Which USB (Type C-A) Cable To Buy For Focusrite Scarlet 2i2 - 3rd Gen ?

Hello. Recently, I ordered an extra USB (Type C-A) cable for my Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd gen audio interface. It came from Amazon and it had good reviews, but I noticed that the cable is 6.6 ft. long. I'm guessing with the cable I ordered from Amazon they just rounded the length to 6.6 ft. instead of making it exactly 6.56 ft. (or 2 meters) long? I found an article on Focusrite's website, advising users of the Scarlett 2i2 3rd Gen to use a cable that is under 2 meters (or under 6.56 ft.). They explained that any longer of a cable "can have an adverse effect on audio quality and connectivity with your computer." That said... I wanted to ask if anyone has purchased a replacement cable for the Scarlett 2i2, one that is long, but under 6.56 ft. Also, what is a good brand, if it even matters?

It seems like the one from Amazon should work fine, but I wanted to check if anyone has used one like this before and if it's even worth stressing about returning the cable and getting another one for. Here's a link to the one I got from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09D3PYW4G?ref_=cm_sw_r_apin_dp_WSEQC18HAKK5GCBPJMDH_1
