Microphone Cables, Adapters, and Extensions

Ensure top notch sound on your videos and live events using professional-grade audio cords, mic adapters, and camera connectors

Microphone cables and adapters are sometimes the most overlooked parts of a recording setup. They’re just wires, right? Connect them between two devices, and you’re good to go. But that’s not always the case. 

Cables and adapters play an important role in ensuring the quality of your audio. It’s almost pointless to invest in the best, expensive gear and then cut back on a couple of bucks to get an inferior cable. It would ruin your videos by picking up interference in the middle of a shoot and then get replaced every couple of months.

Save yourself from reshoots and long hours fixing bad audio in post by investing in professional quality audio cords and microphone adapters.

TRS/TRRS Microphone Adapters

Adapters like the Movo MC3 let you connect a standard 3.5mm TRS microphone to a TRRS smartphone. With this, you can record audio from an external microphone at a much higher quality than what your smartphone’s internal mic can achieve.

There are male-to-male adapters too, which are designed to connect mics and mixers with media recording devices like a DSLR camera or a recorder.

XLR Output Connectors and Extensions

XLR extensions provide flexibility and allow you to connect devices even when there’s a distance between them. The Movo MC10/MC20 extends up to 20 feet, making it perfect for stage work for live events and professional shooting sets.

Some tips for choosing XLR cables:

  • Check if it has shielded construction. This protects the cable from interference.
  • Use the appropriate length. If it’s too long, there’s a higher chance of picking up interference, which can lower sound quality.
  • Run your cables properly. Isolate microphone cables from other wiring that may introduce distorting, buzzing noises when they touch the microphone cords.

They may seem small and insignificant, but microphone cables are an important piece of audio gear. Find more microphone accessories on our main collection page.
