Good quality at a fair price
Joey.O, 15.04.2019
I bought this mic cable to use in my home studio. It's been used throughly since purchased. It has been used it with a variety of different mics and no noise issues have been been noticed whatsoever.

The only negative I can really say about this mic cable is in the cable thickness. In comparison to other mic cables it tends to be a bit more fragile. However for this price you don't mind the lack of cable thickness. It can be easily wrapped and stored away. The connectors are also easy to repair if ever they become broken.

Overall a very decent mic cable for an extremely affordable price.

If you are reading reviews, the chances are you are trying to get the best value for your money. Well you found it when it comes to mic cables.

The quality of these cables is not just good for the price, its perfect quality for a mic cable of any price.

The cable is soft rubber and flexible allowing excess cable to be coiled and tidied away on stage set ups.

The connectors are solid and fit perfect to the cable. Inside the soldering is better that I have seen in all my other cables. Note - in one review someone mentioned it was worth while getting these cables and chopping the ends off. I believe that the connectors have been upgraded since then as there are no screws to accidentally fall out and these are high quality connectors.

I have about 50 varying lengths of these cables and unless they put the price point up, will not get a cable from anywhere else again.

I can only foresee issues if heavy equipment is dropped on these cables or they are abused by other inappropriate means.

Microphone cables
25.09.2016
I bought this cable to compliment my first ever microphone

The cables work really well, they are sturdy cables and no issues with them at all and plenty of length.

It is always worth buying good cables, these certainly are worth the money.

A couple of notes to people breaking into music or first time buyers

Note 1: There are many different cable types (XLR (3pin and 5pin are most common), RCA and TLS cables be sure to buy the correct cables for your instrument/mic and audio interface. Take note that XLR cables and connectors could be 3 or 5 pin which can cause issues, if you get wrong one.

Note 2: longer cables can often be exposed to more interference try to buy a cable of reasonable length but not too short to cause issues.

Note 3: if you are spending big sums on good instruments, don't go cheap on the cables.

One of a kind
WKvc, 30.03.2019
Having these cables used in the past in small live setups and during the studio sessions, I've just bought another 4 of them.

These cables are my go-to when it comes to connecting mics on stage. Although the price is extraordinarily low, the quality is fantastic and they last for years. However, one downside for me is its lack of thickness (compared to similar cables produced by Fender), which makes it look and feel more fragile than it actually is. On the other hand, thin isolation layer makes it super easy to make repairs in case of accidental break inside the cable, if it ever happens. As I said, these little guys are strong and durable.

Bought many of them, definitely will buy more.

No complaints
NeilR, 04.08.2017
Nothing is amiss with this cable, I can honestly say that I have absolutely no complaints in regards to sturdiness or quality. I use these when I am DJing as well as in my home studio and they've already had plenty of things fall on them as well as people step on them among other things. Despite all o this, there are still no real signs of wear or any kind of damage to them. They spool easily to be tucked away in a bag or carry case too which is quite useful for storage purposes. The connectors are solid and fit perfect to the cable. Inside the soldering is better that I have seen in any of my other cables in my studio.
Note - in one review someone mentioned it was worth while getting these cables and chopping the ends off. I believe that the connectors have been upgraded since then as there are no screws to accidentally fall out and these are high quality connectors. In terms of value for money, this is the perfect cable for any musician as they really are perfect for any studio or instrument set up. I can't recommend this any more.

Solid option
johnm64, 08.03.2019
I can't really say much other than it works well without any noise in the audio and feels like a solidly built cable. That's all you can ask.

Well worth the cheap price, it has a long enough lead for most purposes.

It's a low-cost cable. Works well enough.
R-Bo, 25.06.2019
I only use it for practice. For gigging and recording, I wouldn't expect to rely on something in this price range. But having said that, there haven't been any issues whatsoever with the cable. No noise or crackling. For a budget priced cable, it's perfectly adequate.

the sssnake SM6BK review
SimoSacco, 19.04.2019
For the price, probably the best XLR cables i've ever had.
I bought them to be used live, so in case one breaks down it's not a huge loss, but I ended up using them in the studio as well alongside cables that cost almost 3 times it.

Would buy again
19.02.2017
This cable was cheap but the price does not reflect the quality of the cable,

I have had it for a few months now, working with it every weekend and have never had an issue,

The cable has been put threw some hard times, I have it out with the rental gear and i have had to come back to me in so many different ways, the end did break off when one idiot decided it was a good idea to swing the microphone that it was connected it in the air around his head, but a bit of work and the original connector was back on and is still working to this day, I have sense ordered more and this will be my go-to microphone cable for now on,

The bands around me have also ordered these cables sense I recommended it and they are also very happy with the quality

Excellent budget cable for home/studio use
albertotp, 12.01.2019
I bought this cable to connect a microphone into an audio interface for home recording and it fulfills the purpose in all aspects at an excellent price point. It does not feel like the cable and connectors are super sturdy and durable, but for light use at home it seems like it's going to last forever. I did not have any problems in terms of sound, weird noises, bad connection, etc... The 6m length is more than enough for my bedroom and a good length for the rehearsal room. I definitely recommend this product.

Brilliant and cheap
Lee P., 28.05.2015
I bought these on a whim as part of a bigger order. I didn't expect them to be particularly good, but thought they might make okay spare cables to keep in my kitbag.

I was wrong, these are great. The keyboard player in my band asked me why I didn't order more! At this price I could of bought a dozen or so and renewed some of our older cables.

The installation is of a good quality as are the connectors. Testing the cables none of them on microphone egg or noisy in any way. While they might not be the top of the range cables they are certainly suitable for most applications in a live environment. When I next place a Thomann I'll add another few of these as I can't argue with the price or the quality.

Great Cable, Buy Some.
Gavin S., 02.02.2016
These Thomann brand cables are excellent and I wouldn't dream of spending any more on expensive cables especially for live use which is the primary reason I need xlr's, you might notice some noise in a studio setting but i doubt it. Connections on both ends of these cables are sturdy and are holding up well after lots of gigs. I pretty much always pick up a couple of these whenever I order something off Thomann as they are so cheap without being off inferior quality. Highly recommend this product to anyone and fact that the cable is not bulky is a plus as they look neater on stage.
