Using Karaoke Microphone on your iPhone!

I guess its no secret that I'm always relying on the mic on my earphones to sing on singing application. However, I recently discovered that we do have some spare microphone lying around that we hardly use.

So I did some research online and discovered that its possible to use them with my iPhone and sing with them! There are a few ways to do this, the more expensive way (by getting a cable that connect the mic straight to your phone) or cheaper way by using adapter.

It's obvious which way I chose, right?

Anyway, here is what you need:

1) Microphone and XLR Cable (obviously) - $0.
If you already have a microphone, you probably have these already.

 2) XLR to Mono 3.5mm TRS - $1.

I'm no expert with these audio jacks and their segments. However, I realised that only those with one line will work. 
3) An audio split that works with iPhone. - $2.

Note that the number of lines should be as the photo. (3 lines) And you should get one that work with iPhone!

The audio split will ha…

Pelson cute Charging Cables! Great as souvenirs and small gifts!

I've gotten these cute little "candies" as a souvenir from a friend. I really adore them! I mean they're really really cute and the packaging is just very colourful and eye catching. (They come in a few more colours than these, there is purple, green...etc) Although to be honest, the cable can be a little thinner, width wise, but oh well ... can't get best of both world.

I've been using the cable (pink one) for almost 2 weeks now and it prove to be very durable. I am guessing it's because of the not-so-thin cable that it can actually hold weight and stress quite well. I mean, I accidentally left my power bank hanging just by this cable for a few times (I admit, I have a problem remembering that I've a power bank attached. My doctor say there is no cure, so...) Anyway, the cable is still staying very strong.

The charging speed is good and charging is stable throughout. However, I do find the length might be a problem at times, like when I prefers my power bank to be on the table while I play game on my phone, and with the 20cm length, I obviously couldn't do that... (So actually, it's not totally my fault that the power bank is left hanging by the cable, right?)

Anyway, I really think these cute little cables are very good as souvenirs or for gift exchange if the budget is not high!

*They have a Android version too.
