Blue Jeans vs Monoprice

Just need some clarification, from casually reading threads here I came away with the impression that Blue Jeans Cable and Monoprice were both inexpensive, serviceable cables.

I checked out their sites and Blue Jeans was shocking more expensive than Monoprice??

I put a question mark because I am confused, am I reading things right?

Blue Jeans is more expensive than a few Auidioquest cables?????

Can someone give me the rundown on Blue Jeans?

Is there another cable company that makes good solid wire on the lower end?

Thumbs up Monoprice is great

If you're talking about HDMI, I just got the Monoprice premium cables. Using for HDR and they're great. Why would you pay more than you have to? At $4 for a cable that works great, it's a no brainer. I think Blue Jeans gets a lot of press on AVS because they're one of the sponsors. I'm not saying they make bad cables, but they are a lot more expensive than Monoprice. I'm not sure where each company manufactures their cables, this may be why some prefer one over the other.

Still, it does not answer my question..... is Blue Jeans not a bottom feeder like Monoprice?

I know I bought long run (50ft) lan cable in the past.... but don't recall them being so expensive.

I have not had success in the past with Monoprice. More than one cable with bad termination connections. Same with Audioquest but at least the Audioquest cable gave out after two years of daily use. (headphone cable) The Monoprice were a problem from day one. (not all of them, but they inspire no confidence)

My old Radio Shack's that I don't through out, in the barn covered with glop and spiders, are better.... for me anyway.

Monoprice is not a bottom feeder, they just happen to sell quality and certified cables for a better price than most of their competitors...cost does not always equate to better quality.

Anecdotally, the only HDMI cable that I've ever had fail on me, was a 15' Blue Jeans cable...but in saying that, any cable can fail.

In over 40 or more years... I have never had a cable or wire "go bad". Although, once I have a connection, it rarely moves.

Wow, I'd say you are VERY fortunate.

I got a bad cable splitter from BlueJeans few months ago (bad connection, bad hum). Tossed it and put an extra on. Good to go. I normally buy an extra or 2 just because. Anyway, why try to fix, or, call and complain and get a replacement with something so inexpensive? Screw it, life is too short...

I have had great success with Monoprice. You can buy through their site or Amazon. These cables are well-made and should last years. Save the money you might use for higher-priced cables to purchase useful items such as good banana plugs, HDMI locking cables with screws (Monoprice for example), lower-gauge speaker cables for long runs, cable management labels, etc. Most importantly, have fun as your budget allows!

BJC is more expensive than monoprice because they are using cable stock manufactured in the US. They are also a very small company, less than 12 I believe. They do not move much volume compared to monoprice.

Basic economies of scale are at play here. BJC makes a quality product with materials manufactured in the US, monoprice also makes a quality product, albeit cheaper. Its a digital signal, so if it works, it works.

Scale is part of it. I have both type of cables and nothing more expensive. BlueJeans is more of a custom fabricator - you can specify the exact length you need, mix and match terminations (for example spades and bananas on the same speaker cable). They also tell you exactly which cable type they are using. I tend to Use Monoprice for their slim HDMI cables, with which I have had no issues, and BlueJeans for custom length basic interconnects and speaker wire. KnuKonceptz also make a good quality inexpensive speaker cable.

Same here. BJ is great for custom cables, especially interconnects. For off-the-shelf cables, I use Monoprice. Cables from either company are very good if not excellent quality for workmanship, materials and performance. The nice thing about BJ is that they give you a plethora of info about the materials their using.

Indeed! Failure points are typically the terminations, which are more likely to fail the more they are messed with, or if insufficient to begin with and routed under stress.

Nothing. If the cable delivers what you are expecting, or what it is rated to do, then you're a happy camper!

My personal experience and observations have been that even cheap cables can be awesome and perform as well as pricier ones. However, cheaper, thinner cable tend to have less robust terminations. For the average Joe, probably not an issue. If one is doing a lot of plugging and unplugging, not a bad idea to have a sturdier termination, especially with HDMI cables - in fact, the ONLY cables with which I have ever had failures - due to the terminations.

BJC and Monoprice, for my experiences, are both great companies, reasonably priced. Sure, I paid "a lot" more for my Belden-FE series cables than for similar offerings from other companies, but even so - at the prices I paid for what I got, bargain - especially considering how many complaints/problems are out there surrounding HDMI issues, quite often the cables being the culprits for whatever reason.

Yeah,I don't get that. I've almost ripped my damn receivers sub pre out right out of its enclosure from messing with tight Mediabridge RCA interconnects and also accidentally bent my TV's HDMI input from using too thick a Monoprice cable without ample support at the connection point before so this makes perfect sense to me. Checking speaker wire banana plugs from time to time is a good idea though as they tend to loosen up a bit over time but for the most part "set and forget" is a good motto for cabling.

Seems quite a contrast to me which is why I started this thread. Being redundant, reading the statements like you just made over the years really surprised me when I saw the price contrast.

Now consider:

Audioquest
6.5 foot, 3.5mm stereo to 3.5mm stereo
$29.75

Seems to be a disconnect here somewhere.

What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.
