On the face of it what is the point of buying a product that comes largely in black and of which most of us have many metres of it. I speak of XLR male to female microphone cable that is not black ! The reason for deviating from the ever present black cable came about when I was checking the cable runs for a live recording session of a large choir, where to my horror one of the musicians had covered the cables with tape for understandable health and safety reasons; however with only twenty minutes to go before the start of the concert panic set in as I had to trace back the runs to sort out a problem with one microphone.
The problem or the potential possibility of having the same trouble in the future has now been solved not by doing away with all my stock of black XLR cable but by introducing an element of colour so that at short notice I can know where I am with the setup.
Further, in simpler set ups I now use coloured cable and ask the colleague who assists me to have yellow cable for the sound-stage left and blue to the right with a touch of red in the middle, if that is where the lead singer is. Colours do make a difference and simplify cable runs to advantage !!
I would give the product a five star rating but I should really wait say three years to see cable has any long term faults which would seem unlikely given inspection of it.
