I'm looking for redundant conductors from the plug end... are there two sets of conductors going from the plug into into the splitter, one set for each branch, or is there an electrical junction in the splitter that joins one conductor set to both jacks? In other words, are the conductor sets electrically and physically joined at the plug or at the black plastic splitter?
I didn't get it in the package with the rest of my order, so I can't give it above 1 star, unfortunately. I've contacted the website about the issue and hope to hear from them soon about getting one of these sent.
I really don't know how this sort of oversight happened, but the plugs are labelled backwards. Red is the left channel and white is the right. So you have to plug them in backwards or all your sounds will be flipped. Kind of an unbelievable mistake, but it it's true.
Also, one of my cables seems to doesn't seem to work sometimes, so the quality isn't great either.
Likely fine most of the time, but mine came with the L/R wired backwards and not shielded well for use from my computer. Bought another higher-end cable and it worked fine (L/R correct & static issue was gone).
These y cables are perfect for carrying audio from computers to receivers. I got a few extra, just because I find that I need them in all sorts of odd times. They are really well built and so much better than the old RadioShack versions we used to buy.
I bought this thing because I wanted to hear the music and sounds of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on my sound system and not my crappy TV speakers. I also wanted to be able to plug my phone in and listen to music on the same system. My receiver is so old that it has modes for VCR and Tape, so it obviously doesn't have any HDMI ports to run through. I thought by getting this that those problems would be solved.
What actually happened was that plugging it into my Nintendo Switch's headphone jack caused my whole sound system to buzz regardless of what mode the receiver was set to. Plugging it into my phone was also a miss because the end keeps popping out of the jack with the slightest movement. Plugging it into my TV's headphone jack somewhat works, but I'm sure there's quality loss going from Switch to TV to sound system.
PROS: Looks nice, cheap.
CONS: Incompatible with something dealing with the Nintendo Switch, awful 3.5mm end can't stay in phone.
