It's a headmounted lavalier mic. It's got an XLR but quite probably the cable isn't shielded properly, or the balancing doesn't work. If I hook up my SM58 through a regular XLR cable, there's no problem. Though it does deliver 48V to the lav mic properly. Weird.

Makes me think I need to cut the enclosed wire off (void the warranty) and see if I can solder myself out of the problem, solder it to a regular XLR connector. Talking to the manufacturer is usually a waste of time.
