Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"I've had a lot of problems with these adapters shorting out."
_
"It's probably hard to mess up making an adapter as simple as this, but it's worth mentioning that this one has survived some accidental abuse on my part."
_
"These, as other similar adapters, seem to be made to fail in no less than an hour."
_
"I ended up just buying another one of these plugs, the adapter fit pretty loose, and I heard a little noise when the cord shifted on my headphones, i reccomend buying an adapter that costs a little more, and save the hassle."
_
"I bought a cable made from the same manufacturer, and ended up having the same problems with it as I did this adapter."
_
"When you plug the adapter into a hole, yes it is very snug, but the problem comes when you plug something into the adapter."
_
"I needed an adapter to plug into my keyboard so I could plug my headphones in while I was playing, The adapter worked great and the sound is great."
_
"I've already replaced 2 of them with a higher quality adapter and those channels work great now."
_
"Needed an adapter for my electric keyboard, and this works very well."
_
"I ordered two of these adapters, and they work very well."
_
"I have another cheap adapter from another brand that works perfectly fine."

Cable

Cable:
"also I have switched out the 3.5mm cables and the problem persists."
_
"its durable,....I tripped on the cable from my piano that attached this to it, I thought it was broken but its not...pretty much amazing for a small size, maybe because it happened once, but let's see if it happens again, if it would withstand another beating."
_
"I bought a cable made from the same manufacturer, and ended up having the same problems with it as I did this adapter."
_
"Hosa generally has an excellent reputation for cables & connectors."
_
"I have several of their cables and adapters and they are a great bargain."
_
"Hose cables and adapters are always a great buy."
_
"I would recommend buying a whole 3.5mm to 1 4in cord."
_
"The adaptor was of very good quality and it worked perfectly, I would recommend that those needed any adapters and cables to order through Amazon."

Connection

Connection:
"Like it though the connection isn't always great."
_
"I chalked that up to just the headphones and used a different pair and that connection isn't that great either."
_
"The connection is terrible and far from stable."
_
"Sound is decent, but the connection is so flimsy that one can't even move while listening to music."
_
"The connection to the 3.5mm input is very tight, but that is probably a good thing."
_
"At first plug-in it works but if I move then the connection sometimes weakens and I have to tap the headphone connector around until it gets back in the correct spot to have a clear connection."
_
"Then once the plug is perfectly seated, if you accidentally move it at all you will loose the connection."
_
"This has solid, strong connection and works very well."
_
"It fit perfect with and makes a good connection with no static."

Connector

Connector:
"------------------------------After three short months about half of these connectors have failed to the point of being not usable."
_
"None of them have outright failed, however on more than half of them the female jack holds the male plus so loosely that any small force will unplug the male cable the female end of this adapter."
_
"Most headphones come with 3.5mm jacks but I have a multi-headphone amplifier that needs 1 4 jacks and these solve that problem."
_
"Hosa generally has an excellent reputation for cables & connectors."
_
"I've never had any problem with the jack popping out or causing noise."
_
"good 1 4 connector"
_
"The only con is that you might lose it easily if it's not always attached to something, however as a connector it performs as good as any gold ones I also use."
_
"The female part doesn't grip the 3.5mm jack it is intended to very well."

Headphone

Headphone:
"Not to get into details, but I tried using this for something very inappropriate and it didn't work out well, but as soon as I plugged my headphones into it, problem solved."
_
"Bass sounds transfer terribly and make headphones crackle to bass sounds, even at low volume levels."
_
"Yes the 1 4th inch is perfect size but the 3.5mm female side of the adapter was 3.5mm but expanded SLIGHTLY on top just enough for headphones to slip out of and be where you have to hold it on ANNOYING I have ordered a lot of stuff on amazon but this is the worst I've ever got on amazon"
_
"Obviously it's not as good as having some headphones that can plug right in, but I'd pay twice what I had to for this thing the way it performs."
_
"I have a really good pair of headphones that I plugged it into and blech."
_
"I needed an adapter to plug into my keyboard so I could plug my headphones in while I was playing, The adapter worked great and the sound is great."

Plug

Plug:
"The 3.5mm female connector started out loose and soon became unusable (unable to hold the 3.5mm plug or to make a good electrical connection)."
_
"When you plug the adapter into a hole, yes it is very snug, but the problem comes when you plug something into the adapter."
_
"It broke almost immediately so that a 3.5mm plug would no longer plug in without falling out."
_
"Sure enough, these plugs failed to make positive locking with the 1 4 female plugs."
_
"I needed an adapter to plug into my keyboard so I could plug my headphones in while I was playing, The adapter worked great and the sound is great."
_
"The 3.5mm jack portion seems to be a bit loose, so you have to position the plug perfectly for it to make contact."
_
"Then once the plug is perfectly seated, if you accidentally move it at all you will loose the connection."
_
"They are a good bit more expensive than the plug style but they will work much better"
_
"Im not sure if this is a problem with my amp or this product, but when i plug this into my amp, the sound quality is really grainy and its not smooth at all."
