MF sent me these cables to replace some flakey ones. They suggested these ones since I had a bad experience with the others. Everything from the box to the cables are good quality. I noticed that it has a lifetime guarantee. The connectors aren't the average tinny material. They're similar to the connectors on my expensive Audio Technica ones. The cables themselves are a little thicker and made of good rubber. The list price is a little high. But with the discount as a result of my previous cable it worked out well. Thank you MF for suggesting these cables. I'm using them now. Sometimes it's worth the investment to get something right the first time.

These cables work well, the cable seems ok, but these Neutrik connectors are very light. Took one apart and they aren't very solid at all. There is also a reinforcement on the cable about an inch from the connector. Not sure what the reason for this is. It seems it would have served a better purpose coming from inside the jack. They're probably OK for studio use, but I don't think they would hold up to the road. For the money, you are much better off going with the Rapco 2-pack of 20' cords. JMHO! Hope this helps.

      Comments about Livewire Essential Microphone Cable:

      After purchasing a hand full of other cables, I was starting to get tired of cables that nickel and dime me. The other cables were not durable so I had to find a good solution as I wanted to limit technical difficulties at live shows. I finally decided the open my pocket a little bigger and to spend the money for these. My fellow DJ buddy referred me to buy these and the lifetime guarantee was what sold it. Now it would be a bit different if the lifetime guarantee meant I had to SHIP them back to the manufacturer, but these are cables the are made by a company that gives customers the chance to return to have them fixed by ANY authorized dealer. Guitar Center is one for me and they happen to be down the road about 10 minutes. I decided to stop buying a bunch of cords for them to work 5 times and than needing to be replaced. Now I have confidence in my cables. Now, after testing these at 2 live shows yesterday, they did not disappoint at all. I heard shorting in the other cables, but NOT these!!! I am very satisfied. The connectors seem to be firmly and well put together which makes them durable even when the most rough performers handle the microphone. If your doing Karaoke, these are a MUST if you want reliable and durable cables for your singers to use. Your singers most likely are not conscious of how they handle the microphone and shorts are bound to happen eventually even with these cables, but with these, you have the piece of mind!

        Comments about Livewire Essential Microphone Cable:

        Had problems with the less expensive cable in hooking up our snakes with DI boxes. Didn't want to go with the more expensive cable (i.e. Mogami) so I searched around for an alternative. The Live Wire w/ the Neutrik connectors fit the bill. The signal is clean and clear and the connectivity is great. No pops or distortion. These cables have worked well with all of our microphones as well as every DI box that we've tried it on.

          I determined I needed a 15ft cord and this works fine. As with ANY cords, time will tell as to longevity/durability, but I anticipate this is going to give me good service.

            We were having problems with the lower priced cables. They weren't "playing well" with the DI boxes that the musicians have been bringing in. These cables work well with a variety of DI boxes as well as microphone cables.
