Cable

Cable:
"The end pieces on this cable were constantly coming loose and it was a hassle constantly trying to screw them back on tight."
_
"I didn't drop or pull on any cable excessively."
_
"The connection socket does not have a good contact although the cable looks solid."
_
"I first thought the cable I received was broken so I returned it."
_
"There is something loose somewhere so the sound quality is terrible and changes depending on how you twist or move the cable, sometimes cutting off completely."
_
"The internal wires on this cable are extremely small and flimsy, and will continue to break with any significant use."
_

Connection

Connection:
"The connection socket does not have a good contact although the cable looks solid."
_
"I had to disassemble the connector, remove the broken strain relief, re-solder the connections, improvise a new strain relief, and re-assemble."
_
"I would have rated this cable higher, except that within a month of use the strain relief on the female connector failed and caused the connection to become intermittent during a performance."
_
"If my fix doesn't last, I will go back to a cable with molded connectors.........April 2013 - - - - Downgrading my initial review to 1 star after the connection failed again."
_
"Now the reason I'm returning this cable the day after I received it is due to the fact the female end of the cable is ever so slightly larger then the Klipsch male end creating a faulty connection which reduced overall volume and degraded sound quality when fully inserted."
_
"cable ended up failing in the connection to the end connectors."
_
"Well, I plugged them in, and they sounded like crap... this was connected to my laptop at work..."
_
"It has also worked great for connecting iPods to the auxiliary input on the stereo."
_
")The Belkin is doing the job, delivering clear sound with excellent points of connection."

_
"cable ended up failing in the connection to the end connectors."

_
"I currently use this as an extension cord for a microphone, and it's well made -- the ends are solid, and the connectors slide in and out of an aux jack with a smoothness that is just hard to describe."
_
"the connectors are 24K gold plated and will give you a really nice snug highly conductive connectionUPDATE 09 28 2012: I never really got to use it heavily and today I used it, there is a very big time abnormality with frequency response."

Price

Price:
"save your money there is something majorly wrong with these cables"
_
"The cheap extension cables elsewhere will usually go dead in a few months."
_
"Clearly, cord X is to blame, but so is cord Y, Z, and every other cheap eBay or Amazon extension I have tried in my attempt to find one that works (if there is a name-brand item out there greater than 12 feet long, I have yet to find it).The Belkin cord has a nice flexible design and the jacks are made of an attractive and rugged turned aluminum, with brass terminals."
_
"Excellent product for the price, and order arrived in time."
_
"nice, heavy duty little audio cable, works great on my laptop hooked up to TV for HT..and the price was almost nothing..no interference or buzz..I'd buy them again, but not really something we undo and move around, I mean their plugged in and we don't mess with them, they look as though they will last for a good long time..the vga splitter with audio had about a 6 inch cord and had to buy this extension to be able to reach the audio plug..works just great.."
_
"Buy it - for the price it ranks among the best values going."
_
"It is because of all the cheap Chinese (etc) goods that has flooded our market."
_
"PROS1) The cable is thick and durable.2) Both ends of the cable are made out of durable metals.3) Cables plug in smoothly, and they lock in place well, unlike the cheap extension cables sold online.4) I've been using it for over a year now, and it still works."

Quality

Quality:
"I never had interference or sound quality issues until it broke so I give it an average rating."
_
"The sound quality is horrible."
_
"There is something loose somewhere so the sound quality is terrible and changes depending on how you twist or move the cable, sometimes cutting off completely."
_
"First the quality of the sound started to cut in and out and then it totally broke."
_
"Also I would have to say the Belkin cable seems to be of high quality and I'm disappointed I have to return it."
_
"Now the reason I'm returning this cable the day after I received it is due to the fact the female end of the cable is ever so slightly larger then the Klipsch male end creating a faulty connection which reduced overall volume and degraded sound quality when fully inserted."
_
"feels like good quality cable and better then others I have bought and tried but I do still get some audio dropouts when the cable is moved"
_
"Great Cable - This cable is certainly HIGH QUALITY and is NOT stiff."
_
"At first glance these cables look good, but upon using them I found the quality to be shoddy."
_
"It's a very nice looking wire, appears to be of nice quality."
_
"Nice looking quality but how am I supposed to use these moving around."

_
"I've since tried plugging the PureAV extension cord into my computer at home, my other ipod, and each time they made my VMODA buds sound terrible."
_
"Fiddling with the connection made it work but I had to tape it in position for the sound to stay clear."
_
"I had thought this was a bit longer..but felt a bit short...however that does not take away anything from the product which in itself is a beauty and is quite thick and durable compared to other extensions...Sound Output was also very good..."
_
"I liked this product because it sound great when you plus it in."
_
"On the other hand I was able to get good sound quality when I just laid the male end of Klipsch halfway into the female end of the Belkin cable but this is not acceptable because the two are not truly connected and the slightest movement of the cable would cause it to fall out defeating the whole purpose."
_
"These cables sound fine, and the build quality is great."
