I bought some of these to use as microphone cables and being coloured allow easy recognition of which channel is which on the mixer. These cables are extremely cheap at just 6.40 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, if you need a colured cable then definitely yes! At this price I would suggest stocking up before Thomann realise what a bargain these are and put the price up!
