This includes two cables as the picture shows. The first is a small 3 inch cable Male to Female, and the advantage to it is that the Male side is very low profile like the OEM iPhone headphone connector so that it fits down into the jack when you're using a case. The problem I have is that many 3rd party headphone jacks are too large to fit down into the hole when you have a case on your iPhone. The 2nd cable is a retractable Male to Male cable. The ends in it are not as low profile and don't fit in the hole size of the case, but with the 1st cable included it works for what I needed. I actually wish I could order just the smaller cable by itself.
