The build of the cable is sturdy and I like the thickness of the wire.
green quote
The overall quality is great and the fact that it's shielded helps keep interference noise, and the hum I was hearing before to a minimum as well.
green quote
The gold plating on the 3.5 mm plug says a lot about this XLR cable.
green quote
The XLR plug that came with my microphone also locked into place, but it took quite a bit of force to separate the plug from the microphone.
green quote
The XLR plug on this cable connects firmly with the microphone while being easy to remove when the recording session is over.This is just a personal preference, but I also like the fact that even the XLR plug is black.

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I highly recommend this stereo 1/4-inch/1/8-inch jack cable based on its brand popularity, price trends, and manufacturer ratings. Let's go over the reasons why buying this stereo 1/4-inch/1/8-inch jack cable now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. The current price is in its lowest range, best time to buy!

image/svg+xml Highest Price Lowest Price $12.99 $10.99

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has not changed from May 11, 2020 to May 20, 2020, which means that it has steady and healthy supply!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this stereo 1/4-inch/1/8-inch jack cable was $12.99, and the lowest price point was $10.99. The current price isn't close to either the highest or the lowest price point, so it's a fairly reasonable time to make this purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, the price tends to stay more or less the same. Not a lot of price movement is expected, but the price could still move in either direction by a smidge.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $11.86 a week from now. It might be best to wait for a future price drop, but if this product checks all the boxes for you, don't wait to optimize for small gain.

2. Cable Matters is a known stereo 1/4-inch/1/8-inch jack cable brand

Cable Matters is a fairly popular brand among other stereo 1/4-inch/1/8-inch jack cable brands. I found some YouTube videos that talk about this product, which means this is a widely known product/brand. I have attached the videos above and links in the additional research section down below, so don't forget to watch and read those!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

3. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, Cable Matters has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.

4. This stereo 1/4-inch/1/8-inch jack cable has positive reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This stereo 1/4-inch/1/8-inch jack cable has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this stereo 1/4-inch/1/8-inch jack cable more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon
