              Comments about Hosa Technology Stereo Mini Angled Male to 2 XLR Female Y-Cable - 1':

              I am sorry I didn't know about this cable and got it sooner, when I really needed it! I purchased both the one-foot and five-foot versions of this cable.

              I recently shot an event with the intention of capturing audio (on two channels) from both a shotgun mic and wireless lavaliere mic. Since the camcorder I used had only one stereo mini-microphone jack, instead of dual XLR inputs, to permit using external microphones, I was going to use my XLR adaptor (which was mounted between the camcorder and the tripod) to capture the sound. I plugged both microphones into the XLR adaptor, which was plugged into the camcorder's external microphone jack. For some inexplicable reason, it wasn't working! At best, I could only get a signal from one of the microphones, but not both. Since this happened only minutes before the event and I didn't have time to properly resolve this problem, I ended up not using the external microphones and resorted to using the camcorder's internal microphone instead. This was a last minute decision and undesirable option, since it was impossible to capture optimum audio with the internal camcorder mic, but that is what I reluctantly did. Later on, I tested the XLR adaptor on another camcorder and it was working. Too little, too late. I still don't understand what went wrong with the XLR adaptor earlier, BUT IF I HAD THIS ADAPTOR CABLE, I would have used it as a substitute for my malfunctioning XLR adaptor and I would have captured the optimum audio I had intended.

              Although it doesn't fully replace a premium XLR adaptor (which has volume controls and can be more securely mounted), this adaptor cable is the next best thing or at least act as an inexpensive backup alternative.

              To help prevent this cable's plug from pulling on your fragile mini-microphone jack (which also causes static), I suggest that you secure the cable so that it is not tugging on the jack.

                  This cable works great! I use it - Attaching mixers and Phantom boxes to my 1/8 input on my Olympus LS-11. The short length and right angle fit work perfectly for stealth recording.

                    This Hosa cable works very well with the Zoom H4n with self-powered mics like the NTG2. Much better levels off the mic-in with the NTG2 battery powered than through the H4n's XLR input (whether phantom powered or not). Very handy to have.

                      I bought this to use with the Zoom H1 to record live events. So far it works well. I shoot on the 7d and then record sound to the H1, which I connect to the sound board using this guy. Great cord to have in your kit, especially for dslr shooting.

                        Perfect for attaching two electret condensers to my Olympus LS-10 for quick location recordings. Add on ART's portable phantom power pack, and I've got a cheap, high-quality stereo portable spot recorder. Right-angle 1/8" mini is done right, so I can gaff it down and not worry about cable fraying or plugs moving and causing sound. Probably not the highest-quality wiring available, but for quick and dirty spot location recording, that's not really your biggest worry.

                            Good quality. Works well for connecting 2 dynamic mics to the stereo mic input of a portable recorder or camcorder. It does drop balanced lines to unbalanced, which does cause some loss of gain, but I haven't had a problem with that. Not for phantom-powered mics.
