D – XLR
Upgrade Your 3.5mm Microphones
The D-XLR can convert 12-48V Phantom Power down to 3V ‘Plug-in Power’, which allows microphones with 3.5mm TRS connectors to run off Plug-In Power. The D-XLR is specially designed for our V-Series of microphones to trigger their Smart 3.5mm TRRS outputs with bias power from a standard XLR input.
Take Your On-Camera Microphone Off The Camera
D-XLR enables the V-Mic D3 PRO to use on a boom pole, allowing the V-Mic D3 PRO to record clearer more professional audio like during an interview. At the same time, D-XLR has no adverse effect on microphones like the V-Mic D3 PRO in terms of signal-to-noise ratio, total harmonic distortion and sensitivity like another model on the market. D-XLR uses a 3.5mm TRS standard wired input* that is gold-plated so that contacts on the plug make a better connection and does not loosen.
*Will not work with 3.5mm lavaliers wired for Sony UWP. But the V-Series Microphones can be plugged into a Sony UWP system and still work.
The D-XLR was specially designed to fit in the groove in the Rycote pistol grip shock mount handle. The snug fit and rubber surface offer more than enough friction to hold it in place while swinging a boom pole.
