    • Q:

      Will this microphone work with a ATW-T51 Transmitter?
      Asked on 5/9/2013 by jwold

      • A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, this microphone will work with that transmitter. Please note though, the FCC auctioned off the 700 MHz frequency spectrum to cell phone companies and has ruled that wireless microphones can no longer operate in that spectrum as of June 2010. Your system is in the 700 MHz spectrum and were affected by the auction. The FCC has also ruled that companies cannot sell or service any wireless microphones in the 700 MHz spectrum.

        I regret to say there is no "re-crystal" option for any of the discontinued 700 MHz A-T wireless. Our wireless are either crystal controlled (single frequency wireless) or frequency agile (phase locked loop multiple frequency capable wireless) designed to operate within a specific frequency spectrum. The RF spectrum capability of the wireless is determined by frequency specific components. Our crystal controlled wireless could be frequency changed within the band they were designed to operate in, but it is not possible to change either crystal controlled or frequency agile wireless out of the spectrum band they were designed to operate within.

        We offered a rebate program for our 700 MHz customers for about 2 years, but this program ended in June of 2010.

    • Q:

      Microphone works great for 5 minutes, then hisses.

      After 5 minutes the mic starts emitting a constant loud hiss, so noisy that we have to turn it off. It's not just being ON for 5 minutes; we tested that and left it on for 30 minutes with no problem. Then we started using it, and 5 minutes later we had hiss. What could be causing that?

    • Q:

      Can I connect this directly into the computer? (3.5mm) And if can, is it usable on the computer? (Like recording, talking on Skype, etc.)
      Asked on 12/17/2011 by ChrisJung from United States

      1 answer

      • A:

        Thank your for your inquiry. You cannot use this right out of the box with a computer system. You will have to add some type of audio interface that connects to the computer via USB or firewire and provides phantom power for the microphone. There are many available, so a quich search via your search engine for USB audio interface should provide a starting place for you.

    • Q:

      How to fit

      I have been using this microphone for about a year at my church, and I am not sure that I have been placing it correctly on my head. The boom will gradually move away from my mouth the longer I have it on my head. Is there an instructional video that I can view to make sure I am wearing it right? Otherwise, I am satisfied with the mic.
      Asked on 11/7/2011 by jcroft from Michigan, USA

      1 answer

      • A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. I think I can help with this. First, turn down slightly a small portion of the earpiece right at the "nub" (the end away from the mic element). Many people turn down too much making the earpiece too short to fit around the ear. You just need maybe 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch. Then fit the earpiece snuggly around the ear. Now, and this is very important, you need to use the collar clip. I find that most folks with this issue are not using the collar clip and the weight of the cable tugs at the mic, pulling it off the ear. Have the user put the mic on and then turn their head as far as possible in the other direction. For example place the mic on the left ear and turn the head all the way to the right. With the head turned, clip the collar clip on the collar at the same side where the mic is worn, in this case on the left. This gives a bit of slack allowing the user to move his or her head around without the cable tugging at the mic.
