    3.5mm to xlr adaptor - does it make it balanced?

    Hi. If I have a 3.5mm mic (Shure VP83) and an external recorder with xlr - if I use an adaptor, does the signal benefit? Ie, does the unbalanced 3.5 signal become balanced over teh xlr cable? Or is it just passively letting me connect from one size connector to another? Thanks

    Are the Shure SE215 any good for daily "throw in my pocket" ear buds?

    I'm looking for a pair of ear buds for around a hundred bucks. Finally found these shure SE215. The only think I really need them to do is playing music and be able to be thrown in my pocket several times a day and hold up better then my sennheiser which recently went bust.
