        This cable will accept the male end of an XLR cable or connector and convert it to a stereo male 1/8" mini jack with a right angle connector. Great for converting a microphone cable to anything with a mini jack input like a camcorder, computer or other small audio device. The right angle keeps stress off the input device connector and keeps the cable out of the way.

        Does what it needs to

        This cable gets the job done. The wire is a bit flimsy near the XLR jack though. I was slightly concerned about pulling it out.

          I use this with my Canon HD vid camera with a direct microphone. Works very well and the angle takes the strain off of the cable - very pleased and well priced.

            The molded right angle plug is easy to attach to camera using velcro for a strain relief to protect delicate (and expensive) mic jack on camera. These survive hard student use on a regular basis.

              Comments about Hosa Technology Stereo Mini Angled Male to 3-Pin XLR Female Cable - 15':

              After endless research on expensive quality camcorder microphones, I decided to try using this cable along with an already owned Shure SM57 which I have used in my home studio. The cable is specifically designed to use one microphone (mono source) and combine the audio of the stereo input of the camcorder. Since built-in microphones on most camcorders are usually low quality, there was a major improvement in the audio quality especially in the low end. (bass guitar & drums) I am now using this setup to video record my 14 year old son's Blue Rock band (ZENITH) outdoors and indoors. The only issue with the Canon is when the audio is setup to automatic it seems to compress or fluctuate the audio. I am going to use manual audio mode for now on. One more suggestion, I use a wind screen outdoors on the Shure mic and that dramatically controlled excess wind noise. The right-angle cable connection fits very well.

                  I bought several different sized Hosa Mini to XLR cables and most were malfunctioning in some way or another. They are very flimsy and unreliable. I won't be buying any Hosa cables in the future.

                        Connect your powered shotgun mic to your DSLR and have that audio on both channels. This cable works ok and it's an acceptable length for use on boompole. But it uses mini cable instead of xlr cable, and so it swims around in the sleeve at the xlr end instead of having a tight fit. I'll probably keep looking for a short xlr to right angle mini that I can extend with a longer xlr cable.

                          I use this cable with my Canon Rebel T2i to record interviews mainly. It's great because it has the angled connector which puts less stress on the jack on the camera and is easier to work with because it doesn't stick out. The only thing I could ask for would be for it to have a better XLR connector but the one it has is fine.

                              Using to connect dynamic mic to Kodak Zi8. Seems clean, angle eliminates some drag on the small jack.

                                  I use the cable when I connect a microphone to our CANON Vixia HF S20 and it works absolutely well for that. The angled plug doesn't make the cable stick out too far and that's perfect when you're using it with a small camera.

                                    This cable will accept the male end of an XLR cable or connector and convert it to a stereo male 1/8" mini jack with a right angle connector. Great for converting a microphone cable to anything with a mini jack input like a camcorder, computer or other small audio device. The right angle keeps stress off the input device connector and keeps the cable out of the way.

                                        This product works perfectly. It is used to connect shotgun mics to mini dv camcorders.

                                          This cable gets the job done. The wire is a bit flimsy near the XLR jack though. I was slightly concerned about pulling it out.

                                          This is a great product for anyone who wants to add a professional microphone to their camcorder. Many adapters run well over $100 but this product is all that you will need! My videos are now noticeably better because the sound is superior. Thanks to B&H for selling this great product!
