In the beginning of my experience, the adapter was a great fix for a harsh vacancy. One who loves music must surely spit when apples earbuds are mentioned. The voice quality was crisp and I didn't detect any loss of quality for music. The volume slider worked great.
Then, after one month of use, the clip decided it was through with life and promptly split at the hinge. Being the ghetto genius I am, I modded the hinge part with a paper clip and continued.
After about seven months of use the wire at the plug end began to decay, showing clear stress signs. Shortly thereafter, it separated revealing the inner guts. It took some heatshrink with electric tape to create a suitable fix. Needless to say, it became unattractive at this point.
About a month ago, I began encountering intermittent interference while on voice calls. Unfortunately it's steadily become a receiver for a gremlin minimalist band that loves to chip at my sanity with bits and bops. Talking over the sequential patterns is like trying to sing under a Chinese water torture device. It is freaking irritating. I notice that tapping/lightly slamming the volume control/control button/ microphone case seems to deliver an instant encore.
It's dead Jim.
Now after much research I find that there is still no better option. The Shure MPA-C3 is oddly vacant from the face of the planet.Read more ›

Now the downside: it's delicate. It comes apart easy. The wires inside are very tiny and cannot tolerate being pulled around outside its case. Furthermore, the wires entering the base twist freely within the unit, and as such, frequent twisting causes the wires to break inside. This thing wasn't built to last, it was built with costs in mind.
An additional downside, at least for me, is the cable is too short. I am tall, and thus, my torso is tall. While the cable is around 24 inches long, it is not long enough for the phone to be down in the front pocket of my Levis and the microphone to be up on my lapel or collar. Instead, it just reaches the bottom of my shirt pocket. Another 12 inches would have scored a 5 star rating.
I have purchased three of these, now, and I have a tip for those of you who may be adventurous: Glue it shut. That's right, glue the thing shut and it will last considerably longer. Do this at your own risk, mind you. But if you want to save a buck and have the thing last for a while, this is my recommendation. I have perfected the following procedure and the third unit has lasted over 9 months, so far. I use the thing everyday in my car, and often around the house doing chores.
Insert the headphone plug into the top of the unit, and use it as leverage to split the unit apart. Carefully place superglue at a few places around the perimeter. Place a drop of glue at the base where the wires enter the unit (to prevent them from twisting.) Snap the unit back closed, press, hold and enjoy.
I am so happy with this product, I am going to order an additional one for my car. I am still shocked that such a low costing product provides so many features that I love! I highly suggest picking this beauty up.
