Yes, you're right..it's a condenser mic on there.
The Headset is a Sennheiser HMD 280 - http://www.sennheiser.com/sennheiser/ic ... ring_04976
The whole story:
I purchased the headset without any plugs on at all. I don't know much about audio stuff, so I just told the guy that I wanted to be able
to plug it into my computer soundcard, which uses standard mini jack plugs (banana plugs). He told me he'd have to stick another plug
between the mini jacks and the cable itself in order to wire it properly.. so he did. He tells me it's a 6 pin standard DIN connector.
Cool, I get it all working and all is good.
Now the problem is, although the microphone works, it is extremely quiet and doesn't pick sounds unless I'm really close to it and it
doesn't do voice activation at all. What I was told was, that I need a preamp on it because it being a condenser mic, it needs more
power (the guy told me that he tested it with an AKG micro preamp, which he owns himself, and it worked fine - I cannot find an AKG
micro preamp anywhere online, least of all one with a 6 pin DIN I/O).
So yeah, if that is a 6pin DIN connector, I need a 6pin DIN to 3pin XLR (the mic standard) convertor and vice versa. So far, I cannot
find anything that supports, sells or deals with this sort of stuff. I've emailed a few stores, but they just happily ignore me, probably
because this is a random problem they don't wanna deal with.
So far it goes: [Computer]<--[Mini jacks (I/O)]--[6pin DIN female]--><--[6pin DIN male]----[Headset]
and apparently, I need it to go: [Computer]<--[Mini jacks (I/O)]--[6pin DIN female]-->[preamp]<--[6pin DIN male]----[Headset]
Any and all help will be greatly appreciated..from telling me who might help me to telling me what products will helpe me resolve my
Thanks for replying :D
