    These things are awesome

    Great for hooking up to a mixer with microphones that only use mini-plug. Work really well! Thanks, B&H!

    I produce corporate videos mostly product demos and interviews.
    What's great--If it worked it would probably be fine.
    What's not so great. The mini plug connector was bad. I lost sound in the middle of an interview and ended up balancing the connector on the head of my tripod. If I bumped it I'd lose the connection. I probably just got a bad one so be sure and thoroughly check out the cable before you go on site with it.

      I use this cord to plug my Rode shotgun mic into my Tascam D-40. It works well but the last one I had stopped working inexplicably after about six months.

      Female connection is loose

      By Jared

      from SC

      Comments about Comprehensive Mini Female to 3-Pin XLR Male Cable - 3':

      Bad cable. This is exactly what I need, but it doesn't work. Just like many of the other reviews state, the female connection is loose. The mic can't get seated. This is unusable. Unfortunately, I waited past the 30 days to return it I wish I could get my money back.

          Comments about Comprehensive Mini Female to 3-Pin XLR Male Cable - 3':

          Got screwed on this one. They have a faulty design. So it's not, you might get a bad one, they are all bad. Every 3.5 or 1/8 male I plugged in would not lock in, so there is a huge amount of play in the connection making the sound come in and out depending on if you move the connection etc.

          DO NOT BUY! Repet! DO NOT BUY! Don't get screed like me!!!!

          WHo are the jerks that would give this a good review, that would encourage someone like you or me to throw away our money?

            I have a microphone that need phantom power and that I can monitor the sound. I need to attach it to Irig Pre which has a headphone out. This does the job. I use the microphone with my Panasonic GH2 DSLR.

              This product is poorly manufactured. It doesn't seat properly when connected. I have to constantly play with the connection and monitor it to make sure it's working. Very flakey. I would caution anyone from buying this.

                For anyone who has purchased a consumer-grade lavalier microphone which ends in a mini-male plug, and then had to use it in a professional setting this adaptor is a must for your kit. It allows you to plug the microphone into a professional sound mixer or into an XLR input on a camera.

                          This is exactly what I was looking for even though it was a weird combination. The mini jack connection is a little loose.

                                I Should have listened to the other reviewers. There is play in the connector which makes it useless. Audio will cut in and out. I had a friend who is good at soldering hack this cable into my audio technica shotgun. Works well.

                                    XLR plug was fine, but the female mini jack was loose - so loose as to not make a reliable connection. I tried with 4 different microphones and only 1 worked sporadically. A complete waste of money and time.

                                        The female fitting was so loose it rendered the cable unusable with a microphone. I tested it with three different mini plugs and each easily rattled around in the fitting, cutting the signal in and out.

                                          Comments about Comprehensive Mini Female to 3-Pin XLR Male Cable - 3':

                                          I produce corporate videos mostly product demos and interviews.
                                          What's great--If it worked it would probably be fine.
                                          What's not so great. The mini plug connector was bad. I lost sound in the middle of an interview and ended up balancing the connector on the head of my tripod. If I bumped it I'd lose the connection. I probably just got a bad one so be sure and thoroughly check out the cable before you go on site with it.
