1) Will it work "backwards"?
2) Will it attenuate sound?
So here's what I discovered:
1) It most definitely works "backwards". Since the car kit necessitates me placing the output from my phone into the "input" side of the device, I really had no choice on how to "route" the signal. Immediately I noticed a tremendous improvement. The whine is still there, but I need to turn the volume up to 30 to hear it at all during a pause in playback. Since I normally listen at 10-15 which is plenty loud for me, this was a non-issue. It did what I needed it to do perfectly, the whine is not audible at idle during silence between tracks, the whine is not audible at 60+ MPH during silence between tracks.
2) This was the big concern for me as several reviews mentioned this cut audio and killed frequency response. The music was just as loud, and using the "8 Mile" soundtrack as my testing album, bass response was just the same, deep and powerful. Highs were crisp and clear. This device did not attenuate sound at all.
The only thing is that the jack sleeve is a bit thick to ensure a solid insertion into my phone's headphone jack with the case on. So I need to remove the case in order to ensure a good connection. I almost docked a star because of this, but that is not really a flaw with the device. If you have a loud whine while charging your phone and listening via Aux-In and are on the fence about this device, don't be. It works, and works great.
From the other reviews on here it's obvious that this is not an isolated problem, a fluke, a random chance, or just bad luck. What it is, is a sign of poor quality components, poor quality manufacturing, poor quality control, or some combination of these. In other words, you are taking your chances that you will get non-functional junk which you will then have to return in hopes that the next item you receive will not also be non-functional junk. Whcih, based on the positive reviews here will happen eventually...but...really. Let's be honest. Do you want to waste your time playing the "will it or won't it work" game and going on to Amazon to print return shipping labels? Or do you just want something that works?
If the former, then great! This is under $9, returns are a snap, and in a week or two you will eventually get a unit that works as advertised. But if the latter? Move along. There is nothing to see here.
Long story short: After some research I was dumbfounded, then disappointed, then mad, then realized how dumb I was, then decided to do the smart thing and share my experience with other buyers to warn them away from this product.
Bottom line: Product works, but flips the audio channels (left and right audio). It's a slight, but overall noticeable difference that I wouldn't sacrifice for having "clearer" audio. I'd just buy a different noise isolating device.
