    • Q:

      Is the mic clip supposed to be loose and spin on its axis, allowing mic to shift when wearer moves

      • A:

        In most applications, the audio person attaching the mic uses a technique called the "broadcast loop" to secure the cable behind the mic to help keep it from moving and minimizing the transmission of mechanical noise up the cable.

      • A:

        Yes. This is primarily due to the fact that the MT830 is an Omnidirectional Microphone.

    • Q:

      MT830c-TH with AT831b power module

      If I add an TA3F-type output connector to an MT830c-TH mic, would it then be electronically compatible with an AT831b power module?
      Would there be impedance or battery voltage problems?

      • A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. Each microphone is designed for use with a particular module. The usual power module used with the MT830 is the AT8538. Using the AT8531 the microphone will work, but I'm quite sure it will spec differently. Also, please note that I'm not sure if the MT830 will work with the AT8531 when using the battery and not phantom power.

    • Q:

      Is MT830cW-TH compatible with AT831b power module?

      I have 3 AT831b mics with power modules. (Great mics, btw)

      I would like to add 3 MT830cW-TH mics to use with my existing AT831b power modules.

      If these are compatible, is there a product number to order MT830cW-TH with 55"cable and TA3F connector?

      • A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. The MT830R has a TA3F connector, but is not sold without the power module (AT8538). The MT830cW has a 4 pin Hirose connector and is made to connect to a wireless system. We do not offer a version with a TA3F connector or adapter. The MT830c has no connector and the customer can wire it with a TA3F connector.
