    At my school we have this cable that connects our MiPro UHF ACT-707TE to 3.5mm audio jacks for our ipods, phones, computers etc. It’s unfortunately been broken and I can’t seem to find the exact cord again.

    Is it a custom job? Is there some kind of alternative?

    From what I can gather I need a standard mini-XLR 4-pin to 3.5mm? That doesn't seem to exist, so would a mini-XLR to 1/4" to 3.5mm work?

    Thanks for any help, we're in a pickle at the moment.

    Here is our cord:

    Nope. They only made one and your school has it.

    Yeah that should work just fine. From the photo it looks like someone cut the end off an XLR cable and stuck an RCA onto the appropriate wires.

    :lol:

    Shit.

    Yea it looked a bit odd, I couldn't find another one like it, figured it must have been a custom job. I thought the mini xlr to 1/4 to 3.5mm would work but didn't want to put in the purchase of it wouldn't work. Cheers!

    is it 4-pin or 3-pin?

    If it's 4-pin then it's not XLR. If it's a standard mini-XLR, get a multimeter and wire one up yourself

    Update:

    I ended up going for this ($30) and a cheap $2 1/4 to 3.5mm and it works a treat.

    Appears to be super durable which is great for a school environment and much cheaper than the $93.50 we were quoted by VideoPro :lol:

    Cheers for the help =)
