3.5mm jack doesn't jive with xlr-based audio interfaces. We need an XLR option on this thing.

Yeah, @fledonne, that looks like it should work fine, aber mein Deutsch ist zu schlecht.
@Nat not sure where that comment went (or where yours is, for that matter)... We had an engineering snafu with the prior build and diverted resources into the MM5.
Today i found and ordered this device https://www.thomann.de/de/the_tbone_ppa_200.htm
This one converts the 48V Phantom Power down to 5V
I hope to get it to work with it! At least one step closer ;-)
I agree. It was sad to find out adapters wont work since the microphone will not receive power. It's designed to receive 5V in the ring, but audio interfaces do not seem to send power there. Would be nice to at least include an adapter that comes with a preamp and an XLR or 1/4 TRS output if you don't wish to make a separate version of the microphone.
Jimmy, can you give us any info on how this is planned?
It'd be nice not not have any extra electronics in between the mic and the soundcard as that could degrade the quality of the mic.
Alas, an adapter won't even work.
These are electret microphones. It baffles the mind how a product marketed to people with audiophile grade headphones is totally incompatible with audiophile grade hardware.
Make this a dynamic microphone, or a condenser compatible with 48V phantom power.
If you DO want to use an adapter, you'll have to shove a 5V electret mic preamp in the middle of the female connector and the XLR connector.
