          Comments about Sescom 1' iPhone / iPod / iPad TRRS to XLR Mic & 3.5mm Monitoring Jack Cable:

          This product is pretty straightforward--it splits off the TRRS iPhone/Andoid-type connector into a seperate input and output plugs.

          My sole complaint with it is that it feels very shoddy in design. the XML connector in particular feels like it wouldn't last very long on the go. Other than this, though, this is a great adapter.

          Comments about Sescom 1' iPhone / iPod / iPad TRRS to XLR Mic & 3.5mm Monitoring Jack Cable:

          Used this product with the iPhone. It splits the analogue audio I/O from a mobile phone so that I can isolate the "talk" and "listen" channels. This allows perfectly separated audio for recording or amplification. We use it for a remote producer who needs to listen in to a voice session and direct the talent. Control room, booth, phone - perfect three way communication. Also great for recording a "call in" guest for podcasts. I use a DI to take my mixer output from LINE to MIC level and into this cable. Very, very practical for the price.

          Audio Monitoring on Canon 5DMkII

            Comments about Sescom 1' iPhone / iPod / iPad TRRS to XLR Mic & 3.5mm Monitoring Jack Cable:

            I use the product to monitor audio recorded from an external microphone (RODE NTG2) into a Canon 5DMkII. I was told by an employee at B&H that other camera audio monitoring solutions (Magic Lantern, etc.) can potentially void the warranty on the Canon camera. Scary. Controlling audio input during recording is overrated. The Sescom is a safe alternative. Just set a healthy audio input level in the settings and let it be.

            Also, it works on the iPhone!! Amazing. I use my iPhone as a field recorder using the RODE app. I hook up the Sescom cable with a boom pole, shotgun mic, set of heaphones, and my iPhone. Super slick and mobile system. Then I just send the files from my app to my computer via Dropbox.

              This was a great buy. I could plug a microphone into my phone and record with minimal equipment. This is easily the best buy i made in a long time.

                      bad intermittent buzzing sound.

                      b&h returned it no problem...they rock...thanks.

                      spend a little more and get a real recorder, like the Tascam DR-40.

                      Has a fatal flaw with iPhone 4

                            This cord has a fatal flaw, verified on two iPhone 4: the 3mm Jack is conductive and if the jack case touches the iPhone case it shorts the mic and triggers voice control. The workaround is to put a small piece of electrical tape on the bottom of the jack face which stops the shorting.
