It works, but barely
It works, but barely. I have my LSR305 speakers connected to Chromecast audio via this cable. Sound quality is good, although I had to rotate the 3.5 mm pin a little inside Chromecast audio to get sound out of both left and right channels. As soon as you hold the cable in your hand, you can tell tha...

Cheap. Failed within a week. Spend a couple more bucks and get a repairable cable
I know better than to buy any cable with sealed plastic fittings that cannot be opened and resoldered, yet I did. These failed within a week inside one of the 1/4 inch TRS plugs. I could repair it some day with some good TRS fittings that cost as much as this entire cable, but by then I'll have purc...

Used Successfully to Breakout Stereo Two Ways; just one non-showstopping issue
This stereo breakout works for multiple purposes. I have some powered PA speakers which take XLR or 1/4" balanced/unbalanced line-level inputs which easily match my other musical equipment. But my kids wanted to have music at their New Year's Eve party, which led to my scheme to purchase this item i...

A bargain
For the price, these cables are decent quality and get the job done. Sometimes when I use them, they sound like something more expensive. So, good buy, definitely.

Headphone Out to Audio Interface
I needed something to allow me to run audio from the 1/8" TRS headphone output on my laptop to a 1/4" TS input on my audio interface, a Focusrite Scarlett. Running the headphone output directly to the audio interface sounded awful. Using this breakout cable made it sound 100x better! I just plugged ...

Works great and clean audio
Whenever I need to save some cash, but need something quality I end up defaulting to Hosa. Are they the best cables on the market? No. Are they the best you can get in this price range? Yes, and in the next two price ranges. They don't look "cool", but they work awesome. Honestly they are workhorses...

EXCELLENT FOR CONNECTING AN IPOD OR PORTABLE MUSIC PLAYER
I've bought many of these for use in my recording studio. the 3.5mm plug is always the right size on Hosa, they always fit the little headphone jacks correctly, never too tight or too loose like some cheap imports. I've been using Hosa cables since they first came out in the early 80's and I must sa...

Works for me
I purchased this cable in order to run my ipod or ipad into an analog stereo channel on my mixer for audio playback. I have been running an 1/8" to RCA to the tape input on my Mackie MS1402VLZ (old but tough as nails) This worked great for years until I started using this mixer for more and more liv...
