This is a terrible cable. The 1/4" jack is molded and of dubious quality. The cable itself is thin and remains permanently kinked after taking it out of the package. It's also MUCH too long for any normal use. I can't believe Sennheiser would go to the trouble of making such a nice, robust wireless system and then skimp on the cable this way! Such a shame. If anyone knows of a higher-quality replacement, please let me know!
