Works only if your recording device can supply power @ 2.7v
dopeNL 13.01.2022
It's a nice idea however doesn't do the job you might imagine.

As the device, you would connect it to MUST be able to supply a small voltage of 2.7 volts for the connected SmartLav+ to work.

I got this connector thinking I would be able to use my SmartLav+ with normal TRS inputs, however, this is not the case.

I contact RODE about this and they confirmed the device you're connecting this SC3 to must also be able to supply a voltage for the mic to work as your smartphone does.

I have been recording and am trained as a sound engineer, and in my experience, there are not so many Line input devices that actually supply such a small voltage at their line/jack inputs.

So quite useless unless your Camera or Recording device can supply this voltage.

It also fails to work as a TRS to TRRS headphone output and doesn't work with my TASCAM DR100 mk1, AKAI MPC (Inputs), Mixer Inputs other the Spirit Folio, Mackie mixers, Tascam us 144 mk2, Focusrite Scarlet 244, etc etc

RODE has been very helpful with this and advised me to simply return the item as it won't work in the manner I desire. Also, this information is on the RODE website, so my bad for not looking at this in the first instance.

I would then also ask Thomann to ad this information to the description on this website as it is quite important for users or buyers to know.

Essential adapter for non-smartphones
Victor Stan 19.03.2018
This is an essential adapter to use in conjunction with the Rode SmartLav series. Not much to say here. Does the job of adapting the SmartLav to use with standard inputs on cameras, camcorders or recorders.

Comes in a small box with nothing else included.

Good quality, strong connection and angled jack is a plus.

The Rode SC3 is a permanent item in my audio bag.
TillHavis 13.08.2020
The SC3 is designed to allow the Rode smartLav or other TRRS mics and devices to a 3.5mm TRS devices such as cameras and audio recorders. It is one of those items that I always have in my audio bag. It has gotten me out of a lot of difficult situations. One small con is the cables length. I know it is a patch item but a coiled cable would be handy and offer a little more length when needed.

Durable and great Røde quality for a TRRS to TRS adaptor
CelloCoach 12.03.2018
I have the other version - SC4 (TRS to TRRS) - for mobile phone, but needed the other way around, which this does splendidly.
