Question about power supply for wireless lavs

Ok, so I had bought a pair of Countryman B6's wired for Audio techinca's 1800 Wireless unit, and the lavs have a 4 pin hirose connector. I was looking for a power supply unit that could convert the lav to a regualr 3 pin xlr connection, just so I have the flexibility of either doing wired or wireless (I'm on a bit of a budget, so I'm trying to save money on buying wired and wireless lavs). I had found DC-78 power supply for the Sony brand of lavs, and before I order a pair, I just was wanted to make sure/verify that the DC-78 would work. It looks like the same connection, though I'm not too sure, and it never specifies it as 4 pin hirose.

Chris,
why not just call B&H and ask them. It does look right but one never can really tell from the picture.
