Took one apart, and found a high quality center conductor, appearing to be 26 gauge with 19 strands. The strain relief seems more than adequate, and a cable I tested withstands a tremendous amount of pulling force and strain.
The cables are clearly hand-soldered, so there's a chance of operator error prior to the overmolding process. I'd guess from the use of hand soldering that placement into the mold is also manual, which presents another opportunity for damage.
FWIW, the shielding is sparse -- I'd say no more than 70% coverage -- so there might be some EMI radiation that could get picked up by other gear in the vicinity. This also means they shouldn't be used as analog cables.
I recommend stressing them mechanically while monitoring conductivity before sending them out into the field.

So after spending way north of a thousand pounds on expensive USB cables and a USB re-clocker and not getting any satisfaction (it got rid of the hum and clicking but at the expense of substantially reduced audio quality) I decided to try a different route.
First I tried optical toslink (Audioquest Forest) which sounded better but still didn't sound as good as I wanted (maybe because it wasn't a top end cable). So after a bit of research coaxial SPDIF seemed the best route to go. I thought I would buy a cheap Amazon basics to test this out and if it worked I would then splash on on a high-end coaxial SPDIF cable.
I had to buy a USB to SPDIF converter (Schiit Eitr) as my Mac didn't have a coaxial output. I connected the Amazon Basics cable into it and the other end into my DAC.
Way to go! Immediately I could hear a substantial improvement in the music quality. Now I can just enjoy the music everything sounds more natural and organic. With the USB setup I was too conscious of the imperfections in the sound.
This cheap Amazons Basic coaxial cable performs seriously better than my expensive USB setup.
I now I going to splash out on an expensive Coaxial cable! I may even splash out on a wireless streamer!
At this price it's not worth returning, but this is just to warn others to be careful if you buy this - don't force it at all or you may damage your device.
I don't find this cable lacking in any way.
I'm what I call a 'budget audiophile'. I buy things as good as I can for as little as I can. Mostly older, decent gear.
A true audiophile with thousands worth of equipment may be able to tell you what's wrong with this cable ....
... But I can't.
