Nothing much to say...

It takes a stereo audio signal from a 3.5mm (1/8") and splits them into individual mono signals. One for the right channel (labeled appropriately as "Tip") and one for the left ("Ring").

The build quality as absolutely fantastic for the price. Forget about Monster Cable. These are solid, very well built and work incredibly well for a fraction of the price.

I currently have this connecting my computer to my M-Audio Studiophile AV40s and they're absolutely fantastic.

It costs less than a good sandwich, is longer than most pythons, and works effectively. Used to connect a MacBook Pro to a pair of M-Audio BX5a's. Plug, play, enjoy.

I was having a hard time trying to figure out what kind of cables do I need to connect my laptop to my monitors. Laptop, as you know, generally has a 3.5mm TRS out. My monitors, on the other hand, have a 1/4" TRS input. After researching a bit on the internet, I found these cables. The cable length helps me place my monitors at a decent distance from each other (and I can have them at an elevation too!). These cables are serving the purpose pretty well. I am satisfied with this product.

HOSA is making a real name for themselves in terms of quality low cost well made cable assemblies. This is every bit a professional quality patch cord. I bought it because I recently purchased a pair of amplified speakers from M-audio which feature professional 1/4" TRS inputs (differential) to cut hum and noise from the signal.

The HOSA input is the quietest of all 3 inputs on the speaker system by 6dB. It sounds great, works great, and didn't set me back a fortune.

I own several HOSA TRS/XLR adapters and have never had a problem with them. I would not expect one with this cable set given its construction quality and strain relief on all ends. Don't let the low cost fool ya - there's a good cable set here. And to the commenter who complained it's mono - it is 2 x mono - on any mixing panel that is how stereo inputs are achieved - one signal per channel. HOSA also makes 1/8 to 1/4 STEREO single plug cable sets, but you must look at the picture and read the description to ensure it is exactly the gender and size you want. I know the fustration of having the wrong cable adapter, hence I keep my build your own kit handy when what's in the cable box doesn't do it.

I am using this cable to hook my Ipod or Macbook to my mixer. It works and sounds good. The wire is nice and thick and the connecters feel solid.

The construction quality appears to be good. It was well labeled with Tip and Ring, so I could hook up channels correctly. For this type of cable the Left Channel is the TIP and Right Channel is the Ring. I used this cable to connect my iPod to my Behringer Xenyx 802 Mixer. The quality of the sound was good, I will buy Hosa cables in the future.
