Yes, a mic rewired for 8-pin will work fine with your Omni VII. As for the
4-pin to 8-pin adapters and 8-pim to 4-pin adapters that you see on the auction
site, they would be useful if you had two transcievers, each of which had a
different connector and you wanted to use the same mic with both, then you
could mount the adapter on the transciever with the connector that was
different than the mic connector
