USB XLR cable

So I stumbled across this the other day


Has anybody had any experience with these? I need a real basic interface just to get my mic signal to my PC with reasonable quality.

I can't buy this exact cable, as it's only on Thomann, and they'll charge me 10 postage, doubling the price, but are there other similar cables that I can order which will give me a good result?

Waste of money. Any of those cable like things never have any quality.

False economy.

They're very handy but the quality is pretty poor and they can only handle dynamic mics.

Just go on Gumtree/eBay and try and pick up a used USB interface for 30 or so.
