Does the job, but a little thin / cheap. – Gold Plated 3.5mm M-M Audio Jack Connection Cable (19CM) Reviews

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

Pros:
Can't beat the price, perfect for my iPod-car connection (shorter cable means I don't have to coil or bunch up excess cord in the storage area.
Cons:
Very apparent that the wire is thinner gauge than normal and/or the plastic covering is thinner or softer than normal. I can imagine it breaking internally and becoming intermittent with excess movement, yanking or strain. I've had mine over 6 months and it's always been fine, however.
Other:
Bottomline:
For the money, it's worth the price unless it's going to be used where there will be a lot of potential strain on the cord. I expect it would break with 3-5 lbs of tug. If you're gentle or even NORMAL with it, you'll be fine. I've accidentally tugged my cable few times and had no problems.
