    • Q:

      Can I plug the microfone in my pc?
      Asked on 7/8/2015 by DaviDBxD from Romania

      1 answer

      • A:

        As long as your computer has a dedicated 3.5 mm MICROPHONE jack, yes, the microphone will plug directly into it.
        If it does NOT have a dedicated microphone jack but has a single combined headphone/microphone jack, you will need to use an adapter such as the KM-IPHONE-MIC smartphone adapter available from kvconnection.com between the microphone and the computer.

    • Q:

      hi, can I connect an 10 meers extention cable to the ATR6250 MIC?

      Thank you, I am connecting the ATR6250 to a panasonic ag-ac7 camcorder which it has a 3.5mm input, the question is if I can use a extention cable so I can place the mic on a table 10 meters (30 feet) away form the cam?

        Thank you for your inquiry. I think you are opening yourself up to picking up noise. An unbalanced cable needs to be as short as possible.

    • Q:

      Is the ATR-6250 compatible with an iPad Mini? Would I need any extra adapters to make it work?

      This is to capture live audio in an interview setting outside.
      Asked on 1/29/2014 by Stephen from Boston, MA, USA

      1 answer

      • A:

        iPods, iPads, iPhones, and other smart devices of the sort, feature a Headphone Output, not a microphone input. HOWEVER, there is an adapter from KVconnection.com called the KM-IPHONE-MIC that will allow you to connect an external microphone, such as the ATR6250, to such device.

        In other words, you will need the KM-IPHONE-MIC to connect an ATR6250 to an iPad Mini.

        Thanks!

        Thank you for your inquiry. The body of the microphone unscrews just below the switch. The battery housing is in the lower half.

    • Q:

      Can I use the ATR6250 stereo condenser mic with a Kodak Zi10 Playtouch?

      I want to improve the sound quality of the videos I record because at present, it is indeed poor. The ATR3350 mic was the accessory listed for the camera on Kodak's website but I was wondering if the ATR6250 would give me better sound quality

      • A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. I Believe your Playtouch has 3.5mm stereo microphone input. If so this mic should work.

    • Q:

      i cant get any sound?

      hi i just purchased one of these mics but when i plug it into my laptop i cannot seem to get any sound out of it unless i use the microphone bost on indows 7, otherwise it doesnt seem to be reading it at all unless i am literaly about an inch or two from the mic speaking extremely loudly, same as plugging it into my iphone 4s, it will not pick it up at all, (or might not be noticed since it keeps the internal mic on itself too) but again my main issue here is that the mic won't pick up much sound, wether its on or off. when testing with Sony Vegas it seems thati have the same problem, it barely picks anything up
