There a lot of audio accessories out there, and many of them cost more then this Insignia Splitter Cable. However, this particular set works just fine! I'd consider them reliable as I've had them for over 3 months now and they work just as good as the first day I bought them. For $9.99 (as of November 7, 2016) this a good bang for your buck. I'd recommend them to anyone looking share audio say during a flight or road trip. Only thing I'd wish was that there was little to no cable length as it can sometimes get in the way (although very minimal if any... but hey, things can alway get better!).
