I've never had to change a Cordial cable in my life. I've got countless of them, some that I intensively tour with (coiled weirdly on stage, walk on them, pull on them, drop them, they got dust, water/alcohol, etc). I use these for my speakers it's the perfect length to run from my interface. Sound is crystal clear, coils beautifully (not to soft, not too stiff, keeps its coiling resistance over time). Best price/quality ratio. They are simply the best, I'm gonna stop here praising them because I could go on for ever!
