Stereo Audio 1/8 inch (3.5 mm) Mini Plug Patch Cable, Male to Male - 3 Feet If there’s one patch cable that every hobbyist - or anyone with audio equipment - used to have stacked up in drawers, boxes and cabinets, it was the male to male mini plug cable.

It was used as commonly in radio stations as it was in family rooms. You couldn’t do much of anything without a “male to male mini.” We’re in now in an era where the wonders of HDMI and DVI have opened our eyes to how much patch cables can do. Even so, there remain many reasons why you need a good old male to male mini in your cable arsenal. Any number of today’s components and devices still use these 1/8 inch connectors for audio input and output; iPods and MP3 players, CD players, computer sound cards, many small speakers, digital or analog tape decks, audio mixers, and all sorts of older devices all still have the small, familiar mini jack.
