      This is a very nice adapter. It's small and very lightweight. I can plug it straight up to my microphone and it feels as if nothing has changed. It doesn't have to go into the mic though, you can plug it anywhere in between the power source and the microphone. I wouldn't choose any other adapter over this one. PSC made this one just right.

      One of these adapters failed after 5 min

      I needed two of these for some vintage mics, but one of the two I bought failed during my first trial after 5 min of use.

        Was tired of the 12T power supply I always used, 2 9V, clunky box, but this little in line adapter is the perfect solution.

          Comments about PSC A4812 48V to 12T In-Line Barrel Adapter:

          I got an older MKH416 P48 shotgun mic which uses 'T12' power. Without this in line adapter, sending 48v could cause issues. Needless to say, works like a charm! Would be nice if they were a little cheaper, but they're not a common item and saves the whole shoot.

            The PSC adapter allows you to breathe life into older microphones by providing them with the power they need to operate in today's world. Its no secret that the 48V phantom power is the current standard to power condenser microphones. This simple to use device safely converts the current 48V phantom power into 12V enabling the older T style microphones to be continued to be used.

            Comments about PSC A4812 48V to 12T In-Line Barrel Adapter:

            I use this product in combination with my Tascam DR40 audio recorder which provides phantom power and my Sennheiser 416T which requires T power, so it would be impossible to use the microphone without this adapter. The adapter is self is well priced, sturdily built and extremely low profile - I don't even notice it's plugged in, as it takes up little space. It is annoying that T power itself is now legacy technology, as it would be preferable to not even need to use an adapter at all, but seeing as I have to, this one get's the job done effectively.

            This was just supposed to convert 48v phantom power to "T" 12v phantom power for the older type microphones. Well, it does that and doubles the output level from the conventional "T" power supplies. Great product if you need it.

                I bought this to provide phantom power to a used Sennheiser 415T mic. Does the job without problems so far. Feels well built. Time will tell how it holds up. If it lasts five or more years, I'd give it five stars. What's great: Very light weight, the price. Not so great: Kind of long.

                      Cheaper than the Sennheiser option...that's what really matters for a nominal piece of gear like this.
