  1. 1

    Inspect the end of your microphone, paying particularly close attention to the size of the plug. Many standard home microphones have 1/4" or 1/8" male ends that are used to plug into a computer, camcorder, stereo system or other device.

  2. 2

    Look at the end of your wireless transmitter and determine what type of adaptor is needed to fit your microphone with your transmitter. For example, if your wireless transmitter has an RCA female plug and your microphone has a 1/4" male plug, you need an adaptor that will convert your 1/4" male plug to an RCA male plug.

  3. 3

    Attach your microphone adaptor onto your microphone and connect the other end of the adaptor onto your wireless transmitter device.

  4. 4

    Determine what size of audio adaptor you need to attach your wireless receiver with your input device like your computer, camcorder or stereo system. If your wireless receiver has an RCA male output cable and your camcorder has a 1/4" female audio input jack, you need an adaptor that converts your wireless receiver from RCA male to 1/4" male.

  5. 5

    Plug your wireless receiver into your receiver adaptor. Plug the other end of the adaptor into your camcorder, computer or stereo system.

  6. 6

    Turn on the On switches on your microphone, wireless transmitter, wireless receiver and camcorder, stereo system or computer. You are now ready to use your new wireless microphone.
