To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My cable Is NOT BALANCED as stated by the manufacturers description of the cable. It is unusable because of excessive line noise..I compared it too a known BALANCED cable and it was vastly different in line quality. DO NOT BUY !
these cables are not balanced in the slightest. the amount of EM and noise that was coming out of my monitors was unbearable with these until I switched to different cables that were actually balanced, and what do you know, no more interference.
I purchased about a dozen of these from 2016 to 2018. Today in 2020, every other XLR-to-1/4 I bought in that era is still working, while every single Monoprice cable I've ever purchased has failed, with no exceptions. These just don't last, and I wasted so much money and time buying these because I didn't know better and liked the feel of these.
I'm almost tempted to do a demo of all my failed cables just in hopes that someone believes me and doesn't waste their time. I know there are overwhelmingly positive reviews but if you're reading this, please take my word for it.
Got the cable, plugged it in and was extremely happy. While streaming, I look at my audio interface the cable is plugged into and see a screw sticking out of the cable. I use a screw driver to turn it a couple times and it screws back into place as the corresponding screw. For something you buy to arrive with a part not even screwed in all the way, is ridiculous, glad I caught it and didn't loose the tiny screw!!!!
