I ordered a pair of these to link my mixer to my effects processor. But I wanted to leave them connected in the rack, and the way the mixer was mounted, didn't leave a lot of headroom when the lid was on.
So after rejected a number of cables I already had, and some more that I bought off ebay, I tried these.
Now most of the other low profile cables I was looking at had either plastic cased jack plugs, or a horrible cheap tin.
These on the other hand have a very solid cylindrical metal casing on each jack which makes them feel very tough, also plenty of spill over onto the cable to protect the joint.
The cable itself is supple and doesn't feel cheap.
Delivered quickly, and once installed, the lid fits on my mixer with no issue, so I leave these connected all the time. This does however mean I can't comment too much on how tough they are, as mine are now a bit molly coddled, not having to be pulled and pushed umpteen times a week. But I do think by the feel and build, that these cables will rough it with the best and are ideal link leads guitar pedals etc where they will get a bashing!
