Connector

Connector:
"I unscrewed the end hoping it would be an easy fix, but it turned out the issue was about 3 inches down the cable (determined by wiggling the cable 1cm at a time), rather than the connector itself, and there is no obvious external damage."

"No issue with sound quality degradation with this connector"
_
"Just beware of the heavy input output jacks."

_
"The male connector is a bit longer than average, so it's perfect for a device with an inset audio port or inside of a protective case."

"A well made robust cable with metal gold plated connectors."

Headphone

Headphone:
"Bought two, used one and it is dead in a couple of weeks use as a headphone extension."
_
"The only problem was finding a headphone extension cord with a male end that was skinny enough to fit all the way into my Kindle with the Kindle case on."
_
"Makes you wonder if Radioshack builds their cables terribly intentionally, as you couldn't just plug in your headphones but instead had to spend 5 minutes trying to position the plug exactly right."
_
"I read some reviews that stated this would be hard to plug my headphones into, but there were enough good reviews that I'd try it anyway."
_
"I needed to extend my headphone cable to be able to get to a hard to reach jack on a computer."
_
"Works great with my headphones."

Metal

Metal:
"The most annoying problem are the metal sleeves that cover where the wire and the ends meet."
_
"While there is no noticeable sound degradation, I am now extra careful to hold the metal end when plugging my headphones in and out."
_
"(Headphones, external speakers, what-have-you) Some of the weight being on the metal end pieces that aren't attached very well, these simply being screwed on - not very well, either; every week or so I have to tighten them up to keep them from slipping off."
_
"Aesthetically these also fall short; the metal barrels on both ends easily unscrew on their own accord, and the feel of the metal does not invoke confidence of quality."
_
"A well made robust cable with metal gold plated connectors."
_
"Good quality, nice metal tips, don't see any problems in the future"
_
"Nice metal connectors, good length."
_
"Nice thick cable Solid metal connectors"
_
"This cable is actually pretty good the only flaw was the loosening of the metal end it if you tighten it real tight you should be fine other than that it works really well considering the low price I paid for it"

Plug

Plug:
"Not sure whether I like the metallic connectors, it may be that it helps with the shielding, but when I plug it into the back of my computer I worried that it might contact something else and cause a problem."
_
"After a month you have to mobe the plug to listen, not good"
_
"Makes you wonder if Radioshack builds their cables terribly intentionally, as you couldn't just plug in your headphones but instead had to spend 5 minutes trying to position the plug exactly right."
_
"If you can manage to pull the plug out ever so slightly, this problem is fixed."
_
"It's incredibly difficult to plug headphones into the female end, and once you do plug them in the sound quality is terrible."
_
"I read some reviews that stated this would be hard to plug my headphones into, but there were enough good reviews that I'd try it anyway."
_
"Perfect length so I can plug my laptop into my stereo without having to relocate my laptop! "
_
"The only flaw with these cables is the ends seem to become loose very easily but if your purpose is to plug them in and forget about them it won't be an issue."
_
"Good cable but had to buy a adapter to plug into audio 1-4"
_
"It connects well to my source and does not seem to have any crackle to it when the plug is pushed on like some other extension cables I have owned so it seems to make solid connection for uninterrupted sound."
_
"They are solidly constructed, the plugs are tight and accurate."
