Question about Shure 450 Series II Professional Microphone

1 Answer

Getting it wired right

I am an old Ham with an old Swan 500C Radio. Swan wants audio on tip of the plug rather than on sleeve. I have Red on sleeve, green on tip of the plug, all other wires go to ground. I always thought white would be audio but that does not work either. It turns off and on OK but no audio. What am I doing wrong, please. Thanks Chuck chuckn4mis@yahoo.com

How to connect the mono headset


If you're trying to convert a STEREO output to feed MONO headphones, the best is to use a resistive splitter network as shown.
There are adapters out there that simply short the two L/R signals from the stereo, but you run a risk of overloading the output stages of your amp.
The resistive network places a current-limiting resistor on each stereo output in series, so eliminating shorts and overload.
If using a mic-enabled headset, the jack has 4 connectors, the back one nearest the plastic case being for MIC.
Mono: Tip, Sleeve.
Stereo: Tip, Ring, Sleeve.
Incl Mic: Tip, Ring, Sleeve, Mic.
Tip is Left, usually Green.
Ring is Right, usually Red.
Sleeve is common GND, usually bare copper or black.
Mic can vary according to manufacturer. Seen striped colors, white, red, purple.
These thin shellac-coated wires are sometimes difficult to solder, so here are some tips:
Using a combination of fine emery paper, craft-knife and flame, try to burn/scrape/clean about 5 mm from each wire.
Copper should be shiny without shellac color showing at end.
To burn the shellac off, best hold the wire 5 mm or so back with pliers or fingers. The shellac varnish may ignite the whole wire if you don't block it first.
Diagrams and drawings should help to clarify the text.

The 3.5mm audio plug broke off on my Beyerdynamic headphones. I need to replace the plug. There are four conductors but I don't know what type of plug to buy (4-pin?) or what the pinout is.


Two of the wires are ground (-) and two are hot/signal (+). You'll need a stereo 3.5mm mini plug (try your local RS...they also call them 1/8" plugs). The stereo plug will be divided into three separate connections called Tip, Ring and Sleeve. The Tip is right channel signal, the Ring is left channel signal and the two grounds should be connected to the Sleeve or ground connection.

If you get one side of your headphones backward (out of phase, plus and minus backwards) you'll know by the sound quality and so reverse the wires of only one side to correct.

Wiring code for the jack?


You're right on the code, with the exception of the right and left. I'm an AKG dealer and spoke to their service department. Here goes:

White=Ground
Yellow=Left
Red=Right

To confirm this, I used a multimeter in continuity mode and tested them. This code is 100% correct.
