That can be confusing : you plug your new gooseneck microphone and nothing happens. Yet your other microphone works perfectly, in the microphone jack!

Why is that?
The gooseneck microphones (those who are slim and stylish and that we all like) require electric power to operate. This power is provided by the same as the audio cable that connects them to the console. The other microphones, those that are generally hand held, do not require this power.
