As avaliações de clientes, incluindo as avaliações do produto por estrelas, ajudam os clientes a saberem mais sobre o produto e a decidirem se é o produto certo para eles.
Para calcular a classificação geral por estrelas e o detalhamento percentual por estrelas, não usamos uma média simples. Em vez disso, nosso sistema considera coisas como o quão recente é uma avaliação e se o avaliador comprou o produto na Amazon. As avaliações também são analisadas para verificar a confiabilidade.
I feel cheated by Monoprice. I bought these cables by Monoprice because of their stellar reputation but they are no better then cheap Chinese cables with their overrating anything electronic. These cables are marked 16ga but they are in fact 24ga. The connectors are heavy duty and very well made but when assembled with fake wiring they are worthless. Monoprice why are you still selling these fake cables a year later? I won't ask Amazon for a refund as I rebuilt the 3 cables with real rated Belkin wire.
Anyone who trusts Monoprice after this is falling for a company that has no problem with fake products.
I purchased a pair of these Stage Right XLR cables a few years ago as backups and finally got around to needing them. One of the cables has issues shorting coming right out of the sealed packaging, which isn't a big deal since these kinds of things happen. Luckily, there's a lifetime warranty picture CLEAR AS DAY on the amazon product page for these cables.
I reach out to Amazon over chat - they won't honor it and I need to contact Monoprice directly since it's their warranty.
I reach out to Monoprice directly on their website - they won't honor it because it was fulfilled by Amazon and I need to contact amazon for the warranty replacement.
I reach back out to Amazon and get the same answer as above.
I'm sure now that there's a negative review on their product that there was this one point of contact that I happened to miss and I'm overreacting. Yeah, sure. Create a system that frustrates the buyer into giving up on trying to get a company to follow through on warranty claims and shift blame back on the buyer because they couldn't find a specific email contact for specific Amazon purchases for Monoprice.
No convenient plausible deniability there for Monoprice when they're called out. No, of course not.
Getting a popping and/or hum with some cables so I unscrewed the housing at the end to to check out if there was a short or something. I found that there is no shielding and the shell of the connector isn't grounded at all. There's a solder tab for the shielding, so it looks like QC is at fault here. Took me too long to get around to using this cable so I can't send it back, but I will reach out to Monoprice directly to see what the issue is because I have longer versions of this cable that ARE shielded.
When 48V phantom power isn't running across the line, these cables—a disappointment for Monoprice, an otherwise decent brand for RCA and other consumer interconnects—are picking up either stray RF interference or EM interference, e.g. ground loop hum. My guess is that the ground lead is not properly shield-terminated as is needed for a Mic XLR. Of course with 48V across the two conductor leads the problem goes away, because now the wire has current down it. But when the wire doesn't have current, it acts like an antenna and there's an annoying as hell buzz across the line. The pinouts for balanced XLR I/O are different than for a mic preamp, and we use TRS balanced cabling for the studio monitors, so I can't speak to the usability of these cables as audio interconnects but as mic XLR cables, they're garbage.
Cable is sold as 16 gauge but it measures out to be 20 Gauge (.80 mm conductor diameter vs. 1.3mm diameter for 16 gauge), for sure, using calipers. The cable itself is even labeled incorrectly as 16 gauge; private labeled for Monoprice as Monoprice -10016. This is such a glaring issue that I will suspect anything Monoprice sells. My wire strippers gave me a clue something was up when the 16 gauge setting barely skimmed the plastic jacket!
Monoprice rock bottom prices-now I know why. Fake quality.
