Mono TS plugs are shown here for reference only. The TRS cables are measured the same way. The typical tolerance for the measured length is (-0.0 / +0.5″). Therefore a 12 inch cable would be about 12.0″ to 12.5″ long measured as in the descriptions below. Metric Length Conversion: cm / 2.54 = inches.
Therefore a combination of right angle and straight plugs would be measured from the center of the right angle to the shoulder of the straight plug as shown.
Mono plugs are shown in the upper photo for reference only. TRS cables are orientated the same way. One of the options is to have an “opposing / asymmetrical / S-shape” right angle plug configuration. The right angled plugs can be orientated in the opposite direction along the length of the cable, viewed when the cable is laying in a straight line. In some situations, opposing right angles let you avoid having to twist it into position. Please study this option carefully to avoid any confusion.
Top: Opposing “S” plug configuration.
Center: Standard right angle configuration.
Bottom: One right angle and one straight plug. Right angle orientation is insignificant when one end is straight.
In this lower photo, there’s two examples of TRS cables that have the Opposing “S” plug configuration. The “S” shape is more easily viewed when the cable is in somewhat of a straight line such as the cable marked in white.

Mono TS plugs are shown here for reference only. The TRS cables have shrink tubing in the same way. Here are some example showing eight of the strain relief colors we offer installed under the plug housings. Black tubing installed OVER the housings (not shown here but see “Length” section above) is an available option however the tubing under the housing allows us to reinforce the strain relief a little better. Below are some nickel housings with the short frame Mono straight and right angle plugs for reference. The TRS versions will look similar but the straight housing will have the normal length.
