Key Features
  • Ideal for Deity V-Series Microphones
  • Adapts 3.5mm-Equipped Mic to XLR Output
  • Converts Phantom Power to Plug-In Power
  • Sonically Transparent
The Deity Microphones D-XLR is a sonically transparent 3.5mm to XLR adapter with phantom to plug-in power conversion designed to allow 3.5mm-equipped mics to be used with XLR-equipped mixers and recorders, making it a welcome tool for sound recordists and videographers. Connect your Deity V-Series microphone (or other mic terminated with a standard 3.5mm TRS plug) to the D-XLR's gold-plated 3.5mm input, then route the XLR 3-pin output via a standard XLR cable (available separately) to your mixer, portable audio recorder, or external microphone preamplifier.

The D-XLR converts 12 to 48 VDC phantom power from your mic preamp to 3V plug-in power, which is required for operation of many 3.5mm-equipped microphones. The CNC-machined aluminum housing ensures rugged durability, and is sized to work with pistol grips and boompoles.

The Deity Microphones D-XLR is a sonically transparent 3.5mm to XLR adapter with phantom to plug-in power conversion designed to allow 3.5mm-equipped mics to be used with XLR-equipped mixers and recorders, making it a welcome tool for sound recordists and videographers. Connect your Deity V-Series microphone (or other mic terminated with a standard 3.5mm TRS plug) to the D-XLR's gold-plated 3.5mm input, then route the XLR 3-pin output via a standard XLR cable (available separately) to your mixer, portable audio recorder, or external microphone preamplifier.

The D-XLR converts 12 to 48 VDC phantom power from your mic preamp to 3V plug-in power, which is required for operation of many 3.5mm-equipped microphones. The CNC-machined aluminum housing ensures rugged durability, and is sized to work with pistol grips and boompoles.

Convenient Power Conversion

The D-XLR can convert 12 to 48 VDC phantom power down to 3V plug-in power, which allows microphones with 3.5mm TRS connectors to run off phantom power. The D-XLR is specially designed for Deity V-Series mics to trigger their Smart 3.5mm TRRS outputs with bias power from a standard XLR input.

Use On-Camera Mics Off Camera

The D-XLR allows on-camera mics such as the V-Mic D3 PRO (available separately) to be used on a boompole for clearer audio during interviews and scene shoots. At the same time, the D-XLR has no adverse effect on microphones like the V-Mic D3 PRO in terms of signal-to-noise ratio, total harmonic distortion, and sensitivity. The 3.5mm TRS jack is gold-plated so that contacts on the plug make a better connection and do not loosen.

Works with Boompoles and Pistol Grips

The D-XLR was specially designed to fit in the groove of the Rycote pistol-grip shockmount handle. The snug fit and rubber surface offer more than enough friction to hold it in place while swinging a boompole.

Broad Microphone Compatibility

The D-XLR is compatible with Deity's V.Lav, V-Mic D3, and V-Mic D3 Pro microphones, as well as most other mics outfitted with a standard 3.5mm TRS jack. Though the D-XLR does not support 3.5mm-equipped lavalier mics wired for Sony UWP, the Deity V-Series microphones can function when plugged into a Sony UWP system.

Deity Microphones DAKSDXLR Reviews

Connects y Diety Pocket Wireless to Pro Mixers

By Brian

I looked everywhere for a way to connect my Diety Pockets to a pro mixer. Finally, this did it. No I can get clean XLR audio from them to my MixPre.

This has been great to plug in my RODE Wireless Go into my RODECaster Pro.

Be Careful

I never got this to work. There is a slight possibility it's a compatibility issue with the Rodecaster Pro, but the Rodecaster Pro provides the exact phantom power that Deity claims this device needs. Unfortunately, their support just responds with broad, somewhat unhelpful things like could be compatible issue. The specifications say this will work with 48V phantom power. The Rodecaster Pro provides that, yet it doesn't work. Anyway, just know that you're gambling if you order this. I don't think my experience is unique judging by the other reviews here and elsewhere.

Perfect Accessory!

I use this to connect my Deity D3 mic to the XLR input on my USB interface. Works like a charm and is a must have accessory!

Flawed product

So hoped and wanted for these - I bought two - to work but the 3.5mm inputs not only are not the locking variety but they were so loose fitting to the male ends of my lavs that even a heavy dose of gaffer tape would not keep a usably stable connection with the lavs I tried to connect them to. Big disappointment; locking 3.5mm connectors seem essential to any workable design for such a device, in retrospect. Will try the Rode, locking, version now, fingers crossed.

Price = great. Functionality, well...

I purchased this for use with the Deity V-Mic D3 Pro mic. The price is great compared to the competition, but care is needed when plugging in a 3.5mm cable. The cable disengages too easily from the back of the adapter. Modest tension pulling on the connector can result in the cable not engaging fully and a loss of signal. I wouldn't use it without taping the connector into the back of the adapter with gaff tape. Oh, and the yellow clip just gets in the way. Remove it for a hassle free experience

YMMV with Canon XA20

By James
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2021-10-18

I bought this to connect my Deity D3 Pro to my Canon XA20 via XLR with phantom power. The XA20 is listed as "compatible" according to the Deity website. However, it hasn't worked on my camera. I tried two different D-XLRs with different cables and nothing has worked. The D3 pro pics up audio when I plug it directly into my GH5 and G85, so the mic works fine. I tested both of my XLR inputs on the XA20 by plugging in a condenser mic and I was getting good audio. So it seems the D-XLR is NOT compatible with the Canon XA20 as stated on their website. Bummer. I contacted Deity support and they have been no help.

If I want to connect my Røde videomicro to a recorder or mixer with an XLR input should I use this and switch on phantom power or will a dummy 3.5mm to XLR suffice without phantom power?
Asked by: John
The Rode VideoMicro requires plug-in power so you will need to use an adapter that will convert to XLR but also convert phantom power to plug-in power. The Deity D-XLR can do the job or you can purchase Rode's VXLR Plus (B&H # ROVXLRP).

It works with Diety D3, but D3 needs AAA battery to be operational anyway. Without battery it won't work.
