    Don't buy Monster cables there a complete waste of money.

    Look for something with Neutrik XLRs on the ends and a high grade cable, i'd recommend Van Damme or similar.

    If you need a few it would be worth buying a spool of cable and some XLR plugs and sockets and making your own.

    Neutrik, Digiflex are the classic. There's several class of Digiflex one, all good.

    Choose a decent one and always have a spare instead of only one twice++ time the price.

    XLR to XLR are automatically balanced UNLESS specified.

    Anything with neutrik connectors.

    XLRs are more or less XLRs.

    I would just buy monoprice.

    Not strictly true, what you would usually call a XLR is just a three pin connection. It carries balanced, unbalanced, stereo, or whatever you want it to carry.

    As long as the three cores are separate (and it would be a pretty shoddy XLR 3 cable if they weren't) it will of course carry a balanced signal, but the fact it is balanced is a property of the generating equipment, not the cable.

    I know, I just wanted to stay away of the "technical" details.
