Normally I'm completely satisfied with Hosa cables, so it was a little surprising when using this one there was lots of handling static around where the molded plug went into the camera. I was getting ready to toss it (not worth a trip to the post office to send it back) when something made me decide to try cleaning the plug with my shirt tail. It worked; the static was gone! Evidently the plug was contaminated with something, maybe oil. On the down side, now I have something else to remember to do with new gear that some day I'll eventually forget. sigh...

Ideal cable for short length connections

I use this cable to connect my shotgun mic directly to the GH4, as well as, sometimes using it to plug directly in the Zoom H4n. When using it directly into the GH4, I have the GH4 mounting in an Axler cage. The length is just right for this connection setup.

Nice, simple cable!

Needed this at the last minute to plug my XLR shotgun mic directly into my camera for a weekend shoot. Even though it doesn't improve the sound and I still get hiss in the video (which can be removed in post), it's still a great backup tool to have in case of emergencies.

This cable cousin let me down, and compared to others it’s very affordable. I wish there were an option for a fastening ring on the stereo end.

Good quality to enable XLR inputs for live-streaming

We were looking for a way to improve sound quality for church staff live-streaming and video recording applications. This cable provided the quality we desired for the price point we wanted to spend. The connectors and cable should hold up to the setup and tear down that we are experiencing lately. Overall, impressed with the cable.

Worked awesome once, but then...

I used this cable to connect a shotgun mic to a Panasonic GH5. Worked flawlessly for the first shoot. The next time I used the cable I noticed the XLR connector would not seat properly or make a full connection to the microphone resulting in a poor audio recording with intermittent static throughout.

HOSA Cable great match for Mini Recorder

By David

I wanted an XLR to 3.5 mini cable to enable me to use a professional microphone with my mini recorder and DSLR. HOSA cables are wired so the audio from the microphone is fed to both channels. I tried other cable, but the wiring was out of phase making for a diffuse sound quality. How does this work? Both hot leads are wired to XLR pin 2. I like the variety of lengths available too. If you want a professional recording and signal to both channels of your mini recorder or DSLR. This is the cable to use.

This converts the mono input from the xlr to the stereo input jack of a camera, but will it also work in the other direction? Will it convert the stereo output from a laptop microphone jack to a mono xlr input (i.e. both stereo channels translating to the one mono channel input)?

I think that is how I used it (a long time ago).
