Literally orders of magnitude better than big box retail cables and without the insane markup. Gold plated and the metal jackets are solid so you can insert / remove them without pulling in the cable. A+
I specifically purchased this cable because I needed audio cable for my cell phone (Galaxy S8). I purchase a few of varying lengths and was highly disappointed. 2 of the 3 did fit snugly into the phone's headphone jack. I had to hold the cable in the jack and even then the cable barely worked. Other cables I have used didn't have the same issue. After reading other reviews, It seems like this particular item is a dud. I am a big fan of Monoprice but this item seems to be fail!
