    Title should be "3.5mm jack to XLR4F for headset"

    I did a search and couldn't find any topics on this. Does anyone know of any adaptors to run a 3.5mm jack headset (like the ones we all use on our ocmputers) to an XLR4F? I have a nice headset that actually stays on my head and is comfortable and was wondering if anyone had a solution. I've been looking around for adaptors but haven't turned anything up. Can I get some help on this? Thanks.

    Chances are you would need to build your own. I don't remember the pinout for the XLR4M for coms, but two pins are for the mic and two for the headphones.

    I suppose the other option is to lop off the TRS connector and just put on an XLR.

    My problem is that the headset has seperate jacks for the phones and the mic.

    Its more then just the connection, there is a way to do it, but it take a bit of work. You have to hook a battery and some type of resistor in line with the mic I believe. There is a guy on lightnetwork who does this, here is the link...

    So if you want to build your own headset, go to it.

    Thanks for the link. It looks like a bigger project than I thought. But then, I do need something to do this summer.
