I only play wired, wireless is neat and all, but it's just not that important to me. However, I cannot find a good micro usb wire. I've ordered 6 different types off amazon and ALL break right near where it plugs into the controller.

Any wired gamers here recommend a really good cable? It's driving me nuts having to replace these things so often. I end up just adding them onto Amazon orders that I need like $10 to get free shipping on.

Thanks for any suggestions

The cable that came with my Elite controller is pretty snazzy. Long and braided.

Failing that, the cable that comes with the play n charge kit is good enough. Good length and seems durable.

Bump for more suggestions.

What happened to post #2? The threaded one he posted looked pretty decent but the link is gone now :\

What are you doing to your cables? I've never had one break.

I would try something like this:

Not sure if that is the right angle though, but if it is it may hold up better since it's going down and not out and down.

Here's one where you choose between down and up angle:

and this one is a little longer

wouldn't work, the bottom of the port faces up on these controllers

so this wire would be going up then down, putting more stress on both the plug and port

That was my post, but I felt it was too expensive after looking elsewhere. It was a KontrolFreeks cable.

I wasn't sure, so in the next post I linked one that lets you choose which way the angle is.
I think there's something to using a 90 degree angle plug for these kinds of situations, I started using an angled plug for my chat cable because my chat hangs to the ground instead of going to my headset, and it's been working great, usually they fizzle out after awhile.
