You get what you pay for...READ before deciding to purchase
on March 12, 2012
I received this in the non-retail packaging (see pics of other reviewers, was not an option, just ordered as usual).
Amazon should be ashamed for using this vendor as the cable is very cheap & was probably a returned item but since it was not sealed, I really have no idea.
Main issue - the cable is not sheilded well, so it is noisy. If I twist the 3.5mm plug then it corrects itself BUT it needs to be positioned at the exact spot, which tells me there is something wrong with the connection/cheap. From past experience with cables, this is the area where most of my old cables break sown so if you don't have problems now, you will later.
I'm writing this review just to let people know if you are deciding between this & the more expensive one (like I did), pay a few more bucks and get the more expensive one as this will save you a lot of time/headache. Since this was only a few bucks, most people will probably just not go through the hassle of returning the item. Hope that makes sense & is helpful.
