            This is an excellent quality Lo-z Hi-Z transformer. Don't be fooled by its reasonable price, this unit performed flawlessly and had excellent sound quality.

            Comments about Hosa Technology MIT-176 Low-Z XLR-F to Hi-Z 1/4" Male Transformer:

            If you want clean, higher level audio when shooting double system video with the H4N, or any hand held digital recorder with 1/4" line in inputs, this line transformer will bring audio, even from dynamic microphones, up to decent levels, by about (unscientifically calculated) 6dB, much higher than with the XLR inputs. You can now set your gain at 75-80 instead of 100 to get the levels you want. The Hosa MIT-156 does the same for recorders with only the 3.5mm stereo input. It is a "gotta have" for hand held digital audio recording with external mics.

            However, you will loose 48v phantom power using this technique. Make sure your condenser mics run off internal batteries as well as 48v phantom power.

            This product worked great on my EV RE-20 Mic.

            Brought it up to standard mic input line level on the mixer. No hum or noise at all!

              Hosa always comes out with the clever products! If you are like me and have a cheap, effective video camera with an 1/8" "mic input" that only uses line level signal, this is the cable for you. No longer will you need to buy microphones with transformers built in! With this cable you can use your standard SM58 to get great audio in loud areas...

                my problem was solved using these transformers. I was able to connect a low z input mic to a high z input on a presonus firebox, which gave me 4 mic inputs to record some drums. quality is sturdy and the mic cables attach firmly with a click..solid connection and a no noise.

                  We use it mostly to connect SM58 to Pioneer Karaoke machine and match the impedence. Works great.

                      Used these to go between xlr balanced mic cables and hi z unbalanced amp input. Excellent upgrade from using an unbalanced cable with an xlr connector on one end and a 1/4" phone plug on the other. These boosted the signal from the mics compared to the old set up. The description states 1/4" phone female but it is actually as pictured, 1/4" male.
