Premium Balanced XLR Cable

Standard male to female XLR cable for balanced applications, suited for use as a microphone cable, for pro-audio interfacing between devices and as a speaker cable for active loudspeakers such as professional studio reference monitors. This cable uses a twisted pair of conductors that carry an out-of-phase signal between balanced interfaces to minimise interference, which can be heard as noise. A really clever yet relatively simple and time-tested method commonly used for line-level and pro-audio signal transmission, especially over longer runs of cable. A high quality balanced XLR cable is imperative for clean microphone signals that are typically very low level and susceptible to electromagnetic interference.

Sommer SC-The Square Cable achieves excellent noise rejection by combining it’s 4 cores into pairs, a further development to the method outlined above. This can reduce electromagnetic interference by up to 20dB more than conventional microphone cable. With a helical copper mesh screen and an additional metallised fleece foil, this cable has 100% shielding yet remains flexible and robust.

Sommer SC-Source cable was originally developed for the makers of studio microphones like BPM and Schoeps. It is 100 % shielded by a tight Cu braid and a robust fleece woven around the wire pairs. Cables with comparable electrical values cost almost twice as much with other manufacturers. Due to the fine 0,10 mm Cu wires it is a very popular cable for outdoor transmissions and mobile applications.
