I purchased this cable in July 2013 to use in my car to listen to music on my phone and iPod through the Auxiliary Port. Started out working GREAT, but after a month or so it began to short out. I do understand plugging and unplugging can cause these types of issue. I'm not a cable designer by any means. My suggestion would be make the area around the Gold Plate a little sturdier. That seems to be the area of the short in the cable. For the price, I will be ordering another one.

6ft Designed for Mobile 3.5mm Stereo Male to 3.5mm
Bought this to replace a cord between MP3 player and headphones. The cord wasn't flexible enough and failed after only a couple weeks of use. Solidly constructed, but not really suitable for mobile devices.
PROS: Well made, solid construction
CONS: Did not hold up very long when used to connect headphones to an MP3 player. Cord is not flexible enough.
Thank you for your review and sorry to hear of the issues you have experienced with PID 9765. If I may ask did the cable completely tear from the connector head or is it fraying? If you would like I can set up an RMA for a replacement. Just let me know and I can get that taken care of. I hope this helps!

Connectors don't seat securely in my phone
As a bunch of other people have noted, the connectors on this cable don't seat properly in my phone. a Samsung Galaxy S5. As a result, the cable keeps comings loose, especially since I'm using it in a car, making it unusable as the audio keeps cutting out. I thought maybe I just happened to have a bad set of connectors, so I sent a request to customer support, but now that I see so many others complaining of the same issue I'm guessing that it is just the way the cable is.
I use this with an ipod nano 5th gen, and with the ipod charger in I can barely fit this plug into the jack. The connector housing is wider than some I've used in the past (wider than I imagined based on the picture). It worries me to be putting pressure on the headphone and charger jacks.
However, the cable still works great. This issue is only for nano users (and maybe not even all nanos). However, if you have an aftermarket ipod nano charger that is fatter than the stock, it DEFINITELY won't fit at the same time as this cable.
PROS: Looks great, it works just like it should. Awesome service and price, of course.
I bought this for my IPhone 5s with Otter case to use in my cars and allow me more flexibility in mounting my phone cradle. Mono price cables work and look great. The cables are flexible but durable. And made with attractive connectors that fit my phone and case perfectly. The next time I have to replace an Apple charger/sync cable that appears to have weak points and short life expectancies, I will go to Monoprice for less.
PROS: Great cable, quality, price, service and function.
