    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.

    Shorted Out My Scarlett 2i2

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

      I just purchased this on basis of recording my shotgun mic(stereo 3.5mm) through XLR.

      From the moment I plugged it in, there was almost nothing but scratchiness. I could still hear my voice when I spoke but a horrendous scratching.

      After maybe 3 minutes of trying it out, my Scarlett 2i2 popped and then there was no more signal in the first port.

      I don't know what happened but all I know is now it is unusable and scratchy and I have to RMA my interface.

      I just purchased the RODE mini-jack to XLR and works flawlessly. Purchase that one instead!

        I tested this cable out on my Rode video mic pro with a Hosa Technology XLR Female to 2 XLR Male Y-Cable and I am very pleased with the results. There are no cracks or hissing and the signal is very clear. Can't wait to see how its going to handle the Alaskan cold air. good product very well built.

          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.

              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?

                  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.

                                    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.

                                              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.
