    I like the quality of this cable. Functions perfectly. I would buy a longer on next time since it is exactly 3ft.

    I bought a set of AKG K7XX open back headphones a few months ago (via Massdrop). They came with a decent-quality 10ft (!) cord, which I found WAY, WAY too long for regular use. Obviously I’d rather the cord be too long than too short, but still… 10 FEET LONG! It was unwieldy, to put it mildly.After a couple months of stuffing 7 feet of cord in my pocket, I finally decided to look for something more reasonable.That’s where this 1.2m (4 foot) cord comes in. I was torn between this one and a similar one that had inline volume/track controls, but I settled on this one for the sake of simplicity… seems like fancy features are always the first thing to fail on such products.I wasn’t sure what to make of this cord when I first got it. It’s got a fantastic braided sheath, a metal spring for strain relief on the TRS end, and appears to have some excellent quality connectors on both ends. The 1/4″ TRS adapter is screw-on, which I appreciate. The 3.5mm end connects solidly into all my devices without being ridiculously tight. And most importantly, the length is perfect.My only concern was the thickness of the cable. It seemed kinda thin compared to the 10 foot cable I was using before, and since I tend to use headphones with my HTC 10 without an external amp, I worried that I might lose some loudness through a thinner wire.Turns out my fears were unfounded. If anything, I seem to get more volume out of my phone now than I used to. I can listen comfortably at less than half volume, which gives me plenty of headroom.For the price, this cord is a downright bargain. If you’re in a similar situation as I was and you’re hesitating, don’t. Just pull the trigger and order this. Mine arrived just in time to listen to the new deluxe re-issue of Faith No More’s “We Care A Lot” album, and it’s been an amazing listening experience.

    I bought this cable to replace the original cable for my AKG M220s after the cable broke and so far this has held up and with the same audio quality. I recommend this as a nice cheap replacement with a good size! Don’t bother with sizes under 2 Meters though, I recommend the 3 Meter version.

  4. Austin Dean

    I had to shop around for a bit after my OEM cable gave out. Experienced a few not-so-great cables and was fed up with them failing after only months. This one seems to be much higher build quality and it has showed no signs of giving up! The cable is braided and comes with a 1/4″ adapter. If you’ve been searching for female mini-XLR to headphone jack, STOP SEARCHING AND JUST BUY THIS ONE.

    Short which is exactly what I needed. Quality cable

  6. Dennis Zweverink

    So it’s a cable for a very rare use case: if you need a replacement for an AKG K7xx or K700 headphone. Since that connects to the headset with a mini-XLR connection and this has it, it works great!The only downside is the cable length which was a bit shorter than the original cable.The K7xx are the comfiest and best audio quality pair of cans I’ve used so it was well worth getting a replacement cable.

    PROS: High quality braided design. Looks and feels durable.CONS: None at the moment.I picked up a pair of the Massdrop x AKG K7XX Red Edition a while ago. The nearly 10 foot stock cable that comes with the headphones is a little bit too much length for what I need. Did some research and found these on Amazon. To me sound quality between the two sound exactly the same. Cable is definitely higher quality and feel than the stock cable that came with the headphones. Perfect length for what I need and cable doesn’t kink or get caught on things unlike the other one. The braided design makes it easy to roll up and store away.

    I got one of these as a replacement for the one my AKG K240 studio headset came with after my cat bit it. The mesh jacket sleeve apparently makes this one less fun to bite, or it smelled less tasty. By the way, the cable that came with the headset is in my drawer for some reason, and the jacket is doing that nasty sweating thing that makes rubber or plastic turn sticky and stinky. The original cable is about 6 months older, and this replacement I’m reviewing is not all nasty and sticky.Anyway, after a couple of years of daily use and occasionally acting as a leash when I dropped my headset, forgetting I had it on and walking away with it, plus the occasional cat nips, the sleeve is getting tiny nicks to the fibers. Nothing is obviously frayed, but I tend to run my fingers over it to check for damage every day or so (paranoia) and I dislike the sensation.I’m going to order another one of these to replace it because it has held up so well to my clumsiness. Seriously, the cable is short enough that my headset doesn’t hit the floor when it gets dropped, so it’s taken some cruel treatment. Plus, I lost the 3.5mm to 1/4″ TRS adapter and I feel this is the cheapest way to get another that I can’t mess up by ordering something that can’t thread on.

    Purchased in 2019 – now in 2022 I have to jiggle the cable to get sound to come through and if I move the cable wrong I lose audio signal.
