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

      I purchased this product based solely on the product description unsure if it would work with my Iphone. I received it a couple of days later I opened the package I plugged it into my Iphone my head phones my Rode NTG 2 mic. I then opened up the free app from Tascam for recording audio and YES it works and works well it does.
      Thanks for the accurate product description. It would have really bummed me out if it did not work.

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

      If you use your I-Phone to do radio remotes, this is what you need. You'll be able to use headphones for monitoring and a decent mic for interviewing, announcing, etc. The only weak link is the jack in the phone itself, so treat it well!

      A well made cable.

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

      Can be used on iPhone or Blackberry, doesn't seem to work on all smart phones however. We use it to record interviews into an iPhone then email the clips back to the station. Can also be used for call in interviews for live events. We have found that the user cannot hear what is coming into the mic but can hear the station/person talking to on the other end of the call. Person at the station can clearly hear signal into the mic/phone so it still works fine for it's intended purpose. Make sure your headphone and mic leads are short so you are not dragging cables around. Sound quality and level are 10/10 for a phone device. You would be crazy to spend more money on a full blown phone interface! This device is simple to use and very effective.

      Works fine, but could be thicker gauge.

            Works as intended, however, at this price I expected to see much thicker gauge wire. You can get the same or thicker wire for 20% of the cost elsewhere by searching with the letters trrs.

              We're updating our remote gear to use Skype to Skype Voice via Ipad and didn't want to spend a ton of money on a phone mixer so this adapter was the perfect solution.

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

              This is a must have to get PRO Video quality out of an iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, or other mobile camera. I use this cord in conjunction with a self-powered Sennhiser shotgun mic and a mini steadycam. Add an camera such as the 1080p iPhone 4s and you have the ultimate run-and-gun rig with built-in editing.

              The audio tap is useful in calibrating and reviewing footage and determining mic placement needs. Unfortunately you cannot monitor the audio as it is being recorded. I believe this is a limitation of the iPhone though, not a fault of the cable.

              The cable is well made and features top grade connectors.

              I'd definitely recommend this product.
