Balanced XLR to 1/4" cables are typically used to connect mixers to equalizers, crossovers, compressors or amplifiers. Some mixers or rack mount gear have XLR connections where others have 1/4". These are ideal for adapting the two together. 22g Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors for enhanced signal clarity and superior RF rejection.Features:
Good/Affordable Cable for Light Use
This review is from: Seismic Audio - Black 10 foot XLR Male to TRS Male Patch Cable - Snake Microphone Cord
Pros: This cable works well for my application -- connecting a mixer with balanced 1/4" outs to a powered speaker with XLR inputs. This is a mostly fixed installation that will not see a lot of connecting and reconnecting. The cable material seems to of good quality, flexible and rubbery, but tough.
Cons: These cables are light, so may not be able to take abuse of the road or constant plugging and unplugging. Strain relief is modest. Again, for a mostly fixed installation being done on a budget, these cables are a good choice.
Other Thoughts: Note that this cable does not have molded ends. You can open each end (yes, the XLR, too) without tools to inspect--handy to be able to do when there's a problem. Also, it makes these cable repairable, if you are so inclined.
