A lot of the reviews I've seen on this site complain of this adapter's poor sound quality- that couldn't be farther from the truth. This adapter plays back sound excellent through an iPod. The users here experiencing trouble do not know what they are doing unfortunately and don't know how to configure this device properly, or they have terrible sound systems.

If you read the instructions on the packaging it indicates that sound playback is best with your iPod volume adjusted to about 75%. Doing this produces excellent sound quality through the tape adapter. I'm using this in my Infiniti G35 with a Bose sound system.

I've had the adapter now about 9-10 months and my only complaint with it right now is that recently it has been having issues playing back in my car. Specifically, sometimes when I start my car up and the tape deck attempts to play the cassette, it has trouble doing so and will auto-reverse to side 1, then back to side 2, and eventually eject itself with a tape deck error message. This seems to happen the most right after starting the vehicle or sometimes when I hit bumps while driving. I've tried to look into the cause of this and from what I've read the issue seems to arise from rubber rollers that cover the plastic rollers within the mechanism and their tendency to get stuck and cause problems in the playback. It was also suggested to remove those rubber rollers to improve playback but I haven't tried this yet. However, the playback errors are happening quite frequently now so I will probably either try that or buy a different tape adapter soon.

Like the other reviews here, I was extremely disappointed especially since they typically put out decent quality products. I have a 97 4Runner and the cassette made loud noises for the entire (and short) life of the product. Don't waste your money.

Really was just what i needed. Delivers great sound and good dependability, overall well made product. The cable length is good and the jack its self is decent. A good product for what it is and another good product from Monster.

This iPod adapter is an older model. One day after I received it, it began spitting out the tape frequently - so annoying! It's an issue with the amount of tape in the cassette, I think... Low quality for sure.

Very fuzzy, hard to get into car tape deck. You couldn't even hear all of the music tracks. Get something different! I returned mine to the Apple store I bought it at.

It doesn't work. I tried this in a 1998 Jetta, a 2004 Civic and a 1999 Camry and it didn't work in any of them with my ipod. Shame on them for advertising that it works.

I got my adapter yesterday. It took me a few seconds to find out that it does not work. Glad, I returned it. AVOID THIS PRODUCT.
