I don’t recommend the Antlion Mod Mic due to its terrible build quality. Mine failed in two different ways. First was only 1 month out of warranty where the wire twisted and torqued off in the jack. Antion only offered to sell me a refurb. After much frustration soldering on a new jack, the wire broke somewhere in the line a few months later.


If you made your own microphone I would totally get one!


@Logan what if i for exapmle have a hyper x headset where the mic and headphones run through the same jack. can i still plug this into the headphone jack in the AMP/DAC with ought getting a secondary mic? cheers


I think you can get a y splitter to separate the two.


Great to see Mayflower Electronics back, and innovating :smiley_cat:


I spy

  • Wurth polymer caps
  • AKM AK4117VF audio interface (24/192)
  • Gold plated 3.5mm jacks
  • Linear Technologies LT8471 (dual channel DC-DC converter)
  • Omron relay
  • What may be a MCU?
  • And a lot of flux residue


Mine finally arrived. I didn’t realize I was missing out using DT 880’s without an amp for that long.
