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!

Good as other sssnakes
Rihards, 28.07.2020
These are great, feel quite unbreakable.
I like that the plug can be opened up, similarly to IPP1060, and the solder part can be seen, so these should be easy to fix once they break in far future.
Definitely a good cable.

Nice cable
Paaf, 26.06.2020
I bought this cable to use it with my Sure SM57. I do not go to gigs or shows with it. It stays in my flat ready to be used and plugged in my sound interface. It looks solid but it is the first one I buy so I can't compare with any other product but the build quality looks pretty good.

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.

Good audio cable
IvarsOzolsDB, 13.06.2013
I have used this cable for PA work and after extensive use I'd say it is a good product for a price. Ideally I would choose this for some stationary application where you plug it in and forget about it, not wind-unwind it, constantly step on it on stage etc. Connector quality is good and durable, they fit and connect good. In heavy duty use screws, that secure connector to cable, may come loose and fall out, make sure to check them once in a while. Also if your singer (in case cable is connected to mic) is aerobics teacher or jumping rabbit on stage, in heavy use cable conductor may break near connectors so you'd need to cut it and resolder it. As for conductor quality, I don't believe in gold-silver-whatever-unobtanium made cables and all that myths, it's a cable all right, it works and it works good.

Overall it's good cable for a price. For stationary use it's perfect. For intensive PA & stage work I would recommend to cough up few euros and buy a PRO Snake one (TPM 10).

Dimitarsk, 26.05.2020
I bought 8 of these cables and I've been using them twice a week for the past year and I've had zero problems. Sometimes I even happen to step on them and still, they're working :)

It's a good cable.
Fatih Yener, 19.04.2020
This cable comes with SM57 bundle. Costs you almost next to nothing and is really standart quaility. Don't expect golden pins on it but it is durable and even for 10 meters i didn't detect any tiny gain loss. This cable does the job right!

Works fine
Nonsensei, 13.11.2019
Very affordable basic cables. You'll want to get something higher quality for studio or live situations, because these will likely not be very durable in the long run. For basic band rehearsal stuff and demo recording it does the job well. Five stars for price vs. quality, three stars for overall quality.

Unbeatable in this price!
Kaczor954, 28.11.2019
I bought a lot of these in last few years and I'm really happy with them, although the cable quality isn't very robust, so I don't recommend using them in busy environment.

+ price
+ does the job

- cheap connectors
- thin cable

Great quality for the money
OrtonE, 14.06.2020
I bought few dozens of those cables over last few years and maybe 2 or 3 of them failed after a while. Nothing major though, 5 min with soldering gun sorted all issues. In my opinion there is no point paying for more expensive leads as this one offers great value for the money.

Really nice!
Jazzedout, 23.04.2020
Use this with an SM57 in my home studio.
Sturdy connectors, soft feeling cable that sits nicely with the rest of my cabling. Was worried if the longer cable would affect sound quality.
Could not really hear a difference at the end...
