5.0 out of 5 stars confusing description 7 May 2011
the description is confusing:

"STEREO 3.5M MINI JACK TO XLR ADAPTERThe vxlr is used to convert a MONO 3.5 mm mini-jack to a 3 pin xlr"

so which is it, mono or stereo 3.5mm socket?

there are two versions of the vxlr, one converts from 3.5 mm stereo to xlr, which this one is as i discovered.
the other vxlr adaptor rode manufactures coverts from 3.5 mm Mono to xlr, which this one isn't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Confusion Abounds! 15 Aug 2013
By Robert Groom TOP 100 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Be aware that this adapter is *NOT* suitable for mono mini-jacks (those with only tip and sleeve connections) despite the product description.

I don't think the vendor can really be blamed for the confusion. It's Rode who are at fault. The back of the printed Rode packet declares:

'The VXLR is used to convert a Mono 3.5mm mini-jack to a 3 pin XLR'

And right next to this it has a wiring diagram showing connections for a stereo mini-jack plug!

I have uploaded an image showing the packet for reference. See above.

In the diagram, the tip and ring (right and left channels) are connected together and sent to pin 2 (+ve) of the XLR (as you would expect).

The sleeve (ground) is connected to pins 3 (-ve) and 1 (ground) of the XLR (again, as you would expect).

So which is it Rode - is it meant for mono or stereo mini-jacks or is it for both?

The fact is that all Rode mono mics are manufactured with *stereo plugs* - it's just that the same signal is connected to tip and ring. So when Rode talk about this adapter being suitable for mono 3.5mm mini-jacks, what they actually mean is *stereo* mini-jacks with *mono* wiring.

I have seen people state that Rode sell two different versions of this adapter. I'm afraid this is incorrect. There is only one, and this is it.

So, if you're intending to use this Rode adapter with a non-Rode mic, check if it has a stereo mini-jack.

If your mic has a true mono mini-jack (like the Audio-Technica ATR35s) then this adapter is *NOT* going to work. Why? Because when you use a true mono jack, signal and ground become connected together, because the sleeve (earth) in a mono mini-jack extends to where the ring (right channel) is on a stereo mini-jack.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works well, but the price! 7 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
Worked first time, and it's well made, but given the fact that this is just 3 bits of wire with a socket and a plug, the price is way, way too high

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy adapter 25 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
A very nicely made bit of kit for the audio/camera bag. Allows you to use the Rode DSLR mic on a stand-alone recorder or anything else that takes XLR plug. Easily worth the money

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT Stereo 15 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
Despite previous reviewer I can confirm this adaptor only accepts a mono signal and will NOT work with a stereo microphone unless you want a mono recording of course. Rode only manufacture this one version so make sure you're aware of this before ordering.
