Hello all,

Sorry about making so many posts but does anyone's Behringer ECM 8000 mic make a humming noise when you grab it by the front thinner section? Mine makes a huge hum when you grab it there. I think it's defective.

Also when I get the mic near any power outlet or light switch in my house, it hums crazy.

So the question is, is this a problem with my house, the mic or the cable? Can this mic be that unshielded that it picks up hum from the electric wiring??

Check the shield connection to the shell of the XLR connectors at both ends of the mic cable, or swap mic cables. Sure sounds like a broken shield connection.
