Used it with a Sony 7S3 and Zoom H4N Pro. One crackle and that was it, totally dead. Not worth a return as I live in the UK.

This little guy saved me when I could not monitor my audio with headphones while running the audio through the camera. i can now plug in my H4n zoom with this cord and monitor the audio with the zoom. Great little cord.

Monitor audio from H4n to Canon T4i

Found this when I was checking out a video on monitoring audio to my DSLR. Now I have a headphone jack to listen to audio.

Line out jack too loose

The sound quality and attenuation seem fine, but the line out jack does NOT fit tightly into the recorder. It pulls out with the slightest of a pull. It's not the fault of the recorder because when I swap ends and put the angled jack into the recorder instead of the camera, it snaps in snugly. Disappointing given the price of this cable and I'm returning.

Ok, ladies and germs, this is a must have accessory for anyone doing video with a DSLR that doesn't have audio output, with this cable you can finally monitor your audio coming from a mic or protable digital recorder into your camera, finally! It's a must have to step upo your video/audio quality

It's a great little cable that give audio monitoring and a nice padded line into my Canon 7D, from the Zoom H2 (upgrading to a Tascam DR-40). My only con, and it could just be my cable, is that the headphones go in and out, but it's not consistent.

Handy accessory for the Zoom H4N

By Sean
Rated 4 out of 5

I still have the Zoom H4N audio recorder, which has been around a lot longer than the newer H6, but has long been a popular audio tool for DSLR filmmakers. The one downside was always there is only one headphone output and no way of feeding reference audio directly to a camera. This solves that problem by allowing you to feed a mic-level signal to your camera while also simultaneously monitoring on headphones. I do with the cable was a bit longer, because I like to clamp my audio recorder to a tripod leg. Another good use scenario is if you have a sound recordist booming a mic on set, they can use this cable to monitor the signal and plug the mic output into a wireless beltpack transmitter to send a reference audio signal back to the camera.

This attenuator cable is -25 dB. Other cables are -35dB. What cable is more suitable for Tascam DR40, DR40X ?
Asked by: Michael
If using this to connect a DR40 into a camera, the -25db cable would be fine to ensure a strong enough level into the preamp of the camera while not overloading it.

question

Does this work with a Panasonic GH3?
Asked by: Efrem
So long as the camera has a 3.5 mm input this will do its job. From memory some of the earlier gh line have 2.5 mm but that may be the gh2. either way you can pick up a 2.5 to 3.5 mm for a few dollars here or anywhere that sells audio cables. this cable simply reduces the line out from a recorder and turns it to a mic level. It works well and allows much better control and quality in your camera, i use it almost daily doing real estate videos.

Will this work to connect my Canon t4i to my Zoom H1? Need to be sure.
Asked by: Anonymous
I use it to record audio from a zoom h4 straight into the memory card of a Canon 70D. The audio quality is better than what I get from the camera but not as good as the one I get from the zoom h4.

I would like to connect the audio output of the headphone jack of my JVC HM750 video camera into my GoPro camera. Is this the proper Headphone Tap Cable to do so or would you recommend another type of Headphone Tap Cable sold by B&H?
Asked by: Bill G.
Hi, I believe that this would work to pass a mic-level signal to your GoPro. I have never used it for that purpose, but I think it would work.
