Re: UMIK-1 with long USB cable

I received the UMIK-1 today. The accompanying USB cable is 10 feet long !
I'll have a try adding a 10 feet long passive extension cable. If it does not work I'll order a 16 feet active extension.

The UMIK_1 connected with a 20 feet (6 m) USB cable works great ! No need for an active extension (I just added a passive 10 feet extension to the 10 feet cable provided with the mic).

Re: UMIK-1 with long USB cable

Your milage with USB extension cables will vary significantly, depends on length and quality of cables to requirements. I believe these usb mics only use USB per much slower 1.1 spec, which means it's not as critical for example as 1080p webcam.

Re: UMIK-1 with long USB cable

The extension cable I am using is a low cost one from Amazon. But your are right, the bandwidth requirements for a microphone are not very high, much lower than for a cam.
