2.5ft Retractable 3.5mm Audio Cable - Black

This handy, retractable 3.5 mm headphone patch cord is an ideal addition to your car audio system, allowing you to plug your mp3 player or smartphone into your car stereo's auxiliary input jack. The cable can extend to about 2.5 ft in length, enough to reach from your center console to your stereo without leaving a lot of loose cable laying about. The plugs are gold-plated to ensure smooth, corrosion free connections every time.

Cheap option, retractability is finicky

Pros: About the cheapest space efficient audio cable.

Cons: Cord retraction is finicky.

Works fine as an audio cable. Relatively thin so I don't expect it to last particularly long, but that's to be expected at ~$1. Retracting the cord can be a bit finicky at times, but that's a minor complaint.

Great idea for minimalizing cable mess

Pros: Small, tidy, good for people who want to minimize cable clutter

Cons: Durability

Bought about 6 of these 4-5 years ago. At the time, they were great because they functioned to lessen the cable clutter when not in use. The cable is thin but I didn't notice much of a quality decrease, if any. Be sure not to retract it too quickly as it can sometimes get snagged on itself. Retract it by pulling on both ends until you hear a subtle clicking noise and then let it reel itself in. Durability is up in the air because some have only lasted a few weeks, while some still work for years. If you're thinking about this, just get a few since they are so cheap.

I use them everywhere and all the time

I have purchased loads of these over the years. I use them in our cars to connect iPods, connecting to house speakers. I carry them when I travel (again, mostly to connect my iPod to the rental car). They fail from time to time, but they are inexpensive and very compact, so it works well for my uses.

good but wish it was longer

Pros: cheap and works fine

Cons: a little too short
the retractor mechanism can shift to one side so the other end of the cable won't retract fully until you pull the mechanism back

I use it to connect an iPad to a car stereo that lacks Bluetooth streaming and it works fine for that. However I wish there was a longer cable available since 2.5ft is just barely long enough.
