    • Q:

      How does the "rotating capsule housing" actually rotate? I don't want to break anything and I can't tell if I'm just supposed to rotate it or remove it first. The microphone is new so I don't know if it supposed to be stiff or there is another way to rotate it.

        Thank you for your inquiry.

        There is a white dot on the element side of the rotating capsule housing and depending if the earpiece is on the right or left side, the element should be facing the source. The rotation is 180 degrees.

    • Q:

      What is the part # for the BP894c with Sennhizer mini jack connector in beige
      Asked on 12/11/2013 by Marshall

      1 answer

      • A:

        The BP894c will NOT work with Sennheiser wireless systems. The two main reasons are that the "c" version is un-terminated (has no connector; bare-wire), and because A-T microphones made for Sennheiser function as 2-wire microphones, whereas all other versions are 3-wire.

        HOWEVER, the two BP894 products that will work with Sennheiser Wireless Systems are the following:

        BP894cLM3 for Sennheiser 3.5mm connection
        BP894cL4 for Sennheiser Lemo connection

        Either are available in Beige if you add a -TH to the title (example: BP894cLM3-TH).
