A condenser mic. requires "phantom power" usually supplied by a mixing desk. Without this, there will be no output signal from the mic.

What computer are you using?

Is the reverb caused by picking up the speaker output? You can't have a monitoring speaker feeding back into the microphone.

Welcome to the world of STUDIO microphones. Super quality BUT you must have a studio to use them. You can't have any local speaker playing into them. You often use headphones lest your monitor speakers will feedback. At the high frequency capability of these mics, you can fry your amps with oscillations above what you can hear!

you first 3 people are idiots... maybe if you had worked with the hardware you would know how the mic works because its obvious you don't. The 4th person is correct because this is exactly how i use the mic and it captures sound in stereo format beautiful when set up rite. Using it in mono, whether use keep on one channel or two drastically reduces the crisp sound that this mic can record.

Not to be rude....For 75.00, you can replace it with a new one. It would cost more to have someone fix it. Obviously the drop has damaged it to the point where it doesn't work. Unless you are apt to take it apart and view all of the internal parts/wires what have you. I do not advise though if you are not comfortable doing so.

1. Try the microphone on another USB port and check.
2. If not OK, try the microphone on another computer and check.
3. If OK on another computer, re-install it or recover the O.S. from a backup.
4. If on another computer the same problem exists, the microphone could have a internal control defect.

This kind of problem is very common when you have a computer that has been formatted or some kind of error occurred that required it to remove some part of the drivers designed to control the external devices. In other words, the driver which was responsible for handling this device is no longer available on your computer and as such, the computer cannot handle it unless it is reinstalled.
To do this, there are several methods by which you can go.
First of all, you can insert the disc that came with the device when it was bought and connect the device. When it asks you to install the driver, all you have to do is to set it to read from the CD-rom and it will automatically find the drivers and install them too.
Secondly, if you cannot find the disc that came with the device, you can search online for it and download it to a safe location on your computer and set it to read from that location. If you cannot find the driver, you can drop the complete make and model of the device and i would help you to get the required drivers to make your device function properly.
Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using FixYa.

the usb mic can't be used with the m box, it can be used as a source in your audio software however. When you assign your audio sources look for USB Codec in the choices. I have a USB mic and it works great
