    I bought this item for use with a Sennheiser ME-66 short Mic, and a Sony PCM-D50, so I am not a professional by any stretch of the imagination, however I am into field recording and I do care about the quality of sound I can get within the constraints of my small budget. For me this has been a process of elimination, buying gear and realizing that its not going to make the grade and selling it or exchanging it along the way. This cable was one of those purchases as I needed a simple cable to go from the Mic to the recorder or an XLR to mini-jack, and and BH search came up with a few products and this was for about twenty bucks. It does exactly what I was looking for, and more then I was expecting as I had initially purchased it with an eye to finding out more about what it was I needed to get a mono mic to relay through both headphone channels for monitoring purposes, anyway this thing does that, and it cost me a whopping break-the-bank [...]

    I bought this recently to connect my Rode mic to my 5D.
    Used it once so far and the XLR connection came loose a couple of times, which was not great...
    Could be a fault at the mic end, but have not experienced this problem before.
    Willing to give it anther shot.

      You never know when you are going to need to adapt from XLR to mini. This is a great product to do it and works well on small rigs.

                              I bought these when my RE50 was having problems "playing well" with my recorder (Sony m10)- I was a bit peeved I wasn't warned of the problem when buying the recorder and mic together originally, but this was such a cheap fix for an awful noise problem.

                                Initially, I did not have a transformer and the sound pick-up was not satisfactory. Now the camcorder works quite well with my microphone.

                                Using this with a Sennheiser ME64/ME66 kit and it works great with my D800. It doesn't provide phantom power so you definitely need to use it with a mic that has its own power supply, but if you need something simple and easy to get a great mic to work with your DSLR this is a good option.

                                It's obviously not going to provide as much "power" and control that a XLR adapter (like a Beachtek) would provide, but it's also a fraction of the cost.

                                Comments about Kopul LMT100 - Low to High Impedance Matching Transformer (1.5'):

                                This cable does exactly what it says. It takes your mic-level XLR microphone and converts the signal so it is closer to a Line input, such as for a computer or DSLR. I didn't need it too heavily, but it came with my Rode NTG-2 shotgun microphone. I could see myself using this on my computer to record with a microphone, but not so much with a DSLR.

                                On the DSLR, it takes up the 3.5mm jack, making headphones impossible. This isn't exactly abnormal for DSLR cameras, but I did get an accessory that converts a microphone level (3.5mm Male) to a line level (3.5mm Male), and splits to a headphone jack (3.5mm Female), and, with a 3.5mm female-to-female connector, it could allow headphones. However, I tend to use my Zoom H4N to gather most of my audio, and I double it over to my DSLR when necessary, so I think this will probably see very few days.

                                Overall, it does the job, but I'd plan on investing in additional cables to get the headphone capability or just filter the XLR through a portable audio recorder first. The product itself is solid and I could definitely see myself using it for run-and-gun shots on the go, but not professionally set-up shoots.

                                  This thing simply gets the job done when you're looking to hook up your Rode Mic on top of your DSLR. The cord is short enough to connect and tuck away. Love it.

                                        Its greats little plug that works perfectly with my Canon 7D. You might have to push the mini plug in with slight force but that assures that i wont get disconnected.

                                              I use this to convert my Rode NTG 2 to my Canon t4i's 3.5mm mic jack, and I am very pleased.

                                                This is handy to connect my boom mic to my DSLR for video shoots. If you don't have a seperate recording device with XLR input this is great to connect XLR to your device.

                                                  Excellent cable to use when I need to connect an external XLR cable mic to my HDSLR camera directly (when 48v isnt necessary for the mic). I use it with my Rode NTG2 and my Canon 7D when I choose not to use an external audio recorder.

                                                      I'm using this to connect a shotgun mic into a small, handheld video camera to video meetings. The thing that's great about this is that the mic fits into the XLR connector AND, if that weren't enought, the 3.5mm mini jack FITS INTO THE CAMERA'S input. It's like it was designed to do just that! Amazing! Believe all the hype you've heard with this one!

                                                        This handy converter terminates the balanced XLR male connection on my Audio Technica AT897 and allows me to connect to a Canon 5D Mk II 3.5mm input.

                                                            Does what it is suppose to do. Nothing special, seems cheaply made.
