Dear hive mind:

I am looking for a way to use a typical wireless headworn mic without the wireles transmitter. As in with a cable directly into the mixer. I guess I need some kind of device that can convert 48V phantom power to something less brutal and map the correct pins/rings into the mic cable.

Preferably something matched to Sennheiser's standard, but other options can work as well.

The intended usage is for voiceover/narrator in a teens live theater play.

(Yes I know I could just stick a mic on a stand and be done with it, but experience in this particular case is that a headworn mic greatly simplify things. And I'd love to keep that 2 precious wl channels for something else)

EDIT: Some more Ebay-dregging comes up with a solution for Shure mics, but nothing for Sennheiser mics.

There are cheaper "off shore" versions available.

Sennheiser MZA900P. I have about 20 of theses I can use my MKE-2 from G3 packs on XLR. They work perfectly.

Shure also has adapters for their connector.  It's possible to homebrew something cheaper, but why bother?
