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
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:
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!
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.
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.Read more ›

Great little adapter that I use on my Blackmagic Ursa Mini so I can add my Audio Technica Lapel mic and it works a treat!Published 9 days ago by Amazon Customer
Does the job but is very loose on the mini-jack connection. Easy for the mini-jack to come loose or move around and cause serious static.Published 29 days ago by BDM
Works exactly as described. I plug this into the XLR port on a Zoom H4n so that I can hook up a 3.5mm jack lavaliere mic.Published 2 months ago by One Brain Cell
