Product Highlights
  • Braided Copper Shield
  • Flexible in Extreme Cold Weather
  • 4-Conductor Style Construction
  • Irradiated Polyethylene Insulation
  • Designed for Handheld Mic Applications
  • Reduced Handling Noise
  • Rejects EMI and RFI
  • 21 AWG Wire

The blue, 25' L-4E6S Star Quad XLRM to XLRF Microphone Cable from Canare is especially designed for handheld microphone applications in live sound, rehearsals and other situations. In addition to mic-level signals, the cable can also be used to carry line-level signals such as for connecting your mixer to power amps.

The L-4E6S Star Quad cable features a 4-conductor design that is engineered to substantially reduce vulnerability to electromagnetic and radio frequency interference when compared with 2-conductor cables. It uses 21 AWG copper wire which features cross-linked, flexible irradiated polyethylene insulation, which is designed to maintain maximum frequency response and to be more heat resistant than ordinary polyethylene. It also utilizes braided copper shielding which is designed for greater noise rejection and durability than spiral shielding.

The cable also includes cotton filler which is in place to help to cut down handling noise. This can be beneficial in handheld microphone applications in which the cable may be subject to a substantial amount of movement.

          Canare does quality cables, the color makes it easy to distinguish and gives it a better appearance, I call it pro-blue just like the Porta Brace bags.

                First off, with my amateur gear and ear, I notice no difference between this, and the Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series . This cable is softer, meaning it does not trasmit physical movement as easily. Honestly, if your not a professional, save the money. If you are a professional, this is top of the line stuff right here. yyy

                    Having relied on others' XLR cables on numerous occasions until I got one with bad connections and no soldering kit available, I decided to get my own cable for audio recording on film shoots. There are lots of cables out there, even cheaper ones that are good enough to get the job done, but I chose this cable because of the different colors available. Every location I've been, it's always black XLR cables, but to see a different colored one, blue, in this case, it's easy to spot my cable and for it to not get mixed up with someone else's kit. I inspected the soldering on both ends and it looks solid. The piece that clamps onto the cable housing when tightening the cap on the connector really clamps tightly causing a depression mark on the cable housing as opposed to some knockoff brands I've seen that allows it to have some play when tight eventually causing separation of the soldered wires. I figure they call it Star-Quad because both ends have dual wires soldered to each tab and one thicker gauge wire soldered to the ground tab. The clamping piece also separates from the 3-pin housing allowing for re-soldering if necessary, but I doubt I'll have to do that anytime soon. Glad I got this.

                        At the [$] price point these cables are a bargain. Very flexible, dead quite, well constructed and come in colors for easy sorting/tracing. Great updated Neutrik connectors. I had a noticable improvement in transient response versus my old cables recording drums. Highly recommended.

                            Don't listen to [@] jerks who try to sell you their overpriced cables. These are more than adequate for just about every application, including professional work. I am a professional location sound mixer for film/video productions, and these are the XLRs that I recommend to everyone. Crystal clear sound, well shielded, easy to wrap, durable... What more do you need?

                              To sum it up, I try to use Canare cables when at all possible, and this is no exception. This is a high quality cable, so do yourself a favor, and dont over spend for the other "names". These are some of the best mic cables you can get, very PRO in quality.

                              [...] I love that these cables come in various colors as well. I use the colors so that I can identify the size of the cable at a glance (white is 15', blue is 25', and black is 50'). It makes grabbing the right size so much easier, without having to unwind all of your cables just to find the right length!
