Question about Sennheiser SKM100845B Professional Microphone

1 Answer

Live Microphones When I sing into the mic, my mouth is typically RIGHT ON the actual head of the mic. Lately, two of my mics have been "shocking" me. Yes, physically sending some sort of electric current through my mouth. I checked all of the cables, turned off the phantom power in the PA, and made sure that the problem was acutally coming from the mics. And these aren't cheap mics, either. One is an Audio-Technica and the other is a Seinheiser (sp?).Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm tired of being afraid of my mics kicking my ass.

    I had the same problem at a different house. I doubt the same exact problem has occurred at two different houses, but I will try this. How does one "check" the earth ground?

I get little sound out of the microphone spots onm my DA-X10Pro. I have a karaoke THE SINGING MACHINE. When I use my karaokee machine mic plug in the mic works fine...but any voice into the mic...

The mics on the singing machine are very low end mics and MAY not work on your other unit. The Voco has very sensitvie inputs to use with "professional" type microphones. The Singing machine mics are going to be fairly high output and likely to overload the voco inputs. Procure some professional mics like Shure, AKG, Sennheiser or others and don't forget to use a balanced to unbalanced adapter or cable on the mics.

I hear a "pop" from the microphone when singing. What causes this?

very common problem caused by pressure waves, try singing off mic but on axis so maybe a 6inches away.
or buy a pop shield (transparent audio foam to cover the mic capsule)

should sort it out, if this does not work then the mic may be damaged.

hope this helps
thanks for using FixYa
