Hi Evert and everyone,
Thanks for your reply. Sorry to stress about this issue again, but
the dealer (importer) in Brazil gave me no more than a week to claim
the microphone defective, in order to replace it.
So, doesn't it seem a nonsene that the mic wastes battery keeping
the LED on, even when the device is not in use? Do you think that
this is a consequence of energy that it accumulates while in use?
Have any of you heard of anything else regarding this "strange"
