The Sony CPA-9C is a quality accessory for being able to listen to ipod & iPhone devices through your car's cassette player.
The Sony CPA-9C cassette adaptor allows you to connect your minidisc or CD player to a vehicle cassette player. While this Sony product works best with Sony CD and MD players, the adaptor will operate with non-Sony products as well. There are a couple of key features to this adaptor which make it a fine choice. The first notable feature is the spring-loaded head. The head will automatically adjust itself to your vehicle's cassette deck, ensuring that the two heads have optimum contact and transfer the best possible sound. The second key feature is the silent mechanism. A silent mechanism yields less operational noise and a better quality MD or CD sound. This adaptor works with all cassette players which require you to insert the tape opening facing the side. The mini-plug inserts into a portable CD or MD headphone jack. The cassette adaptor is a cheap way to make your vehicle CD and MD operational.

Update 2nd day:
90 minute road trip, Droid Turbo smartphone cookin' up the tunes from my favorite music site Pandora. Absolutely flawless! I know some reviews talk about various degrees of sound quality degradation. I am not experiencing that. I know it's not absolute CD quality, but the difference is pretty negligible to my normal guy non-audiophile eardrums. In the interest of full disclosure I have a premium Bose audio system albeit from 2007. I am not oblivious to the fact that many people do NOT have premium audio car systems and speakers so for those as they say, results may vary.
Update 10/9/16: Flawless performance.
Update 10/10/16 I ordered a second Sony converter today. Since it is perfect, for the nominal price I want to keep it as a spare since these sorts of items are getting a little long in the tooth. I'm guarding against the availability and the possible failure of my current unit and the possibility that I'll own my 2007 vehicle longer than this precious device may be available in the future.
Nota Bene: I purchased this at full retail price and have no relationship with the manufacturer or the seller. This review was written solely to share my experience with this product for the benefit of the Amazon community. While I do often write up products sent to me as review samples, this is not one of those reviews. *All* of my reviews are frank, straightforward and hopefully helpful, but it is up to the reader to decide whether to trust a review or not. As such, just as I disclose having received a review sample when that is the case, I thought it prudent to state that this is not one of those cases.
Only downside: When device is on full volume, sound can become distorted. I keep my phone at about 75% volume and do the rest from the car volume. You'll have to test it out for yourself.
For those of you experiening eject issues that are dribing your mad, one solution others have found is tor flip over the cassette and re-inster it.
BUT... I've found a better way!
Simply REMOVE THE TAPE. It pulls out with minimal force and has ad no detrimental effect on either of my two units.
In fact, I've noticed improved sound as the tape hiss is gone.
This is no joke. If you have given up on your cassette due to ongoing auto ejection issues, Try this.
-Cord is extremely thin. This will eventually cause the cord to break or wear thin at the connections. Being in a car you unplug it, plug it in, cord is on the floor, passed around etc. It's just not built for durability.
-It picks up A TON of interference from other electronics. I think it's any time my phone is transferring internet data (whole time playing Pandora), or maybe its my radar detector. Either way I cannot get through a single song without hearing obnoxious buzzing noises making the tape utterly useless.
-Makes a clicking noise, but this could my tape deck in my 2004 acura tl. Not sure, I know I've heard this before with other tapes, some less - some more.
Overall I cannot use this tap adapter and am disappointed in the other reviews. Maybe others will have a better experience but I cannot listen to this thing buzz any longer and I've owned it for two days. Of all the electronics technology this is such an outdated product, being unchanged since the CD was invented, and one that I use everyday and am in a constant struggle to find one that lasts, and sounds good at the same time. They are almost all junk.
