wiring a sennheiser E2 mic with an 1/8 inch phone jack

I am doing some low end pod casts and I don't like the built in mic on the Mac Book Pro. I have a sennheier E2 lav mic that has a bad connector and just bought a new mic for the TX.

Anyway, I wanted to adapt the mic to an 1/8 in mono or stereo plug to plug into my MBP.

I am assuming there is a hot, neutral and a ground. What leads would I wire to a mono 1/8 phone jack. Could I wire it to a stereo 1/8 inch phone jack to send mono to two channels via the phone jack.

I have never tried this before. I can only wire XLR mic cable. I just dont' have a schematic in the sennheiser.

MBP 2.4GHz 4MB RAM, 30"cine, MAC PRO 2.6 8 core 6GB RAM, Mbox, Neumann TLM-103, FCP HD 7. Pro Tools 8, Adobe Creative Suite, Reason 3.0, Macromedia Studio, ProAnimator, HVX200 with Firestore v4.0

Hello Nelson and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

If the mic you got is wired to go into the Sennheiser wireless transmitter, you need a power supply module to plug it into. Depending on the lav you bought, ME4, MKE 4 or something else, you may have mixed results in finding such a supply.

Here's a handy adapter for XLR to the Sennheiser inputs.
