Philips EL6021 elektrodynamische microfoon

Recently I got a Philips EL6021 mic:

It has the following specs:

Since the cable that came with it was unbalanced and noisy, making the mic rather useless, I decided to rewire the cable to make it balanced so I could connect it to my Mackie 24.8 mixer.

Some reverse engineering led to this diagram:

The connector can be fitted in each of three positions, giving the microphone 3 different impedances. See the side of the connector on the mic for the details.
It is absolutely noiseless now and it has a surprisingly good audio quality!
If you have any questions or remarks, please do not hesitate to ask me.

    Wow. I have two Philips mics that uses that connection, but only one plug which was badly soldered. Thanks for your scheme. Do you know where I can buy another plug? Thanks

    I am glad that I could help. That’s what this blog is for.
    I am not sure if the plug is still sold. I believe it is a tuchel (later amphenol). Maybe that will help you.
