When disconnecting the cable - press the little latch (pointing towards you in the last picture) to release and then pull the cable out.

Will this work with an Audio-Technica ATM-410, or just the Shure?

cbrislain - Antwoord

Just Shure. On Audio-Technica you have to rotate the plug six times clockwise and whisper a few nice words into it before plugging it in. I've always found that lullabies work quite well.

I have a 1/4 adapter on my Shure, is that process different? I can't seem to make the male 1/4" connect to the female XLR


Push harder.

When do you hear the sound from it?

Charlie Green - Antwoord

Bloomin' eck.... & I've been using cellotape, Blu Tak and super glue. No wonder I had to revert to the megaphone all the time

I don't know about you lando77 but I always blow on the female end (the cable end with the holes) to blow dry any moisture out. What good does it do to blow on the male pins?

Do these instructions work for the ElectroVoice EV 635A as well?

carterjim - Antwoord

This is useless. Why didn't you post a video that shows the process.

mperloe - Antwoord

Wow!!! Thank you so much! This is really great information. Now I won't have to hire people to come do this for me anymore. Can you post a video of how to put the microphone on a stand?

Thanks for posting this, I recently ran out of toilet tissue and have been using my Shure SM58 Owner's Manual. You're a lifesaver!

He's holding the plug with his right hand. But what if I'm left handed. Do I need to rotate it? Or should I switch what side I'm standing on?

Bob DeMaa - Antwoord

Managed it on 5th attempt , now what the heck do I do with the other end of the cable ???
