I bought this one to build a cable for connecting my audio interface with my headphone amplifier.
It did not take much time because the Neutrik NP3 X is well manufactured and easy to solder.
It workes just fine and I never had a problem with it. I would buy it again for another cable.
I use Neutrik connectors almost exclusively because they are a great design - super strong, well shaped tips that make a good connection to the socket, grippy but not bulky and a superb cable strain relief. They are also easy to work with, soldering them is a joy. You simply cannot go wrong with Neutrik connectors.
The design is vastly superior to cheaper connectors.
The way the body is connected to the tip, with the strain relief pushing both parts together, there is simply no way, this connector will open by itself. Also the strain relief is very long, with a gradient crossover between cable and connector, which makes it very good in the long run.
As for NP2 X: Neutrik plugs are more expensive than most of the contenders, and they will set you back quite a bit if you're buying bulk. However, I've had enough no-name connectors fail on me through the years to appreciate the build quality of Neutriks, and I will try to get ahold of Neutriks whenever I'm going to solder my own cables.
TRSs are not as easy to solder as XLRs, but absolutely manageable.
Overall, a high quality product at a right price.
I have and will continue to buy Neutrik sockets and connectors as they are of a consistently high standard.
Every component part of the jack is robust and up to the rigours of studio and performance life.
The soldering to the ground and ring terminals is the only tricky part of this particular connector (as opposed to xlr terminals) but that is more down to my own soldering capability, but it is manageable and the surrounding plastic insulation is very resilient to the occasional slip of the soldering iron!
