6ft Premium 3.5mm Stereo Male to 3.5mm Stereo Female 22AWG Extension Cable (Gold Plated) - Black
25ft Premium 3.5mm Stereo Male to 3.5mm Stereo Female 22AWG Extension 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 one end and a female 3.5mm stereo jack on the other end, each 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. If you want something more suitable for portable applications, please try one of our standard 3.5mm audio cables.
PROS: This cable looks serious. I did not realize when I bought it. It no joke seems to be two RCA/RG-6 cables size side by side in this cable. I bought it to use for working out on a treadmill, a bit too large for the application, but that is my issue. It clearly says in the description "more for permanent" use. Could be good or bad, just something to watch for.
CONS: Some people claim an ill fitting connection, I did not have this issue. However, my audio sounded awful. If I directly plugged into my receiver, the ear buds sounded great at volume 30. If I plugged in this extension (with a solid feeling connections on both ends), I could hear ZERO voice even turned up to 50 and some muffled audio and soft background noise. It was strange. Not sure what happened here, cable looked and felt good, must have been an internal issue.
I'm not just comparing these cables to other cables or other audio products. This is one of those rare companies or any kind that make something that is of such high quality that it vastly surpasses the needs and expectations of the buyer. Most cables are cheap junk. I never expected to find any that weren't. Instead, these are magnificently well made, solid, beyond any cable I have ever seen. I wanted to tell everyone. My highest praise is that this company joins the ranks of Spyderco knives and Wahl clippers as American companies that simply make a product that is the most well designed, best one can get, and will last forever. I was just stunned that a simple mini plug audio cable would be like this. I go to monoprice for any product they make, surely all cables, in the future.
Hm, my review sounds about like all the other reviews I read when picking them.
PROS: The most heavy duty, well made cable ever seen. Rating should be 20.
Solid, bullet proof, will never go bad.

The description for these cables says "they are not as well suited for small portable applications where lightweight and high flexibility are desired", and that is absolutely the case, especially due to the large connectors. However, if you need a long cable for a stationary purpose and you're worried about either longevity or interference, you should definitely choose premium over regular.
PROS: Heavy duty construction, separately shielded left and right channels, gold contacts, cheap!
CONS: Too thick for some applications
PROS: The cable is as described and is high quality !
Note that if you connect it to 1/8 ministereo jacks that it may not allow others to fit as the connector is over sized and may not allow it. This is relevant to people using it for computer soundcards that have many connectors next to each other.
This cable is super tick and exactly what I needed as using if for a boom mic I wanted to ensure that it would last. Great price, great product.
PROS: Heavy duty, nice length, gold plated, no audio degradation.
CONS: If any, almost too thick. Better safe than sorry though.
Con: These cables are VERY thick and not very malleable. Probably not the best cable to use with an ipod or portable media device. For fixed position devices such as pc's look no further.
PROS: Well-made, well-shielded, no degradation in sound quality
CONS: It is thick
