I see your point now. And yes, there are some out there that are so cheap that they will not perform well. I would rather spend a bit more on a manufacturer that uses quality connectors over ones that would use lousy connectors that would break easily or come loose. Your point is taken.
Right, exactly. I mean, just that makes it worth it often in a practical sense and some benefits go along with that, whether it's enough for you to perceive or not. Another thing is, with 3.5mm cables, you often don't get to choose gauge so all the things mentioned go hand-in-hand.
