Pro Audio Cable - 6FT XLR Male to 1/4" Mono Male Cable

XLR to ¼" cables are typically used for analog signals, primarily audio. These cables are commonly used on headphones, microphones, amplifiers, instruments, speakers, and much more. This cable feature an unbalanced nickel plated TS ¼" plug and 3 pin XLR plug. The ultra-flexible 7mm PVC jacked reduces cable kinking and helps prevent damage to the connectors. Internally this cable is made from 22 AWG twisted pair cable wrapped in an aluminum foil shield and 60% copper braid for maximum shielding from EMI/RFI interference. Pro-audio cables are perfect for novice and professional musicians.

    I needed a cable for use in an aircraft, to connect the intercom audio to a Zoom audio recorder for filming a documentary. It was important that the plugs and cable were reliable and easy to manage. The Pro-Audio was just that. The cable does not become tangled, and the plugs stay plugged. Couldn't ask for more than that.

    We used this product to come off the mono sub out on a Mackie 1604VLZ to a Mackie powered sub woofer. This cable was more suited that trying to use adapters and microphone cables.

Q: What are XLR Cables commonly used for?

A: XLR Connectors are commonly used for professional audio, video and stage lighting equipment.

Q: What makes an XLR audio cable and DMX cable different?

A: The XLR audio cable is designed for audio frequencies (low frequencies) and is a low impedance (75 Ohm), high capacitance cable. DMX data cable is designed for a wide bandwidth high frequency data stream, it is a higher impedance (110 Ohm) and low capacitance cable. In the DMX system, this impedance mismatch can result in intermittent problems due to a distortion of the waveform of the DMX bit stream. You may have flickering LEDs, scroller miscue, or a twitching moving light. Also some XLR audio cables tie the signal return and shield drain wire differently than we tie the twisted pair return within a DMX cable. This may introduce a potential grounding problem in your system.

Q: What is a balanced cable and what makes them different then an unbalanced cable?

A: Balanced refers to a “three-legged” type of electrical signal that has two legs independent of ground. One is generally considered positive and the other negative in voltage and current flow with respect to ground. Both legs carry the signal. The benefit is that any noise that gets induced into the line will be common to both the positive and negative sides and is thus canceled when it arrives at its destination, assuming the destination is balanced. Balanced lines are generally best for long cable runs due to their ability to reject induced noises. XLR and TRS type cables are designed to transmit balanced audio from one balanced device to another.

Unbalanced cables are less complicated and less expensive but they have limitations. Any audio signal requires two wires or conductors to function. In an unbalanced cable situation, one of those conductors is used to carry both the audio signal and ground (shield). Unbalanced cables are much more susceptible to induced noise problems than their balanced counterparts because any induced noise in one conductor is not canceled by similar noise in the other conductor and may be carried with the signal into connected equipment. In general, unbalanced lines should be kept as short as possible to minimize potential noise problems.
