This product is labeled as a TRRS Extension Cable but it does not work as such. I believe that ONLY the microphone is connected because the audio does not work when you try and use it as a headphone extension. Waste of money.
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.
I thought buying a genuine Rode extension cable was the way to go - obviously not. The cable had only beed used twice before today but after doing a sound test, which was fine, the cable decided not to work anymore so had to revert to using the mic on camera with the short spiral cable. Have tried it on various devices and - nothing!
I bought this as a result of a search for a TRRS extension cable so that I could lengthen the chord on my iPone earphones and use for Zoom Meetings, etc. It does what it says in the description, but they seem to not have bothered to connect the return audio so no good for what I bought it for. Recording sound is good. I will keep as I also live stream and an extension for the mic I use for that would be good.
