I'm curious if anyone knows (or can guess) how long the battery should last? I imagine weeks, especially if I use lithium and especially if I remember to remove it when not recording.
Asked by: David
They take 1 AA battery I used them for 2-10 hours every weekday, and I don't even changed the batteries every year. The battery seriously seems to last forever.

Will this mic work with Scarlett Focusrite 2i2?
Asked by: Gary
Should be able to work. Make sure AA battery is installed in the XLR barrel. Remove battery when not in use do prevent the Lav from damages from acid leaks. It's a great lav to have and audio is great. Have 2 for talking heads.

How to connect Sony eco-44b to audio recorder
Asked by: Nicole M.
Hi Nicole, What audio recorder? The ECM-44B has a Male XLR connector. If the audio recorder has a female XLR port it will plug right in. If your recorder has a 3.5mm or inch input you will need an adapter:Hosa Technology Pro REAN XLR Female to 1/4 TS Hi-Z Microphone Cable - 10'<a href= https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/828155-REG/Hosa_Technology_HMIC_010HZ_HMIC_010HZ_Pro_Mic_Cable.html target= _blank >https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/828155-REG/Hosa_Technology_HMIC_010HZ_HMIC_010HZ_Pro_Mic_Cable.html</a>OrKopul XRSM 3-Pin XLR Female to 3.5mm RA Stereo Mini-Plug Cable (1.5')<a href= https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1221867-REG/kopul_xrsm_015b_xrsm_3_pin_xlr_female.html target= _blank >https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1221867-REG/kopul_xrsm_015b_xrsm_3_pin_xlr_female.html</a>Regards, -Erin

question

To link this to a DSLR with a 3.5mm jack in a way that adds to the length of the cord, I could use a 20' Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable, plus a Kopul LMT100 - Low to High Impedance Matching Transformer, correct? The length will not degrade the sound, and I can go right into the camera?
Asked by: Brian
Correct. A standard XLR mic cable in addition to the Kopul LMT-100 cable will allow you to connect the ECM-44B directly to a DSLR. At this length would not affect the audio quality.
