      It Works well, But my only disappointment is the combined jack and XLR socket. You virtually have to force It in to connect either one you are using and removing is just as bad, I’m sure something will break unless it wears in. It’s nice that it’s a solid connection when inserted but it shouldn’t be like that, the headphone socket is the same. So 10 out of 10 for its main purpose, but 3 out of 10 for ease of use.
