I bought the UMIK-2 and I need a longer cable. The supplied 2 meter cable is just too short. I tried using a USB 3 extension cable but that didn't work. What cable can I buy to make sure that the UMIK-2 will work?

You need to use a USB 2.0 extension cable, NOT 3.0. Monoprice # 105433 6 foot USB extension cable works, I just tried it with a UMIK-2. $5.99 from Amazon. I'm sure they have other lengths, but the main point is - USB 2.0.

Hi,

If you want to use an extension cable with our microphones (either UMIK-1 or 2), please make sure you are using an ACTIVE USB extension cable instead of a normal one. Normal extenders will not have enough power for the UMIKs. Both USB 2.0 & 3.0 extenders should work as long as they are active extenders. You can try to look for extenders similar to this: www.amazon.com/dp/B0179MXKU8?pd_rd_i=B01...b8-ad3f-b8792de33bc1
