Overpricing would be acceptable for good products

I bought three jack plugs, one after the other. First I thought that I'm not using a good solder, which wasn't the case. Stereo was inverted on the jacks, the ground line would move when it should have been the most fixed part on them and to top it off, the jacks were around e3.6.

But... I really wanted to fix my headphones so I went ahead and bought them, hoping that the next one wold be better than the one before. My bad for purchasing three ones (two the same and one different).

I later purchased a german plug for e1 from a specialised company in Dublin. Yes, one euro. Works fantastic, it took solder like nothing I've seen before and it's got a golden connector aswell, for a cherry on top.

I'd give it two stars since the lads in there were helpful and glad to be of assistance but the actual products are so bad that I can't do that. Maybe when they'll do a 75% discount on every item in there I might consider giving the store a better rating. Until then, stay away folks!
