I grabbed a pair of these to replace the 1/4" cables I was using on my monitors, to kill off the very last of the background hum I was getting (which it has, I'm happy to report).

Has anyone used these cables before? I wasn't sure what to expect when I got them, but while they came in a USPS Priority paper mailer in a folded up bit of cardboard for protection, in essentially unmarked plastic bags with "Made in China" stickers on them, the actual cables feel pretty good - solid-feeling metal connectors at each end, gold pins and screws (which can't do a thing electronically but is still a nice cosmetic touch), and really substantial, heavy duty feeling cable. They look sort of like off-brand Monster cables, I guess, minus all the annoying lawsuit stuff.
These two won't really be subject to heavy wear and tear, running from my interface to my monitors, but they felt good enough I'd probably grab an XLR-to-XLR from these guys if I needed additional cables for mics and whatnot - they felt solid, and the price is tough to argue with.
