3ft Premier Series XLR Female to 1/4inch TRS Male 16AWG Cable (Gold Plated)

Monoprice’s line of Professional Audio cables brings you high performance cables at rock bottom prices.  Whether you’re connecting broadcast equipment, instruments for your band or your high end entertainment system, Monoprice has the interconnect cables for you.


Balanced audio cables utilize impedance balanced lines that reduce EM and RF noise and extend the effective range of the cable run.  Additionally, unlike standard unbalanced RCA interconnects that utilizes their braid as a signal return, balanced cables have a separate braided shield to provide additional resistance to interference without modulating the interference into the signal. This prevents ground loop issues.


XLR to 1/4" TRS balanced pro audio cables provide high fidelity and eliminate noise in the recording studio and on the stage. Our new Permier Series cables up the ante in terms of construction quality and performance.

Warning - may have reversed polarity

Pros: cost

Cons: specs do not mention which pin is hot. Reversed polarity according to AES standards

The wiring did not comply with AES standards. Pin 3 on the XLR was connected to the tip of the TRS phone plug. It should be pin 2. Besides mere phase reversals, this can cause problems, as in shorting to ground (no signal), when plugging into unbalanced gear with 1/4'' phone inputs, as I found out the hard way.. I had to open up the XLRs and swap the wires for pins 2 and 3 for eight of these cables. While the exterior looked rugged, the existing soldering looked tentative and the inner wire insulation melted too easily during re-soldering. Ironically, the 6 ft. TRS to male XLR cables that I also got from monoprice were wired correctly. Not Good, Monoprice.

Pros: Very sturdy

Works perfectly, try it with the dynamic microphone! I must advise that 3ft is probably way too short for most purposes, so don't be dumb like me and get yourself a 6ft cable

Great. Cheap. Hard to repair quickly. LIFETIME WARRANTY

Pros: Cheap
Good quality plugs
Think, strong, well insulated cables.

Cons: Insulation inside plug is difficult to cut through for any repair on-site.

If you find the cost to hard beat, buy extra cables for backup. Then, send the bad cables back for a100% no hassle replacement. I have been through RMAs with monoprice many times and they keep it simple.
