I liked that these XLR cables have the ability to provide clear and quality sound without any hissing noises. I've used plenty of different brand XLR cables with some being really crappy quality and the other being mediocre. The monoprice XLR cables are a quality set and will not let you down if you're contemplating between other XLR brands. I'm a mobile DJ that does over 120 gigs a year and have been consistently using them for the past 2 years.
What I love most about these cables is the fact that they can take a beating and still run well. In addition, the hyper black plating, along with the gold plate, and gold screws truly make these cables nice to use. The only issue that i've ever run into with these cables, are the screws loosening a little bit from excessive vibrations (over a span of many gigs) being plugged into two monitors.
Cable quality is great, as usual from monoprice. However, Monoprice used a very sticky tape that left a huge amount of tape-glue on the cable rather than two twist ties or similar..Went through 10 minutes and 3 clorox wipes getting it all (mostly) off. Unusual for them. In the photo, the shiny parts on the left and right ate glue residue from the tape. It was thick enough that it coats your fingers when you touch it., and instantly picked up fuzz from everything it touched; not cleaning it was not an option. You'd end up with a fireball every foot of cable.
Monoprice Premier series is the best way to go. I can tell the difference between normal cable and Monoprice Premier, and the price is very competitive. I used this cable for a Behringer 1500 powered subwoofer from my DJ controller and Behringer Super-X Pro Crossover. All cables from my DJ controller to the Crossover are also Monoprice Premier.
I really like this cable length as well as the others I've purchased over the years. The cable is sold and the connectors are as sturdy as well.. It isn't an antenna for some radio stations I've picked up on other cables claiming similar quality. If you get Monoprice cables, you can't go wrong.
Monoprice are the best low cost XLRs on the market. I have tried out all different XLRs over the years and Monoprice are by far the best combination of price and function. These are not lightweight, these things have girth and can take a beating.
The monoprice premier series cables are now my go to stage cables. The cable is more than thick enough to instill confidence. But the connectors are the key to my preference here. Metal and assembled with metal screws, not the plastic sleeve of most comparable out there. take that with the affordable pricing and we have a winner.
