What kind of cables are these?

I got a big box of these cables at an auction. There are mainly 3 different types, and they are pictured.

Any help With an ID would be great. I know the bottom one and the top are pretty common, but I just cant think of the name

I'm not positive, but those look like cables that you would use for a PA system or something like that. Definatly not your standard audio cable.

Ok, so the top cables, the ones with the bright yellow cord and the long metal ends, look to me like XLR cables. These are usually used hooked up to microphones going to either a DAT recorder (for films) or I'm guessing also to a PA system of some sort. If so, they have three main prongs on the male end in a triangular shape, and they click together where you have to press down on a small button to undo them.

My best guess for the other, which I'm less sure about, is a mono audio cable (1/4 inch) that splits into 8 seperate 1/8 inch mono audio cables. Probably has to do with hooking several components together though I can't say for sure.

Edit: I made that second guess thinking that the smaller cables were coming from the other end of the larger one on the bottom, not sure sure thats the case looking at it again. If not, then it may just be a regular 1/4 inch male to male audio cord, used for high quality headphones or plugging instruments into amps and whatnot, as the cable with the single ends. And the other cable could just be a group of 1/8 " audio cables similar to what cheaper headphones used, grouped together in one cord and color coded so they don't tangle while connecting multiple who-knows-whats together.

yes the bright yellow cord is a triangle pattern and has the realease you are talking about.

I should have given more info on the second set. Both ends of that cable look like that, the third one down in the picture is a standalone cable. Both ends are the single male connector.

thanks for the help

Off to ebay I go.

the top ones are standard XLR cables the middle ones appear to be a standard TRS snake.. (1/4 inch speaker cables) and the bottom looks like a standard TRS speaker cable (1/4 in) but it could be an instrument cable

Actually, I believe both the snake and the other cable are TS, not TRS. (For the non-audio geeks, TS is the type you'd most likely use with consumer equipment, TRS is usually for pro audio gear.)

I'm pretty sure the snake is made by Hosa, which is kind of the cheap crap brand they'll sell you at Guitar Center if they can't get you to spring for Monster Cable. I have two of them in my cubicle at work, they're servicable but not great.

That middle set looks like a TRS set, just bundled for ease of use.

this is pretty much the same setup just in single wire format, The color codeing matches
