This is an amazing aux cord for the price! I've bought many at double or triple the price that can't match the quality and performance of this aux cord. Only suggestion for improvement is the rubber on the end connector. It is too wide and wouldn't connect to my iPhone in an OtterBox Defender. I was able to modify it by carefully cutting the first level of black rubber, which reveals a smaller white plastic around the plug, and it fit perfectly into my OtterBox! Thank you for a great product!
PROS: Great sound separation, Amazing clarity, No noise or feedback
CONS: End connector needs to be modified to connect through an Otterbox
The thickness of these cables is not done justice by the pictures, but the sound quality more than makes up for it. Plus you'll get a laugh from anyone who sees you using this. I have this set up as an AUX out cable to my iPhone in my car and I can tell you that this cable makes for a noticeably better sound than thinner ones. There's no background alternator whine or distortion. They're nothing short of perfect. Just get them already.
Great for components THAT DON'T MOVE. Not recommended for mobile devices that will be moved about.
These are great quality and price. I found they work best for devices that will not be moving at all.
For me, I use the RCA-3.5mm/female cord to plug into a 3.5mm/male/male cord to plug my DVD player into my large Fluance Fi50 bluetooth stereo speaker auxillary port so I can play CD's on my bluetooth stereo. It works great for that application, the cord and dvd player never move at all.
It doesent work as well with mobile/small devices, or even laptop, because these get moved and it (generally) can cause sound to drop in and out from the connector moving.
I originally purchased one of these in 2011. When I sold my car I forgot to remove it and ended up buying another one. This thing can take a beating (and has been put in the washer by accident) and it still works.
PROS: Awesome shielding. Super thick. Doubt it will ever break.
CONS: Super thick connectors make it very hard to plug into many modern tablets/ ipods/ etc. If your phone or device has a case this will not plug in about 90% of the time without case removal. Doesn't flex as much as I would like sometimes.
After reading all the reviews, I took a chance on these for my car.
They are PERFECT for that application.
Prior to these, I had gone through 4 or 5 regular 3.5mm audio cables... From the junky retractables, all the way up to "premium" ones from The Source at almost $20 a pop in Canada. None of the others lasted more than 6 months before failing or coming apart.
I have been using this one cable for well over 2 years now with NO visible wear at all. I use it in the car stereo AUX input (left in permanently) and connect it to my MP3 player and occasionally my phone multiple times every single day. I've never found another cable able take this kind of heavy use day in, day out with no effect.
Yes the heads are big, but if you can fit them to your device, there really is no better cable anywhere!
I bought several lengths to try in my car, but after starting with the 3ft version, I have yet to remove it heh heh heh. I wouldn't be surprised if this cable lasts longer than my car does )
