The 3. 5mm (1/8") stereo TRS connector is more commonly known as the Headphone Jack on portable mp3 players and mobile phones
This cable features a male 3. 5mm stereo (TRS) plug on each end with molded connector housings and strain relief boots
The conductors are 22AWG and each conductor is shield to prevent EMI or RFI interference from entering your audio system
The 3. 5mm (1/8") stereo TRS connector is more commonly known as the Headphone Jack on portable mp3 players and mobile phones. This cable features a male 3. 5mm stereo (TRS) plug on one end and a female 3. 5mm stereo jack on the other end each with molded connector housings and strain relief boots. Each connector is gold-plated to ensure smooth corrosion-free connections. The cable is made of heavy-duty coaxial cable for each conductor. The conductors are 22AWG and each conductor is shield to prevent EMI or RFI interference from entering your audio system. The cable is 12mm x 6mm thick while the connector housings are 41mm long x 15mm diameter. Because of their size and weight these cables are best suited for more permanent connections such as from your PC to your sound system. If you want something more suitable for portable applications please try one of our standard 3. 5mm audio cables.

This is a VERY high quality cable. if you look closely at the cable, it actually has two conductors, and is something like half an inch wide. if you are using 3.5mm connectors to transfer more current than usually goes through 3.5mm plugs, this can handle it. Also, in theory, this cable should have a lower impedance, meaning that more power gets from the source to the destination than would in a cheap 3.5mm cable.
on the other hand, the cable is THICK, it IS NOT ROUND, and it is STIFF.
For me the above cons were deal breakers for what i ordered the cable for, but i kept it anyway because of the amazing quality of the cable. i will use it in a home theater setup or something.
I highly recommend this cable if you dont care about the size and stiffness. It is infinitely better than what i expected to get for the price.
oh, and the rubber protection on the conductors is really thick, so this may work out for industrial/outdoor purposes. heck,...
Will only work with some types of headphones. 1/8" (3.5mm) headphone cord tips that aren't long enough don't appear to touch ground, resulting in the left-right channels being in uneven balance and not sounding correct at all. For example, Beyerdynamic DT-880's connector would work fine and this extension cord has good shielding, but only when the plug fits. Any other headphone I tried failed, including cheap My Little Pony children headphones, medium-end Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear and PSB M4U2 cans.
The range of the headphone ohm impedence didn't matter (why would it?), so my only conclusion was whether it was a "snug" fit or not on the female end of the cord.
TL;DR - This extension cord has good shielding, but your headphone's tip may need Viagra for their relationship to work.
I bought this cable to connect all our earbuds and headphones which came with tiny plugs, to the gigantic female headphone jack on our aging stereo receiver, and also to reach across the room, where it may be subject to occasional abuse by the cat (when I am not looking.) This cable satisfies both requirements. I was impressed by the heft of this cable--each "side" is approximately the thickness of a good quality coax cable. Bonded together, the two halves are over 1/2 inch wide. I am not an audio expert, but I don't believe that this highly-shielded cable would loose much in the way of sound quality either. So far, Phineas the Cat has been stymied by this cable as well, though I have been keeping a close watch on our investment
