    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Perfect for playing my MP3 player

    This audio cable provides me the ability to plug in my MP3 Player, iPod, and/or flash drive at the same time and maintain fully charged batteries rather than using Bluetooth for extended periods when driving. Unfortunately, my vehicle has only one USB port. Therefore, the single USB port restricts my use of having two media devices plugged in at the same time as I use the iPod and MP3 player during outdoors activities and driving. Now, this music lover continues to have wonderful music listening opportunities as desired.

    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.

    This cable actually brought joy into my life, lol. I hook up my phone to my car speakers and it lets me use the volume controls of the car radio system; No matter what the outside noise is, you can hear everything clearly. Sometimes I play music off the phone, this way. It makes entertainment fun! Originally I purchased this so I could hook up my phone to the Altec Lansing mini travel speaker, because sometimes the volume on the phone does not allow for clear communication due to reception issues. This helped me de-stress during calls.

    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 laughed a little when Best Buy requested a review of this cable. I mean, it’s a cable. Then I thought about it and realized it’s a great little cable. It connects my TV to my speaker. It gets the job done. Without it, it’s not connected. Actually, I love this little cable. It’s an amazing cable in that it does exactly what it supposed to do. Wouldn’t it be great if everything did exactly what it’s supposed to do? This little guy does. Buy it.

    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.

    Great backup audio option

    So my XLR input broke and got this in a pinch and it worked fantastic as the stereo output on the Sony a7s II worked perfect with my sennheiser transmitter. One thing to check. A few times when I pulled the cable out of the a7s the audio on the cameras internal mic would not take over as it thought the cable was still plugged into the stereo. Just replug it back in and pull back out and did he good to go with the internal mic working properly.

    I had an aux cable that came with my phone and it worked fine but then the plug got bent, so I had to buy another one - got one cheap via Amazon but for some reason it keeps trying to activate Google voice command on my tablet when I am trying to listen to my audiobook in the car - very annoying! So I bought this one (twice the price) and so far, no more Google voice interrupting my audiobooks! Perfect!

    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.

    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.

    I’ve gone through dozens of auxiliary cords through the years, all ranging from target, Walmart, and amazon. Needless to say that the majority of those cords faulted rather quickly, some even within a few months. However this cord seems to hold up pretty well in comparison. It’s just a simple cable that does as it should, and the not breaking part is just an added bonus.

    I think I have a dozen of this kind of cable running around my house, but I always seem to need one more. I got this to keep my grandmother from blowing out the TV speakers. I ran an RCA from the speaker output on the TV up and around the room, to a Y-connector (RCA to 3.5mm) through a pair of barrel connectors, to this cable, and into my old computer speakers. Not the most elegant solution, but it got the job done. It isn't the cheapest option, but it was in stock and convenient to pick up.

    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!

    Basically, this Insignia brand Aux cord was my only option in-store. I had purchased a cheap cord on Amazon and it only lasted a week before cutting out and sounding horrible. I'm happy with the Insiginia cord. Good value, sounds great; allows me to listen to Apple Music on my long commute. The in-store experience was less than impressive however. Hard to find product; no blueshirts to help. Maple Grove MN store needs better organization with mobile phone accessories.

    3 Ft. Insignia Audio Cable

    Bought the audio cable since, I couldn't find my old one. It was a little high in price but it does the job . At least the cabling material looks sturdy. My newly leased car unfortunately did not have a CD Player, but it did have an audio port connection at least. So my MP3 based CD player can then be connected to the audio port to play my vast collection of CDs.
