The Deity Microphones D-XLR is a sonically transparent 3.5mm to XLR adapter with phantom to plug-in power conversion designed to allow 3.5mm-equipped mics to be used with XLR-equipped mixers and recorders, making it a welcome tool for sound recordists and videographers. Connect your Deity V-Series microphone (or other mic terminated with a standard 3.5mm TRS plug) to the D-XLR's gold-plated 3.5mm input, then route the XLR 3-pin output via a standard XLR cable (available separately) to your mixer, portable audio recorder, or external microphone preamplifier.
The D-XLR converts 12 to 48 VDC phantom power from your mic preamp to 3V plug-in power, which is required for operation of many 3.5mm-equipped microphones. The CNC-machined aluminum housing ensures rugged durability, and is sized to work with pistol grips and boompoles.
Convenient Power Conversion
The D-XLR can convert 12 to 48 VDC phantom power down to 3V plug-in power, which allows microphones with 3.5mm TRS connectors to run off phantom power. The D-XLR is specially designed for Deity V-Series mics to trigger their Smart 3.5mm TRRS outputs with bias power from a standard XLR input.
Use On-Camera Mics Off Camera
The D-XLR allows on-camera mics such as the V-Mic D3 PRO (available separately) to be used on a boompole for clearer audio during interviews and scene shoots. At the same time, the 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. The 3.5mm TRS jack is gold-plated so that contacts on the plug make a better connection and do not loosen.
Works with Boompoles and Pistol Grips
The D-XLR was specially designed to fit in the groove of the Rycote pistol-grip shockmount handle. The snug fit and rubber surface offer more than enough friction to hold it in place while swinging a boompole.
Broad Microphone Compatibility
The D-XLR is compatible with Deity's V.Lav, V-Mic D3, and V-Mic D3 Pro microphones, as well as most other mics outfitted with a standard 3.5mm TRS jack. Though the D-XLR does not support 3.5mm-equipped lavalier mics wired for Sony UWP, the Deity V-Series microphones can function when plugged into a Sony UWP system.
