Yeah, these cables are the answer for me. It's just great quality all around. Put simply, they're quiet, strong, and won't weaken the signal. I use them on stage for student singers who regularly damage most cables I give them. I can see why these are guaranteed for life. Plus the lengths are right - either you need 25 feet for a performer to move around in the center of the stage (those extra five feet matter) or you need ten feet as just a short connecting cable.

I like the end connectors. Feels like a solid cable.
I purchased two Planet Waves, 25' Classic XLR-XLR cables along with two Mogami's. First time I put them to use, one of the cables was bad. Checked out the end connections and they looked good. Wriggled the cable a bit and got on and off continuity. So...the Planet Waves cable was not good from the start. Bummer. But you know what wasn't a bummer?

The customer service at MF. This group is all about customer service! They sent me a new cable to replace the old one right away.

I will give the new cable a try to see if I just had bad luck with this one. But, I will continue to purchase all my equipment needs from MF.
One bad one, one good one. 50 / 50 right?
Well priced if they work and last. We'll see.

Practically Indestructable!

By Yamsicles5

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Classic Series XLR Microphone Cable (Lo-Z):

If you're looking to buy some great sounding and functioning mic cables that wont break on you, and wont have to even worry about a warranty (even though mine came with one anyways) these are the mics for you! Consider the size of the cables though because I realized the cable was only a little too short for my music room in my house, but these things are great sounding, great quality, and like I said, pretty much indestructable!

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Classic Series XLR Microphone Cable (Lo-Z):

    I bought these because I needed a shorter mic cable to run from my mic stand to my guitar pedal board where I have a couple of vocal effect pedals. These cables are surprisingly good. The connectors are fairly heavy duty and the cable seems to be good quality also. Sometimes it's hard to determine if a cable is quality cable without taking it apart, so I've developed my own tests for cable quality. I moved the cable across the stage before the gig listening to see if it would pick up noise and it didn't. Cheap cabling will pick up movement noise from the cable across the stage, and these were quiet. I also put a bend in the cable to see if it 'sets' into the cable, and these didn't do that either. I bought a couple of these and will buy a couple more for backups.

        The item is not exactly what is pictured or described. Item doesn't come with a cable tie and only has a 2 year warranty. Otherwise cable looks well made.

            Love this cables, I used some at church for 10 years and we still have them in use. They last for a very long time and the sound from them through the microphone it's very clear. Wether it's a Samsung or a Shure. I was using the with a 1997 Shure and it sounded so clear. Now am using them with the SM47 the sound it great! And clear,

              Best cord for the money, don't buy cheap cable's your sound will suffer. I mic cable is the first input to a sound systems gain structure. You always have to start with a good clean signal , or everything down the chain will suffer. Buy one today, bet you'll buy more later . Great cords

                                        I bought a bunch of these for a couple reasons, one it was a great sale.. Two D' Addario has a good reputation. I had not used their cables before. I had just purchased 5 QSC K12 monitors and while I had enough cables it left me with almost no spares, but when I got them they felt really good so I put 1 cable in each speakers cases pouch and they are being used exclusively with these speakers. I figured I could really see how they work and last if I use them for the same job every time, so far...great. I can't rate higher than a 4 only because I just started using them. Ask me again in a year, then we will really know these cables.

                                              The group has been running more equipment through the PA, so I bought this and it seems to be working out fine.

                                                  I use these for our mics as well as running the powered mains. We gig a lot, so they get used often.
                                                  As with ALL cables, coil them loosely when cleaning up at night, and don't step on them. A decent cable will last for years if you take a little care of them. These, I'm sure will last me a long time.
                                                  I nab a few different sizes when they go on sale. I love them especially the high quality XLRs...nothing worse than a loose connector in our SM58s. These are nice and snug!
