Product Details

Parts Express 3.5mm Male to Male Slim-Plug Shielded Audio Cable 6 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 FINALLY a tru Mobile cableThis is the only 3.5mm cable i've found that fits through my Mophie without using their adapter. Even others that are labelled "mobile so you don't have to take your case off" never seem to work. The cable itself it pretty thin and flimsy, but it is inexpensive and I have bought several without any issues.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gives me staticMy cable gives me static when I move the cable near the plug on one end. I've had this before with other inexpensive cables, but wasn't expecting it from a Parts Express cable. As long as I'm not moving the cable while it is in use its fine, but if I pick up my phone while its plugged in I get the static.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Cable if you are in a pinch.A pretty effective cable if you are looking to patch sound from an iPod or Tablet into a small bluetooth speaker or Beats. The tubing is a bit stiff, but solid. The only issue that I do have is that the plug sometimes doesn't securely stay in the port at times. Decent for the workplace, but I wouldn't use on a big show.

Parts Express 3.5mm Male to Male Slim-Plug Shielded Audio Cable 6 ft.

I need a cable to plug my ipod into a sony receiver at least 6 ft. long, which should I get?

Asked by: TINole
This depends on what type of connection the receiver has. If it has a dedicated 3.5mm input for iPod or MP3 players, any 3.5mm male to male cable will work. If you need one end to have RCA's, you will want something like 240-136.
