There is apparently a lot of confusion over what these adapters can do. I believe the problem is that there are two different wiring standards (pin-outs) for 2.5mm audio plugs and jacks: stereo headphones (two earpieces and no mic) vs. stereo or mono telephone headsets (one or two earpieces and a mic). The 2.5mm male plug's tip and rings are the same dimensions/position, but wired differently.

On a 2.5mm plug with a tip and two rings, the contacts can be wired as earpiece, mic and common, or as left earpiece, right earpiece and common. You'd need a 2.5mm plug with a tip and three rings for a stereo telephone phone headset, just like the 3.5mm version.

Thus, an adapter such as this one will only work with one type of connection, and you cannot tell by looking at it. To make matters worse, some products come with audio controls (mute, forward/reverse or stop/start), and those standards vary.

THIS product does work to convert a mono, 2.5mm plug-equipped headset (earpiece and mic) to work with a 3.5mm jack, such as that found on an iPhone or certain iPod Touch models (like my 4th gen). It does NOT work to convert a stereo 2.5mm plug headset (two earpieces and no mic) to play stereo from the 3.5mm jack. I don't have a stereo 2.5mm telephone headset, so I can't test that combo, but it should work. This is not a fault of this product; it's the fault of the lack of a standard for 2.5mm plugs. I hope this makes sense.

SO, if you have a 2.5mm plug, wired telephone headset you'd like to use with a 3.5mm jack-equipped device, this is the adapter to buy.

My employer gave me yet another new phone, a Samsung Epic, and of course the audio jack is a different size than my previous phone, a Blackberry.

This adapter works perfectly -- I can now use my favorite Plantronics wired headset with microphone.

Service was typical Amazon: Impeccable.

The seller of this item , Malcom Distributors, is a great seller. When they found out that this item had broken on me they immediately sent out a new one and an apology email. This is going above and beyond in my book. Unfortunately, the item itself is fundamentally flawed. The wire breaks at the male end after very little use. I've had a few of these so I know it's not just one faulty unit. I again want to stress how impressed I am with the seller. This particular item just happens to be a faulty design.

I wanted to adapt a headset with 2.5mm jack to my iPad. Had a bit of trouble finding a stereo plus mike adapter.

This worked just fine. So did my old headset.

Just received this and it works. I tried other adaptors from Amazon.com that either carried no sound, or had unacceptable interference. This connected my Entymotic headset to an IPhone 4 and the sound is very clear.

I almost feel like the reviews here are for the wrong headset. I took a gamble and ordered two as they were a little over $3 at the time. I had ordered 1 adapter from eBay also but I know how these type of adapters can be dual channel instead of triple channel. When this is the case, you get only one earpiece working when you plug a stereo plus mic into it. This was not this case. I plugged my 2.5 mm stereo plus mic headset, and now can use them with my HTC Hero 3.5 for stereo music and talking on phone. The one I ordered from eBay did not work even though it also had the TRRS ending (this means 4 separate contact points or the number of rings. Tip Ring Ring Sleeve is the official name. Look up "TRS connector" on Wikipedia for more information).

The short of it. My TRRS 2.5mm jacked stereo headset plus mic transforms great to a TRRS 3.5 for use with my HTC Hero cell phone. I also tried it with an old single ear plus mic headset and it works great with that one two. So now all the old single headset/mic as well as the couple of stereo headset/mic that I have, can be used with our new phones. I am here to order 2 more as I have a lot of old single ear with boom-mic headsets.

Maybe the bad reviews are because the company sent the wrong adapter? Or it was a different company than the one that sent to me. I would call and complain as this one states that it converts Stereo cell phone headsets to stereo. The company that sent me mine was "DollarRite" "Shipped and sold by"

Hope this helps.

I purchased two Plantronics MX505 Windsmart Boom Headsets - for $8.99 each and in combination with this this adapter for $1.59, I am able to talk on my iphone 4 in the car and in the office. Bluetooth headsets never worked for me or anyone I know. This adapter worked for the MIC and the audio of the headset. Great product! Great Price!

The title says it all; this adapter works flawlessly with Nexus (3.5mm female port) and Plantronics mono headset with mic (2.5mm male pin). Further, the features on the Plantronics headset such as volume control also work on the phone as well. I have only been using this adapter for about a week so I can't comment on durability, but I have used many of these types of adapters in the past and this seems as sturdy as any of them. I have yet to find one that can last more than about 6 months - I expect about the same from this adapter as the overall construction is on par with every other one that I have purchased. I will update the review if the lifespan is dramatically less than 6 months.
