Good budget mic cables
Cirrus on 2014/01/28
While XLR cables can be purchased at basically any price, I believe the point of diminishing returns arrives quite quickly. Most mics are perfectly happy to push their signal down vast lengths of cable, and the XLR's balanced nature means that noise is rarely a problem.
These cables therefore represent a good investment. While they are relatively cheap, most XLR leads at any price point will with heavy use eventually get loose connections. What's nice about the sssnake leads is that the connectors aren't moulded so it's possible to unscrew them and fix them yourself. For that reason, I've got no complaints.
