Very good quality cable
6 November 2011
I bought a cheap 1.5m extension cord on eBay and it didn't fit into my computer audio port very well, nor did my headphone jack fit into the socket without some force. When either connection was turned, the audio would crackle or drop a channel. I thought I'd fixed it but on certain louder tracks, the noise would show up again. Not much point owning Sennheiser headphones and getting a piece of junk cable to connect to the source. I opted for this cable mostly based on the review that said about the connectors fitting well.
I found the cable to fit very well and the connectors all join up very easily without force. I don't get any noise on the line even if I try turning the connections. The cable is thick so not prone to twisting and overall feels like a very solid product. It was only £4 or so more than the eBay cable so it's not worth getting the cheap rubbish as you just end up paying all over again.
The reason I will give it 4 stars and not 5 is solely based on the width of the connectors. At their widest point, they look like they are over 4x the width of a 3.5mm plug. My Sennheiser headphone plug by contrast is only 1.5x. This is important if your heaphone jack and mic jack are quite close together as you may not be able to fit both in at the same time but it will of course depend on how thick the mic plug is.
