Anyone that tries to tell me they make a digital cable that can transmit a "superior" quality sound is full of Sh_t and loses all credibility in my book. Being an electronics engineer for for 35 years qualifies me to tell you that if a digital signal simply gets to where it is going the signal is perfect. No amount of engineering, gold, or BS will make that cable do it's job any better.
So while "ultra-high bandwidth, superior RF noise rejection, all-encompassing shielding, jitter reducing, and timing error free might be technically true, they are of no consequence to anyone that has a working USB cable of any brand. Yes, jitter can deform digital audio signals on their way down the USB cable, but as long as the 1' and 0's are distinguishable there will be no impact on the resulting analog conversion.
This holds true for all "Monster" and other high dollar digital cables, such as HDMI, DVI-D, etc. I've said it a million times, "If your digital signal is getting to where it is going, it is a PERFECT signal. Period"
I have used many high end analog cables on my analog A/V equipment for many years, but I use the cheapest cable that works for all digital needs.
