Why and How to use the VXLR PRO 3.5mm to XLR adapter

In a nutshell, the new RODE VXLR Pro is a female TRS mini-jack to male XLR adaptor, with an internal transformer for a balanced signal.

Furthermore, this makes it ideal for connecting a microphone with an unbalanced output to mixer or interface. Having a balanced connection is important for long cable runs of over 3-4 meters. This prevents interference and possible noise. Also, RODE does say they use premium components inside the adapter to ensure the lowest incidence of noise in such situations.

In addition, the RODE VXLR Pro converts 12-48V phantom power to 4V plug-in power, allowing microphones such as the VideoMicro and VideoMic GO to receive power from XLR devices. And last, but not least it has a locking connector for a solid connection.

The RODE Microphones VXLR Pro adapter is priced at $39 USD. You can pre-order it from B&H.
