Great value for the price
on April 13, 2010
Even including the price of shipping, this thing still cost about 10% of what it'd have cost at a local electronics shop, so it already has that going for it. Add to it that it's got gold contacts (a bonus which I wasn't expecting) and that it's retractable (I hate dangly wires in my car!), and playing tunes through my cell phone or MP3 player, the sound is clear and no distortion is detectable. Of course, I don't crank my sound system to ear-bleed levels, either, but for my purposes (and I've only had it for a day) it just plain works great. I hope to update in a few weeks after I've given it a little more of a workout. (Orig review was 13 Apr 2010) UPDATE 22 Aug 2014: About two and a half years (yes YEARS) or so later this cord did start to break down. It is a thin cord, so I expected it would eventually wear out despite my taking care with it. I started to have to fiddle with the spot where the cord meets the plug on one end to get rid of static, and within another six months or so it became so that the sound faded out and it's difficult to keep it at volume or static free. But I stand by my 5-star review. This thing performed better and longer than I'd expected for a bargain piece of equipment costing less than $2.
