I tried them on my handheld microphones. The best match is the RODE S1. Shure KSM-9 and Neumann KMS 105 do not match.
I have not tried them on my studio microphones yet. So no comment.
I ordered this cable to go with the B-Stock Blue Microphones Woodpecker Active Ribbon mic. Works like a charm, and it's "Kiwi" green color makes it easy to see—even in a darkened home studio.
In another vein, if someone gifts me with a Robbie the Mic Pre on December 25th, I'll have a Blue, Blue Christmas for sure.
When I received these two as a free addition to my purchase of a Rode NT4 Stereo Mic, I thought... "they're so tightly wound in the blister pack it'll take forever to take the curl out". Much to my surprise, these super flexible cables laid out flat immediately (no "pig-tails" to worry about!!). Of course, the audio quality is terrific, too, so I'll be buying more of these as I gradually replace my extensive collection of XLR cables. Thank you FEA for alerting me to these fine beasts (by including them as a free "gift" with my purchase).
I'd never pay full price for these. I worked back in the day as a pro audio tech and have spent hundreds of hours building custom cables for large installs. I think "better sound" from premium cables is hype. That said, I have two of these I got for free with the purchase of two FMR RNCs. Since I have them, I use them and like them. But if I were worried enough about build quality to pay this kind of money per cable, I'd just build them.
I have bought 4 of these over the past 7 years and only had an issue with one cable. I was able to fix the issue with only one end coming loose. Many cables are going to have issues if you use it regularly for on location gigs, constantly tearing down and setting up from place to place over the years. Things wear out evetually, and these cables took a beating. The Blues have held up and got the job done. Cool looking cable that sounds great with gold XLR connectors.
It is the 3rd Kiwi cable I got from frontendaudio, I ordered
by 2009 a pair of FMR Pbc-6a and by 2010 a heil microphone, so I got for each item a free kiwi cable. First of all the quality is awesome and had no interference issues at all. I think they're very usable also because of the green color in a studio environement where usually cables are black. Great value!
I own cables of all flavors. From Mogami down to no-name freebies. I subscribe to the theory that, for the most part, wire is wire and the biggest difference in cables is durability. I do wonder how companies can tout that their cables can "enhance" certain frequencies or that their product is sonically superior. I've never heard a difference from brand new cables like Hosa, Horizon, Livewire etc., when they're running side by side w/ my expensive cables. But I digress....These Kiwi cables seem to be a fairly superior build quality and should last a while. I like the jacket for it's appearance and it's slick sort of feel and FEA has them for a great price.
These are nice cables. The connectors fit securely and are durable. I don't know if I buy all the hype about one cable "sounding" better than another, but these sound fine to me.
These mic cables are very east to work with. The connectors could be better. The cable and craftsmanship is grade A.
