Male ends too small for normal Female devices.
on July 7, 2014
The cable itself is fine, transmits signal just fine. The plugs however seem to be undersized and not true industry specs. The 3.5mm TRS plug simply falls into any hole I put it into (hot dog down a hallway) with no definitive click or tactile feedback that it is seated. the 1/4" TS plugs are a little better but are also loose in there respective sockets and can become scratchy if bumped. I only have the 2 monitors to use the 1/4" TS plugs in but I did test the 3.5mm TRS plug in everything I could and its the same loose feeling. My Kicker ear buds have a positive click and snap into all the same plugs and so does my super cheap 3.5 to 3.5mm male to male cord so its not my ports being loose it is this guy being too small to be adequate.
I primarily got this to hook a pair of studio monitors to my PC and while it does work I have to constantly check the 3.5mm end, and every so often it needs to be inserted all the way again because it has slid out.
