The iLine Mobile Music Cable Kit is a set of six very useful musician’s cables. The cables include a mono output adapter, an input output extension, a standard stereo aux cable, a 3.5mm stereo headphone splitter, an RCA output adapter, and a mono output splitter. It also includes a toolbag-like bag to carry all the wires in. The bag is rollable allowing for easy storage. Many musicians have had the pain of losing or missing most if not all of the cables included and this “Swiss Army Knife” of music cables is sure to please any musician. The cable set is sold by IK Multimedia for $59.99, less money than what you would pay for one of these wires elsewhere. Let’s see if this pack of cables are for you musicians out there.
There is not much to say about the aesthetics of these cables, since the aesthetics don’t matter as much as how they work but I will mention a few things. First, the cables are color coded for your convenience, that way, once you learn the colors, you know which cable are which with just a glance. Second, the cable are made well. I don’t think they will fray for some time. Third, the carrying case that comes with it is cheaply made but it does the job, it stores all the wires and it rolls up so you can store it easily. Fourth, the tips of the cables are plated in 24K gold to prevent corrosion and improve sound quality, which it does well. Overall, the aesthetic of the cables is excellent.
The iLine cables have great quality. The sound is either not hindered by the wires or benefits from the wires. These wires that every musician should have in his or her arsenal. These cables are not cheap junk that come with cheap junk that you buy off of China Wholesale, these cables are high quality. This is signified by the use of high quality gold plating and high quality, very pure copper used inside it. I also appreciate the balance of Mono and stereo cables. These cables compliment the other products that IK Multimedia sells so if you have their other products, I would recommend these cables. But even if you don’t these cables still come in handy. I would have liked to have seen some cables a bit longer, especially the Mono Output Adapter, but for your average musician who has everything packed together in a tight space, it is no big deal. Overall this a great pack of cables.
-Great quality cables
-Great sound from the cables
-Carrying pouch could have been made better
-Some cables could be longer
-Would have appreciated a male/female headphone splitter
Overall, these are great cables and I can highly recommend them to any musician who finds themselves without cables when they are needed. This “Swiss Army” Cable pack receives 4 and a half stars from me.
