I had a few requests for the wiring info for these mics so I put this little cheat sheet together. You can see that the 212 and 242 microphones are both wired up the same way but I separated them because they both have individual part numbers. The RJ-45 images are for pin reference only, ignore the wire colors.
For those interested, I’m still doing the microphone repairs for the HTX-212, HTX-242, and the HTX-252 microphones. There are a few more steps in the 212/242 repair so please be patient when shipping me those.
Right now I do all repairs for $35 but that is going to change soon as some materials that I use, such as the cords, have all gone up a little in price since I started doing these 5 years ago. I don’t do this to get rich but the 212/242 microphones require new cords and RJ45 connectors so I think I’m gonna bump up the price of the 212/242 microphones up to $40 to cover the extra supplies needed like hot glue, RJ-45 connectors, cords, etc…
I’m gonna set a start date of 1 JAN 2021. So if you’d like me to replace the cords on your 212/242 microphones for $35, now’s your chance to get it done before the price goes up!
I do still offer the repair on eBay but that price has to be higher due to the fees involved. I just leave that up there for anyone who feels more comfortable going that route.
