I have gone through both the monster i sonic and now the griffin i-talk.

First let's start with the Monster, outgoing call quality may be better that the Griffin but it has a huge and fatal flaw, and that is the dongle itself. The Monster has a huge connector, which at first may not seem like a big deal, but it acts like a lever when put it into your pants pocket. It will definitely remove your headphone jack from the iphone circuit board, it in fact did so in less than a week after purchase. (Thank you Apple Store SF. for letting me upgrade to 16gb as I returned my broken phone) This is just through normal use, I was even pretty cautious as I just bought the phone, if you put the phone in your shirt pocket that may help, but ultimately even that will lead failure.

Now lets move on to the Griffin. They took a different route. With this you plug your headphones into the top of the cable which makes for a much lower profile at the phone itself, but as noted adds that length to your current headphone cord. I am lucky to have fairly new headphones that allow for replaceable cords ( Bose OnEar if you are interested.) so the Griffin just replaces that which is pretty sweet. Now the bad news. The cord on the Griffin has a vinyl cover which seems to be the rage these days. I am not sure why however as in my exierience they blow. The problem is that the material is relatively stiff and now the cable is failing at the connector (hey at least its not my phone this time). So long story short avoid the Monster at all costs, and if you can manage to not trip over the Griffin's cord maybe buy 2 at a time as the crappy cord materials make it disposable at best.

Can I please get a decent solution? One with full functionality ( I am looking at you Bose). The i-phone is awesome it amazes me that noone can figure out the friggin cord though.

Other reviewers talk about using this for other applications, but what it seems best designed for is in-vehicle use to get the ability to connect directly into your stereo's AUX input so you can listen to music/podcasts as well as hear the other party when using the phone with the wired microphone that comes as part of this adapter. It works just fine for this application. My only complaint is that I'm about to be on my third one as they only seem to last about six months before something about the electrical connection goes bad.

I got this product for christmas (less than a month ago), after searching for the perfect solution to the iPhone's recessed headphone jack. This had a unique design that looked sturdy and well thought out, and it was cheaper than the shure headphone adapter for iphone.

My first impression was one of my worst fears, this is going to suck to have in your pocket. It just sticks out too far from the headphone jack, especially since headphones requiring this generally have bulky plugs. The next thing I realized is that the design, with the mic cord coming out directly beside the new headphone port, still limits the size of the headphone plug. My high end Sennheisers require an 1/4 to 1/8 headphone adapter already, and the resulting 1/8 plug is too bulky to plug into the iSoniTalk because the mic wire is too close to the port! Next, less than a month later with only very few uses, it seems there's a loose connection in the adapter assembly so that sound cuts in and out (it went from annoying to impossible in very short order. This is getting sent back and I'm getting the Shure headphone adapter instead. It's design is much more practical, with the only flaw being that it extends the headphone cord quite a bit.

That said, the mic assembly and button felt good and was lightweight, and I've been told the call voice quality was good.

Verified Purchase
I had a different phone with a different mic. That phone died and wanted to start using my newer phone to plug my car stereo in and using the lapel mic to talk hands free while driving. In the past nobody has had any problems with this kind of setup...

Now with this unit and new phone and new service area (yes, probably other contributers to my problem) when I made calls/or received, I would be told that people i am speaking with hear an echo of their conversation coming back to them. I have been adjusting the volume on the car but I don't think that is really helping. Shows me that the mic isn't made for this and doesn't cut out (Half-duplex) when the other parties are talking.

It's great for when I have to listen to messages or make short calls..but..i like my road trips. I will still be checking out other units and i have bought 2 so I can use my phone handsfree at the computer. The other unit is a different manufacturer and suffers the same problem. GRRRR..
I hope this is helpful because the rest of the unit functions as expected! I still recommend it to let you walk about with your phone and have headsets on..:)

I read all the bad reviews about things that have gone wrong with this adapter and decided that since I'm not using it to be mobile I would go for it. I now can plug in my high end noise cancelling earphones and still get phone calls while at my desk. Maybe the 5-stars is a bit much for something this simple, but it does exactly what I want it to do and it works great. The 1-star reviews are probably honestly expressing dissatisfaction with the device, but my philosophy is not to call a taxi and expect a firetruck...it is what it is.
