        These are basically the cheapest possible 1/4 cords anyone could possibly manufacture and sell. They are also (so far) reliable and clean sounding, which I didnt expect at this price. Worst case scenario I spent about 60 cents per jack and have to resolder them to better cables after they break. So far Ive had no problems at all. Ive noticed no hiss, interference, blips in connection, etc. I havent had them long, so no word on longevity. My only complaints: -maybe less colors per batch, 2-3 different colors would be much easier to colorcode my chains. Im going to buy 3 more packs for my experimental rig, then I'll have 4 of each color. -more options for length. 17' is a little too long for my guitar fx and left me with some slack. I gave them 2.5 on features because they dont have unscrewable 1/4 jacks, but thats not a complaint because theyd be a lot more expensive if they did that.

        I bought the right angle version. These cables look and feel good. When they work, they sound good. For some applications they are fine, but it depends on your gear. Depending on the jack in a particular piece of equipment, it may or may not work. In some jacks, the plugs do not make good contact and are intermittent if they are rotated. This has nothing to do with the wiring. It has to do with the way the plug seats in the jack due to the shape of the tip of the plug and the length before it hits the stop. The shape of the metal part of the plug itself is slightly different than every other cable I have and the tip does not make good contact with the jacks in musical equipment because the shape of the tip deflects the plug to the wrong depth inside the jack, either too far or too short and rotating the plug just slightly will cause the signal to cut out. This happens with every end of all 8 cables and can be verified with a cable tester (rotate the plug and it shows the signal is intermittent). I was able to force the plug to work properly by shimming the end of the cable so that the plug just barely can't seat all the way and it works fine then, but I really shouldn't have to shim a cable to make it work. Even the cheapest, worst quality junk cable I own doesn't have this problem. Only these, and again, it's every plug on every cable. Due to the item being so inexpensive, it was not even worth returning it. I would recommend spending a little more money and getting anything else. It's not worth hours of your time dealing with a problem like this the way I did just to save a few dollars.

            Color coded 8 cables are very convenient for wiring at gigs. Many cables on the gig floor and panels but these color coded cables make troubleshoot or line change very easy.

              These things are great, a nice length for all kinds of patching, on the back of FX racks, on awkward shaped pedals, hooking the mixer to stompboxes. I always found the shorter ones to short for anything oher than pedal to pedal.

              This will be my third pack, I just keep finding more uses for them.

                I ordered right angled and got straight, I guess you guys ran out of 90 degree cables. No matter, I am retired now and will be using them at home.

                  I ordered the angled ones and I received the straight one. I decided to accept this and decided not to use them. I went to use one for the first time and it had a short in it. Seems that some people didn't have an issue so maybe it worth a shot if you're trying to save money. I'm returning mine. It also may be helpful to note that they were slightly noisy cables.

                        I ordered this pack of cables with angled ends. I later received a call from a representative who said they were backordered. He tried to talk me into changing my order to similar cables with straight ends.

                        I said no, I will wait for the product I ordered. A few days later I received a package of cables with straight ends. I have no use for these. But the price is not high enough to warrant wasting my time trying to get this corrected.

                                  I needed some extra patch cables and looked all over the internet - these beat everybody for price. The quality was better than I expected, and they fit my need perfectly. I'll be buying more whenever I need unbalanced patch cords.
                                  These would work great for guitar rigs too!

                                  This review applies to the patch cords with the right-angle heads, not the straight ones. I haven't taken these patch cords on the road yet, but they do seem a little light. However, as home studio backups or in setups that won't be changed a lot, they get the job done, and you get a lot of them for the price. I like the variety of colors, too. That could make it easy to sort through the "spaghetti" in a hurry.
