Sescom DSLR-550D-HOCF reviews

DSLR-550D-HOCF A/V Out Headphone Monitoring Cable is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with Canon 60D Very simple right out of the box. Plug it into your camera, and then plug the headphones you'll be using on the other end. 60D camera instantly understands that it's plugged in, and you can monitor audio while your in movie mode (while recording or not). Playback of videos sends audio right through your headphones as well. Love it! It says that this is for the 550D, but I figured the 60D is close enough to the 550D (firmware etc), so I jumped the gun and went for it. Turns out it works perfectly. Couldn't be more happy. Timely delivery also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sescom DSLR audio cable gets Job Done! I purchased this cable to use with my Canon 60D and 5D Mark II cameras (in conjunction with Magic Lantern). The cable is well constructed so I expect it to hold up during run and gun shooting. It works as advertised although be advised that you will still likely need a FiiO EO5 mini headphone amplifier to achieve enough headphone volume (unless you have really loud low impedance headphones). I would have given the cable 5 stars were it not for the price although I understand that Sescom has to modify a Canon cable to make this one as other cables will NOT work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works! Works perfectly in monitoring my video audio for my Canon 60D of which I also use Magic Lantern on. I still have yet to get it to work on my T3i, but I think it just may be a software issue to iron out. Pricey, so that's the only reason why I rate it 4 starts instead of 5. Construction seems solid so it should last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must have for videographers When shooting video audio is an essential part of the production. This is must have to be able to monitor your audio source. The build quality is great and works perfect. The only disappointment is its price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happiness found in a cable! Using ML and my Canon 60D I can now monitor my onboard audio while shooting video. Sescom has been good to me, and I use another cable depending on situation that allows me to use an external audio recorder then line in to the 60D with a split to monitor sounds. The DSLR 550D - HOCF cable is my nice fit for when I simply add my Rode 2 mic onboard the shoe of the 60D!!!! Truly happiness found in a cable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Happy Finally got this from B&H and tried to plug in my headphone only to see that it doesn't fit well. The headphones have the normal 3.5mm jack.It fits in extremely loosely and doesn't hold snugly. To top it off the sound only comes in through to one ear. If you hold the jack with your hand just barely plugged in, you can get sound to both ears. Displeased. Will return!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Much needed cable After researching on YouTube for monitoring headphone sound on the Canon 60D I found out that the 550D by Sescom was needed. I'm not savvy in regards to DIY with electronics so I was backed into a corner and had to purchase it. An expensive wire which is very much needed. Shame on Sescom.
Date published: 2013-05-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I've tested and used the Sescom cable with my Canon 60D using the Magic Lantern additional firmware. Not sure why they decided to put a male thread on the headphone side- my Sony headphones also have a male thread... Occasionally camera end of the cable gets in the way of the flip out screen. The flaw is in the location of the camera's ports, not the cable.
