KMS 105 Problem - could it be the rubber spacer?

Nathan,

Look (maybe with a flashlight) inside the XLR connector of your microphone. You may find, pushed against the "back wall" of the connector, a thin black rubber spacer molded in a zig-zag circle, which you can coax out of the connector with a small screwdriver or a pair of tweezers. Once you do that, most or all of your cable connectors should fit better, based on the way you've described the situation.

Neumann uses that spacer because there are some connectors that are a little short, and they can rattle inside the microphone unless the spacer is used. But other connectors are a little longer; with them, the spacer gets in the way and should be removed. Keep it, though, since you may have to deal with a short XLR connector on a cable some day.

--best regards
