"I got the wrong cable."
_
"Long cord and actually works on my stereo and it was hard to find a cord that worked for it."

Connection

Connection:
"Apart from the connectivity problem, the jack also doesn't fit through most cell phone cases so you'll need to either get a jack extender or remove your phone case whenever you want to listen to music."
_
"Secondly, the cord broke at the connections within a week and a half."
_
"If I twist the 3.5mm plug then it corrects itself BUT it needs to be positioned at the exact spot, which tells me there is something wrong with the connection cheap."
_
"I think the connecting end is either damaged or not properly made for an easy connection."
_
"this is great for connecting any phone to a sound bar or speaker"
_
"Perfect for connecting the stereo output of my tower computer (that is controlled by a MIDI keyboard and piano soundbanks) to rca jacks on my two speakers."
_
"Good construction and good connections."
_
"worked excellent on my speakers.... Now I have my speakers connected to my TV and I can use them both whenever I want it"
_
"Not so with the Belkin--the stereo stays perfectly quiet as it waits for the connection to the laptop to be made."

"I am very disappointed because I've tried an aux cord before this one that wasn't as durable(the wire pulled away from the connector) and I thought I'd be able to use this one for quite some time."
_
"Apart from the connectivity problem, the jack also doesn't fit through most cell phone cases so you'll need to either get a jack extender or remove your phone case whenever you want to listen to music."
_
"By adjusting the cable coming out of the mini jack I can get the right channel to come in, but I'm very disappointed that this cable is already failing."
_
"I did try fiddling with the jack that goes in the computer and was unable to make it come loose or distort the sound so its well made."

"It's long enough and very durable where the wire meets the connectors."

"Second, the cable construction, including connectors, is nicely done."
_
"good connectors."
_
"I wanted this y cable to use to hook up any audio device that required mini plug to be hooked up to the rca jacks on my vintage Marantz receiver, whats nice is the extra long 12 foot cable so you can be across the room, works great, cheap price, can't really go wrong with this cable."
_
"The connectors fit well, not too tight or loose."
