Inadequate Design – Gold Plated 6.35mm Male to 3.5mm Female Microphone Convertor Plug Reviews

posted by jihmmie on 03/21/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
It is very shiny and nicely finished but I am doubtful of the "Gold Plated" connectivity. The outer build feels secure. The left, right, and ground segments are well secured together.
Cons:
Very light, almost feels like "Gold-Plated Plastic"

The female (3.5mm) connection is not secure. The internal connection design actually pushes it against the mini-plug and will bend it to an angle.

Not only is this troublesome for broken signals, it just looks plain odd.
Other:
If a more sturdy-designed solid metal one (not thin metal plating) were available for double or tripple the price I would want those, these I won't end up using for anything as I originally intended.
Bottomline:
Inadequate quality.

If you want something that has a super shiny finish, light build quality, and an insecure mini-plug connection then get it! If you need quality then don't.
