I'm very happy with the quality of this XLR cable. The cable provides a clean signal path from the mic to my mixer, and doesn't pick up any noise from nearby electronic devices. I can flex and move the cable without hearing any noise either, and the cable jacket seems very sturdy. The connectors feel well made and fit perfectly. I will buy this brand again when I need more XLR cables.

Comments about Audio-Technica AT8314 Premium Microphone Cable - 6' (1.83m):

It's an excellent microphone for on the air broadcasting. It reduces background noise considerably. The tones are soft & not harsh to the ear. It's ruggedly built but yet very stylish. Also a great instrument microphone. Since I play drums I'm anxious to use it on the kick drum during recording sessions. So far no con with this piece of gear. We are very satisfied. Would highly recommend this microphone to other broadcaster & podcasters.

    Comments about Audio-Technica AT8314 Premium Microphone Cable - 6' (1.83m):

    I bought these cables to cut them up and splice with some Cat-5e network cable. The resulting concoction is great for running 2 channels of balanced (XLR) audio along side 100baseTX ethernet.
    Why did I do it? I have a PMD580 (networked digital recorder) in our church balcony which only runs at 100baseTX ethernet, and thus only uses 2 pairs out of the 4 in the Cat-5e cable. By hacking up 2 of these XLR cables, I now have a very long but low-latency+clean+cheap link to the church telephone system's music-on-hold & intercom input.

          I have no complaints -- for a reasonable price, the connectors clip into both mic and mixer smoothly, and I have yet to hear any noise.

              Bought to use with Zoom h4n and various microphones and construction is solid, Connections are tight. Cable is kind of thick and feel like it can take some abuse.
              Would buy again.

                  Good, solid built cable. I used this on a boom with built in xlr input. Did the job and hasn't caused me any grief.

                    ...know that you can get an additional 4' for the same price, and a 20' cable for literally pennies more. Odd pricing.Worked great for video in the field. Rugged with no interference.

                      The Audio-Technica XLR cable is very well made. The cable is flexible and noise-free, even when moving the cable, it doesn't introduce any noise into the signal chain like lesser XLR cables can do. This cable just works; it does what it's supposed to do, and does it without any issue. I rely on this cable in my studio for it's quiet performance, which is critical when doing commercial voice-over work.

                                        I use this product for video attached to a shotgun mic. It is really great. The rubber is very flexible so there is no noise when you move it around. just remember, 6' really isn't that long.
