      Needed a solid solution to input from my SoundDevices 302 field mixer into my Canon 5d Mark II. This did the job. Well made, inexpensive and was delivered quickly. Excellent.

        Comments about Hosa Technology Stereo Mini Angled Male to 2 XLR Female Y-Cable - 5':

        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 a wedding with the intention of capturing audio (on two channels) from both a shotgun mic and wireless lavaliere mic. Since the camcorder only has 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 (stereo 1/8") 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 it would have solved my problem.

        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 and at a fraction of the price.

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

          Used for external microphones with camcorder
          May be used on computer audio output to "active" speakers
          5' cable legnth allows connectors to rest on floor if being used with tripod
          The 1/8" jack is molded and non repairable.

            Excellent quality so far but need more time to test it out, due to HOSA's notorious issues with the shielding. I'm sure it will last for a few years in line with other connectors related with HOSA - the right angle is great and important ENG component.
