Certified performance

Despite what you may have read elsewhere, all HDMI cables are not the same.

These cables offer premium performance without the premium price.

Certified performance

Despite what you may have read elsewhere, all HDMI cables are not the same. Crutchfield's Premium High Speed HDMI cables are certified to handle the highest-quality signals currently available, including 4K Ultra HD video and HDR (High Dynamic Range). These cables offer premium performance without the premium price.

To help A/V enthusiasts get the most from their 4K gear, the creators of HDMI technology have developed a rigorous cable testing and authentication process: The Premium HDMI Cable Certification Program. Cables are tested to make sure they support the full 18 Gbps bandwidth provided by the HDMI 2.0 specification. Plus, an EMI test ensures that cables minimize interference with wireless signals. Finally, every length of every model line must pass the tests to receive certification.

The certification program also includes a special authentication label placed on every certified product. It's a response to all the counterfeit and no-name cables on the market that claim performance that they don't actually deliver.

Should you get a Premium HDMI cable?

At lengths of a few meters or less, any well-made "high-speed" HDMI cable should work fine in most 4K applications. But if you're connecting an Ultra HD Blu-ray player to a 4K TV — especially a longer run — a Crutchfield Premium HDMI cable will guarantee flawless performance.


Product highlights:

  • latest HDMI version 2.0 features:
    • supports 4K/60Hz and HDR (18 Gbps maximum bandwidth)
    • bi-directional Ethernet communication with compatible components
    • ARC (Audio Return Channel) for sending Dolby® Digital sound from the TV back to an A/V receiver
  • 30-gauge conductors for dependable signal transfer
  • durable PVC jacket
  • CL2-rated for safe in-wall installation
    • cable meets all CL2 requirements, but rating is not printed on jacket
  • gold-plated contacts resist corrosion
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
  • MFR # HDMI6

What's in the box:

  • 6' HDMI cable

Is this hdcp 2.2?
[ Greg  Nov 11, 2019 ]
1 answer
Yes its HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0b. Its perfect for 4k HDR. However if you are going 8k then you need HDCP 2.3 and HDMI 2.1
[ Forrest  Nov 27, 2019 ]
What is the width of the hdmi head? I need to slide it into conduit.
[ DOUGLAS  Apr 19, 2019 ]
1 answer
The width of the head is 1/2 ". It's and excellent hdmi cable.
[ RAFAEL  Apr 26, 2019 ]
I do not see any arrows on the connectors. Does it matter which end you attach to the receiver and television?
[ Jonathan  May 26, 2019 ]
4 answers
No it doesn't
[ GENE  May 27, 2019 ]
It doesnt matter which end of the cable goes into the receiver or tv.
[ Forrest  May 26, 2019 ]
[ BILL  May 26, 2019 ]
does not matter
[ Joel  May 26, 2019 ]
Are these HDMI cables maid in China?
[ Patrick  Aug 04, 2022 ]
1 answer
These cables are manufactured in China, yes.
[ Thomas  Aug 05, 2022 ]  Staff
Need to make a sharp right bend at cable plug from back side of devices. Will this cable be able to do it without loosing signal?
[ GREGG  Jul 28, 2021 ]
1 answer
Cable plug is strong, you won't be able to bend it without breaking it. I recommend using a HDMI folding connector like the Philips SWV3475H/17 HDMI Foldable Adapter so you can turn 90 degrees up or down and connect the cable to it.
[ GERMAN  Jul 29, 2021 ]
Why aren't the cables printed with CL2 on the cable?
[ WILLIAM  Jan 30, 2019 ]
1 answer
I asked myself when l originally purchased the cables but they are very well made and worked perfectly for 4k viewing. And the best part of it at fraction of the cost.
[ ENRIQUE  Jan 30, 2019 ]
Is cable flexible to fit behind a tv that will be on a tilt mount on a fireplace?
[ Darren  Dec 09, 2017 ]
7 answers
yes, the cable is flexible. I had to bring it around an obstacle, and it is fine. Be sure to get enough length. Better a little too much than not enough.
[ Mark  Dec 10, 2017 ]
The plug on this cable will protrude 1 5/8" from your tv,and you will need another 1/2" for 90 degree bend in wire. Hope this helps- Larry
[ LAWRENCE  Dec 10, 2017 ]
Yes it is. Mine is behind my receiver and is easily hidden from sight.
[ Laura  Dec 10, 2017 ]
probably, as you will need about 2.5 inches
[ martin  Dec 10, 2017 ]
[ DAVE  Dec 09, 2017 ]
Yes the cable is flexible.
[ BILL  Dec 09, 2017 ]
It is flexible bi I would recommend a 90 degree adapter that way theirs no stress on the wire and tv hdmi conexión
[ Jesus  Dec 09, 2017 ]
Does this cable also have HDCP 2.2 compatibility?
[ RYAN  Dec 09, 2017 ]
3 answers
yes and it is well made and works great
[ Mark  Dec 12, 2017 ]
The cable supports 4K/60hz and HDR-I'd suggest buy one and see if it works and if not return it. You can also ask a Crutchfield advisor
[ DOUGLAS  Dec 12, 2017 ]
Yes, all premium high speed HDMI cables will work just fine.
[ MARK  Dec 12, 2017 ]

[ DoubleD  Oct 26, 2020 ]

No problems with Dolby Vision or 4k. Good product.
[ ARIC  Oct 27, 2020 ]
I am no authority on on cables for digital transmission, but mine works fine and I'd be surprised if it does not meet your needs.
[ HOWARD G.  Oct 27, 2020 ]

[ Robert  Apr 07, 2020 ]

No lo sé.. Lo lamento. Mi tv es Samsung
[ SANTIAGO  Apr 08, 2020 ]
I don't have an Apple tv, but I assume that it will. Best of luck.
[ MICHAEL R.  Apr 07, 2020 ]
I'm hoping somebody can give me a 100% honest answer! If I bought this Crutchfield HDMI cable and hooked everything up, would I really find a noticable difference in picture or audio quality if I were to switch to a $200.00+ AudioQuest Carbon cable or something similar to that? I'm sure there would be a difference between some super cheap, no name HDMI cable and a quality made, brand name cable, but is there really that much of a difference between a quality made cable and an extra quality made cable?!
[ LAWRENCE S  Sep 25, 2019 ]
10 answers
my 2 cents would be probably not. high quality power cords? yes. high quality balanced or unbalanced interconnect analog cables? yes $25 HDMI vs $100+ HDMI? No
[ THOMAS  Oct 13, 2019 ]
Hi Lawrence, thank you for your question. Depending on the length of cable you need, as well as if you will need a bend in your cable, that could create a need for you to check out some higher end cables that are built for those applications. The Crutchfield HDMI cable meets industry standards, offers exceptional picture quality, 4k and HDR compatible, and offers bi-directional Ethernet communication with other compatible components, as well as a CL2 rating which is safe for in-wall use. Feel free to chat with an Advisor online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695, if you would like to discuss your needs, to see if our HDMI cable will be best for your needs.
[ JESSICA  Oct 13, 2019 ]  Staff
I don't believe the difference is worth the extra money. Completely satisfied with my purchase
[ DANIEL  Oct 13, 2019 ]
previously , I bought the $149. cable. Super thick ,it had almost no flexibility and so heavy it stressed the HDMI socket every time I inserted it.Then I got this one .Happy ending with No noticeable difference although it may not last as long.
[ brandon  Oct 12, 2019 ]
I am happy with my crutchfield cable. However, I've never purchased an audioquest cable so i am unable to make that direct comparison. But honestly, as long as the cable is of good quality, and has a the highest data rate i don't think there will be much noticeable differences, but that is just my opinion.
[ wesley  Oct 11, 2019 ]
Generally speaking, you'd be wasting your money. Crutchfield's cables are tested and certified, and their build quality is great. The only difference between a $200+ AudioQuest Carbon cable and the Crutchfield cable is that if you buy the former you're making some AudioQuest executive's car payment for them.
[ Beryl  Oct 11, 2019 ]
Deferent. Picture some, Audio a lot better if you have Hi end sound system.
[ WAHIB  Oct 11, 2019 ]
I haven't tried a high end high priced cable but I think the source of content would make the biggest impact first. As an example I have a high end TV. Picture quality from cable company using HDMI was good to crappy. WiFi Netflix was better. Over the air antenna with coaxial cable can be really good. If you have a really high end system with an exellent 4K player and you're not happy maybe you could eek out a little more resolution with the best cable but I'm not sure until you do a side by side
[ John  Oct 11, 2019 ]
I don't think so those Crutchfield cables are premium cables and can handle 4K transmissions. I have more expansive HDMI cables and could not tell one from the other, my advice save some money and go wild with those cables, they are more than adequate.
[ Jean-Claude  Oct 11, 2019 ]
I assume there isn't much difference. Enjoy your system and don't worry too much.
[ PHILIP  Oct 11, 2019 ]
Is this 4K 18 gps hdmi cable for GPS in my Honda CRV ??
[ MONA G.  Nov 26, 2018 ]

The HDMI cable is for connecting HD & 4K video sources to compatible receivers & displays (TVs). It does not provide any GPS capabilities in a vehicle. For additional assistance and personalized recommendations, feel free to contact us directly by phone or through our online chat service:

I don't know.
[ David  Nov 26, 2018 ]
The cable install man suggested component cables instead of HDMI from cable box to 65 in. Sony> Is this correct ?
[ JASON  Mar 06, 2018 ]
4 answers
There are purists that insist that component RGB is the way to go but I have never seen a visible difference. Also this is an all in one cable. You do not have to use a completely separate audio solution, it all travels on the same cable. Also HD and above will require an HDMI 2.0 or above to not throttle the video back to 1024. With that said, I have always found the delay between the source and the display while the handshake is going on between them annoying. If you have the component cables already I would hook them up and see for yourself. If not then I suggest that a high quality HDMI will probably suit your needs better. (Full Disclosure: I have a receiver with 7 HDMI inputs and an HDMI output to my 65" 4k TV in my home theatre/computer/gaming setup and I use this exact cable for all 8 connections so I am biased toward them)
[ Paul  Mar 06, 2018 ]
I would say no.The HDMI cable is for HD.Good luck.
[ David  Mar 06, 2018 ]
No. A Single HDMI cable will give you multi channel audio and the best video, it is the simplest and best, so anything else doesn't make sense
[ THOMAS  Mar 06, 2018 ]
HDMI carries both picture and sound, component cables only the picture. So if you use component cables you will also have to run an audio cable, digital or analog, for sound to your tv or receiver. It would be helpful to know why he'd suggest this. Is your tv an older model?
[ JAMES  Mar 06, 2018 ]
How is the bi-directional Ethernet communication this HDMI cable has, used between components? If device 1 has Ethernet, and I connect device 2 with this cable, does device 2 also now have Ethernet connectivity? I'm not clear on how this feature is used.
[ Sam  Nov 28, 2017 ]
1 answer
If you could find gear that could send Ethernet signal via HDMI cable, then I'd expect this device to have a menu to tell it to get its signal this way. However, we have yet to have a device that could use this ability. Right now, its part of the HDMI standards and I'd say will always be part of it because that Ethernet ability was added with an earlier version of HDMI. Maybe one day we will see gear use it! My Bio:

Is this 4K 18 gps hdmi cable for 4K players ???
[ Vikram  Nov 18, 2017 ]
5 answers
Judging by the look of the 4K discs and UHD streaming on my new Vizio I would say "Yes".
[ JAMES  Nov 21, 2017 ]
Yes it is. I got it specifically for a 4k ultra HD Blu-ray player. Works great!
[ wesley  Nov 20, 2017 ]
Yes, hooked between my LG OLED and my Marantz receiver
[ Shawn  Nov 20, 2017 ]
Yes. It also works for less demanding HDMI applications. Here the term "Premium HDMI" isn't simply marketing/branding, it denotes certified performance in accordance with the Premium HDMI Cable Certification Program from the creators of HDMI. Click on "Overview" and you'll get more information.
[ Beryl  Nov 20, 2017 ]
Yes it is.
