    cheap AUX cable vs Brand AUX Cable

    i bought this Aux cable the AUX in sounds horrible on both my ipod and my mytouch 4g.

    im reading some statements that the stock AUX is bad regardless and that some say it sounds great

    so my question is if i go out and buy a monster cable or any good cable out there would i just be wasting my money?

    any suggestions on an AUX cable thats been working well for you?

    never buy anything monster! just throwing money in the trash for a name brand.

    Shop monoprice that's where audio professionals buy from and they are higher quality and are cheaper than any other! I buy every cable I have ever needed from them and they are always the best quality and last forever.

    I bought off brand and it sounds really good in the stock aux port.

    br0 get the monster so you can have gold plated everything lol. actually saw a monster fiber optic cable advertising the gold plated connection which would be great except that fiber uses light and the gold plated shit does nothing. Monsters a ripoff
