I have a few SM57's that I use at church. Sometimes the cables "wobble" in the end of the mic and it shorts out. The cables that seem to do this came with a package deal through Behringer. My question is this: Is there no industry standard in the diameter of the XLR connectors? OR is it the SM57's that are the problem?

It might be the cables that are the problem, as all of the SM57s that I have ever used have never had this problem. I recommend exchanging the cables for ones with neutrik connectors.
