Sound: Used them last night, sound was fine. Feature: Mic cables, what can you say? Ease of Use: N/A Quality: Hey, they are economy cables. They do not appear sturdy enough for heavy-duty use. I used them for my drum mics, which have a fairly low amount of tension. Value: low price - quality proportionate Manufacturer Support: N/A The Wow Factor: N/A Overall: I am overall satisfied with the product.

Quality: This, by far, has to be the worst cable I've ever owned. It is a light gauge cable and the connectors are poorly made. It failed *just outside* the 30 day warranty period. It did come with my mic package (mic, stand, cable), so it was practically for free, which is why I'm not too upset. However, I would have gladly paid more initially for a better quality cable to be included. Even though I have not used this cable in performance, I can definitely say it is not road worthy. I've had cables that had really harsh treatment on the road and outlasted this one by years. Manufacturer Support: I could have pursued this as it was still covered under manufacturers warranty, but decided it wasn't worth it. David @ Zzsounds was helpful and offered me a discount on a different cable. My only disappointment was that I feel a 60 day warranty would be much more useful (which is why I shaved a point off).

Quality: Extremely poor quality. Two of three cables failed in less than 7 months. The wire is flimsy and solder connections are VERY poor. I finally trashed them all.

Sound: The sound is very good. Feature: This is a cable, dosent have any features Ease of Use: Plug and play!!!!! Value: Do it. It's a pretty good cable for this price. If it cost $30, i'd still buy it. Manufacturer Support: I have not needed any support, yet. Overall: I've had it for about 3 month and they held up. My sister can through one day and accidentally tripped on the cord and pull it really far (like about 30 feet!!) and it still works good

Feature: Wire is flimsy weak junk. Plugs don't work in new jacks like the good one's are Switchcraft or Speakon. Don't Waste your time with these. Most times won't even plug in and make connection Ease of Use: If it don't plug in and make connection, then obviously this is useless. Wasted time and money. Quality: CRAP. Value: A HUGE NO!!! The money you spend for product and shipping, and return shipping, You could have bought 3 good ones. Manufacturer Support: Why bother their stuff just don't work with pro gear. The Wow Factor: Don't work, DON'T WANT IT ! Overall: Trashed them first day. Not worth sending back. No one should not be allowed to sell this crap.
