    Hi,

    I recently bought a Behringer Ultravoice XM8500 microphone in a well known online shop. In the spec sheet I read the microphone had 150Ohm impedance, but when I opened the microphone I bought, in the capsule says it has 250 Ohm impedance. Is it usual that the products don't meet the specs? I'm a bit confused...Has anyone recently bought this microphone? Can you check the writing in your capsule?

      Paul_Vannatto In the body of the mic is probably a small transformer that converts the capsule's unbalanced signal to a balanced output. This transformer will also change the output impedance.

        Matthew12 hello thank you for your kind follow up to my question. It is a Behringer mixer DX2000USB, the microphone is a Shure. The speakers are GALE. All are attached according to the instructions. Not sure if there is a button which has/ hasn't been pressed....

      RexBeckett Is it just the microphone that is not working, Matthew? Do the music channels work correctly?

      Do you see the Sig LED on the Mic channel flash when you speak? If not, check that the source is set to Mic rather than Line. Try raising the Mic channel gain. Also try a different mic cable and, if possible, another mic.

      If the Sig LED flashes, make sure that the Channel On button is pressed and the channel fader is raised.
