Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"I do not recommend this adapter for anyone that is watching movies or gaming."
_
"Not sure if it's the cabling, shielding or the connectors - but my otherwise good audio is not so good while using this adapter for chat."
_
"Unfortunately for me it was a single plug requiring a F M splitter adapter."
_
"Frankly, it still beats me how a short cable adapter could cause so much signal degradation and noise."
_
"Not only does the microphone not work on several devices I tested, but also after I tested it on an external USB card which somehow worked with this adapter, I discovered that it caused so much degradation on signal quality that it was simply ridiculous."
_
"These are precisely the type this cable adapter is designed for, yet it completely fails to work."
_
"Great adapter!"
_
"My god please look at another adapter."
_
"I purchased the XBOX One headset and this cable adapter allows this headset to work perfectly on my PC."

Audio

Audio:
"It makes static noises and the mic sucks, and it broke my razed krackens but I'm having them replaced by bestbuy (the audio only comes through 1 side now without and with the splitter)"
_
"Not sure if it's the cabling, shielding or the connectors - but my otherwise good audio is not so good while using this adapter for chat."
_
"I don't think it'll ever move from my PC's audio ports so I'm not too worried about durability, but it certainly feels like it makes a solid connection and won't fall out."
_
"Clear loss of audio and gained interference when plugged in."
_
"Purchased this splitter several months ago, it occasionally needs to be twisted to maintain full audio quality but has no significant problems."
_
"Mic works good and I have stereo audio."
_
"It makes static noises and the mic sucks, and it broke my razed krackens but I'm having them replaced by bestbuy (the audio only comes through 1 side now without and with the splitter)"
_
"It works really well with no noticeable drop in audio quality"

Cable

Cable:
"This cable is a fail for me."
_
"Frankly, it still beats me how a short cable adapter could cause so much signal degradation and noise."
_
"These are precisely the type this cable adapter is designed for, yet it completely fails to work."
_
"The tiny icons on each cable tip for the mic and phones are hard to see, so I always fumble a bit to find which is which."
_
"If you have an iphone headphones, or ones that have both the headphone and microphone in one pin, this is the cable you need to be able to use with computers that have a dedicated headphone and microphone port."
_
"If anyone finds a cable that works with the 3-button headsets please let me know."
_
"The cable looks nice and may work with some products, just not mine."
_
"I purchased the XBOX One headset and this cable adapter allows this headset to work perfectly on my PC."
_
"While they functioned and I could record my voice and hear myself during a Skype test call, there is a constant feedback that is not there when plugging the headset cable directly into my PC - the audio is crystal clear there."

_
"Not sure if it's the cabling, shielding or the connectors - but my otherwise good audio is not so good while using this adapter for chat."
_
"The female connector might be positioned incorrectly so the signals got mixed together."
_
"This fits the bill perfectly for splitting a combo jack."
_
"Does what I need it to do, with no problems and has strong quality connectors."
_
"The connector is really well made, seriously, im impressed with the build quality of this thing."
_
"I've had no problems with my jack, and it works great."
