I originally bought the Belkin product Belkin Headphone Adapter with Remote for iPod Shuffle that this Scosche product is also designed for -- to correct the stupid design error on the 4th generation iPod Shuffle. And I gave it a good review a few days after I'd started using it. But just recently the Belkin control segment fell apart. As far as I know I had not been unduly rough with it or accidentally knocked it around. But it simply fell apart.

So, taking a chance, I ordered this product which was designed for the same purpose. It seems to be a bit more solidly made than the Belkin. And so far at least it has worked perfectly. It's been two weeks now and nothing untoward has happened to it. I will admit that I am babying it because I don't want the same thing to happen to it that happened to the Belkin.

So I can give it a qualified thumbs up.

Addendum from May 2010: I accidentally ran this product through the washer and it came out just fine, working just like before.

I was very hopeful for this adapter. I've been waiting for it for several months so I could use my Shure headphones with the 3rd Gen shuffle. Belkin came to market first with their own adapter, but since it cost $30 I still waited for the Scosche unit, mainly because I pre-ordered it already and it was a significantly lower price.

I finally got the unit about a week ago. I used it approximately three times: first time just looking at it out of the box, and the following two times for approximately half an hour. At the end of my third use, the front panel of the controller fell off without any force, impact, or manhandling on my part. I put the panel back on and it partially snapped back into place, but it was pretty much a lost cause since it kept falling off after being touched once or twice. The same happened to S. Hendricks, who commented on this problem in another user's 5-star review. I will upload a picture of the broken device at the conclusion of this review so you can take a look for yourself.

So here I am, still waiting for a decent adapter. Of course, Belkin's adapter is now out of stock, so I can't even order that one. It sucks that Apple made people buy an external adapter if they wanted to use a good pair of headphones, but it's even worse that a company can't their act together after announcing the adapter six months ago.

Aside from that (major) flaw, everything else about the adapter worked fine. It felt cheap when being held, but it raised/lowered volume and skipped/paused songs like a champ. As far as I could tell, it did not degrade the quality of the sound, and it was small and flexible enough so I could put it in my headphone carrying case. I would have kept it for a long time if it didn't fall apart in my hands.

I have bought two Scosche Control Adapters. Now, before I delve into the review, I should say it was a crime for Apple not to include controls on the 3rd Generation iPod Shuffle.

Now this device does work in the way it's advertised. By plugging this into the headphone jack and then connecting it to a set of headphones, you'll then be able to raise or lower the player's volume or skip music tracks.

The problem is the quality of the product. I've bought two of these so far, as the ability to skip songs is important to me, as I use my Shuffle to workout and sometimes like to skip songs. My first set had intermittent failure, as the wires were damaged during hectic running. The second set has issues with skipping songs. The button seems to get stuck or doesn't make contact with the internal circuit. So with the two control adapters I have had, they've had poor durability.

My recommendation is to either get an iPod Nano or leave the shuffle in shuffle mode.

This product worked fine for the first few months I had it but it soon started to garble the music unless I had the wire rotated in a certain position. It's basically just a little piece of black plastic with two wires--not reinforced in any way and thus more vulnerable to wear and tear (which it experienced often as I primarily use my ipod during exercise). The long, thin design made it flop around a lot when I went jogging and clipped the ipod on my shorts. Over the next few months it gradually became more and more finicky in terms of how precisely I had to adjust the plug position so that the sound wouldn't be garbled. Finally today it just died on me after 9 months of use. Although, given that ipods and their accessories all seem to have really short lives that's about how long I expected it to last.

I chose this adapter because other people's reviews said that this one, unlike others, didn't break. Well, this one broke too. I used it for less than a month and it stopped working. Until then, it was fine; it kept me from having to use the horrendous iPod headphones that I doubt stay in anyone's ears for any length of time. This adapter has the same commands as the iPod one, so it is an easy transition. That being said, it still doesn't work. I guess that's just what you have to expect with 3rd party equipment for Apple products. Oh, well.
