Re: [Nature Recordists] extension cables

Slightly O/T but related..

I've recently brought some hydrophones and tested them out a few days ago. Very 
happy with the quality of the underwater recordings BUT have noticed they seem 
to be microphonic, as in pick up audio from above the water at a very low level 
but just audible. 

Approx 10m cable, unbalanced jack to XLR input plug, into my SQN mixer.

Is the simple solution to shorten the unbalanced cable? (But I still want some 
length on the cable though) 
Sorry if it seems like a dumb question but I only ever use professional 
"balanced" equipment and have never come across this issue before...
