Sommer Cable - Cicada 4

***Price Is Per Meter***

Maybe the smallest “star quad“ of all times …

Is called SC-CICADA 4 with an outside diameter of merely 3.4mm (0.13 in.). Technically this cable is based on the very successful SC-CICADA SO-D14 variant, but instead of two, it has now four wires arranged in a star shape, yet remains just as flexible and top-performing. In a crossover wiring this version delivers extremely good electrical values, especially when compared to traditional microphone cables. Like the SC-CICADA SOD-14, the SC-CICADA 4 also features a robust, notch-resistant and sweat absorbing PUR Master Blend outerjacket – ideal for wiring up fitness gyms -, a tight spiral shielding with 95 % coverage and also a pre-stranded drain wire which makes cable assembly a lot easier and gives the cable an additional kink protection and a high tensile strength. The SC-CICADA 4 is the perfect microphone cable for use with mini XLR plugs, for fully assigned MIDI and DIN cables or as a compact patch cable. It is recommended e.g. for the internal wiring in racks or audio components, as feed line for clip or ear microphones or also for manufacturing high-grade adapter cables.


  • Super flexible due to fine CU litz construction
  • Easy to handle owing to the extra drain wire (0.22 mm²)
  • Tight spiral screen with 95 % coverage for excellent shielding
  • Durable and notch-resistant due to the sturdy PUR jacket


  • Interior wiring of mixing consoles, racks, and other audio
  • For connecting mini XLRs, mini jacks, fully assigned MIDI and DIN cables
  • Flexible cable for clip-on microphones, earphones, speaker units, etc.
  • Assembly of adapter cable
