These Pure OFC cables are of excellent quality! This one is the best built 3.5mm jack extension cable I've ever seen (owned about 5 in my time). Using my vernier caliper to take measurements I shall list below how this differs from other cheaper cables.
On all other similar cables like this;
insulation is 3mm in diameter
Socket is 10mm in diamter
With this cable;
Insulation is 4mm in diameter = 33% thicker
Socket is 12mm in diameter = 20% thicker
So it looks as durable as it feels - the rubber feels slightly softer than other cables and hence less prone to stress related tears particularly at the tensioners. The cable tensioners (slotted section where cable meets socket/plug) seem wider in diameter. Overall this is a superb cable. I also own the Pure OFC 3.5mm jack to twin RCA cable by Kenable - its 2 years old, has been heavily used and still works very well.
