    10ft Premier Series XLR Male to XLR Female 16AWG Cable (Gold Plated) [Microphone & Interconnect]

    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.

     

    Our XLR male to female cables continue our tradition of bringing the highest quality cables at the best prices.  These cables feature thick, heavy gauge wires, gold plated connectors and sturdy connector housings.

     
    • 16AWG Stranded Copper Wire Conduits.
    • 97.5% Shielded Balanced Connections
    • Gold Plated Connectors
    • Metallic Graphite Colored Connector Housings
    • Molded Strain Relief Boots.

    Solid XLR Cable. Jacks feel solid and are made of all metal. They fit a bit tight into the XLR/1.4" combo jacks on my recording interface, but I haven't had any real trouble getting them plugged and unplugged. I haven't had any issues with signal noise. Used with a Presonus AudioBox USB, a Shure SM58, and a Crate PowerBlock.

    Don't go anywhere else
    These cables go head to head with ones costing way more. Don't pay $$$ for a fancy brandthese are all you need.

    Shielding not as good
    Cable looks good. Unfortunately there is radio noise that gets through the shielding.

    PROS: Cable looks like good quality and is made of good gauge cable.

    CONS: There seems to be some radio noise that gets through the Shielding

    I found the cables that I ordered very easy to work with and very pliable. They laid flat once I got them reconditioned. The connections felt solid and appeared in great condition. I decided to test all the cables with a professional cable tester and found that all cables were wired incorrectly based upon Pro Audio standards. All cables were wired in phase but the shield pin (1) was jumpered across to the connector case lug (sometimes referred to as pin 4). According to some, this practice can cause ground loops between pieces of gear or induce noise into the system. Not a big deal to fix but it did take close to 2 hours to fix all 42 connections.

    PROS: Price, pliable cable, solid feeling connectors

    CONS: Wired incorrectly based upon accepted pro audio standards

    Unacceptable design and construction
    I own at least 10 of these cables in various lengths so I’m posting this under multiple lengths.



    For some unknown reason I was messing with a multi-meter and one of these cables. I found that the shell of the connector was connected to, that is had essentially zero resistance, to the ground prong on the XLR connector. I really didn't know if this was a good idea so I measured several other of the same model cables. I found that some had the connection and some didn't. I opened the end connector of several cables and found that some of the cables has a small wired soldiered from a lug which connects to the shell to the ground lug and some didn't.



    I got online and referenced what I think was an AES standard on this type of cable. My reading was that the standard is vague on the connection. In more reading online, all of the opinions on the subject that I found, said that the connection was a bad idea. Having the cable shell connected to ground provides an opportunity for signals to be introduced in to the ground if there a say connections between two cables and the cables are on the floor and are crossed by another cable. It could also cause problems even for cables connected to equipment depending on what comes in contact with the cable shell. It seems to me that having a connection between the cable ground and the shell isn't a good idea. Whether it is a good idea or not it seems that the connection should either be made in 100% or 0% of the cables. I have at least ten cables of varying lengths and a quick set of measurements shows that the connection is present in about 50% of them. This seems to show a lack of control in the production process.



    Based on the above I decided to further investigate the construction of the cables. I cut one into two pieces (they are low cost) and stripped back the outer cover. As specified the cable has a mesh shield around the two conductors. The cable does not have filler around the two conductors which in my opinion is unacceptable. It is important to maintain the twist in the signal wires and maintain the geometry of the shield. In my opinion, twisting the cable, or putting pressure on the outside of the cables will distort the shield and make it less effective. It will also potentially affect the conductor geometry. This just doesn't seem to be the way to make the cables. Use of these cables in a stage environment where they might get rough handling would seem to be particularly problematic. Datasheets on for example Belden balanced cables shows a filler and do other datasheets I found. I ordered some cables from another source a long with a one foot piece of the cable. Examining that cable I found filler.



    Given that the filler likely costs almost nothing being a paper sort of material, it really seems unacceptable in my opinion that any cables don't have it no matter how low their cost.



    I've found other balanced cables for about the same cost that don't have these problems and I'm using them now. I have a small pile of what I consider useless cables.



    CONS: Lacks filler to maintain correct geometry of conductors and shield.

    Shell connected to shield on random cables.

    unusable terrible cables
    I first plugged the cable in and as you move the cable, it crackles. Next test - I tapped the cable with my finger with result that my 'taps' were amplified through my head & cabinet. Next test - I plugged it into my system to use it - as long as the cables aren't used where there is any noise or movement, or you don't use the cables to connect a working system, they are great. Playing through them with audio on causes feedback, crackling and more microphonics.

    PROS: cheap and they work well if you want to use them to tie things up - just don't use them as audio cables

    CONS: cables are completely unusable they are horribly microphonic.

    Improving RF interferance
    Monoprice does a great job providing amazing products at amazing prices. The cables were great and did what I needed. The xlr snake from our soundboard to the stage is old and gets RF interference so we pickup a radio station during church. Since installing these we don't get that anymore.

    PROS: great quality
    great sheathing
    gold plated
    longer than needed

    CONS: I didn't order enough

    Exactly what I wanted at the best price I could find
    I can find items through Amazon resellers for less than a dollar each but they usually end up failing in a few months. Cheap crap. The cables and connectors I have purchased from Monoprice are always solid quality and the price is more than reasonable. I will shop here again for more stuff.

    PROS: well constructed, sturdy, clean sounding, noise free, excellent price

    CONS: Not brand I know
