      I have been thinking of trying this for a while for my canon 5D mark 2 camera. I have had so many bad experiences with small mixers between the microphone and the camera, so I thought I would try without. And with this little cable it works perfectly. Two wireless or one wireless with one shotgun on the camera, it is much less noisy than with a mixer. And you keep the separation between the left and right channel. The only thing I really miss is the headphone, but that wasn´t totally reliable with the Beachtek mixer either, as you were listening to what you are sending to the camera, Not what´s actually recorded. So as long as you check the recordings in between takes, it usually works fine. And remember to adjust the levels to the items you are connecting so the Left and Right levels seems pretty even.

      The cable quality is thin and you can tell the product is of low manufacturing cost. It currently works, but I am not sure how long it will take for the cable to suddenly break. The rubber is quite thin. It is much cheaper then buying at the local electronics store, so I would say here you are getting what you pay for fairly.

        Way better than the adapter I replaced from @. Unlike theirs, this adapter is flexible and can be snaked behind my laptop.

          I used a H2 Zoom Audio recorder for recording interviews and was looking for a way to connect to lavalier microphones to it. As the recorder only has one stereo jack input, I needed something to be able to split the audio. This cable solved my problem! By allowing me to split the stereo input into two mono inputs, I am able to record separately on each channel (one left, one right). I then can simple covert the final audio into dual stereo in post edit. A simple solution at a cost you can't beat.

            If you are using the Djay app for iPhone or iPad and want to use headphones to cue songs while you DJ a party, you will need this cable. They make an official Belkin DJay cable for $ which does the exact same thing as this $ cable.

                      The expert at B&H suggested this Y cable so that I could connect 2 lav mics to my GoPro, using the GoPro charging port-to-mic-adaptor as the initial cord. Works great, sound a bit muffled with 2 mics but is usable for my needs. Sturdy splitter.

                        I use this to break out left and right from an 1/8" stereo mic out on my mixer. I then can feed left/right to seperate Xmitters for wireless hops.

                            I use this when shooting video on small equipment so that I can use 2 microphones simultaneously. Since much of my modern equipment only offer a single 3.5mm audio input(Tascam DR-07, DSLR, etc) this works a treat. Makes it easier to get by without a camera that supports dual XLR inputs.

                              I use this to connect two Olympus lapel mics to my D-75 dictaphone in order to record interviews in noisy environments. The mono to stereo is important so that I get one voice per channel and can therefore make level adjustments with software back in the studio

                                When I shop at BH and there is that extra something I may need, well low and behold they usually have it! I use this y-cable for connecting my wireless and wired mic to my cam. It works well and it was priced right too! I wonder if they just have a shop under their store and just make stuff as needed, because it all ways seem to come up from their hiding place as you order it!!! LOL!!! your great BH!!!
