I use these for "adapter" cables between my small mixer (1/4" out) to connect to my mains (XLRs).
This way I can have different sized mic cables for whatever gig setup we're playing for microphones and my mains. We play out lots, so I like to keep the equipment I gotta haul to a minimum, while having spares plus flexibility. These seem well built as well with a high quality XLR. These do the trick!

I bought these to be able to add microphones to my new Tascam US1800 using XLR cables (there are only 8 XLR inputs on the Tascam). Unfortunately, the XLR connector on these cables were the wrong sex (Male vs. female). For the life of me, I cannot imagine what purpose a TRS to Male XLR would serve. I guess that is why there are NO reviews for this product. Cost me the time and money to return, but thanks to MF for having a good return policy. I sure wish the MF sales rep would have questioned my purchase when I ordered it since I ordered it with the US1800. I gave it 3 stars because I see no use for the product, but the quality looked ok.

      Comments about Hosa HSX-003 Balanced 1/4-inch TRS Male to 3-Pin XLR Male Cable:

      Great for the price. I am impressed by the quality of the connectors and the cable. These are being used in my studio, so once hooked up, they will stay put. They seem to pass the audio just fine, so no complaints. MF also packed them very carefully, so happy with the shipping as well.

        Comments about Hosa HSX-003 Balanced 1/4-inch TRS Male to 3-Pin XLR Male Cable:

        I own a pair of Mackie TH-15 powered cabs that I use occasionally for small combos. The Mackies won't accept a TRS cable so I use the converter to come out of the mixer and then couple to an XLR cable to input to the first Mackie and then another XLR cable connects the two cabs. Works just fine.

          These appear well made and sturdy. They are what they are... patch cables. Working great so far. Can't speak to durability as I've just started using the cables.

              If you need to convert a balanced 1/4" to an XLR and want to get the XLR away from the pre-amp or processor, this is a well made cable for that.

              I use these cables to send outputs from my 3 Presonus FireStudio Projects to powered monitors, powered PAs and amps.

                                              Good quality end connectors, wire seems to be heavy duty. No complaints from me.
