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…

Side/Discuss: Because You don't have a proper job, that's why you're buying budget items!

Well, I know this blog is supposed to cover about budget/underdog items and brands... however, I've just hear rude comments from someone (not close) that I decided to discuss about it here.

I admit that I'm a little offended by the way the person put the message across.

It happened when I told her that I keep a blog that talks about budget items that I try and share it with my readers.

And she said in a tone that is both jokingly and despising, "Because You don't have a proper job, that's why you're buying budget items!"

Yes, I am not having a "proper job" (which is up to you to decide what is proper) but I am working at least! I've stable income, just that I don't hold a "full-time" job!

So basically, "Whatever!" I really don't bother explaining to her that I can well afford "branded" items but I just find them overprice and sometimes even overrated. And that some underdog brands produce great products too!

So oh well... ...


  1. It's really rude of that person. Budget or not, full time job or not, is a personal choice.
    I also buy budget items myself if they prove to be good. As long as you can provide for yourself, that's fine.

    Such people are narrow minded and should be ignored.
