I finally got annoyed with having to insert the Headcandy Hesh 2.0 lead in and having to pull it back by about a millimetre due to the extra mic connection not allowing an immediate good connection to the PC/Blue-Yeti. The headphones need a slim plug so I thought I would opt for an Amazon basics lead, as I haven’t been disappointed with any of their own range. The stepped collar is great for iPhone and iPads with cases on and the plug is slim enough (just) to not cause problems with the Hesh 2.0’s.
Cable feels slightly more rubber than plastic and does not tangle. The collar immediately preceding the plug is about 6mm diameter and is about 3mm in depth from plug to silver collar with Amazon basics branding. overall plug length is about 40mm with a solid “bung”to the cable. 1.28m tip to tip.
