Sorry, that will not work. Typically, it is not possible to use one manufacturers transmitter with another manufacturers receiver. The two manufacturers use different tone-key squelch, different noise reduction, and different companding schemes.
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.
You need a multimeter to check this.
The black wire is customarily ground and should go to the pin that measures a dead short to the metallic case of the mike.
The red and blue wires are connected to the secondary of a balanced transformer and can be interchanged with no problem.
You can get a line drawing of the mike connector correctly identified in the user guide and that can be downloaded here:
Shure SM57 manual
I take it they are the wires to the diaphragm not the cable (XLR) connector.Be very carefull when soldering the wires back on. A small solder iron with a pointed tip works best. The positve terminal should be marked with a small red dot.The red wire goes there and the black on the negative. Be carefull and take your time.
The wire coming from the switch if it has one will go to pin 2 as it is hot(+ve). Pin 3 is cold (-ve) and pin 1 is gound/shield which will make contact when the XLR connector is mounted back in the mike secured with the set screw. There should be a small hole in the side of the base of the mike that the set screw lines up with. Usind the correct size of flat bladed screw driver, back this screw out counter clockwise to secure the connector. If that is wrong, get back to me and i will hunt up my Shure wiring diagrams. If pin 2 and 3 are backwards the mike will be out of phase. Hope this helps.
