I bought this XLR-cable, in order to reduce the cable mess in my home studio. In this case, I just needed a short XLR-cable to connect my LDC mic to my audio interface, and this one does its job rather well. There's no extra mess on my desk, and that's just lovely.
The cable seems to be a bit more sturdy than the sssnake-cables, which you can get for a very modest price. Connectors seem to be quite rugged, and I haven't found any faults in this cable. Of course the operating circumstances can't get much nicer for a cable like this in my home studio, but I think it would survive quite well in live situations as well.
If you need a short and sturdy XLR-cable, I wouldn't go further than this. I would definitely buy these cables in the future as well.
