You could remove the back case (it just unscrews, then you would normally screw it back) and solder directly to the plug, wrapping tightly and/or using heat-shrink tubing to provide protection and strain relief. You _might_ be able to ream out the back to accommodate an 8 mm wire, but that's fairly large for such a small plug.


Virtually all long microphone runs use balanced cable with XLR connectors, or at the very least 1/4" TRS (stereo phone) plugs. You could use one of those and then an XLR or TRS to 1/8" adapter at the end.

ok thanks, does the link MandM provided look correct? Then I will use an adapter to get it to 3.5mm. Thanks!

Yes, 1/4" TRS to 3.5mm adapter. Don't even think about trying to solder standard mic cable to a 3.5 mm plug!

Yes, the link looks correct.


And, what Wayne said ( a bit more forcefully than did I).
