beachtek DXA-MICRO PRO Audio Adapter Review: Better Sound for Your Camera

If you don’t have time to record your sound separate from your camera, the beachtek DXA-Micro Pro is a new audio adapter which allows you to record your lavalier and XLR based microphones into your camera with much better sound quality. In this episode we have a look at the features of the DXA-MICRO Pro audio adapter.

Many of you know I'm not usually a fan of recording dialogue sound to non-pro video cameras. But if you have to turn around a project quickly, the DXA-MICRO PRO does a nice job of adapting your professional microphones for use with a DSLR or mirrorless camera with a 3.5mm microphone input.

In my testing I used two RODELink wireless kits and also recorded with the good old RODE NTG2 shotgun microphone. Good results with both and the 3.5mm microphone inputs are especially impressive.

You get 1 XLR input and 3 3.5mm inputs and you can record any two of them simultaneously. I also really like that you can record the two as a stereo mix or send each mic do a different channel so that you can edit individual mic channels separately in post.

Lots of goodness in this little sound tool.
