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. Griffin smart talk is described as coming apart after a month, Monster has issues with destroying pocketed iphones, and Audio-Technica has build quality issues that are almost as bad as the Griffin smart talk adapter. Just the mention of any of these aberrations makes me recoil. The saving grace is that while this brandless adapter is disposable, it's also cheap to replace. I'll be purchasing this again but this time I'll modify the heck out of it. Gorilla glue, heatshrink and some steel iBeams for good measure.
I find the cable to be a bit short, but that is because I mostly prefer to set the phone down on a desk or table. If you were carrying the phone or had it in a holster case the length of the cord would be fine.
The button on the microphone will mute it, this button does *not* hang up the call (you must wake up your phone to do that).
So, my final thought is, it works fine to speak and take calls, also to listen to music and control play/stop and skip forward songs. Delivery was very prompt as promised.
Update after barely three months of scarce use:
Audio started to interrupt due to an internal cable cut near the plug; so it became useless. It is a pity because it worked well, but the product quality is too BAD, don't waste your money with this product. Initially I gave 5 stars, but now I change to one, but it deserves none.
