It depends. The two shields must be electrically isolated. Otherwise, the floated shield will not function properly.
Agree, that is why in my first post I also suggested to "Test continuity before you try and use them."
However, I was just guessing since I have not encountered cable with two shields before, which is why the best approach would be to "find out from the manufacturer how they intended for them to be connected."

I contacted Viablue and got a prompt reply. Seems I wired things correctly. I was supposed to cut out the foil and wired pins 1. Grounding, 2. White, 3 Black. I tested continuity and also short between pins and we īre ok no shorts. All seems fine.
What has me intrigued is when I use my older Ultimate cables the volume of the music rise with respect to my Via blue XLR. Could it be they are too thick and thus there is an increase in resistance?
