This is the second time (out of 4 times ordering these cables) that I've gotten something that kept falling out of my device and had bad wiring. Once upon a time these cables would last 6 months. This one didn't even last a day

I have tried connecting three different 3.5mm stereo male jacks (two male-to-male 3.5mm stereo cables and one 3.5mm headphone jack) into both of the female connectors, and all connections were inconsistent on both of the product's female ports. Even a slight movement of the cable, like what you would expect while wearing a pair of headphones, results in the audio connection going in and out repeatedly, with buzzing and popping.
I have since used my stereo cables and headphones with another adapter (the kind that features no extension) without issues, so process of elimination points to the Monoprice product causing the problems. I think the problem results from the product's female jacks not firmly securing the male jacks I'm not sure if it's due to a design defect or simply a manufacturing defect.
Normally, I'm very happy with Monoprice cables. I've never had an issue in the past, but this adapter is a finicky dud.
PROS: Seems solidly built
Materials appear of high quality given the low cost
CONS: Bulky, heavy, and not very flexible... so it won't work well for portable applications
Work flawlessly to split the audio from my PC out to two separate sets of AL251 speakers w powered subs. Why two sets of speakers? More sound is more better right? Actually it started out as a curiosity. Could it be done & if so how would it sound? Especially considering these speakers are a decade old. This cable certainly did its job. The output was transmitted flawlessly. Movies, music, games, everything of course some of the credit goes to the speakers. But they only sound good if they receive quality signals. These cables deliver! I will undoubtedly purchase more cables for my home theater.
