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 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.
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.
I'd like to point out, however, that plugging this in makes it impossible to use the microphone on the iPhone itself, so when I'm in my car I can use this, or I can use Siri. So far it hasn't been a real annoyance, but if you often use Siri, you may want to give this a pass.

Don't waste your time. I used it 3-4 times and then it completely fell apart and stopped working. Disappointed in the product.Published 1 month ago by Sarah O'Donnell
The cord is really too short. I'm always grabbing the wrong part to adjust the volume or turn it off.Published 1 month ago by Music lover
