    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. No, this will not work with the AT898cT5. This is a wireless microphone. This power module is for the wired versions of this mic.

    The AT8537 power module comes with the AT898 lavalier mic. Is the power module still required if I am using an external phantom power source?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. The power module attached to some condenser microphones provides several important functions. First, it converts the 11 – 52 VDC phantom power into a smaller DC bias voltage used to power the FET impedance matching circuit inside the microphone. Also, it provides low frequency roll off, supplies battery power if phantom power is not available, converts the signal to the proper impedance and balances the output. The power module is a necessary component.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    The "straight" line = normal frequency response.
    The "angled" line = low frequency roll off.

    The roll-off might be used in environments where there is a lot of unwanted low-end information (i.e. sounds/noise coming from HVAC units).

    Please see the spec's of your microphone to see where the roll-off occurs.

    Answer: 
    The AT899 is not compatible with the PRO 88W. As an alternative, I recommend purchasing the MT830mW.

    If you have any further questions, please contact audio-solutions@atus.com.

    Thanks!

    How to get power to work

    I just got the AT8537 with AT899 microphone. I got a cable to convert the XLR into 1/4" and then an adapter to convert 1/4" into 3.5mm and plugged it into my laptop.

    The volume of the microphone is extremely low, and it makes no difference whether there is a battery inside the power module or not. Is it normal that the volume is so low? What part of this isn't working right? I tried with 2 different batteries, the one included with the package and another one.

    Also, what is the normal battery life with the power module?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. Please note that in your configuration you must have the battery installed. Also, you must be going into a microphone level input. If the input is line level the volume will be very low and noisy. Please note that all Mac computers have line level inputs. The battery life for this power module is 1200 hours typical (alkaline).
