This cable works great, is nice and thick and the male and female ends both snap in nice and snug. I use this on my home theater system with a 1/4" Adapter and the weight of the wire started to bend the adapter a little bit so I would recommend looping it over the top of the receiver or some other way of taking the weight off the plug.
PROS: Very thick cable for low price Good build quality
This is a solid cable. Seriously solid. That became a problem for me. I didn't realize just how thick, and inflexible, this cable would be. I bought it for a friend, who couldn't use it, because it was putting too much strain on the headphone port of her laptop. For certain applications, this is a great cable. It has great connectors, and its a nice heavy gauge cable. Just note how thick the diameter of the cable is, and if you need something flexible or lightweight, this is not the right cable for you. The cable is as heavy as you would expect a heavy gauge cable to be, and that is not very practical if you are using it with an MP3 player or a laptop. I'm not discouraging anyone from buying this cable, but make sure you think about the practical implications of such a big cable before you buy it (this applies to all the different lengths of this cable, because monoprice uses the same thick cabling for most of them).
Pro: These "premium" cables are basically the best 3.5mm cables money can buy. Lucky for us consumers, they don't cost a lot and are the typical high quality I've come to expect from monoprice. These cables are so thick, I use a 3.5mm y cable to stress relief my headphone jack.
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.
