I was out on the road without enough XLR cables, and with tons of perfectly silent, rugged and reliable non-monster cables at home, I couldn't justify anything more than the cheapest they had at Guitar Center. Bad move. Surprisingly, these cables we're, in fact, the cheapest. They also worked great for a few days. When I got them back home, however, the buzz, hum and even radio broadcasts these cables picked up made them unusable. Not wanting to bother returning them, I cut away the rubber sheath around one of the connectors to investigate the problem. The first thing I found is the actual connectors are nothing more than the run of the mill connectors that are readily available all over eBay. The second thing I found was that the cable was in fact wired INCORRECTLY. Knowing this, I cut the cable as close to the connector as possible and spliced it back together with the correct wiring. Naturally, it was dead silent.I always knew monster cables we're overpriced, however, I never knew they were just flat out bad quality. Never will I ever buy a monster cable again.

AM Radio Antenna

Comments about Monster Legacy S-100 XLR Microphone Cable - 5':

I have the 20' version of this cable. It picks up AM radio like crazy. Even with an RF attenuator, I can still here AM radio between songs and during soft/quiet passages. Other mic cables I use (including cheapies) don't have this problem. This cable is unusable and not worth the price.

Waste of time and $

By 541 drumhead

from Pendleton Oregon

Comments about Monster Legacy S-100 XLR Microphone Cable - 5':

I have used monster cables in the past and have had very good luck with them. Started working with a new band last year and talked them into buying 5 new monster vocal cables. I had been taking a raft of crap ever since. 5 of the seven went bad the first time we used them. The big problem? Monster won't stand behind there products.

Do not purchase these cables. I have had good success with monster 1/4" cables. These only lasted a very short time and they were well taken care of.

Comments about Monster Legacy S-100 XLR Microphone Cable - 5':

Monster makes some great cables, don't bother with with this cheap line or the hype of their name.
I bought a few in a pinch when I was on the road. They're not built well enough to take the beating cables get on the road.
Buy mogami cable and neutrik connectors in bulk and solder your own if you can. Or spend more and buy their performer or studio pro line. Just stay clear from these if you perform a lot.

    wow, Monster customer service really makes my dislike for the company feel personal. dont expect to have your warantee honored, and expect to wait a month for replacement if they do. Mogami is simple-buy their product-a superior product-and if it goes bad, you can just exchange it at your local store.

          Comments about Monster Legacy S-100 XLR Microphone Cable - 5':

          The Monster XLR cable is excellent. It is very durable and a good value.

          I was disappointed by the packaging. The mailroom/shipping team must be instructed to cut corners. They shipped it in a flimsy envelope with no packing. Both connectors were left to flop around in transit. As mentioned above, Monster makes durable gear. But this shipping condition allowed the connectors to hit against any hard surface whenever the light "envelope" was tossed around. It would have been helpful even if they just wrapped the connectors in bubble wrap.

              I've been singing for over 35 years and used just about every kind of cable made through those years. I finally found a cable that is awesome!!! It's dependable, strong,has high quality, and it's lifetime warranty makes it so easy to have it replaced immediately to say the least of saving you money!!! This is my cable until I retire although no intentions on retiring!!!

                I almost always go with a monster cable. The 50' allows me to place my powered speakers farther away. I did have one go bad on me a few years ago, but with the lifetime warranty, I just took it to any store that carries Monster, they tested it to make sure it was bad and promptly gave me a brand new one.

                There's nothing like doing sound check before a gig and finding out that something is causing a monitor speaker to barely function. That happened recently when I was using one of these cords linking three monitor speakers. One monitor didn't work, and we tested to see if something was wrong with the monitor. It was fine. Then we switched out all the 3 cords and found it was one of these. I never will buy this low-end Monster Cable again.

                Bought a pair of 20' cables while on vacation this summer. I had heard good things about Monster Cable. I brought them home and plugged them into different mics to try out. First was a SM57, and it worked fine. then I plugged into a couple pencil condensors for overhead mics. STUCK! the jacks seemed to be slightly bigger than other cables, and it was very difficult to slide out of the microphone. I later plugged into my ART tubefire 8 interface to do a little recording, and again, got stuck!.. ended up breaking the preamp trying to pry it out.Not worth it

                Bought these cables in Hamilton Ontario from a local music store. I own other Monster product. I got it home, plugged it into my AKG C214 and immediately noticed a problem with the XLR ends - way too tight! I tried it about 3 times and decided to not try again because I didn't want to ruin my mic. Then i went online and read the reviews here of this product. Shame on Monster for producing terrible cables such as these. Your good cables are good, and these made in China are horrible! I am going to purchase a P500 at somepoint - reviews seem better on those!

                These cables are the worst I've ever had. They cut out with just a little sideways movement. One of the is stuck in my rack mount compressor and won't come out. It will probably kill my compressor when the cable needs replacing. The sound was no better than with cheaper cables.
