To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The packaging says lifetime warranty but honestly for the price, I was happy enough to just buy another one and save us both the hassle. my first one lasted around 3 years before cutting out sound on one side. my second one is 2 years old and still going strong without issues.
I use it more or less every day and it moves around as it's in my car.
This review is for the 3.5mm to 3.5mm stereo cable. There are a whole mix of reviews for other cables including usb cables here also. I bought this cable to connect my iPod to my portable speaker. It is nice and short at just under 30cm so there are no tangled wires or cable ties needed. The plastics feel good quality and the jacks are nicely moulded. Strain relief is moulded into the plastic at the ends of the cable. The jacks are gold coloured but at this price point I doubt they have any actual gold metal in them. The sound quality seems absolutely fine.
This is a useful, well made, good quality little cable that is perfect where you want to attach a phone or iPod to a speaker without miles of cable between. It is excellent value for the price.
I use this cable for connecting my Nexus 5 to the aux input in my car, being slim it allows me to connect it without having to take the case off of my phone which was really annoying with my other cable. The length is the right for allowing me to hold and select songs or podcasts (when not driving) without feeling restricted. The cable has fallen on the floor a few times and had some rougher treatment and it is still working fine. It's not fancy and what you would expect but overall it's good value for money in comparison to others and well built, for the price I can't not recommend.
How can a manufacturer / supplier sell this quality of connector cable at this price. Item looks well made with good materials and fits firmly into sockets when plugged in. Very good item for the price paid, I now only buy this type of cable from StarTech and have about 8 and have used them for well over a year without any problems at all. Would highly recommend these items.
I bought this for my car as I was using a long headphone cable that I had to wrap around the gear stick to shorten. This one is the perfect lengthfor use in the car. No crackles or twisting to get the right sound. Good for the car butnote this is not the right length for headphone use though - if this is your reason for buying.
I needed a right-angle aux cable to overcome a design 'feature' with a 2009 Fiesta, where Ford in their infinite wisdom put the aux input right below the handbrake lever, ensuring that every time I stop at the lights I would yank a standard 3.5mm cable out. This solves the issue perfectly. Five stars.
