    I have 2 Audio Technica wireless bodypacks, but the packaged mics are awful to the point of being unusable in productions. I also have 5 extra Shure lavalier mics from Shure bodypacks that are not being used (we purchased headsets to replace the lavs). Is there a way to plug the Shure mics into the Audio Techinca bodypacks? I'm looking for an adapter or a way to splice the ends. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    I don't know of an adapter that's available, but Audio Technica will install the correct connector for you for around $ 30.00 a unit.

    To me that seems reasonable, have you ever tried to solder such small conductors in such a confined space?

    tcsta, call A/T, Shure, or Masque Sound. Adapters are available, and much preferable to soldering on your own TA4 or similar connector; pain in the arse!

    The TA4's aren't that bad, but AT's LEMO connector is a gigantic pain. I've never been able to figure out what that connector is actually called (the push/pull AT one) so if anyone knows it could be of general interest...

    AT doesn't offer adapters. I called Tracey Brefka to see if they did.

    The connector is made by Hirose, and I've always heard it referred to just as a "Hirose 4 pin Connector". The part number is HR10A-7P-4S (Looking at the final letter, S stands for female, and P would stand for male)
