The orange, 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 cables are known for their quality and having different color cables makes for speedy set up, visual tracing and if, for example, you even color code your board controls, hand to eye coordination. These cables are built to last.

      Comments about L-4E6S Star Quad XLRM to XLRF Microphone Cable - 25' (Purple):

      Sam Mallery who makes a lot of technical videos for B&H recommended these videos at his blog (what to get for an audio professional). The manufacture seems top notch and I love the ability to match mics to my mixer using color coded cables. And hey, who doesn't like a little color. Ask me in five years how durable they are, but the specs are top notch and the components name brand. I'd rather not worry about my cables on a shoot. I've purchased 4 Canare cables and my review is the same for all of them.

              I haven't used it a ton yet, but I'm super impressed with the quality and feel of it. In case anyone is wondering, it doesn't fit through the B&H# ROBP boom pole. which is why i bought it. But i liked this cable so much i kept it anyway!

                I bought these cables as a gift for my sister, they are very sturdy and though the pictures are deceiving, they are definitely white. Seem to be good quality cables.

                    Usually I build my own cable from spare parts and my cable reel, but I use Canare Star Quad specifically in student educational situations. Often departmental cables go missing - stolen by students and staff, so cable building is a constant issue. With this cable they rarely go walk about, and when they do I often find out about it immediately when I see the culprit with my cable.

                          These are no name cables to me (means I have never heard of them before)... but they are lovely.

                          Super nice. Great connectors, very nice cable jacket, great color options, great price. What's not to love?

                          I do have some Mogami and they are nice also but much more expensive.

                          Full disclosure...... I am not a cable snob. A lot of my other gear is super high end but it's hard for me to get too excited about cables. That's why I think these are so nice...... great cable, great price.

                          Highly recommended.

                            I've been playing in bands for 34 years now and these are, by far, the best mic cables I've seen. They are made really well and the cable itself is superior to most cables on the market. The Neutrik connectors are a nice touch. Solid connections with absolutely no play in the connection. I'm now going to buy more of these to outfit my studio.

                                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.

                                  OK, it's just a cable, but if any cable can be called luxurious, this would be it. Clean signal, solid Neutrik connectors, silky handling, and your choice of color. What more can you ask from a cable.

                                      I often reach for an XLR on a daily basis. This is a great cable and I will purchase more in the future.

                                            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

                                              Star-Quad in colours are incredibly helpful when troubleshooting signal path between 8-12 drum mics on a kit. L-4E6S is a dream to solder if you have to and the Neutrik heads look like their ready to do battle, session after session. Thanks to B&H for making visual organization so available!

                                                  These cables are absolutely fantastic. Sturdy yet flexible rubber coating for easy coiling. Reliable connections and double-grounded for up to 10dB of noise reduction BEFORE it even gets to the preamp.

                                                  Not to mention the obvious... they're color coated for easy labeling and tracing your audio lines quickly at a show. Nuf said.
