By David Reynolds
As a hobby, I collect and repair vintage hi-fi speakers. I was looking for a cable that I could plug into my iPhone 6+ headphone jack and, using a frequency (Signal) generator application on the iPhone, plug the other end of the cable into my stereo amp. I then connect the speaker under repair to the same amp. For a "Woofer" speaker, I set the frequency generator app to between 30Hz and 50 HZ @ 0db gain. This enables me to determine whether the paper cone of the speaker under repair is making contact with the voice coil or the frame. It also facilitates the correct installation and centering of replacement foam surrounds. The FosPower cable is well constructed and priced right! A welcome addition to my audio tool kit.

Great cable with nice 3.5mm 1/8th jack for connection to smartphones, even in-case
By John M. Weaver
This worked great for installation in my in-law's Acura MDX to create a cheap Aux input for their stock navigation/stereo.
We searched a lot of options for Auxilary and bluetooth connection interfaces to connect ipads and iphones to my in-law's MDX. Most of them were $150-250 plus labor to install. I was able to connect the RCA ends to the ports in the compartment over the rear passenger wheel and then tuck the cable in along the molding all the way up to the front and pull it through below the dashboard at the center console with a clotheshanger duct taped to the 3.5mm end. The 15ft length gave them an extra 2-3 ft to work with at the front. I recognize most people wouldn't purchase this cable for that purpose, but maybe this can help someone.
The spacer on the 3.5mm jack is also the perfect width to allow connection to most smartphones without having to remove the case.

High Quality Reliable cable for the Money
For the price, this cable is very robust and well built. I installed an amplifier on my wood boat and used this cable as input from cell phones into the amp.
Very Sturdy Design: Thick cable and high quality connectors make for a really durable cable. The connection ends are gold plated and the plug ends feel really solid.
Easy to open packaging: The box was just the right size for the cable and it slid right out of the box.
Rubberized Grips in the RCA Ends: This might seem like a minor feature, but when you are reaching around the back of a stereo, it helps you keep a firm grip on the plugs. In my application, the rubber plugs really helped my when I was trying to install the inputs into a tight area up under the bow of my boat.
Very Good Sound Quality: I'm not much of an audiophile but the sound was crisp and clear. There was no static or popping of any kind. That being said, I won't claim that it sounds better than any other cable I plugged in.
The cable itself was perhaps 3 times thicker than the cord on a pair of iPod headphones. While this helps with the sturdy qualities of the cord, it may make it harder to snake the cable places and could possibly limit where the wire is run and hidden.
The sheath on the aux side threads on and off. I'm not sure what this feature was for but it didn't seem to allow the user to replace the aux end.
None to note
Bottom Line: This is a very good quality cable for the money. You can buy knowing that this cable will last a very long time. A less expensive cable might provide the same sound quality but I doubt that it would last as long as this one. It was a perfect item for my application.
