Borrowed a pair—1M balanced XLRs—quite some time ago, for a weekend.**

Compared them, between DAC and preamp, and between preamp and power amp, to:

— Mogami 2534 microphone cable
— Neotech NEI-3002
— Neotech NEI-3004
— DH Labs Air Matrix
— Audio Sensibility Impact SE

All I remember now is that I was not inspired to replace any of the above with the XLO Ref. 2.

In general, I have found that, with balanced connections, variations between cable have relatively small impact, but with single-ended connections, different cables seem to sound more different than with balanced.

** Test system consisted of: Esoteric P-03 transport/D-03 DAC, Esoteric C-03xP preamp, Technics SP-10mkII turntable/FunkFirm FXR tonearm/Grace F9-MM cartridge with SoundSmith stylus, Meyer Sound Labs powered X-10 monitors with X-400C powered subwoofers.
