20ft Premium 3.5mm Stereo Male to 3.5mm Stereo Male 22AWG Cable (Gold Plated) - Black
The 3.5mm (1/8") stereo TRS connector is more commonly known as the Headphone Jack on portable mp3 players and mobile phones. This cable features a male 3.5mm stereo (TRS) plug on each end, with molded connector housings and strain relief boots. Each connector is gold-plated to ensure smooth, corrosion-free connections.
The cable is made of heavy-duty coaxial cable for each conductor. The conductors are 22AWG and each conductor is shield to prevent EMI or RFI interference from entering your audio system. The cable is 12mm x 6mm thick, while the connector housings are 41mm long x 15mm diameter.
Because of their size and weight these cables are best suited for more permanent connections, such as from your PC to your sound system. Also, because of the size of the connector head, these are unsuited for use with phone cases and may not fit within the expansion slot cutouts on the back of a PC case. If you want something more suitable for these applications, please try one of our standard 3.5mm audio cables.
PROS: High quality wire
CONS: low quality connector
PROS: Well insulated, well built.
CONS: The ends are a little thick. If your application entails tight spaces at the ends this might not fit.
I knocked off one point because I'm getting some interference on it. I'm not 100% certain it's the cables fault, but when I plug it into my receiver, there's a noticeable buzz sound that happens whether or not the other end is plugged into anything (like my pc). I don't have the cable running over anything electronic, so it's either just picking up stuff in the air, or maybe there's something faulty, or maybe it's the receivers fault.
On top of that, I'm a bit worried the weight of the cable is putting undue stress on the ports. I'm planning to replace this with an optical Toslink cable, and I'll just use it for something else.
I'm a little surprised it's only 22awg wire. I've got 16awg speaker wire running to my speakers, and two of those stacked up (4 wires) is still thinner and more flexible than this cable (they're not shielded, so I guess that makes sense).
PROS: very solid and well made cable
CONS: none, as long as you know what you're getting
PROS: -Heavy duty, extra long connector. Probably will never break (like cheap headphone jacks do).
-Two wires. This is insane. Signal quality is bomb. Great for living room use with multiple PCs and devices.
But it is impressively well made.
