The connection is far more secure to my laptop or phone than a similar product I bought on Amazon. I was running sound for a VIP event and didn't want to risk the sound cutting or scratching because of a loose connection (like has happened with my other product) so I bought this and it did the trick. Added bonus is that it's stereo.
Exactly what I needed to feed signal from phone/ipod/etc into mixer board
I'm was trained on a mixing board, but by no means am a master, etc... but after looking at my setup needs this cable was exactly what I needed. (bought a few so that I had 1x for each potential source & some extras(Not that I expected to need them, but 'just in case', and every cable was tested upon arrival as working perfectly.))
The length is obviously a choice based on your needs, but the devices were directly next to my mixing board... so the 3ft length was perfect so as to both reach and to not have 'cable clutter'
Plus the price is so cheap compared to what you would pay at a local store, that I just bought a couple extra upfront, "in case", but after over a year, not a single cable has shown any issues.
So I highly recommend this cable if you need to send signal from phone/etc. to board/equipment.
