    well that clips into a beltpack or adapter so you'll have to at the very least buy that as well. looks to be a mini xlr connector. typically 3 pin. I would contact audio technica and ask them what you need to get.

    You just plunked down good money for a product that you know absolutely nothing about. Not a smart move.

    Its tough to tell from the picture.

    Go to the manufacturer website or search the model number for a manual

    If it has 3 pins its most likely an xlr style.

    Some lapel microphones have a 1/8" pin.

    Condenser microphones require phantom power. Dynamic microphones do not.

    This is why You Need To Educate Yourself BEFORE you buy things. 

    Find someone in your area who knows audio equipment inside and out. 

    If necessary, consult an electronic repair shop.

    You did not tell us what you want to plug in to...

    You're missing the part that turns that mini-XLR at the end of the cable opposite the mic element into a full-sized XLR... that will plug into a mixing board.

    You will probably also need an XLR mic cable in-between the full-sized XLR connector and the mixing board

    You will want two of these - see the second one, below

    and to hear anything, you need to connect the mixer to a powered speaker

    and best if this is mounted to a speaker stand

    The above are basically minimum requirements. We don't know which instrument you want to mic up... or whether you are practicing or performing - and if performing, we don't know the size of the venue or whether there is a PA system there...

    Check if it has a HDMI

      You would appear a lot less foolish if you avoid answering on subjects about which you know nothing.

    I'm pretty sure it depends upon what you are trying to connect it to.
