AmazonBasics 3.5mm Male to Male Stereo Audio Cable [4 ft / 1.2 m]

Amazon Cable

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.

Skullcandy Hesh 2.0 Headphones

The headphones are great, mind you I’m not an audio expert, but they sound excellent, they are certainly comfy and won’t break the bank when you can pick certain designs up for around £30 (RRP £50). I was surprised that they come with a detachable cable that includes an in-line mic/controller, whilst this is great from my iPhone it can play a little havoc with some systems such as my PC or Blue Yeti whereby I have to just retract the plug ever so slightly to hear the audio fully.

Certainly a worthy investment for the podcasts.
