    Although I am giving this product 1 star, it should work fine for audio applications. The cable seems nicely made. Why the 1 star? Well, I am an engineer and in my business “specifications” are everything. If a supplier lies to you about one thing, you totally lose confidence in everything they say. In my hobby, I use XLR cables to distribute DC power for one box to another – I generally build my own cables because I need wires larger than 22 AWG, which seems standard for audio cables. Except the Cable Matters, which proudly proclaim they use 16 AWG in these XLR cables. (BTW, wire gage indicates the size of the copper part of the wire and SMALLER numbers mean BIGGER wire). So 16 AWG is a LOT bigger than 22 AWG. When I got the cables (3 ft), I disassembled one end and compared the internal wires to a piece of 22 AWG wire. Really similar in size. Next, I compared it to a piece of 16 AWG, which was much bigger. It appears this is a standard audio cable using the normal wire size – which makes sense, since a larger wire would make no difference to a microphone, and would simply add weight and bulk. Unfortunately, that is not what they advertised and not what I wanted. In conclusion, I gave the item 1 star because I dislike fake specs – it the wire size is grossly inaccurate, what else did they get wrong?Read more

    I did a head-to-head between this XLR cord (2 for $20), a very high end cord (Mogami gold) and a couple random XLR cords I’ve collected, all around $20 each. If you don’t know, Mogami is supposed to be about the best you can get for mass produced cords. Lots of insulation, good components and build. I say this not because I’m trying to push anyone toward it, just using it as a $50-65 comparison. I compared them using two rather high end mics going through the same PreSonus Audiobox into Reaper for my DAW. I made all comparisons with both mics and used Low (9:00 on the channel’s gain knob), Medium (12:00) and HighGain (3:00). Here’s the short version of the results: I couldn’t find any significant difference between this particular “cheap” cord and Mogami. The other cheapos introduced a lot of noise. Maybe bc they were older, maybe because cheap cords bring in some noise, a lot at high gain. But this one didn’t. It’s thick so seems to be well insulated. In fact, it looks quite a bit like the Mogami insofar as the size and components. This cord worked great, and for 1/4 the cost, I think the only thing that it’s missing is a lifetime, no-questions warranty. I suspect if you’re using it in a studio or in some way not plugging, unplugging, coiling, uncoiling, slapping them into piles and traveling around with it, it’s going to be great. I was pleasantly surprised and this will be my go-to cord (at least until I find something better). I couldn’t believe how it compared to the high-end/expensive brand.Read more

    TL;DR: These cables are extremely nice quality and are free of interference and defects for a fairly low price. I ordered these because the last few cables I bought from CableMatters were pretty good quality and arrived very quickly. These were also the right length and price for what I was looking for, except I was going to end up with *2* cables for the price I was expecting to pay for a single cable. They came in a padded Amazon envelope and inside a single plastic bag within this envelope; the bag also had a large label on it saying it should contain 2 cables and warning the distributor that they are to stay packaged together in a pair. I guess they’ve had issues with separation, kind of made me laugh a tiny bit because this warning label is so prominent. I disassembled the connector on the female end just enough to check the assembly and material quality, since I just assembled one of these recently and I knew it would be easy to take apart and put back together. I wanted to make sure I got what CableMatters claims to sell, and I’m happy to say it looks like it’s all exactly what they said it is on their site. WIRE/CABLE: Anyway, these cables are very thickly insulated with copper braid shielding. Supposedly there’s foil in their under the copper braiding, but I couldn’t see it in there and I don’t want to damage anything digging for it. (Braided shielding is more effective, more expensive, and usually provides lower resistance path to ground than foil, but adding a layer of foil provides complete coverage against interference.) Inside of the shielding, there are two conductors (separately insulated wires–hot and ground) that are very thin gauge. I’m not sure what gauge, but I’m guessing it’s like 24 or 26 AWG. The jacket of the cable (outermost layer) is soft, thick, and should be made of PVC but I don’t know how to tell what the material actually is. Scratching it with my nail doesn’t seem to hurt it. Text is printed at regular intervals on it in a very clear font; it contains their logo and reads, “Cable Matters (THEIR WEBSITE URL)HIGH QUALITY MICROPHONE CABLE” and does not otherwise describe the ratings or properties of the cable; I would have liked to know the ratings and maybe who manufactures the cable material (I don’t think CM makes the wire in-house, I think they just modify and assemble it), but that’s me. CONNECTORS: You can disassemble these connectors by gently unscrewing the black plastic strain relief cones from the metal connector housings. The connectors seem to be some Neutrik XLR gold-plated connectors, which have been repainted in semi-gloss black, do not have the stamped NEUTRIK labels on the strain relief or housing, and have a silkscreened small CableMatters logo opposite of the latching mechanism. I’m not sure which model line (eg XX, EMC) the connectors are, and I can’t be completely sure if they are actually NEUTRIK or just look the same. The springy plastic ring around the strain relief can probably be swapped for Neutrik’s XXR-n (swap n for numbers 0 through 9) color coding rings. These are currently $0.25 or so each if you order them from electrical supply companies, such as Mouser or Allied, but if you really want them from an Amazon vendor, I saw a listing selling them for $6 *each* with an additional ~$7 in shipping, or another listing that sells them for about $8 shipped. 🙂 The paint looks like the polyester powdercoating that I’ve seen on Hoffman industrial enclosures at work, except thinner, so I believe it’s the same stuff. It’s not a very tough paint, in my experience; it will probably scuff somewhat easily if you drag or hit it against metal, but I also think that since it’s thin, it probably is at least not going to have poor adhesion or just flake off, and it shouldn’t get damaged by fingernails, wood, or plastic. The wires and shielding are soldered to the connector pins and tab; the solder is shiny, I was not able to pry off any connections with my fingernail (I’d rather know if they are cold-soldered sooner rather than in the middle of a gaming session), and the insulation of the wires and connector isolator material are not deformed or melted. These cables are probably assembled by hand and the workmanship is absolutely fantastic. SOUND QUALITY: Using the direct monitor setting, even with my pre-amp’s mic gain setting turned all the way to +60 dB, the sound through this cable is crystal-clear and no detectable hiss. I can clearly hear sparrows chirping and wind blowing through my open window with how high I have the gain set; when I swap to my old cobbled-together coax abomination cable, there is a lot of popping, there is a low hum, and everything going through my mic sounds horribly distorted. I wish I had a “real” XLR cable that I could compare it to. NOTE: My pre-amp has noise filtering, so it’s possible that some interference may still be getting picked up in this cable and the amp is managing to filter it all out enough that I can’t detect it at full gain. The pre-amp definitely doesn’t filter much noise from my other cable, though, so I think this cable from CM blocks interference extremely well.Read more

    Used these for a shure sm7b microphone setup. It was based on a recommendation from a YouTube video and the quality looked good. Very impressed with the cable quality when it arrived and happy with my choice.Read more

    No need to look elsewhere for more expensive brands offering “audiophile” cables. High quality cables with excellent construction. Very thick as expected from professional XLR cables. The metal and rubber ends construction for the connector is impressive. It can definitely take a beating should you decide to connect and disconnect if on the go. No issues connecting. Love that it’s sold in pairs than singles and at a nice price point. Will be buying more from this vendor as a result of this experience.Read more

    He recibido los cables y todo está en orden ,menos la medida de los cables ,ya que en la explicación de la presentación del producto ,pone que son cables de 1,80 y son cada cable de 0,90.Me ha decepcionado ya que lo examiné para que fueran de 1,80.Por el precio los voy a guardar pese a que no me sirven para lo que yo quería y me es mas costoso el procedimiento de la devolución que quedármelos. Ruego corrijan y sean mas precisos a la hora de presentar el producto dé acuerdo a las especificaciones Aprovecho la ocasión para saludarles atentamente.Read more

    You don’t always have to spend major money to get quality and this is one of those examples. Does exactly what it should. I should mention that I am one of those who does not believe that cables make a huge difference. Sure if you buy cheap (ie: poor quality) then you will have a degraded experience but even standard cables will result in the same performance as cables costing over $100. I’ve come to this determination after having personally measured frequency response and effect on distortion from good quality, less expensive cables compared to more premium options and…there was ZERO difference.Read more
