Is there any difference between these two cables?

I already own a set of RF-603s, and I'd like to be able to use them as a wireless shutter release for my Canon 60D. I know I need a cable for this.

The only place I've been able to find a cable that says it is specifically for the 60D is eBay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/RF-603-MC-36R-Shutter-Release-Cable-Canon-60D-550D-/180693828617

However, on Amazon I found a cable that says it's for the XXXD series, but appears to be identical (at least visually) to the other one:

http://www.amazon.com/Yongnuo-RF-603-Shutter-Release-Cable/dp/B0056ZZ57M/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1321727407&sr=1-2

My question is, will the XXXD cable work for my 60D? I need the cable ASAP, so I'm hoping to buy it from a U.S. dealer (Amazon or some other place).

Or better yet... would a 2.5mm-to-2.5mm cable from Radio Shack do the trick? Or is there something special about the cables that say they're meant specifically for the RF-603s?

Any help would be appreciated!
