Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Liberate your iPod from its entry-level earbuds and listen to your music through your favorite headphones with the Belkin Headphone Adapter. Designed for use with the iPod classic, touch 2G, nano 4G, and shuffle 4G, this handy adapter features multifunction buttons that are built into the cord, giving you easy control over your playlists, volume, and more.

Break Away from the Earbuds
The earbuds included with your iPod don't always do justice to your music, but they do offer convenient controls built into the cord. With the Belkin Headphone Adapter you can have the best of both worlds--you use the headphones of your choice without compromising on control.

As long as your headphones feature a 3.5-mm jack, you're good to go. Choose your favorite pair for comfort, bass, sound quality, or noise reduction--with the Headphone Adapter, you can finally decide how you want to listen to your music.

Familiar Features to Control Your Shuffle
The Headphone Adapter has the same controls as your iPod's earbuds, so you'll get all the functionality you're used to. And since the features mirror those on the earbuds, you won't have to relearn all the controls. You can play or pause your music or select tracks based on the number of clicks. Also, if your device supports it, you can use VoiceOver commands to browse through playlists and hear the title and artist of the song that's playing.

My original review (but keep reading, because I've added something important to what I said originally):

This product came into being because of deficiencies in the controls for the 4th generation iPod Shuffle Apple iPod shuffle 4 GB Silver (4th Generation) NEWEST MODEL, Apple iPod shuffle 2 GB Silver (4th Generation) NEWEST MODEL, whose controls are so close to the ear-pieces of the headphones that they are not only awkward to use, but they get soaked with sweat (if you're exercising, which is what many people who buy the Shuffle use it for) and then may perform erratically or not at all. This product puts the controls down near the iPod itself, which can be clipped onto a shirt away from your sweaty head. But best of all, you can use your own preferred headphones. If you're like me, you prefer the better tone quality of bigger headphones.

At any rate, this is a product whose designer saw a need and filled it with a new product. Thank you, Belkin.

November update:
A couple or three weeks after I had received the Belkin unit and had written the above review, I discovered that the Belkin had simply fallen apart. As far as I know I had not been rough with it and don't remember accidentally hitting it against a wall or taking a sledge hammer to it. :-) But it fell apart and was useless. This was a shock. So I took a chance and bought a different unit, the one made by Scosche

First off, it worked fine for a while.
Then the volume up button wouldn't click. Still worked, so whatever.
Then the middle button would get stuck. I would have to pry it back open with my fingernails.
Then the thing started acting up; it kept thinking the middle button was pushed. I would have split the thing in half, peel off the poorly stickied metal contacts, and it still thinks the middle button was being pushed.
OK product. Shoddy construction.

The concept is very simple, volume up, volume down pause.

Volume up works perfectly.
Pause mostly paused. One time it skipped to the next track.
Volume down raised the volume. I could get it to lower the volume sometimes, but it required just the right spot between the pause and volume switch, which most of the time first raised the volume or paused.

Mine was obviously defective, but, with other reviews I have read in different places, there are MANY quality issues with it.
It's a great idea, but don't waste your money.

I ordered this because my Shuffle 3G headphones had been rendered useless by my workout routine, just like everyone elses'. I use it with a set of high quality in-ear monitors, made for performing musicians (& therefore sweat resistant), and the good news is that I can hear no discernible loss of sound quality or addition of unwanted noise when the Belkin is plugged in between the Shuffle and my in-ears. So now I can control my Shuffle without the terrible Apple headphones. The bad news is that the build quality of this unit is not great. The volume down button never 'clicked' out of the box, and although it does work, it doesn't provide any tactile response, which leads me to believe it will fail at some point (to be fair, it's been working for 3 months now). Also, the center button seems to not respond as it should, making it difficult for me to get the VoiceOver feature of the Shuffle to work consistently, if at all, although I can usually get it to switch between playlists, which is crucial for me.
All in all, the Belkin is OK in my book, as without it, my Shuffle would be nothing more than a tiny, utterly useless paperweight, and with the Belkin, I can manage to listen to my music through the headphones of my choosing. This item, even with its' cheap construction, is essential to anyone who plans on working out with the Shuffle 3G.

I'm not sure what is worse: Apple's cynical decision to get more licensing revenue by making the new shuffle useless without an adaptor such as the Belkin, Belkin's shoddy quality or my decision to skip the Nano in favor of the smaller shuffle. In any event, the Belkin adaptor worked for about two weeks. Now it only functions to increase the volume...nothing else. Basically $20 worth of junk.

This is a great idea with bad quality, I had this for 2 weeks before it just stopped working, It worked great for those 2 weeks and the wirring just detached from the control pad. Its just cheaply made with low quailty plastic parts and wirring.

so, i buy this cable for 20$ and use it for a week, and the remote stops working.
i buy another one (figured it would be easier than trying to contact customer service) and it stops working too..
so, in short, 5 weeks after the first one, and 4 cables later, i decided that i should call belkin...and i did.
I WISH I NEVER DID.
after 45 minutes of someone from tech support who barely understands english trying to "diagnose" the issue (come on people, it is a 4 inch cable, how technical is that??) i got transfered to customer care..AKA "Customer DON'T Care" department. i was told that they needed to create an RMA number..but, in order to do that..i need to go to their website, fill a form first, then they will generate one for me...and then...i need to ship each cable, so they can ship one back..i tried to explain to him that i do not care about exchanging anymore, i do not want anything from them, and that all i wanted was that they know how bad the cable quality is (which costs 4cents to make) and that their customer service is even worse..he said "ok, thanks" and hung up...
did not even document the call, did not even care about reporting it...
oh well..lesson learned..i will NEVER recommend or buy any of their products and here i am on amazon again, buying two adapters from their competitors..
