I got these because none of my live mic's have on/off switches on them which gets annoying when only 1 or 2 are in use. I hate having to go back to my mixing board to turn the gain down on mic's that are not in use or unplug them or whatever. The on/off switches on these cables have never failed and I've been using them for about a year. The cable's themselves are durable and solid. They click into place nicely with all of my mic's and have never given me any issues as far as crackling or popping. Reliable, sturdy cables. I have never used them for recording, so I can't comment there, but as far as live mic cables go, these are the only one's I will ever use again.
Good length, on/off switch is a huge plus.
relatively cheap for a cable this durable. Well worth the cost.

Much easier for me with to use a mic cable with its own on/off switch. However, the rotary switch on this particular cable does not turn smoothly. In other words it is sticky. As well, sometimes when attempting to switch to the off position the mic still remains live. Quality control from the factory is lacking. I will be sending back to exchange for another. If the replaced item works correctly, I'll post a positive review. Let's hope it does. Would not recommend at this time.

Does what it's supposed to do

By Cam Hill

Comments about Livewire Essential XLR Microphone Cable with On/Off Switch:

I really like the fact that the on/off switching is completely silent. No pops or other strange sounds. The switch itself, though plastic, seems to be well made, the action being tight and smooth. This is the second cable of this type that I've owned ---- my dog chewed up the last one! I love it.
Though I typically use less expensive mikes with on/off switches for the karaoke singers at my shows, my personal favorite is an Audix OM2, which has no switch. This cable does what it's supposed to do.
This is a well made cable and is very flexible, making it easy to handle on stage.
Maybe a bit pricey, but worth it.

Comments about Livewire Essential XLR Microphone Cable with On/Off Switch:

This is the second of these that i have. I love them for versatility; easy shut-off/on capabilities. It is a good feature when you have a mic that you don't want on all the time and don't have a full-time sound guy.

    I am a solo vocalist and this lets me turn the mic on and off without having to reach for the mixer. Very slick.

      Just picked up one more of these to go with an EV-767. I've had two for well over five years. The switches are well-made, silent, and still work well. Quality Neutrik XLR connections.

          Does what I needed. Was surprised that the plug with the on/off switch was almost cross threaded from a sloppy assembly. Managed to save it and it works fine. It's a simple assembly just check your quality control .
