a cassette deck for a source of music, then it will have dirty heads. This can be cured by using a head cleaner cassette. Muffled sound from the loudspeakers usually points to a faulty high frequency driver(tweeter). Is the sound muffled on radio or other sources as well. If so, then you have faulty tweeter(s) to any speakers that are muffled.

Of course in saying that, you should check that someone has not just turned the treble control all the way down, or the bass control alll the way up :) Pays to check.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

Audio Problems With MP3


First thing you wanna do is to try another set of headphones. If it still sounds muffled then theres a fault in the audio output section and these things are non user serviceable. Your gonna need to send back to the manufacturer. Good Luck
