This DOESNT do what it says it does, but thats probably because of a Well Documented problem with how Microphones are wired.
I can't use this in my set up - using a 3.5mm stereo mini jack microphone into then XLR input of my TASCAM DR44....it just doesn't work!!
I don't think this is a problem of the Adapter, just the way it is used within a system!!
Rode need to do a bit of research to advise better on what this CAN or CANT do!!
i.e. - more explaining on Stereo/mono etc

Quality of the adapter is good. As pointed out elsewhere, the 3.5mm socket is a stereo one. If you plug a mono 3.5mm plug into this, it will create a short circuit resulting, at best, in no sound from your microphone.

The issue is easily solved with the use of a further adapter, a 3.5mm mono female to 3.5mm stereo male, like this one:

3.5mm Mono To Stereo Adaptor

So as many have mentioned the details of this adapter may leave some wanting as it seems to only work under a certain circumstance of mono / stereo a newbie like me could not 100% understand - bottom line is after reading some reviews and suggestions i bought the 3.5 mono to stereo adapter i have linked and then this rode adapter worked with my audio interface and many others - without it - it only seems to work on a select few - so it was an additional £4 but it now works and i'm happy - now i can use my android phone or tablet as a new input and play sound effects for my #woodyallenretro podcast - great!

3.5mm socket does not provide positive retention of 3.5mm plug. I purchased 2 off and the 3.5mm cables both fall out of the adapter under their own weight in a vertical arrangement.
Not reliable enough for production audio, would be a shame too find out halfway through a shoot that the cable has fell out by itself and you have recorded nothing!
Not the quality I expect from Rode considering I own a fair amount of their equipment.
Not decided if I will return them or not might just tape the cable in or something.

Solid metal adaptor that I can use to plug a rodemic or smartlav into my home sound mixer for recording or into my camcorder which has XLR inputs. Good quality connector and a great addition to my audio gear.

Product does what it should (in my case connecting a Rode Videomic to a newer Sony cam). But the connection was pretty loose. May just be my VXLR was a one-off but it was the VXLR rather than the 3.5mm lead on the Videomic where it was a bit loose. So yes it works but for run n gun type work or essential work I will use my Senny XLR mic and never the VXLR. Or maybe just take some gaffa or masking tape just in case!

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.
