Review of Belkin’s MIXIT↑™ Metallic AUX Cable
It was probably about my fourth time unsuccessfully digging through the same bag of old cables before I got in touch with Belkin for the one I really needed: an auxiliary 3.5 mm cable to plug my phone into the back of some speakers.
The look of the cable is unremarkable, but the only person I’ve ever met who cared about aesthetics in cables this small was the guy at Radio Shack who tried to convince my old college roommate and me that we were idiots for buying a pink aux cable when we could spend a dollar more for a black one. (We rocked the pink.)
I’ve been making good use of this Belkin AUX cable, especially while in the kitchen. It’s durable and does exactly what it should.
Here are the summary features, from Belkin:
- Auxiliary cable connects any two devices with 3.5mm port
- Sleek cable with metallic finish
- Available in five colors to match your device
- Designed to withstand heavy use
- 4-foot length ideal for use everywhere
It works at home, it works in the car, and it coils up nicely for transport. I’ve never had the audio cut out or give feedback while listening via the cable.
At four feet long, it’s all the length you need–not too much, not too little.
Given its durability, the $20 asking price is fair, though some buyers may want to seek out more budget-conscious options–even if they are pink.
But I expect to make use of this (stylish gold) cable for many more hours of audio.
Thanks to Belkin for the review sample, so I could write this review. Receiving the cable for review purposes did not influence the content or nature of this write-up.
