Audio

Audio:
"Audio quality: Well, honestly I can't give you a great amount of detail here as it's hard to pinpoint audio details on a mid-range stereo in a car."

_
"I could find nothing to complain about with the audio quality."
_
"I bought a different brand audio cable and the sound was horrible."
_
"The issue that I had however was that with my iPhone 5s, I had a New Trent Alixo Case installed, which wrapped entirely around the front, back, and sides, with protection, and when trying to plug in the Anker cable into the open audio port after removing the cover flap, I was unable to push it in entirely to make a sealed connection."
_
"This is a common point of failure for any audio cable as this is where the greatest amount of cable stress happens."
_

_
"Don't be fooled by the price this is the best audio cable that I have used."

Bluetooth:

_
"Clean and clear sound is great with my Bose bluetooth speaker attatched to my Dell monitor Via Aux."

_
"Will be picking up an extra cable for each of my vehicles and my office as an actual auxiliary connection beats bluetooth in both ease of use and audio quality every time."
_
"For many things Bluetooth is the best thing since sliced bread."

Connection

Connection:
"When my phone is charging and the aux cable is connected, I hear this annoying feedback."

"But I have found the wireless connectivity to not always be 100% reliable."
_
"I have yet to have any connection problems with it."
_
"The issue that I had however was that with my iPhone 5s, I had a New Trent Alixo Case installed, which wrapped entirely around the front, back, and sides, with protection, and when trying to plug in the Anker cable into the open audio port after removing the cover flap, I was unable to push it in entirely to make a sealed connection."
_
"The ends of the plugs have an awesome metal grip at the end of each side to provide a place to hold on to when plugging and unplugging the cable, as well as providing a serious amount of bend protection at the weak point of the cable where the connection is from wire to plug."
_
"Thin at connections, so good for phone cases."
_
"It works very well for connecting my phone with other things for music."

Connector

Connector:
"I would be more worried about the jack on my phone going bad before this cord will."
_
"In this case, the greatest improvement in sound is probably the high resistance to shorts caused by weak jacks or strain relief."
_
"I have bought a few auxiliary cables in my time to use within my cars audio system, link into external stereo systems, as well as using docks which contained 30pin adapter and no longer compatible with lightning connector."
_
"As most know when using an audio cable or any cable that has a connector at the end, one of the first things to usually go wrong is the cable gets damaged at the point where it goes into the connector."
_
"It's happened to me with charging cables and all other various cables, when they get pulled hard it sometimes damages the connectors, that is not a concern here."
_
"The only thing this cable appears to lack is a watertight connection between the cable itself and the connector housing, though I could be wrong on that."
_
"These cables are made very well, and the jacks are strong and look like they'll hold up well."
_
"The barrel of the connector is narrow so I have not had any problems fitting it into the few cases I've tried."
_
"With movement stiffer cables short out the cheap jack fairly easily, the Anker does not seem to have much of a problem with this, leading me to think the more flexible Anker might be putting less stress at the connection."
_
"Best 3.5mm audio jack you can buy for this money can't get better value for this price comparable to audiophile jacks that sell for far more."
_
"This one is nice quality cable with a durable cord and metal connector heads and such."

_
"Great AUX cord, this one seems to be very durable and stays put once you plug it in."
_
"I love that it works, that it feels durable, and that it was shipped so quickly! "

Fit

Fit:
"Unfortunately, the casing around each end did not fit my headphones (the input type was correct; the casing was just too big), which was the reason I bought them."
_
"Also fits into my IPhone WITH the case on which is a huge bonus for me as that has been hard to find."
_
"It still doesn't fit as good as the Skull Candy cable I had laying around for the application I originally wanted it for though."
_
"Fits beats by dre unfortunately, I wanted to trash the poorly designed cheaply made plastic dre."
_
"My previous phone case had a smaller opening and I'm pretty sure this lift would not have fit inside and I therefore would not have been able to get a snug connection."
_
"The barrel of the connector is narrow so I have not had any problems fitting it into the few cases I've tried."
_
"It fits well in an Otterbox Defender case for iPhone."
_
"Love it it works great, fits perfectly into the aux plug in with my iphone case on."
_
"Looks really nice and fits into phone with the phone case on, but I have to plug and unplug it several times before my phone can actually recognize it and play over the car speakers."
_
"Seems well made and fits the fire phone without taking case off."
_

Flexible

Flexible:
"With movement stiffer cables short out the cheap jack fairly easily, the Anker does not seem to have much of a problem with this, leading me to think the more flexible Anker might be putting less stress at the connection."
_
"And the cables are made of a softer rubber so they are more flexible and less likely to damage in a setting where they are moved a lot."
_
"Bullets: Flexible, good strain relief, not easily tangled, may outlast my headphonesAnker sent me this product in exchange for my honest feedback, so I'll do my best to write an accurate, unbiased review."
_
"Attractive, well designed, and lightweight flexible."
_
"Feel of the cable: The cable itself is made of a supple, flexible material that easily bends yet resists tangling."
_
"Nice sturdy quality; soft & flexible cable, ends look strong & durable."
_
"It is soft and flexible, but strong enough that it has not broken despite a couple accidental tugs on my part."
_
"I love the red nylon braiding covering the cord, they feel more sturdy, look great and are still flexible."
_

Headphone

Headphone:
"The only problem is that the insulation in the cord seems to be lacking, as every bump or jostle of the cable (basically anytime you're not sitting perfectly still) echos up through the line and right into the headphones - which is a huge negative."
_
"I had purchased some headphones a month earlier, but in the end, the auxiliary cord for those headphones broke."
_
"The problem is, it slips into and out of the ports on the headphones and PC front panel connector (Corsair Obsidian 750D) too easily."
_
"I use the audio cable for my noise cancellation headphones, and they frequently get broken at the strain relief."
_
"I have some Monster audio headphones that I broke the included cable on and I also used this with them with no problems so looks as though I will probably be ordering an additional cable to take care of my headphones."
_
"Looks nicer and is sturdier than my Oppo PM-3 headphone cable, and sound quality is the same."
_
"It is working perfectly as a cable for my headphones."
_
"Same with my Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 which are great headphones with a quality build."
_
"e. g. My Noontec Hammo is a great cheaper headphone, but the build quality is not top top notch."
_
"Sound quality is also very good using Beats Solo HD headphones plugged into my iPhone."

Plug

Plug:

_
"It's hard to get excited about a pin plug cable."
_
"Neither of the plugs is angled, which is the only negative thing to say about this product."
_
"The ends of the plugs have an awesome metal grip at the end of each side to provide a place to hold on to when plugging and unplugging the cable, as well as providing a serious amount of bend protection at the weak point of the cable where the connection is from wire to plug."
_
"Why put up with audio dropouts, sketchy sound quality, lowed battery life and other negatives when you can simply plug your phone into the speaker with a mini cable?"
_
"Given the low price and good quality sound, I can live with having to plug it back in every now and again."
_
"The chrome around the plugs are sleek, if that matters to you."
