      XLR Cables & Microphone Cables

      At Markertek, we carry some of the best XLR cables for recording, broadcasting, and amplifying audio. Whether you're tracking vocals for a news show or recording a new rock album, we offer XLR cables that span as long as 300 feet. We're proud to carry microphone cables from esteemed brands like Whirlwind, Canare, and Mogami.

      What does the XLR stand for?

      Short for "Cannon X Series Latch Rubber", the original XLR cable was developed by Cannon Electric in Los Angeles. Initially, the cable did not have a latching mechanism or synthetic rubber insulation, so it was known as the Cannon X Series. In 1950, Cannon Electric added the latch ("Cannon XL"), and by 1955, the female connectors were updated with rubber ("Cannon XLR"). Most XLR cables are designed with a 3-pin connector, but four- to seven- pin designs also exist for specialty applications.
