Handy cable for your bag – 3.5mm Retractable Stereo Audio Male to Male Data Cable (65CM-Length) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
the cable is compact and it rolls up neat.
You can chuck one in your bag, or pencil case, and always have one with you
Cons:
The flat, thin, non-shielded cable could pickup noise easily from mobile phones, and other EMF around the house. if using it, i recomend keeping it as far away from phones and mains power leads & transformers to reduce the chance of picking up noise
Other:
I work in AV and keep a couple of these in my work bag incase i need one. I'd avoid using it for recording, but with simple playback people are less likely to hear any noise the cable creates
Bottomline:
buy it if you need something to plug your mp3 player into something with 3.5mm inputs
