    Rode VXLR Reviews

    VXLR - Mono Mini-Jack to XLR Converter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 141.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well, but Mono is incorrect sfchuck is correct: this is not a Mono Mini-Jack to XLR Converter -- it should be described as a Stereo 3.5mm Mini-Jack to Mono XLR Converter. The product's package makes this quite clear, and the B&H description is misleading. Rating this a 3/5 because mono microphones typically come with mono mini-jacks, not stereo mini-jacks -- what was Rode thinking? If you have a microphone with a mono mini-jack like mine (Audio Technica ATR35s), you will need additional converter gadgets to make it all work. And then it works great. B&H appears to not offer the required mono-to-stereo mini-jack converter. After seeing the product for myself, I believe sfchuck's remedy requires more skill than I have. This product is solidly built! Pulling it apart appears very difficult.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy junk Ive found Rode support to be good and responsive, so this isnt a general attack on the companys products. Theyve replaced a mic free of charge without even asking for the defective one back. But this product is simply unacceptable. The 1/8 jack is flimsy, suffering from major wobbling and lost connections. This week I had the sound for a shoot ruined by not one but two of these failing at the same time. The recorder was set properly; a review of the files shows occasional signal but mostly dead air, as the connectors momentarily made contact and then disconnected again. Buy one-piece adapters to go from 1/8 to XLR, and not this failure-prone design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Solution to any Audio Disaster! I use this with a Zoom H4n and a Audio-Technica ATR-3350 lav mic. With that setup, I could've easily just plugged it in 3.5mm jack, but I've learned that capturing mono audio is better than stereo so I bought this item with the lav mic from my last purchase. It's great for what it's for, we had no problem using it, no hiss on the captured audio (important!), and for the price, it can't be beaten. This item is definitely an easy fix to any of you having audio problems! Don't hesitate to buy this item with a lav mic if you don't have one yet.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Be careful how you use it This product is excellent in theory but leaves something to be desired in practice. The unit is wired for use with microphones with stereo-type (tip-ring-sleeve) connectors. The tip and ring are jumpered together inside the VXLR. This essentially prevents its use with a mic with a mono-type (tip-sleeve) connector UNLESS one is willing to CAREFULLY pry each one apart and clip the jumper between the tip and ring. Since this unit is PRESS FIT together, not screwed, this action may destroy the tight friction, rendering it useless.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with Zoom H4N and Pearstone OLM-10 I bought a Zoom H4N but was upset to find that the TRS connectors co-located with the XLR jacks on the bottom don't work with mics. They're High-Z only. I purchased two of these. They work perfectly with my TRS mics, including a pair of Pearstone OLM-10 lav mics I bought here at B&H.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for mono 1/8 mini-jack As others have stated, this product does not work with a mono mini-jack (1/8) input. You only get signal out by connecting a stereo mini-jack. If you plan to connect a mono microphone (or split a stereo signal to two of these XLR converters) make sure you have a mono mini-jack to stereo mini-jack adapter on hand. Now if only I read the reviews before ordering!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well with the Rode RodeLink Wireless Filmmaker Kit I use the Rode VXLR converter to connect my Rode RodeLink Wireless Filmmaker Kit to my Canon C100 via XLR inputs, as well as to the Zoom F8 Field Recorder. Works like a charm. It's made of solid metal and feels durable. Not much more to say other than it works well and sounds great. Highly recommended, especially for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from VXLR Mini-Jack to XLR converter This adaptor is used to bring sound into the XLR inputs on the Panasonic DVX100 camcorder from an Azden 105 UHF wireless mic system. No problems. Works great. I'm told however this converter will not work using the WMS Pro series wireless mic systems.
