    You may wonder what is the big deal rating a simple audio cable but this one accomplished something no other cable I tried could accomplish, that is I was able to plug this into my iPod Nano and at the same time, plug in the charger cable. The key is that this cable is advertised as a "Low Profile" cable in that the plugs on either end are not as fat as most others. This allows it to be plugged into the iPod Nano and not interfere with the Apple charging cable that plugs in right next to it. I have my iPod Nano connected to my audio system via this cable but also wanted to keep charging the Nano while I was playing it. With every other cable I tried, the plastic plugs were wider and thus did not allow room to also plug in the charger cable at the same time. This "low profile" cable did the trick. I can listen to my music from the iPod Nano through my audio system and at the same time, keep it charged and not have to worry about the battery going dead. Again, I tried several other brand cables and non allowed me to do this. Great cable and accomplished exactly what I wanted. Thank you Insignia!

    Does exactly what I need it to do at a fair price

    I needed a replacement cord to connect my cell phone to the Aux jack in my car, to be able to hear incoming calls thru my car speaker system and thus be hands free. I entered the store, went to the correct department, explained to the clerk what i needed. He knew just what I was looking for and showed me 2 suitable cords of different lengths. i chose the shorter one, paid for it (the price was very reasonable), and was out of the store in less then 10 minutes. The cord itself works perfrctly and the length is amply for my needs without a lot of excess to get in my way, This is not a sexy item, but it does exactly what I need it to do, and at a very reasonable price. You can't ask for more.

    I ordered an Echo Dot along with a higher-end gold plated cable that had one straight and one 90 degree connector. I did this to allow my wife, (an Amazon Prime member), to play music from the Amazon collection over her new Bose radio. Unfortunately, although not noted when I ordered it, the cable was back ordered for over a week. I purchased this "open box" cable to fill-in during the wait time. It performed flawlessly, and when I finally received the higher-end cable, we honestly could tell no sound quality difference between the two of them, no matter how much I swapped them around and experimented. This "cheaper" cable is a keeper!

    It works with everything but iPhone 7

    I thought I was buying a regular 3' 3.5mm audio cable. And I did. You can use this cord with everything but an iPhone 7 (you need a dongle with new iPhone). I have a Sony Walkman cassette player I purchased in early 90s. It works with that. My wife has an iPhone 6s. It works with that. I have a surface pro. It works with that. Just not iPhone 7. It works in my car stereo. It works in my skullcandy headphones. It works with my offbrand blue tooth portable speakers. Just not the iPhone 7. Everything that has anything to do with audio, this cord is what you need, except the iPhone 7. I'm typing this review with my iPhone 7 and lost my headphones with the adapter. So I'm not listening to any music right now. This cord can't help me.

    Better than Bluetooth

    This is very strange, but I bought an inexpensive phone and a Bluetooth speaker with the intention of listening to FM radio. For whatever reason, the sound kept conking out (even though the phone apparently "thought" that it was communicating with the speaker). When I connected the phone and the speaker using the audio cable, everything worked fine. I'm about to try the phone and the cable on my antiquated hi-fi to see if I can get better reception than with the FM antenna. No complaints whatsoever about the cable.

    It didn't cost much because it's cheap

    I asked for the best aux cable that Bestbuy had to offer because I wanted something of quality. I knew it wasn't nice, but it may very well be the best they had. It was probably recommended for the fact that it is Bestbuy brand and they made the highest profit margin. I chose the buy the better of the two similar options of the same brand and I am still not satisfied. For those looking for a cheap functional aux cord you found it: -it works -it sometimes disconnects without physically unplugging -it produces static (the thing I was trying to avoid) If you are a high school kid and you don't have money, get it. If you aren't, shop elsewhere.

    I needed a 3mm stereo cable with a very small 'footprint' (regarding the size of the plastic shielding at the plug) so that it would fit into my iPhone 6s case that had a very restricted opening where the earbud plug normally enters the phone. The small (but very sturdy) plastic plug housing fit perfectly into the narrow slot provided for the standard earbuds. This connector end (the plug) was exactly what I was looking for and functions perfectly!

    Works fine, but you could do better on price.

    It's an audio cable. Frankly, there's not much to go over here. All that you really need to know is that it works fine and there are no issues with audio only coming through one channel or anything like that. You should be aware that the casing on the ends is rather bulky so if your device has a jack that is not flush with the surface i.e. sunken into the body of the device than the cable may not fit.
