Our take on the Monster Twist-on Banana Connectors

by Kristen Schaub
Monster Cable

If your receiver or speakers have banana-compatible binding posts, these connectors are super-easy to plug in and they give you solid, dependable contact. Monster Cable's banana connectors feature 24k hard-gold contacts for maximum signal transfer and corrosion resistance. The nine leaf springs in the pin increase the contact pressure for a secure connection. The flexible insulators can bend in all directions for easy installation, and the connectors twist on to your cables by hand — no tools needed.

Degrade in a few years

Written By John, Frederick, MD on Wednesday, December 29, 2010
As the other reviewer mentioned....
I had installed these on my surround speaker cables several years ago. I recently went
to move the speakers and noticed that the rubber had decinitegrated and tore from just
sitting there. No constant flexing, just from age. I would highly recommend stepping up
to Monster's "quick lock self-crimping" bananas instead - well worth the small price
increase but longer lasting quality.

Cheap material = doesn't last long

Written By mmgrad, CA on Friday, January 22, 2010
At firs, the rubber insulated connectors feel good at first, but, I have had them for a few years now, and the heat and/or age of the connectors have cause them to pretty much tear apart and deteriorate. They almost crumble to the touch and start falling apart.

It still works, but they just look terrible. And for the price you pay for these, you would think they would last a lifetime.
