How to attach metal grill to ME-2?
 
I just purchased a Sennheiser G2 evolution with the ME-2 lav, and I am having trouble attaching the little metal grill cap that is supposed to cover the top of the lav. Try as I might, the cap won't go on - it just seems to small to fit.

Does anyone else with the G2 also have this problem, or know how to get it on?

Thanks.

Anyone have any idea? This is the cap that came with the g2 package.

O ring
 
Ben, I just pushed and wiggled a bit.. There is an O ring to provide the clamping force. At least that is what I did.

Thanks Gregg,

I was trying to force it on, but it wasn't going so I didn't want to risk breaking anything in case it was the incorrect size by mistake or something like that. I'll give it another try and see if it pops on.

Hey Ben,

I had to but a replacement ME-2 and the grill for me did not fit either. I even took it back to the store and the sales guy could not get it on. He went to get a different grill and that one fit. See if you can have them try a different grill.

may be i didn't get the point but if the metal grill cap you are talking about is the spheric one, antipop/windshield/whatever, you have to remove the one that comes with the mic first. try gently, you'll see that it already has a cap..

Yea, its the half sphere anti-pop grill. But the mic as it is now is just a cylinder with a flat top. Are you saying I have to somehow unscrew that part? It doesn't seem like it should come off... I'll give it a shot.

ok, the cylinder with the flat top with the senheiser label is the thing that you have to take off. you won't need any tool, just a bit of circular movement. what will remain after you took that cap off, the mic itself, will perfectly fit into the bigger cap. give it a try, i just made it now in one minute to make sure i was correct.
ciao
