Very good
Hugo Leite, 26.06.2019
It's my microphone cable and I am using it at home and in pubs where I play.
Tips, after more than one year of use, are still in perfect conditions. No signal of corrosion, strong springs and holes without any expansion.
Cable rubber is also like new, no cleaves or other signs of the usage.
As long as it's used with the proper care (please, do not use it to tie anyone to a chair or for pushing things...), for a 6,00 m lenght cable is a very good buying considering it's price.

The price for bulk buying is quite good. The cable itself is quite fragile and the XLR connectors do create a few problems from time to time, for example the xlr connector always opens up, but there is no cheaper and quicker way to get 40-50 cables (the minimum amount for a small to medium venue) to start a business with. Can be very durable if handled with care.

Perfect for price
Scott Zsalt, 29.08.2017
I currently have a rather expensive lead. I bought this one as a back up in case there are problems, assuming it would do in a tight spot.
Instead I find it is a surprisingly good cable, and I can't tell the difference once in use.
It's reasonably well made and fits both mic/instrument as well as PA/Input fine and snugly just as you would hope. Although it feels a bit thin, it doesn't seem to an issue and I got no interference even when using devices that might be expected to feedback into a cheap lead.

On the down side, it is still a cheap lead and probably wouldn't last long if being run over by clumsy roadies pushing huge wheeled crates over it. And the fittings, while seeming fine, aren't as flexible and durable as some more costly leads.
However, as i said, in use it seems fine and I would go as far as to say far better than I would expect for this price point.
Unless you really need to be gigging your cables or have some other reason for expensive cabling then I can't see why this wouldn't be absolutely perfect.
For home use I would definitely give this my recommendation.
As usual, Thomann delivered and packed the goods perfectly.

No problems, works well
Nyli, 18.02.2014
I bought this lead as i wanted to some some experimenting with my recordings, and needed a longer lead or two. I have been using the lead for a few months without issue. The first lead i was sent had some damge to it, Thomann replaced pretty quickly, for this perfect lead, and since then i have had no issues. Great balanced signal.

Nothing to complain about
Dimitris_T, 18.04.2017
This was the first cable i bought and still use it for more than 5-6 years.
It is a bit thin and the connectors don't feel that well made, but still gets the job done.
I am not 100% sure about differences in sound quality from more expensive microphones, but i feel more secure when using better cables.
But just get a couple of these ones, they will always find their way somewhere.

Good enough!
Baresak, 25.03.2019
High quality microphone cable for reasonable price. If you looking for endurance and high performance cable, look elsewhere. But if you looking for lowcost but well build cable - this is your choice.

Can't go wrong for this price
Malgan, 18.01.2016
Good, solid cable for the price.
I haven't broken one yet, so strength is ok and the signal quality is good as well.

The connectors are a bit more questionable as I've had some issues plugging them into my interface. They just barely fit and it takes some force to get them out again. I rarely have this issue with other cables unless they are clearly inferior production quality, so that could be a red flag for this cable as well.

Good microphone for the price that is
04.11.2015
I can say it was a good investment. A cable of these in studio will always be used, and the longer it lasts better, less spending we have in the studio. And this already ta me to last a long time, and this is very good, that you have a top quality. And besides, I notice that I have a better sound. Aconcelho to buy .. For this price, and with this product! There is no hesitation!

jansilh, 10.12.2018
Great value for that price! Cable is ok for bands, rehearsals rooms or static installations. XLR's are quite ok, but don't expect Neutrik quality for this price. Cable is really easy to organize (holds desired radius perfectly). No NEGs :)

Excellent
JamieM, 17.11.2015
These are great cables.

I use 4 or 5 for my main speakers at gigs and for micing up my drums. They are strong and flexible and the sound quality is very good.

They are a great option for anyone trying to cut costs a little and yet retain good quality equipment.

On the fence, but inclined to buy again
31.07.2015
I bought a fair few cables from this range in recent months. Of the eight tested so far, one has produced horrendous buzzing after minimal use. That said, seven have not and I am on the verge of ordering twelve more from the same range believing this to be an anomaly. The cables feel nice and operate well overall.

Had these for years now and they're just as good now as when I bought them, can't fault them at all.
Does exactly what you'd expect an XLR cable to do.

Amazing value
02.09.2015
I originally ordered these cables to try them out due to the low price and I was surprised with the quality for the price. they are great for use with microphones and I have also used several of them to do a long cable run from mixer to amp with no loss of quality.

Excellent quality great value
Free From Gravity, 21.08.2014
I seriously wish Thomann would open up a store near me in Portsmouth, UK. Every now and again I have a requirement for a cable and I have to go to the local music store and buy a Stagg cable for three times the price but they're just not the same.

I love Thomann cables, they're long lasting, durable and I seldom get problems with them.I gig around 2-3 times a week, and have used pretty much the same cables for the mixing desk and amp for 5 years now - never had an issue with them. As Mic cables they are excellent, no crackles, no noise, just clean old sound.

I've been using these cables for the best part of 11 years now and when I do a large order with Thomann I always include a half a dozen of these cables - to cover me for when I do need one. Its not that they keep dying on me - people keep nicking them, probably because they look good, they are strong, and look a quality product. For this sort of price it would be rude not to.

Excellent quality, excellent value and great price - highly recommended for any use

Cheap and does the job
27.09.2016
I ordered a number of these cables to connect instruments in a PA system.

The cable is very flexible and so even though easy to lay down, try and loop them up when storing them as they get tangled up easily if you have a large number of them. The connectors are made of relatively good quality and after a whole year of use they are still functioning well with no internal tearing.

However, please not that the screening of these cables is not optimal.

How flexible should a flex be?
Geof H., 27.05.2013
A mic flex should do what it says - flex. The cable on these is a bit on the stiff side. It's not too easy to coil these down - they lay the way they want and you can't argue with them about how they coil. They go into a 'figure eight' very easily no matter how hard you try and coil them down (and yes, I do know how to coil cables properly).
Having said that, you get what you pay for. They're no van damme cable but they work well and are pretty robust. Just don't expect them to all fit neatly into your crates.

As you would expect for the money
16.12.2014
I wouldn't choose to record with these, but I have used them for live use a few times now without issue. The connectors do feel a little cheap, but for the money you can't complain. I've had mine for 3 months and they are still holding up fine.

Does the job
Simon54, 10.11.2013
A budget cable but works well for what I use them for - I use two taped together to connect the left and right of my mixing desk to the poweramp. I'm guessing the cheaper components means a slight loss in sound quality, however for live use with a band this is not something I notice. Also the big advantage with being cheap is I can simply buy another when they fail (and they haven't failed for 6 years so far!).
