Huge parasitic noise, might be because of bad luck
Ronfontu, 21.12.2020
I ordered one of these and one SM6RD (the same but in red). This one is unusable as it produces a high amount of parasitic noise, which is a big no. The red one is absolutely fine though so I may just have had bad luck. Thomann sent me a new one and once I get it, I'll update this review. For the time being, I ignore if I just recieved a bad specimen or if it translates poor build quality.

FYI, I am 100% the noise came from the cable because I did several tests, each one by changing an item (mic, preamp, sound interface input...) and the issue persisted everywhere the black cable was used and nowhere else.

I can't recommend it yet, but the other one I have is -until now- working perfectly well. I hope having a good quality cable is not a lottery because if so, I'd pass on it.

Your search ends here
Simoof, 07.09.2015
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.

Seems well-built, does what I need it to.
Cocaine Johnsson, 30.03.2021
I haven't had any problems with this cable thus far, it's very long and seems well-built, it'd be nice if it was a bit thicker, but I'm not going to dock a star for that -- it's fine, honestly. (I just prefer chunkier cables)

It's very pliable and has a high quality feel to it (as opposed to cheap feeling PVC cables)

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.

Great value for money
Andreas P, 20.10.2020
The Sssnake SM6BK is a great microphone cable. I bought it in combination with my Shure SM 7 B, to connect it to my FetHead and Audio Interface.

The sound quality is perfect, and the XLR connectors feel high quality and sturdy when connected.

Kinda hard to go wrong...
Jonny Whatshisface, 19.01.2021
I mean, there's only so much hype that can be put in to "quality microphone cables." They're balanced, sound is good and construction is good. Connectors feel robust and reliable...

'Nuff said. :)

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.

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.

Ideal for fixed usage
Tearow, 01.06.2020
My cable served me just fine for 6 years until the microphone plug wore out so much that the cable started to cause static.

I used the cable to connect an Audio-Technica AT2020 to a Behringer Xenyx 302USB and disconnected it every time I moved the microphone (almost once a day).

The cable never tangled easily and it's quality was good overall.

Noisy!
Akos, 13.08.2020
The cable looks okay, got it in a bundle, but I never used it as it makes both a humming noise as well as a hiss, compared to decent quality cables.

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
