FAQ #673 Updated February 02, 2012


What does a XLR connector look like? I have a microphone cable with a 1/4 plug that goes into the amplifier. The other that goes into the microphone is a female plug, about 1/2 inch in diameter. It has 3 holes in it that receive 3 pins from the microphone. Is this an XLR connector?


Yes. The female XLR has three holes; the male XLR has three pins. It is the standard connector in the professional audio field.
