To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Just a note for other hasty buyers like me - this DOES NOT work with a standard Rode Lav mic - this is designed for the iphone version of the Rode Lav. So if you are looking for an extension cable to plug an exiting stand Rode lav into your camera/sound recorder, then this is not the droid you are looking for.
I didn't expect to find much difference in an extension cable, but I've tried a few of these "trrs" style extensions and this was by far the best. This is expensive at nearly £20, but it does the job very well.
There was noise introduced by many of these other leads, admittedly at a low level, but definitely audible (hum). This lead does not suffer the same issue. I cut open one of the "other" leads, and it was constructed correctly (properly shielded cable), but persumably the copper wasn't up-to-grade as it still performed badly.
Not only does this lead perform well - it also is the the longest and the thinnest cable - making it much more practical to carry around.
Though it's very long - I'd have preferred an option to have a shorter extension cable - it does work perfectly. I use it with half on the cable curled up and tie-wrapped. It is a very thin cable so I'm cautious that it's not left lying around where anyone can trip over it or a roller chair go over it.
If you use the rode SmartLav+ for interviews, then this is a great extension cable - 20 feet , 6 meters - just what you need for outside video work. It's thin and light, which is exactly what you need . I intend to buy a couple more.
