Gearlux XLR Cable Features

The Gearlux male to female 10-foot long cable is an ideal choice for connecting your microphone for that crisp voice result. These cables are guaranteed years of use without any issues. The XLR female connector can be plugged into any mixer, preamp, or recording equipment.

The oxygen-free copper conductors used in the cable ensure that signal transmission is noiseless. These high conductivity copper alloys are electrolytically refined to reduce the oxygen content in the product to a minimum. They are high conductivity cables with thermal resistance, which improve signal clarity while minimizing the interference to a minimum.

The XLR connectors used in the cables are made from sturdy metal and offer greater reliability than common alternatives.

The Gearlux balanced cable is the perfect example that a signal can be delivered from the source to the destination with minimal or zero interference regardless of the extent of grouping in the area. The cables are not only balanced but well insulated to prevent leakage of noise from outside to inside or vice versa.

The Gearlux 10-Foot Balanced XLR Microphone Cable package contains a single cable weighing around 1 pound. The product dimensions are 9 x 2 x 8 inches with 8 ounces of shipping weight.
