The connection is good, as I expect of Neutrik. The Strain relief is, however, only of the flat metal kind you bend around the jacket of the cable, making it hard to resolder. It's the best of this kind of jack I've found, but I would like a design more like Neutriks XLR or angled mini-jack strain relief. I did not have any connection problems with it yet - though I don't like soldering it. Neutrik spoiled me.
