Product Description

Color: 8 FT Gray

Mediabridge 3.5mm Stereo Audio Cable

Connect & play music from your Smartphone, tablet & MP3 player to a car stereo, portable speaker or other 3.5mm stereo audio output. This cable supports devices containing a standard 3.5mm auxiliary jack, which are commonly associated with headphones/ear buds. Many of today's audio components have this input for easy hookups. Unlike wireless transmitters & cassette adapters, it provides a direct wired connection that's free of static/FM interference. Dual-shielding, polished metal molding & corrosion-resistant gold-plated plugs deliver crisp sounds & minimal signal loss. A compact, beveled step-down design gives a firmly secure connection, even when bulky cases are on your device. You can even charge your devices while in use (separate cable required). You're just a plug-in away from rocking out to your music, listening to a movie or relaxing to an audio-book.

Product Features
- Connects & plays music from 3.5mm-enabled devices to a car stereo/speaker
- Flexible jacket that's ideal for tight spaces
- Dual-shielding, polished metal molding & corrosion-resistant gold-plated plugs
- Beveled step-down design for a secure connection, even with bulky cases like Otterbox

Specifications
- Left connector type: 3.5 mm
- Left connector gender: Male
- Right connector type: 3.5 mm
- Right connector gender: Male

Compatibility
Devices with 3.5mm audio jacks, like a Smartphone (iPhone), tablet (iPad), MP3 player (iPod), car stereo & portable speaker

Plug-&-play: Ready to use, once each end is connected to its respective port on a compatible device

Notes
Audio is transmitted in stereo format, for a surround sound experience

This is a great cable, especially for the price. The materials and build quality are excellent. Some consumers think that thicker cables are better, so manufacturers often encase their cables in a thick coating of cheap plastic insulation designed to make them look like they are higher quality. This usually only makes them heavier and less flexible. Not so with the Mediabridge; this cable is lean and mean. Even though the cable is double-shielded, the insulation isn't overly thick, so it remains lightweight and pliable. The terminations are also very compact.

I'm using it to connect an AirPort Express to a headphone amplifier. Listening through $190 Ultrasone cans (while walking on a treadmill), I can detect no problems with sound quality. I haven't done any elaborate comparison testing, but I can't imagine that there is a cable that would sound significantly better at this price range.

A few other points to consider:

I like the charcoal gray color; it won't start to look dingy like those stupid white cables from other manufacturers.

Also, the 8' length is unusual. Most manufacturers skip from 6' to 12', but this length is just right for my application.

Perhaps the best feature is the stepped-down smaller diameter base of the connectors, which allows it to fully insert into the headphone jack of portable device without removing its case. This makes it perfect for connecting an iPod or smartphone to the auxiliary input of a car stereo.

When I bought this cable, I didn't know what to expect! But, I got it, plugged it into my computer and monitor, and now sound COMES OUT OF THE MONITOR SPEAKERS! It's a cable, it's got a sleek, cable-like design! It's pretty long, I could probably move my tower two feet to the left or right if I wanted! You need a 3.5mm Audio Cable? GET THIS CABLE!

Item: Mediabridge 3.5mm (1/8") Male to 3.5mm (1/8") Male Stereo Audio (Auxiliary) Cable. 8 feet. "Step down" jack design to accommodate handheld device cases.
Purchase date: July 25, 2012
Review date: January 21, 2013

Six months from the date of purchase seems like a long enough period to provide adequate information about how this auxiliary cable has fared. I bought it with a set of Altec Lansing VS2621 computer speakers so I could connect my laptop or iPhone to play music in my apartment.

It looks nice, but the gold plating is poor quality and starts to wear away after a few months of use. The construction of the cable seems stiff enough throughout the body, and I use the standard method of rolling speaker cables to extend its life, but the jacks on either end were not engineered for long term use. After four months of careful use, I experienced the problem of audio only coming through one side of the stereo signal. Moving the cable strategically allowed the other channel to come through again, but this is a sign that the cable has degraded near the jack, where the cable bends as gravity pulls it down. Perhaps L-shaped jacks would have fared better, but I did not expect to see this level of deterioration already beginning in the 4-6 month window.

Every audio jack has plastic spacers that separate each contact (L/R/g) from the other. The spacers used on this particular unit have begun to burn (not sure how else to describe it) from the electric current, leaving black residue on the jacks, and wearing away. This is so advanced on one end of the cable that today a small piece of the spacer ring fell off. I fear it will not last much longer and I am wary of possible damage to my speakers and audio devices because of this defect.

Purchased this to connect my Sony laptop dock to a Samsung TV/monitor and it works great. You can tell it is high quality. I had previous purchase a VGA/3.5mm audio combined cable, but there was a lot of hissing from the speakers because the cables were combined and not shielded well. This cable works great and I highly recommend it!

The remarkable thing about this cable, and why I rated it so highly, is that it's a quality-made cable. We all have plenty of cables for all of today's devices and all of the situations we like to use them in. Most of them are wire with a thin plastic sheath. This cable, however, is one of the good ones like you get with high-end electronics. It has a nice thick sheath that helps the cable flex instead of bend. It's one of those cables that you can pull through the tangle under your desk, and it just slides through the mess instead of contributing to it.
There isn't too much to say about a cable. You plug it in, and it works. I use this cable to connect my smartphone (Motorola Droid Bionic) to a speaker set so I can listen to the music on my phone at work. This cable, as advertised, is specially designed to fit into your headphone jack while the phone case is on, and it does.

Considering that I've never bought anything like this before, I'd have to say that the cable works ok. I use it to connect my laptop to my tv and for that it seems fine. The only drawback is a weird buzzing noise that I sometimes notice when the audio isn't being used. Once I have audio going, the buzzing goes away.
