      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!

      Purchased for last minute rehearsal

      I had rehearsal with my band and I forgot to bring my headphones so that the drummer could hear the backing tracks. He said he had his Beats headphones but no 3.55 cable for it. So I rushed to the nearest Best Buy and bought this cable. Unfortunately for some reason the plug would not go into his Beats. Not sure why but basically I purchased these for no reason because we weren't able to use them. That is really the only reason why I purchased them. They may or may not work for other applications, but they did not work for what I needed them for. I give it 3 stars because it is not fair to give less because they might work in other instances.

      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.

      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.

      Did the trick!

      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!

      I was looking for an audio cable to use that was compatible with my phone and tablet it the problem that I kept coming up with was I have covers on both and the cables I had were to big and I couldn't use them and have my cover on at the same time until I went to Best Buy and I explained my situation to an Associate and he was able to assist me with my problem. He then showed me the Insignia 3'-3.5mm Audio Cable and it fit both my phone and tablet and I was ecstatic! I love being able to listen to my music while traveling and this product has made that possible.

      Poorly designed, cheaply made

      Not satisfied at all with my purchase. When trying to connect my Sony MDR1000X headphones to my laptop, the plug refused to stay in and instead continued to pop out. On inspection and after numerous attempts at maybe getting the correct angle to fit the plug in perfect, I found the plug was too loose in the first place. Also, the printing of the insignia label looks tacky, and the material twists easily. Do not purchase, you'll regret it only 2 months after buying.

      The earbuds of my iPod hurt my ears after a short amount of time. My daughter mentioned a portable battery operated speaker, something she uses when out in her yard. This one is perfect for my needs: Lightweight, compact enough to carry in a fanny pack, surprisingly good sound and lots of battery life. It's also nice getting away from the ear buds as it is now easier to keep track of my surroundings and hear critters like buzz worms.
