from Good basic connectorThe metal tabs are very sturdy and won't likely break or flex under normal use.Given that the type of wire you might be soldering for this connector is thin and fragile, the crimp wire holder seems likely to damage the wire. I clipped it off and just used it as a solder tab only.Because I was trying to solder those terrible lacquered wires of a nice set of earbuds, I had to heat the pads for longer than I should have. The plastic of the connector did get soft, and distorted a little, but it did survive.The barrel is too large for some phone cases. Perhaps Neutrik makes a slimmer one, but I didn't see that here. The other slim one had mixed reviews.

from Neutrik Rean NYS231G 3.5mmI found the plugs to be excellent. I gave them some abuse in soldering wires to large for them and they did not melt. I also drilled out the screw on cover to allow space for my over sized wire and they drilled well with no peel at all. Definitely a great connector that will take abuse. Using size 22 wire should be a snap. I will get the proper cable next time but had this on hand. They did the job of keeping our RF from my audio setup.I will purchase more.
