Designed specifically for use with the “mic input” jack, also known as "plug-in power," that has voltage outputs from between 1.5 to 9 volts or with our Miniature Stereo and Mono Microphone 9 Volt Battery Power Supply.

We use the highest quality cable available for this type of microphone application.

The Miniature Balanced Musical Instrument cable was designed for professional stage and studio applications, has greater abrasion and impact resistance, extra limpness, and at the same time light weight.

A larger gauge of this type of cable is used by in the pro music industry including large concert venues.

It is rugged, flexible, has a long flex life and high interference and noise immunity.

Each mic has a strong, durable Gold Plated 1/8 inch (3.5 mm) mini-stereo plug. High quality connection and small enough to be unobstructive.

These low profile Neutrik NTP3RC-B right angle plugs work well for recorders with recessed input jacks.

These are the best right angled gold plated plugs available anywhere, in my opinion.
