recording applications, the CM Series can fit most any microphone need. Types
include hand-held, headworn, hanging, or stand-mounted.
such as Crown's patented Differoid technology,
the CM series combines years of technical know-how with durable, high-quality
materials and workmanship. These qualities are direct contributors to the
successful performances of our customers, and a primary reason for the success
Crown enjoys today.
Used by world-renowned artists such as Garth Brooks, Britney
Spears and Janet Jackson, the Crown CM-311A Differoid microphone is the headworn
microphone of choice for the live-performance industry. Featuring clear,
crisp vocal performance in a lightweight package, this microphone signifies
the quality and performance value of the Crown CM Series of microphones.
Designed for touring
and live-sound applications, the Crown CM-311A is a rugged
head-worn microphone with unequalled
performance. It sounds like the best handheld
microphones - full, clear, and distortion-free, even
with the loudest singers.
The CM-311A is the latest version of the Crown's
proprietary Differoid technology. Its cardioid
pickup pattern rejects sounds from the rear, such as
floor monitors. Its noise-canceling ability rejects
sounds at a distance, such as instruments on stage
and crowd noise. This results in the CM-311A
having outstanding gain-before-feedback and
Lightweight and comfortable, the mic's headband
and boom adjust to fit any singer. An included pop
filter greatly reduces breath noise and pops. Because
of the boom's unique behind-the-ear design,
it does not cover up the singer's face.
Two models are available: CM-311A and CM-311AE.
The CM-311A is powered by a 9V battery or phantom
power. It has a battery belt pack with an on/off
switch, a programmable mic on/off switch, and a "Mic On" LED. The
CM-311AE is a pig-tail version allowing you to connect it to the wireless transmitter
of your choice.
NOTE: Putting an XLR connector on the CM-311AE
and connecting to a mic input with phantom power
WILL damage the mic element. For wired applications,
use the CM-311A.
How to adjust for best fit and to prevent boom
Note: To get the maximum performance out of this
microphone, take the time to adjust it to fit correctly.
For best results, the CM-311A MUST be custom
fitted to a single user's head. This simple procedure
takes only a few minutes.
1. If the microphone is for yourself, we suggest that
you use a mirror to double check the fit as you
2. Loosen (just a little) the thumbscrew located on
the outside of the foam block, part way back on the
boom. This allows the boom to slide in and out, and
to rotate left and right.
3. Now bend the headband wire to fit your head. Put
the foam-block wire behind your ear. Then you can
bend the earpieces to fit snugly around your ears.
The back of the headband should fit firmly against
the back of your neck.
