    "Just works"
    Pros - Right angle connectors, Gold plated, Oyaide cable
    Cons - Cable might even be too thick as it is quite stiff, More expensive than I would like, the UE900 cable costs the same amount
    Great quality to be expected of a Fiio product, the cable works as intended and feels nice in the hand. There`s no strain relief on the 30pin connector, perhaps it`s to increase pliability? Otherwise I appreciate the use of right angle connectors which are great for stacking. Since I use it with a Nano 3g and a Fiio A1, the cable is perhaps a bit thick and stiff, though I`m sure it will pair well with a larger iPod/iPhone.

    "Perfect for portable use"
    Pros - Price, size
    Cons - Nothing
    FiiO has become a renowned company over the past few years. The offer really good product with even better prices, making tem a real bargain!
    Made in China, but with European standard of quality!
     
    There is nothing much to say about the L, other than that, simply put, it is the best choice possible for portable use. The L-shaped plug offers better connection and is more resistant than the normal one.

    "a good connector, but some things need to be fixed or redisigned"
    Pros - sound quality
    Cons - bad noise protection
    I have checked this connector on several earphones. Some noises were clearly heard (like cracking). It can be fixed by wrapping the cabel in the foil, which should be held with a tape or a thread.

    "Exactly what it is supposed to do"
    Pros - Low profile, exactly the length needed, sturdy
    Cons - Know the length of the cable you're buying, a bit pricey
    Fantastic product for doing what it is supposed to. For those who do not know what its purpose is; it is meant to skip the iPod/iPhone's internal Headphone AMP so you can use your external AMP to the best of it's ability. I used it with JDSLabs CMoyBB to my DT770Pro 250ohm and did see a reasonable difference. 
     
    I would recommend for i-device users who want to get proper amping.

    "Great little cord"
    Pros - It's not longer than it needs to be,
    Cons - No way to charge and play (the L11 has that, but it's a larger connector)
    I think the only thing that would have made this better is if it came with the DAC.

    "nothing overcomplicated, nothing underdone"
    Pros - it improves sound quality when used in conjunction with a decent amp
    Cons - could either be lower profile and have a snap in, button release like the l3
    it is simple it does exactly what it was designed to do and nothing else. the build however is incredible. i held it up to the l1 my freind has and the difference in the quality and size of cable etc is night and day. if you need a LOD it is great for portable rigs but doesn't do anything other LODs do, it just seems like it will outlast your needs for it.
