Neutrik NC3FXS Female XLR Connector with On-Off Switch
Neutrik NC3FXS Female XLR Connector with On-Off Switch is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solution to feedbackI play in, & run sound for a six piece band. Mostly we run vocals through the sound system in small to med. size rooms. We have 4 vocal mics that until now have been constantly live. Because of difficult acoustics & "interesting" stage setups, do to odd shape stages, those mics weren't always in a neat row, resulting in annoying feedback. Trying to EQ it out left the sound muddy & vocals unintelligable.I tried switching the mics off at the board when not being sung into but that was to much of a headache for me & the one who wants to speak or sing & the mic isn't on. Using fewer mics was not an options either.My budget wasn't up for new mic cables with switched on/off plugs. Solution was found at Parts Ex. where for under $50 I received 4 Nuetrik NC3FXS XLR Female Plugs w/on/off Switch. With a laymens knowledge of soldering & wiring I had all 4 done in about an hour. Just beware of pin #'s & color coded wire! Better not to watch TV while soldering. I learned that the hard way:(As a footnote, my 1st order was shipped via Smartpost. When the envelope arrived it had been opened & I was left with an invoice & brochure, no parts. One email to P.E. Cust. Serv. & they swung into action. They had a 2nd order on it's way, next day, NO charge, via Fedex!! Had the parts 2 days before a big gig!So far feedback under control. Generally, no more than 2 mics on at a time. Also, reduced stage noise bleeding into the PA. Vocals are out front where they should be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save the soundmanIt's a custom to mute a mic when not in use. Never be silent because the sound man forgot to unmute you ever again. With this connector, you can turn off and back on yourself. And there is no "click" when you do it. And it keeps the occasional 'stage drunk' from singing on your mic. lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TURNING OFF SWITCHLESS MIKESMany of the better microphones have no on/off switches and remain on all the time unless someone's on a mixer board. It's easy to modify any mike cable by replacing the mike connector with this great device. Just rotate the red ring to activate or deaden the mike. Clever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a lifesaverI have used one of these for many years and I have never had a problem....Until one of my Bandmembers ran over it with a heavy amp.It came out ok but I had to replace the cord.Now I have two. They are very quiet. I use it with a high end Shure mic. Good price.

Neutrik NC3FXS Female XLR Connector with On-Off Switch

None of the answers answered my question.

I specifically asked if the connector was silent with phantom power applied. (example) A condenser head worn mic that requires 48v phantom power. I understand that it is noiseless with a regular mic but will it remain noiseless with 48v applied?Thanks
Asked by: 48v phantom power
This Neutrik NC3FXS XLR connector will work with phantom powered mics because it shunts terminals 2 &3 to stop the audio flow, hence the no noise switching. Phantom power uses pin #1 in the circuit to conduct the power to the mic cartridge so it has no effect on the phantom power. This also means it does not turn phantom power off & on. This is good also because most mixers do not auto mute when phantom power is switched off & on and creates an audible pop in the system.This connectoer is easy to install, rugged and is easy to use by rotating the red ring.I am unsure if this was your question originally, but it was the only other question I could find on this product.Good Luck

Will this connector switch work noise free with phantom power on a condensor mic?

Asked by: 48v phantom power
The product will not introduce noise, or produce a "pop" or "click," regardless of the microphone being used.
