20ft 4-Channel XLR Male to XLR Female Snake Cable

Get 4-channel, professional, balanced audio XLR cable snakes from Monoprice for less than you're used to paying for each XLR cable alone!

These XLR cable snakes feature four sets of male-to-female XLR cables assembled into a single, soft and durable, cable jacket. Each XLR connector has a silver metal housing and is connected with a color coded wire, so you can quickly and easily make the right connections the first time, every time.

The cables are colored red, blue, white, and yellow. The connector housings are metal with plastic and rubber cable boots to reduce strain on the physical connection. Each cable carries a lifetime guarantee, so you can trust you'll always have a properly working cable, when you buy them from Monoprice!

There is currently an error on the packaging showing this to be an STP-XLR cable, while clearly the cable is an XLR-XLR type. Note that the packaging is incorrect and is in the process of being corrected.

Solid product - superb price

Pros: Fantastic overall value.

Cons: Missing a large harness-style (wire) strain relief, and the rubber strain-relief on each individual cable is only so-so, so extra care should be taken in this regard. Considering the low-cost, this is a minor issue. 20' length is just barely useable, from a practical standpoint (recommend adding 15' and 30' versions, as well as higher gauge wire version (ie: 16). Folks will understand the additional cost, and welcome the alternatives).

I carefully examined and tested every connector for intermittent, short, or open connections, and for general solder joint quality - no issues were encountered. I tested again, once in-wall installation was complete (of three snakes, run alongside one another) - still no issues. Test recording (soloing each channel, one at a time) confirmed good. Thumbs up!

Correction: Suggest adding 25' and 30' versions (not 15' - whoops!).

Cheap Cable - For a Reason

Pros: Great way to cleanly run cable over short distances.

Cons: Cables are too short to be really useful. Would be nice if there were longer versions of it.
Bad solder joints.
Strain relief inside connectors does absolutely nothing.

I was really happy with these cables until a concert recording last night. I had used them in previous recordings and had no problems. Last night I wasn't getting signal from one of my microphones and narrowed it down to a bad channel in one of these snakes. I used a cable tester to confirm and took apart the bad connector.

One of the wires had completely disconnected itself from its contact. The soldering inside the connectors is really low quality and the strain relief isn't designed for the thinner cables (it doesn't grab the cable at all), so when any strain is put on them it goes directly to the bad solder joints. I ended up taking everything apart and there were many joints that looked like they would break under any pressure.

I cut, stripped, and soldered all of the connectors so they will hold better and put tape around the wire to add bulk and give the strain relief something to grab on to. I did this to the two of these that I own because they were both poorly made. Hopefully they will hold up in the future.

These are useful cables and are hard to beat for the price, but make sure you always have a backup if you're planning on using them for anything important. If you have a soldering iron and some time it is probably worth modifying the cables to ensure they won't break.

Hello Matt,

Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the issues experienced with PID 8767. I will forward this information to be taken into consideration by our product team. We appreciate your feedback! I also wanted to note that we do offer a lifetime warranty for our cables. However, cutting or making any modifications to the cable does void the warranty.

Wish they had a longer version

Pros: Flexible, reliable, good quality

This snake works great, I've used it both for practices and live work without any issues. I only wish Monoprice did a longer version, 30' or even 50'

Pros: Good Quality and affordable! Shipping was fast

Cons: The wires into the connectors look easy to pull out if not careful. Wish there was some way to make them a little more snug, but for the price, I'm not complaining.

I've used small snakes to extend the reach of microphones - better than buying 4x 20 foot mic cables or purchasing longer cables. This is a great snake for a great price

Pros: Cable quality, low price.

Cons: None

You can't beat the price. Cable works great and is high quality. Using at our church to extend reach of several microphones.
