XLR Wiring - Shield to connector shell?

Recommended Posts

Or is this unnecessary since Pin 1 is generally tied to the chassis on the mic anyway?


I'm of the understanding that in some applications it's necessary (a requirement) for the shells of XLR cabling to be grounded. If this is the case, then cabling should be used which is constructed with a seperate insulated shell grounding conductor. Strapping the D ring to pin 1 is a common practice, but to my understanding, it's not the correct method for grounding the shell.
