  1. Hi and thank you for this video!

    I used your video to try and connect my MBM 1000 to my Samsung Galaxy 8 but I could not find a XLR female to 3,5 mm Male adapter in the country I live in (swedish websites). So instead I tried using the following setup:

    1 XLR cable (male to female) from microphone
    1 adapter (XLR male to teleplug 6,3 mm male)
    1 adapter (teleplug 6,3 mm female to 3,5 mm male)
    1 Startech TRRS adapter

    All of these adapters are in mono as you describe in your video. But this setup did not work at all, the phone recognize that this is plugged in but no sound is being registered. Do you know why this setup does not work?

  2. Makes sense that this should but wanted to double check. I wanna live stream my guitar playing on my phone to twitch. If I go from my mixer, though these adapters, into my phone, anything I stream on twich will have the audio coming out my my mixer right?

  3. Hi, I want to connect my microphone (shure sm58 beta) to my Galaxy S6, but at the same time I also want to be able to connect another aux cable to play audio. (I want to record live singing videos , so I need microphone AND a backing track both at the same time) Would this work ? If no, maybe you have a suggestion/solution for that? 🙂 Thank you!

  4. Hi can you please help me? I want to record my Skype conversation for my podcast. If I get the TRRX cable and connect it to a voice recorder device, does it work? Or will that only record the other person's voice?

  5. I wanted to do this, but I noticed that the mic requires phantom power and doesn't have it built it. Is there any way to add phantom power to a mic that doesn't already have it?

  6. I've tried a couple different sets of cables that haven't worked yet. Time to take your word for it (if it's on the internet it's real!) give these a try! Will report back on Wednesday when they're delivered. Thankful for Amazon's easy returns.

  7. I have a dynamic mic, xlr cable & 6.35mm to 3.5mm jack converter. Tried on both (android & laptop) its not working. Its not even detecting. Will a USB sound card solve the problem? And there 3 sections on the 3.5mm adapter. So I have to change it?

  8. I have an adaptor cord and a Neewer mic. It works the first time I plug it in, then it stops recording from the microphone. Or any sound at all. This is the second adaptor cord I've tried. I know the mic works, I tried it on my computer's microphone port.

    I am using a Samsung Galaxy S6.

    Any ideas?

  9. Can you pls advice..I got the TRRS cable with mic n audio female, but for male i am using a sterio 3.5 audio convertor ( from 1/4") input from guiter or mic(beringer xm3500) ..not working at all

  10. The mono 3.5mm to XLR cable is no longer available on Amazon, and can't seem to find one anywhere else. Can I use a stereo cable, but add a 3.5mm stereo to mono adapter to it?
