The SC19 is a 1.5m-long Lightning Accessory Cable (USB-C to Lightning) designed to connect MFi-certified USB-C microphones to iOS devices. SC20 – USB-C to USB-A for Wireless GO II (Not Available Separately)

A TRRS or Tip Ring Ring Sleeve plug has four conductors and is very popular with 3.5mm, and can be used with stereo unbalanced audio with video… or with stereo unbalanced audio plus a mono microphone conductor. The TRRS connector is extremely popular with smartphones and tablets, and to some degree with computers, including Chromebooks and Macs. Unfortunately, there are two conflicting standards associated with its use with stereo unbalanced audio plus a mono microphone conductor. USB-C – USB-C is a more versatile connection than USB-A in several ways. It allows for a faster data transfer rate, as well as a higher power link, meaning faster charging and the ability to run more power-hungry devices. USB-C connectors are also smaller than USB-A. They are increasingly utilised in computers and mobile devices, as well as microphones and other audio devices. You often require a slimmer connection to the headphone output on your recording device. The cable adapter accommodates headphones (which may or may not include a microphone, and maybe TRS or TRRS) with larger connectors and allows them to plug into the iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch, even through many cases.

Understanding Different Cable Connections The Movo MC3 adapter enables compatibility between smartphones and audio devices like microphones and headphones. The 3-pole TRRS connector plugs directly into your phone’s 3.5mm port, while the device you want to connect it to plugs into the adapter’s TRS port. I have a real old pc with seperate headphone out 3.5mm female and stereo line in. Works perfect in audacity, can monitor stereo line in, in headphones. A Telephone Exchange operator in Richardson, Texas, circa 1900. (Public domain photo. Thanks to Nathan Beach, the Richardson Public Library local history archives, and the Richardson Historical and Genealogical Society.) A TRRRS or Tip Ring Ring Ring Sleeve plug has five conductors. So far, I have seen it in a very few Sony products that allow for bidireccional stereo unbalanced. Some permitted and prohibited combinations

Since so many devices utilize 3.5mm diameter audio ports, the TRRS to TRS adapter is one of the most common connector cables you can find. Because of this, there are many different variants, each serving their own purpose. Trying to get your audio devices to work together can be a headache if you don’t know the difference between the connectors they use. Even then, there are so many different combinations of connection types.The SC9 is a TRRS to TRRS cable designed to connect a wide range of audio devices. At 1.5 metres long, it is particularly suitable for connecting a smartphone to the RØDECaster Pro. SC10 – 3.5mm TRRS to TRRS Cable

Even more surprising to me: by connecting the free male RCA connector to any of the two connected ones, I get a huge boost in power (though not in all frequencies). I realize this is just shorting out two channels, right? By connecting two at a time, I found out that the yellow and white connectors together get very noisy and weak signal. Now this is where I was surprised: using both red and yellow or red and white gives me a clear signal, although not as powerful as I get when connecting a computer's sound output to the same sound system (using s TRS-TRS setup). As you can see with the differentconnections listed above, it’s important to pay attention to what type of cable is required for your microphone and recording device. There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to plug in your mic and realising your cable is the wrong kind! My idea was to find out, by trial and error, which RCA connectors in the TRRS cable would take the left and right channels. I would then weld them to the RCA ends of the other cable and cut the remaining RCA connector off, which should carry either the mic or ground channel.The SC18 is a USB-C to USB-A cable. At1.5-metres long, it’s ideal for connecting USB-C devices such as the NT-USB Mini or RØDECaster Pro to devices with a USB-A input. SC19 – Lightning Accessory Cable (USB-C to Lightning) The SC15 is a Lightning Accessory Cable (USB-C to Lightning) designed to connect MFi-certified USB-C microphones to iOS devices. It is particularly suitable for connecting the VideoMic NTG to iPhones or iPads with a Lightning input. SC16 – USB-C to USB-C Cable (300mm) By connecting one channel at a time, I got two channels that would give a very faint signal, almost inaudible, and one that would give a weak signal to one of the stereo channels only. This was the red connector in the TRRS cable (it's red-white-yellow, with white in the middle). I recently got a Dell laptop with TRRS connector. I got a CTIA adapter with male TRRS that plugs into the Dell. On the other end there are 2 female 3.5mm connectors, labeled Earphone & Microphone. The earphones work fine in stereo. The stereo line in feed is converted to mono, merging both channels together. Actually, the cable adapter (shown above) that Shure is including with many new digital MOTIV devices solves two problems at once. Here I will paraphrase Shure’s explanation from the user manual:
