I the process of filling out the return I notice in the features description that there was a silicone nipple covering the end of the cable to protect the plug end when not attached. Once I removed it it fit as described.
Maybe for people that do not know, a simple "remove nipple before insertion" note with the product would be appropriate.
The Mediabridge, for instance, the connector on two different cables broke / cracked in the same way. I was able to super glue it back together, but the fact they failed in the same way said a lot. I actually had to pull the broken connector out of the port on my amp with a pair of needlenose pliers! (be sure to unplug the unit!)
The Monster cables connector became loose in the socket over time, plus the connector became disconnected from the cable over time.
These Amazon cables - the connector end has become worn / degraded from just a few connect / disconnect cycles, to where the cable is now loose in the port. This is not due to abuse, it is due to a very soft plastic end that is not made for any sort of durability.
The best luck I have had so far with Toslink? Bluerigger - their cables have not suffered from any of the same issues mentioned above... they have seen the same amount of use, and work just like the day I bought them.
THanks for reading.
But I can't recommend this.
Connector does not securely stay connected to optical output on Vizio E70-E3 and soundbar.
I wanted to use my home theater system's audio capabilities to enhance TV/movie enjoyment, so I needed this type cable to accomplish that.
The only problem was the cable came w/ very inadequate installation instructions.
I ended up going online/googling info to help me install the cable.
It came w/ protective plastic covers on the ends, but w/ no instructions to remove those BEFORE attempting the install, I was being puzzled by the difficulty inserting the cable into the respective ports.
Mind you, this was my FIRST experience w/ this type cable.
After finding others had experienced the same problem, & posted their trials, I was able to complete the install w/ minimal fuss.
The quality of the sound that the cable provided from the TV to the soundbar was AMAZING compared to a cheap RCA connection (which is what I had before getting this). Highly recommended if you want to get the most out of your devices.
Bought a new 55" TCL TV. I dig it; works perfectly for me. But these optical cables don't work with my TV, apparently. They certainly don't lock in solidly like they should. They come loose and just don't work. I wiggled and pushed them in, and broke the little friggin optical door on my TV. So apparently, I'll hafta buy a different cable and hot glue the darn things in.
Lesson learned. Before you buy a TV, make sure you know what sort of audio output it has on it. And buy the best optical cables that you can, and hope for the best. Yay progress.......

Importante lo primero que tienes que tener en cuenta es que las conexiones vienen protegidas con una funda de silicona, hay que quitarla antes de conectarla a los aparatos e introducir hasta escuchar el click, cuando lo haces se enciende el cable.
Lo compré porque tengo un home cinema Pionner con unos cuantos añetes y lo queria conectar a un televisor 4K nuevo y era el unica conexión existente entre la tv y el home cinema compatible ya que no tiene HDMI. No tiene misterio ninguno conectas un extremo del cable a la salida optica del TV y el otro extremo a la entra optica del home cinema o barra de sonida que tengas, comprueba que al introducirlo suela el tipico click y se ilumina el calbe y listo. Totalmente recomendable. Viene bien embalado y con las protecciones en las conexiones, y a buen precio. No es necesario que te gastes un pastizal en otros cables mas caros por que al final solo pagas el marketing de las marcas. Con este vas mas que sobrado.
Si te ha gustado mi comentario votalo para que mas gente pueda leerlo y asi darle sentido real a las valoraciones de los productos
When I tried it, initially disappointed because the sound was intermittent joining TV to Soundbar.
By looking on the interweb, I discovered that it might have protective covers.
When I looked closely, it did.
They are very small and translucent and so difficult to spot if you're not looking for them.
Once they were removed it all worked fine
