Good quality XLR lead
Adrian3174, 09.12.2015
I bought some of these to use as microphone cables but they would be equally at home for use as connections between mixers and powered loudspeakers. These cables are extremely cheap at just 6.19 EUR. For that price I couldn't even buy the plugs let alone the cable! The plugs certainly aren't Neutrik's but they are good enough quality to use with microphones and I intend to use these for karaoke with some cheap T Bone MB 60's The female connector locks positively with the microphone and the cable certainly doesn't look and feel like a cheap and cheerful entry level cable. The cable itself is quite flexible and should give years of service before it fractures.

So how does the sssnake sound? Well I cannot distinguish any difference in sound quality between it and a Cordial CAM 9 which costs more than double the price. I cannot detect any restriction in the upper frequency response. There is no microphony produced when handling the cable and I cannot detect any hum or noise even when the cable is placed directly next to mains cabling.

Would I recommend these cables, definitely yes! and at the price I would suggest stocking up before Thomann realise what a bargain these are and put the price up!

Still going strong after 7 years
markodarko, 13.05.2014
I bought this cable nearly 7 years ago back in 2007 and I'm happy (and amazed) to report that it's still going strong! Now, I normally make my own cables (or used to until cables like this Snake came out meaning I can get a complete cable for cheaper than it'd cost me to buy one Neutrik XLR plug!) and ones I've bought in the past have nearly always failed - either in the cable itself or in the soldered joints. Not so with this one.

I initially bought it thinking that it was cheaper to buy this than buy the cable and plugs, then if it failed I'd replace the plug etc, but to my astonishment it's still going so I'm chuffed to bits about that.

Now, I must caveat this post with the information that I look after my equipment - especially my cables. I never, ever coil them tightly as that can cause breaks in the cable itself, and I never yank them or pull at them when they're plugged in - and that goes for Jack cables too. So I think if you look after this cable you'll have super cheap (price-wise), high-quality cable that'll last you years. Mine certainly has.

Excellent cable ... bought 15 of it and hae them in my studio
Stam Athens, 03.06.2019
Their quality is superb for the money I paid, I used them and still use them for making my cover videos and I enjoy the fact that so cheap cables do such good job .. extra durable for studio use but not had the chance to use them on the stage

5-star because of ROT
Hans-Marius, 10.12.2018
This is value for your money. It's a decent cable. I bought 20 and used them while recording an album and had no issues with quality or anything. Reliable product at an affordable price.

Quality XLR
12.02.2017
this 10m XLR for the price is fantastic! I am a function DJ and when people are making speeches or I am making announcements this cable comes in very handy. The fact it is 10m long also gives me the saftey knowing that the cable wont come out the mixer as I or the person using the microphone will never be that far away from the DJ booth. In terms of quality it is also very good. I needed a cheap XLR and this fits the bill with little to no audio loss in the cable (which you find with some cheap cables). I would reccomend this product for anyone looking for something cheap and reliable!

It's an Xlr cable
Paresse, 22.05.2019
There's really not much more to say bar it's an Xlr cable and the cheapest one I have ever purchased yet somehow manages to be the sturdiest I have purchased. Slap one (or 20) of these onto each order you make on this site, you won't regret it.

Perfect, Job Done, No Hassle.
06.08.2015
These cables are excellent. That?s all you need to know. Needed a quick fix and they have worked very well indeed. They are very strong and sturdy considering the price. I have yet to have any cracklings or sound problems with this product. They come in a couple of different colours which is great if you are working with a number of inputs or microphones - colour coding stuff helps so much! Rather than buying something cheap, spend the extra few Pounds/Euros or whatever. Similarly, if you are looking at buying a very expensive set of XLR's I would suggest taking a look at these because I was very surprised at the quality. Highly recommended.

Plain and simple
Edward6067, 16.06.2015
This is really a does what it says on the tin product, XLR cable that you should really have many lying about your house, ready to use.

I have had many arguments as whether its better to buy one expensive xlr or many back up, after using thses particular cables for a few years I have decided bulk buying cheap xlrs is perfect for me. Sound difference at gigs is not noticeable and allows me to know I can quickly replace a dodgy cable. Connection to microphone can break with wear and tear over time but so far I have had minimum breakages for the amount of times I have used these cables for micing vocals and guitar.

Buy two! or even three

Still Going Strong
15.07.2014
I bought this cable around 4 years ago and it is still working all this time later after numerous gigs. It was originally purchased as a quick replacement for another cable that I was using but I am impressed to say that it is still with us. I thought that it would have died long before now! The metal on the cable ends feels a bit brittle on first impressions but I can't fault it at all. I try to take good care of my cables but obviously there are times when something is going to happen to them. I thought this cable had met its end when someone dropped a PA speaker on the Male XLR at the beginning of one gig but after a quick bit of DIY with a screw driver it was back to normal and still as strong.
I would recommend them if you are looking to get standard but sturdy XLR cables.

Good quality at a great price
GabrielStiffKicks, 13.05.2019
I bought these cables for my bandmates, we've been using them extensively during our out-of-town gigs, and all I can say is that they are great. have had them for almost a year now and we've had no issues. Usually the handling of mic cables is not a focal point during gear setup/teardown, so the durability of these is very much appreciated. Would buy again.

Thomann does it again.
LesPaulToulouse, 25.08.2016
I can't believe the quality of this cable, considering it costs pennies compared to name-brands. It does the job, period. Construction is great & I even unscrewed the caps to inspect all connection & soldering joints -all of which are more than decent. Recorded some vocals to compare with my "name-brand" XLR's that cost 10x more & didn't notice any differences. I normally would pay the extra money for top-notch mic cables because, well, it's important to have well-made cables for both live & studio settings with signal reliability. I get it. I took the risk & got gold in the end, as I would highly recommend this product. It doesn't have a flux capacitor or shoot lasers or all that fancy stuff -it's economic, reliable, well-built & efficient. Will definitely grab more in the near future.

does exactly the job its needed for
09.09.2016
This product went into a church installation, so probably won't move again until I go and service it all next year, but the client was really happy.

Pro: great for that job
Con: Not sure how it would withstand going on a busy tour, but thats not why I bought it, so great for the needs it went.

Cheap and reliable.
