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?
3.5 mm plug is out of spec (too small) - doesn't work in most devices
Every single "Designed for Mobile 3.5mm" product I have purchased from Monoprice has been out of spec and does not actually work with most 3.5mm (1/8") jacks. "Designed for Mobile 3.5mm" doesn't actually work in most phones I test it in. The device doesn't detect that anything is plugged in, the plug is too small and doesn't engage. On the few devices it does work on, it is barely held by the jack, and any tiny jiggle causes it to disconnect or fall out.
I love the design of this product (other than the previously mentioned incorrect color scheme), if only it actually worked.
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.
