    Decent Audio Cable

    This cable functions as audio transfer from a phone to a speaker, car radio, or any simple way to connect 2 devices for audio transfer. I found that the quality is no better than the latest standard of bluetooth connectivity built into the S8 phone I have [i.e. Bluetooth® v 5.0 (LE up to 2Mbps), ANT+, USB type-C, NFC, Location (GPS, Galileo, Glonass, BeiDou)]. I would use this cable as a backup if my bluetooth connectivity failed between my phone and speaker, or my phone and car, or if I was connecting to an older sound system that didn't have bluetooth. Overall, it's ok. The audio cable functions perfectly fine. I gave it 4 stars because it was not a significant improvement over my existing bluetooth connection to my audio devices.

    Does what it’s supposed to

    So far so good I’ve had it for a week now and it does what it’s supposed to do. I will add that the employees that helped me were extremely nice and our correspondence was short but pleasurable. The guy was knowledgable about location of what I needed and I was in and out in less than 2 minutes however I brought in the adapter I needed the cord for with me and it took 2 trips to get my phone connected to my wife’s truck. So not completely their fault. I was also there with my brain on temporary hiatus.

    It's good but costly

    This product served it's purpose. It is a costly item that is a quarter of its price in other online establishments. Also I had an uncomfortable situation checking out as there was a line for returns and a line for purchases. There were no arrows indicating where the line began so I went to the far left line. I was standing there for a minute and a rep came up to me and told me that the line was over there. I then said what is this line and she said it wasn't a line? Then others around me were laughing. I then proceeded to tell them that they should block the area with something so people don't fall into the trap and they didn't care. I will not be going back to best buy again and will only buy products at other retailers.

    Great Cable Choice

    I have a pair of bluetooth headphones, but my laptop is older and doesn't support bluetooth, so I need a 3.5mm-3.5mm cable, as I work from home with my husband and things I may need to listen to on my computer won't interrupt his work. The 3.5mm cable that came with the headphones were 4ft. and when I would turn my head to talk to my husband, a lot of times the cable would pull. After a few months of this, the original cable started to strip, exposing wires. I bought this 6ft cable and wow! They're so much stronger in terms of thickness, the audio seemed better, and I no longer have to worry about the cable pulling when turning to talk to my husband.

    My car is old school for sure, it doesn't have a USB port with the radio and my car is not Bluetooth capable, so this cord is awesome and easy to use! I don't even have to remove the case on my phone, its just plug and play, I hit AUX on my radio and I can play Iheart radio, YouTube, etc during my drives, I create a playlist prior for safe driving, no one needs a driver searching for tunes, willy nilly! No more CD changes or endless flipping thru stations... this cord lets me have total control of my music and I love it!

    I was looking to use this cable to replace one that I lost that came with my headphones. But when I connected it to my phone, I could hear a low grade crackling noise running constantly in the music. Not pleasant. I tried it on two different sets of headphones (couldn't find the original cable for either) and got the same results. If your not too concerned about sound quality, this would work, but if you don't want your music to sound like swarming bees - I'd try something different.

    6' 3.5mm Audio Cable - Black

    Audio Cables themselves are not all that special. Leaving them to sit alone on a table is rather boring and they don't do much other than just sit there looking like a regular old Audio Cable. It's when you connect them to the items you want to connect them too is when the magic happens. Suddenly BAM they are the best item in the world and this particular Audio Cable is no exception. When it was connected it made my life complete. Thank you Insignia™ - 6' 3.5mm Audio Cable - Black you rock my world.

    Great cord for price

    My daughter asked for a cord for Christmas. The cords I had bought in the past, for less, broke quickly. Such as cord bending at connector, and eventually cracking. Or the wire inside goes bad and you loose a consistent connection. Anyway, paid a little more, appears to be better made. Sound is great! So far so good!

    Works Perfectly - But---

    Purchased for hook up of my new bookshelf speakers and subwoofer. Cable works great, no problems, however, it is not very thick, and I am not sure how it will hold up to the "test of time". It may last longer than I do, who knows, but I have seen better quality cable/cord material. At the price point, it was worth the gamble to me.

    Classic yet useful wire for sound. These have gone up about $5 in price since the last time I needed one of these. It is just to connect a monitor to a desktop CPU. I get headaches from the bright super HD monitors so I still use VGA. However I moved and can't remember where the audio wire went. Bought this in-store and an associate took me right over.

    PNY 16 GB Flash Drive

    Great flash drive. Open end protector with no external cap to lose. I previously purchased five of these FDs to segregate data storage for various individual subjects. When BB put them on sale for $6 each I purchased two more for backup use. My only complaint is there is no provision for a lanyard; however, my drill press took care of that--just drill a hole in the closed end to attach a lanyard

    Works as intended

    There's only so much that can be said about a 3.5mm cable. The cable works perfectly and allows almost any accessories to be plugged in to speakers almost anywhere. Practically everything has a 3.5mm adapter. I bought the 6ft length as most of the cables are smaller than or equal to 3ft and it's nice being able to stand up or sit comfortably without having to crouch or bend over to manipulate whatever it is you have plugged in.

    This one was defective

    I have used several Insignia cables before and all worked properly and performed the task they were designed to do. This one was the bad egg in the basket. One channel did not work at all and the other was scratchy and intermittent. Best Buy service was excellent as always and I returned the product without any problems. I'd still recommend Insignia products when teamed with Best Buy service.

    I purchased this cable for my husband to use in his work truck because he wanted to be able to listen to the playlists on his iPhone. He likes the cable because "it gets the job done". The length of the cable is good and the connectors are sturdy. My husband uses it five times a week and it is holding up well to repeated use.

    This aux cord is fire

    I have used smaller aux cords in the past, but they break too easily and get bent weird ways due to stretching them out. This cord, however, is 6 feet long of pure fire. Car rides with friends are much better now, as when the person who is currently using it plays a bad song, we can take his privileges away easily and pass the cord onto someone more worthy. In all seriousness, this product does its job and isn't a bad price.

    Since my new car did not come with a CD player I was helped by a Best Buy employee who recommended a portable CD player and the audio cable listed above. The cable plugged into the earphone jack of the CD player and the other end into the auxiliary input in my car. Great sound but had to turn the volume up higher than normal.

    Insignia 3.5mm Audio Cable For Head Phone Jacks

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    I needed a cable to hard wire a 400 watt LG Sound Bar System to an Allienware Lap Top. The Bluetooth LG connection sometimes drops or can get connected to other devices in the house. With the hard wire connection it never drops, and doesn't allow other devices to get connected. This will work for any computer or phones to speakers with a 3.5mm jack as well.

    I only needed a standard cable to connect my phone to a speaker during my workouts. I also did not want to spend too much. The last one I bought from Staples disconnected at the tip, and this one does not appear like it will happen. Time will tell, but so far so good!

    It's a cable so nothing too exciting about it but if you have a device that you want to plug into your automotive sound system that has a 3.5mm input... this is the cable for you. I have several music streaming services on my phone that I enjoy listening to and being able to run that audio through my in dash system is nice. Two thumbs way up!

    Quality Cable

    I originally wanted to buy the cable because I had a shorter one and kept catching it while I was driving and would pull it out. What a surprise I had when I plugged in the new one. Not only was it a great length, but it gave out great sound. I never realized that a cable could make such an improvement in sound quality.
