Thanks for this kleiner Rainer. Somebody stole my Roland CS-10 EM mics from my car, and I'd been looking to replace them for a while so I've snapped up two pairs of these. I'm in the UK too, so the delivery is not too expensive.

As much as I liked the recordings made by the EMs I always found wind noise to be problematic, and fabricated (sewed on) a windshield. I assume the windscreens provided with these are the square root of useless.

Also if somebody could explain which wire goes where in the  Neutrik L-shaped 3.5mm adaptor I would be very grateful.

Looking at the inside of the earpiece on these it looks like there is actually a speaker there. I wonder if these are basically the same as the Roland CS-10 EM mics, and if they could be modded to provide sound as well as record.

Ignore what I said above, it looks like there's a speaker there but from the product specifications on their website:

Open-air structure allows outside sounds to reach your ears, providing safety while recording in crowded environments

I suspect they are similar, if not the same, as the Roland CS-10 EM mics. In which case not capable of handling high SPL.

But I'll go and test mine now.

As I thought, they are not capable of recording high SPLs.

I've just tested using a 9V battery box, in front of my hi-fi speakers and they distort when I crank the volume up to loud concert levels.
