What Are Unbalanced Audio Cables?

- Jun 07, 2018-

Traditional unbalanced cables use two lines to transmit the audio signal - a hot line which carries the signal and an earth line. This is all that is required to transmit audio and is common in short cables (where noise is less of a problem) and less professional applications.


Note: Internal componentry (in sound mixers etc) is also unbalanced.
