I'm not a professional audio person, but these are beefy and attractive and look they would put up with abuse if they needed too. No complaints for a great price. Ordered extra lengths with no regrets.
I received a total of eight mic cables. They arrived quickly and the quality appears fine. No problems with connecting them to the board, digital recorder, mics or each other. Every thing fits. Very competative price. The only reason I did not give a five star rating is because I received no written warranty or guarantee.
Until this review request popped up in my email, I’d completely forgotten that I neglected to return these after they arrived. My sound partner and I, uh... got our wires crossed, and we both ordered a set of the same cables when they were on sale. (And THEY ARE GREAT.) Guess it’s time to dig out the box and check out Monoprice’s return policy. Oops!
The cables carried the load and performed flawlessly. The addition of the cables added to a faster and more efficient set up and probably even more importantly as every musician knows, break down and load process.
Bought this because I had a few 15-20 foot XLRs, and they are nearly never adequate. I use this at church for my wife's mic when we do the children's worship, and I even saved the day this past weekend when I got back with the ol' band for a gig and there was a doubled up XLR with a connection problem.
This is a solid, quality cable and so far it works perfectly and feels good.
The prices are great, and if you want a thick cable, these are just the ticket. I haven't taken one apart yet to verify if the wire gauge is as advertised, but I'll do so, just to satisfy my curiosity... They work great and sound just fine, at least at first. Of course, the real test of a cable is longevity, so we shall see... So far, so good.
