    3ft 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.

    How good can a cheap cable be?
    Bought 16pcs 3ft Premier Series XLR Male to XLR Female 16AWG Cable (Gold Plated).
    I must say i had my doubts when a friend advised me to buy from MP.
    He has experience in hifi for over 40 years and for over 20 years.
    I have two pair of XLR that i used before for stereo music listening with my Krell FPB600 and Perreaux Preamp and Perraux CD.
    One of the pairs is 3ft Wireworld Starlight Gold that cost $2000 here in Sweden.
    The other pair is a rare silver cable, custom made 3ft and cost $3500/pair.

    Tell you what.. I can NOT hear any difference between the Wireworld Cable. Its amazing, just amazing.
    Ive told all i know where to buy cables from now on :)

    Works fantastic on my 2 setups of Sunfire XT series and Onkyo PR-SC5509 prepro.

    PROS: Read the review.

    CONS: None what so ever!

    MonopriceTHE PLACE TO BUY- No illogic here
    I have purchased from Monoprice for the past 3 years. Yes, I'm an audiophile, BUT I have an electrical engineering, then medical school background. Please, if you can't stomach paying less than $200-thousands, go elsewhere and waste your money. Cables, well made, good copper and connectors have few to no differences, so that is my science and direct subjective and well planned with audiophile friends- YES THE DREADED BLIND TEST!!!! The HDMI, Glass and RCA cables- digital and anolog, most recently balanced cables (wife A-B's for me blind recently PS Audio balance pair to the Balanced cables I bought for my new PrePro (Sunfire's top of the line for home theater exclusively, rest is Bel Canto, CJ, VTL Pre for Stereo, Music Vault (from audiogon) music server and Meridian CD) - so I DO BELIEVE IN WELL BUILT, DESIGNED ELECTRONICS, BUT A THOUSAND DOLLER AC OR RCA- just foolish). So bottom line, save your money up for a good Music Vault or other music server, or just buy music. BUY YOUR CABLES HERE - I GET THEIR PREMIUM WIRES AND HAVE NEVER BEEN LET DOWN. Have your partner A-B a Good Brand/ your most expensive wire to the Monoprice and see if you really can hear a difference. Your call, your cash. Enjoy the Music.

    PROS: I never give 10's. So the very best 9/10 - not just for the price, but real, practical and well build wires and cables.

    CONS: I know of no cons, a great company, backs their products.

    Great Value - Great Cables
    I use these in my Home Theater. I replaced all of my Hosa with these cables from MP. Great quality, nice flexibility and solid connectors.

    Monoprice has excellent quality cables for very reasonable prices and very fast shipping. I seldom buy my cables from Guitar Center any more.

    My Audiocontrol Maestro Pre-Pro/ Amp set-up not only sounds great but now looks the part too!
    Cannot find a better value than these anywhere!

    High Quality, great price
    Very pleased with these cables. Solid quality gold plated connectors have a nice tight fit. I have purchased other cables from this site and have always been very satisfied with the quality. Thanks!

    PROS: Great cable quality, awesome connectors.

    CONS: None

    Great budget mic cable, so much better than what you'd find in a music store for the same price. The connector design is unusual but seems solid, it has adequate strain relief for the cable exit, which is the most likely place for a mic cable to fail, by getting yanked and the wires breaking off at the solder joint. Another plus of the connectors is that they can be taken apart so the cable could be modified or repaired. One use for these 3 footers, which I bought 2 for, is to make a phase inverting cable, with the simple modification of swapping the hot and cold (pins 2 and 3) on one end.
    The heavy gauge (16awg) wire is formidable, which could be a plus or possibly a minus, as the robustness that would be great for handling abuse, may make it unwieldy patching together a dense rack or where the weight of the cable hanging might pull something lightweight and smooth off a table, which I could see happening more with the 6ft cable (the 3 ft having less hanging weight).
    These cables are great though. I have wired up a home studio with these and the TRS cables with no reliability or noise issues. I couldn't see why it would be necessary to get anything fancier.

    PROS: Reliable, heavy duty, good strain relief, unusual connectors make it easy to spot with other people's cables.

    CONS: Supreme heaviness of cable could be an issue for some applications

    Excellent, but check
    I've purchased these XLRs over the years for secure, reliable performance. Only two incidents of shortcomings. One had a loose screw in the bag but easily threaded back in- no problem. Second time the screw at the latch lever was broken and wouldn't tighten. Kudos to Monoprice for quickly sending a replacement. This is a thumbs up for the product, but more importantly, the company.

    PROS: Well constructed, good flexibility, great pricing.

    CONS: But check the screws
