Figure 3: Connecting via a balanced XLR cable
Use a commercial XLR cable.
The length of the cable does not affect signal quality.
Figure 4: Connecting via an unbalanced cable
To connect the microphone to an unbalanced microphone input (1/4" jack),
use a cable with an XLR connector and a 1/4" TS jack plug.
Unbalanced cables may pick up interference from stray magnetic fields
(nearpower or lighting cables, electric motors, etc.) like an antenna. This may
cause hum or a similar noise if you use a cable that is longer than 5 m (16 feet).
