Very nice! 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from San Francisco, but please don't hold it against me. :(

Others say this is very stiff. Okay, that's true! But it's very durable. For my applications, stiff and durable have worked out great. It has a nice heft to it without being difficult to work with. I've used it with a few different stereo 3.5mm connectors, and the extra heft really locks it into place mechanically, reducing strain on the soldered connections.

For me I use it mostly with audio, but 3-conductor means I have the option of balanced audio signal, plus power, plus shielding ground. The shielding cuts down a bit on interference from my Ham work (I'm at the bottom of a radio well in a big city with a yagi inside a 2-bedroom apt. Every little bit helps!!).

So yeah, stiff, but works great! Easy to strip, solder. The stiffness makes it not-so-great for thing like headphones or stuff that gets re-positioned a lot. But it's 5-start for permanent or semi-permanent stuff. If you're running audio next to your power or twisted pair network runs, this will serve you very well.

Especially at this price, I love it!

I'm buying more. 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from SAN FRANCISCO, CA US

I love this cable. I've used it primarily as audio cabling, ensuring complete case-grounded shielding from my many and varied RF transmission sources (think amateur radio). This is very good quality cable, and is easy to work with.

not very flexible 4 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from macclenny, FL

Yes it's very good quality, good insulation on the wires, but the jacket is soooo stiff! My thought was that if you bothered to use stranded wire, use a more flexible jacket.
