Microphone cables are a type of durable audio cable that commonly feature a single audio cable inside an outer casing. Microphone cables are available in a range of styles including single core and multicore. Microphone cables are commonly used to carry individual audio signals, for example from a microphone to an output. Microphone cables are ideal for attaching an XLR connector or jack, allowing them to be plugged into an amplifier or PA system to amplify vocals.
Assembled microphone cables are found in both portable applications, where they are stored loose or on a cable drum (a spool used to carry different types of electrical wires) or are permanently installed. Microphone cables often feature a standard jack or XLR connector, allowing them to effortlessly connect to amplifiers and sound systems. Microphone cables are highly versatile and can be used in a wide range of areas including home and studio for recording, as well as venues in a live setting.
