Product Details

Parts Express 3.5mm Male to Male Slim-Plug Shielded Audio Cable 3 ft.

With audio electronics getting smaller all the time, the 3.5 mm stereo cable is becoming a much more common way to connect audio sources such as computers, cell phones, and MP3 players to amplified speakers, home stereo equipment, or portable DJ systems.

This slim plug 3.5 mm stereo cable fits more than just the visual aesthetic of today's electronics. The 6.5 mm diameter plug with integrated strain relief works with many protective cases that you'd have to remove for use with a traditionally-sized plug, easing frustration and saving wear and tear. Designed with 100% shield, this cable resists external interference and noise that kill your musical experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done!Perfect for my car aux input. Not too long, not too short. It is ridiculous what you can pay somewhere else for a cable like this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DurableThis replaces the cheepo one that came with headphones and broke. These are much heavier and you can't beat the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Modular Synthesizer PatchcordsI have a collection of modular synthesizers, and never seem to have enough patch-cords. I purchased a multitude of these and the slim plug is handy for patching in tightly spaced I/O jacks. Excellent choice for the money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not slim enoughI have a Lifeproof® case. This line of plugs is still too fat for this case. Sorry, no deal. I'll still use it, just not for what I wanted it for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for car useIt works as it should. No snap/crackle/pop. It doesn't hum. It's great for car use as it is short and the plug is slender. I use it to connect my Nokia Lumia 822 Windows Phone to the Kenwood head unit in my Jeep.

Parts Express 3.5mm Male to Male Slim-Plug Shielded Audio Cable 3 ft.

This cable is listed as "Shielded", its it actually shielded, with a Floating Shield or a drain connected at one end? If its "shield" is connected at both ends (or worse is the conductor for sig ground) then it carries current and isn't a shield.

Asked by: mpheyse
These cables feature two-conductors shielded by a Mylar foil with drain wire. The drain wire attaches to the ground lug on the connector for an end to end shielded cable.

Can this cable be used to connect the 12volt trigger of my home theatre receiver to amplifier.

Asked by: Pvan
Yes this will work fine for that application.
