Overall a good value for the money.
Just a Plain Jane mic cable. Good for backline hookups, DI boxes, I wouldn't use them on wired mics. Just my opinion. I'd get a heavier cable for that.
First thing I checked was continuity. All five cables checked well. I'm using these to connect the in-ear monitrs to the stage box, so I got 5 of them to wrap to make a mini-snake from the in-ear rack case. So I start wrapping these together and find I have 4 Six foot and 1 eight +/- foot cable. No problem for me really, but just indicative of the quality control (BTW: they DON'T make an 8 foot cable)
Two XLR plugs and six feet of wire for the price. Almost as cheap as I could build them and no time spent. Again, I'd use these for any static situation such as connecting devices, DI's and even light controllors. I just wouldn't put them in heavy use.

American-made Horizon mic cables are fine cables for normal sound system work. You can buy cheaper Chinese cables that you will throw out in about a month unless they are plugged in and forgotten, or you can spend more for boutique cabling, but you won't likely get more bang for the buck. Like all cables, they develop flaws with use and need to be repaired. It happens; Buy a soldering iron and quit whining. (Incidentally, one of the three conductors in the connector is not supposed to have insulation. It's called the shield.)

For The Band on a Budget

By Muscian Locator

from TX

Comments about Rapco Horizon Standard Lo-Z Microphone XLR Cable:

I bought two of the 20 foot cables and one 50 foot cables and I couldn't be happier. Good, solid connectors and well solderd ends. As a man with a family, I try and get the best deal I can and theses cables fit my criteria perfectly. A cable that can do the job I ask and be able to withstand a little abuse. Although there is a slight buzz, it isn't enough to notice or cause for concern. Rapco has amazing cables and I do plan to buy more in the future. And with and added lifetime warrenty, how can someone go wrong. Simply put; Good, affordable cable that will do whatever you need it to.

Comments about Rapco Horizon Standard Lo-Z Microphone XLR Cable:

I own a number of these cables for both studio and road work. I've had great success without ANY failure yet in over a year! I like the 50 footers so all my cables are the same & max length. I'm buying more as I expand my remote unit.

pretty good

By Barry Bynum

from TEXAS!

Comments about Rapco Horizon Standard Lo-Z Microphone XLR Cable:

the actual cable is nice, plugs are fair
Rapco needs to improve the size and fit of the XLR-F at the Mic end. These are OK for various runs but about half the time they are quite loose in the connection to the mic, depending on the brand of the mic.... they are most loose on Shure mics which would affect a lot of users. The actual chassis of the plug probably needs to be a tiny bit larger for a snug fit.
Good value iff you dont expect it to be stellar

Consider this...

By RockinSince1990

from Leslie, MI

Comments about Rapco Horizon Standard Lo-Z Microphone XLR Cable:

Initially, these cables from Horizon look like a great deal. But you get what you pay for. The other day the church where I was recently hired was about to throw out 5 "dead" mic cables, and I said I'd take em home to resolder the ends and hopefully make em work again. When I got home I realized that they were ALL these Horizon Cables. Upon fixing the ends, I discovered three vital flaws: The hand soldering is COLD soldering, not recommended for audio applications. It is less durable and harder on the wire making the connections. Second, the black pieces to the connecters (to keep the wire from bending/breaking the solder points) are not big/long enough to protect against harm. I found it incredibly easy to twist the cable so that it literally broke the solder points inside the connectors. Third, the wiring for this cable is seriously interesting. Points 2 and 3 are seperate wires, however point 1 is simply exposed copper, loosely wrapped around the two other wires throughout the entire cable. I suppose it works, but it's not as durable as I or any gigging band would like.Long story short, if you plan on using these for a lead mic, don't trust em to hold up for much. These 5 broke after simply being plugged into a microphone on a mic stand every Sunday. The cable itself appears to be decent, so if you just used this in a studio where it won't be moved around much it should hold its own reasonably well. For a touring band or an application where you need to regularly take down and set up however, find a better cable. It's worth it.

decent

By techman-g.RpS

from Charlotte NC

Comments about Rapco Horizon Standard Lo-Z Microphone XLR Cable:

I have used several in my band, and with care they hold up very well. There is no such thing as COLD soldering lol. A cold solder joint is a term for a bad solder connection. The bare wire is shielding which is wrapped around the other wires to "shield" them.

Not sure whY I'd buy another brand

By Joe-.Bzua

from Redding, CA

Comments about Rapco Horizon Standard Lo-Z Microphone XLR Cable:

I was shopping for a 20' cable for rehearsal, my 50' is just to cumbersome.Just looking for an inexpensive, shorter cable. The Horizon is reasonably priced and there are many in that price range. But after reading bad reviews about many other cheaper brands. I realized, I have had my 50' cable for like 15-18 years. Used it for gigs, rehearsal, singing and spoken word. It's been plugged in and unplugged countless times, coiled up, stepped on and it still works as great as the day I bought it.Never had one problem. Then it occurred to me that my 50' cable that has lasted and held up like a beast is a Horizon. So why would I buy anything else.

Great for the money

By Sarge

from Johns Creek, GA

Comments about Rapco Horizon Standard Lo-Z Microphone XLR Cable:

Fine for working musicians or casual players, singers.
These work fine for everyday use and gigging. Not sure that a normal ear could distinguish between this cable and a much more expensively priced one. They are not as strongly built as the more expensive versions but if you band members are like mine and step and pull and twist them, replacing every few years is fine.
Purchased these in bulk previously and out of 10, 8 still work fine.
Great for gigging bands as they are cheap to replace, I use a better grade for cables in studio that I leave connected.

I use over 40 Horizon cables in a normal setup. Occasionally, one will go bad and we toss them in a box and send them in once a year or so. They very promptly return fixed or new cables to us.

I bought 4 of these to use with cardioid choir mics in a church. They all sizzle and pop, especially when you jiggle them at the base of the mic connector. Spend a little more and get some quality!

    This cable has a good build. There are 2 screws on the connecting piece to hold it together as opposed to the cheaper standard of 1 screw. the cable is fluid and doesn't feel like a rope. The mic clips in without cutting in and out. It's a great buy.

          These are great cables. We've been using them for about 4 months now and haven't had any problems yet. Treat them with care and try not to step on them and they will save you a lot of money over Monster Cables. Plus, if they ever do break, you have a lifetime warranty!

                Bought this as an additional mic cord for my home studio when it was on sale. Decent quality for this use. Shielding on the cable isn't the best and we will see how long the plugs last. That said the sound was decent so I will be keeping it.
