Hi I am looking for 3.5mm male - male cable ... went to monoprice and there are like 6 different kinds.


One of them says premium 22AWG ...


What are the rest - are they all 22AWG?


Thanks

I don't get your question because every cable listed here:

http://www.monoprice.com/Category?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021812


is 22 gauge. Given the prices why not shoot the works and get their good stuff? The most expensive 3' cable I see is $3! What is shipping going to cost? ;-)


The cheapest ones may skimp on the copper in the cable they are made out of. Given the amount of current involved in this connection, its more of a durability question than a SQ question.

Resistance is not a concern with interconnects, only with speaker cables. Therefore there's no advantage to larger than 22ga.

I am buying it to replace my stock headphone cable (Fidelio X1), as it is 3.5mm male to 5.5mm male (and it looks very cumbersome)


The website says their premium cables are not for mobile device use as it is also very cumbersome


Hence wondering if the other lighter stuff are as good
