These are your standard issue USB 2.0 type A to micro USB 5-pin... but wait, what's this? These cables have minor, yet genius modifications that allow both ends to be plugged into their ports regardless of their orientation. No longer will you fight the USB "super position" where both orientations of your plug seem incorrect. A simple solution to a problem that nearly everyone has faced. This is one of the features we love so much about USB-C, but now it works with all your Micro-B devices as well!
This version of the Reversible USB A to Reversible Micro-B Cable is 0.8m/~2ft length and is perfect for small applications.

lMaybe something on the contacts? After a few plug, unplug, and replug cycles they are working well now. The problem still occurs ocassionally, appear to be the USB A end of the cable. Unplugging and plugging it back in fixes it. I haven't seen this problem with "standard" micro B cables, so it is the port I'm plugging them into.
Even without the Mode/ID pin connected these should still work as a regular cable. Sounds like you got a defective one, if you contact customer service they can help you out with a replacement.
