Low quality and often broken – 3.5mm M-M Audio Jack Connection Cable (3M) Reviews

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

Pros:
Cheap. Looks decent. The connectors are okay. Fits decently.
Cons:
The cable is unshielded, and of very low quality. Two of the ones I bought didn't work: one had only one of the pins connected, while the other had two out of three. In both cases the ground had failed, making the cables completely useless. Upon tearing apart the cable I realized that it is unshielded and the copper inside was corroded on some of the conductors, which probably caused it to break.
Other:
Bottomline:
Cheap audio cables are handy, but avoid this particular model as it is particularly bad.
