Custom audio cables

Naiant only ships within the United States, and to Australia, Canada, Israel, and New Zealand.

Naiant products are built by hand upon order.  Please see terms of sale for policies and build time estimates.

All connectors are Neutrik/Rean, Switchcraft, or Binder.

Cable is Mogami, except for Belden quad lavalier.  Coax cable is 75 ohm.  Lavalier cables are 3mm diameter; narrow cables are 4-5mm diameter, standard cables are 6mm or greater.  Mini coax is 3mm diameter; stereo coax is a joined pair of mini coax (2x 3mm diameter).

To order a Y or fanout cable, select two or more of one connector and one of the other.  Y cables not using stereo coax or stereo microphone cable may be joined using TechFlex Flexopet upon request; please specify split length at cable end (25cm is standard).

To order a stereo cable (with dual connectors at each end), select two of each connector.  Recommended cable types for stereo cables are stereo coax or stereo microphone.  Other cable types may be joined using TechFlex Flexopet upon request; please specify split length at each cable end (25cm is standard).  Stereo cables that use a single connector at both ends (such as 3.5mm or 1/4″ cables) are not treated as stereo cables in this order menu.

Multicore cable has up to eight conductors plus shield.  For cables with up to four conductors plus shield, quad cable may be used instead (for example, for a five-pin XLR cable where one pin is ground).

Special output cables for the X-Y microphone, IFA amplifier and IPA amplifier may be configured as noninverting or inverting via pin selection, and may incorporate passive impedance-balancing networks.   Please indicate the desired configuration in the order notes:

XLR-M output cables (select cable as indicated):

  • XLR-3-F to dual inverting XLR-3-M output cable with internal impedance-balancing network to connect the X-Y or X-8S to two XLR input microphone amplifier channels for use with phantom power.  For the X-8S and X-Y, this cable will have signal on pins 3 of the XLR-3-M outputs; pin 3 on the XLR-3-F input connector is routed to the XLR-3-M connector marked with a white ring; pin 2 is routed to the XLR-3-M marked with a red ring.  (select stereo mic cable)
  • XLR-3-F to dual noninverting XLR-3-M output cable with internal impedance-balancing network to connect the IPA to two XLR input microphone amplifier channels for use with phantom power.  For the IPA, this cable will have signal on pins 2 of the XLR-3-M outputs; pin 2 on the XLR-3-F input connector is routed to the XLR-3-M connector marked with a white ring; pin 3 is routed to the XLR-3-M marked with a red ring.  (select stereo mic cable)
  • XLR-3-F to inverting XLR-5-M output cable for the X-Y microphone, with internal impedance-balancing network.  (select quad cable)
  • XLR-3-F to noninverting XLR-5-M output cable for the IPA amplifier, with internal impedance-balancing network.  (select quad cable)
  • XLR-5-F to dual XLR-3-M output cable to connect the X-Y or IPA to two XLR input microphone amplifier channels for use with phantom power.  Pins 2-3 on the XLR-5-F are routed to the XLR-3M marked with a white ring; pins 4-5 are routed to the XLR-3-M marked with a red ring.  (select stereo mic cable)
  • XLR-5-F to quad inverting XLR-3-M output cable with internal impedance-balancing network to connect the X-Y microphone to four XLR input microphone amplifier channels for use with phantom power.  For the X-Y, this cable will have signal on pins 3 of the XLR-3-M outputs; pins 2-5 on the XLR-5-F are routed to the XLR-3-M connectors with white, red, black, and yellow rings, respectively.  (select mic/line narrow cable)
  • XLR-5-F to quad noninverting XLR-3-M output cable with internal impedance-balancing network to connect the IPA to four XLR input microphone amplifier channels for use with phantom power.  For the IPA, this cable will have signal on pins 2 of the XLR-3-M outputs; pins 2-5 on the XLR-5-F are routed to the XLR-3-M connectors with white, red, black, and yellow rings, respectively.  (select mic/line narrow cable)
  • XLR-10-F to quad inverting XLR-3-M output cable for use with the XLR-10-M extension cable, with internal impedance-balancing network to connect the X-Y microphone to four XLR input microphone amplifier channels for use with phantom power.  For the X-Y, this cable will have signal on pins 3 of the XLR-3-M outputs; pins 2-5 on the extension cable’s XLR-5-F are routed to the XLR-3-M connectors with white, red, black, and yellow rings, respectively.  (select mic/line narrow cable)
  • XLR-10-F to quad noninverting XLR-3-M output cable for use with the XLR-10-M extension cable, with internal impedance-balancing network to connect the IPA to four XLR input microphone amplifier channels for use with phantom power.  For the IPA, this cable will have signal on pins 2 of the dual XLR-3-M output; pins 2-5 on the extension cable’s XLR-5-F are routed to the XLR-3-M connectors with white, red, black, and yellow rings, respectively.  (select mic/line narrow cable)
  • XLR-5-F to XLR-10-M four-channel balanced extension cable.  (select multicore cable)

3.5mm miniplug output cables (select stereo coax cable):

  • XLR-3-F to 3.5mm miniplug cable for the X-Y microphone to enable connection to minijack inputs when the X-Y is operating on battery or external power.  For the X-Y, this cable will connect pin 2 (right channel) to ring and pin 3 (left channel) to tip.
  • XLR-3-F to 3.5mm miniplug cable for the IPA amplifier to enable connection to minijack inputs when the IPA is operating on battery or external power.  For the IPA, this cable will connect pin 2 (left channel) to tip and pin 3 (right channel) to ring.
  • XLR-5-F to 3.5mm noninverting miniplug cable for the IPA amplifier to enable connection to minijack inputs when the IPA is operating on battery or external power.  For the IPA, this cable will connect pin 2 (left channel) to tip and pin 4 (right channel) to ring.
  • XLR-5-F to 3.5mm inverting miniplug cable for the X-Y microphone or IPA amplifier to enable connection to minijack inputs when the IPA is operating on battery or external power.  For the X-Y or IPA, this cable will connect pin 3 (left channel) to tip and pin 5 (right channel) to ring.
  • XLR-5-F to dual 3.5mm miniplug cable to enable connection to minijack inputs when a four-channel X-Y or IPA is operating on battery or external power.  Pins 2-3 on the XLR-5-F will be routed to a miniplug with white heatshrink; pins 4-5 will be routed to a miniplug with red heatshrink.
