Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Control

Control:
"The individual volume controls are not only a nice touch, they are absolutely necessary! "
_
"Works fine as a splitter, but beware, the volume controls are a joke - the difference between the highest and lowest volume settings is almost undetectable."
_
"Unfortunately the volume control barely attenuates the sound (somewhere around maybe 20%), and is almost useless."
_
"The actual splitter itself I'm happy to say works, but the volume control isn't that great."
_
"I did read some reviews, but didn't get down far enough to see that other people were having the same problem I've had ... which is that volume control is laughable."
_
"Only complaint would be to maybe have the sound control bar a little longer broader to effect a broader volume control."
_
"I was hoping that the volume control slider would be able to compensate for that, but in reality, they probably are only good for a one or two decibel different between minimum and maximum output."
_
"And the volume controls allow for comfort"
_
"The volume controls can be easily moved, which can be good and bad."
_
"The slider volume controls are excellent and very useful."
_
"The individual volume controls are great as well."

Headphone

Headphone:
"The problem is that she has a different set of headphones than I do, which blocks noise out better than mine."
_
"The male end is a little wide, it may not fit easily into your device if it has a recessed headphone jack."
_
"I bought a different headphone splitter a few months back and it was terrible - the audio split the two outputs into left and right, and the sound volume was cut in half for both parties."
_
"I bought this because my computer's headphone jack is really strong, and my headphones are really sensitive, so I had the problem of having the volume on the lowest position just to have it at a comfortable level."
_
"This product is great in concept- it fills a necessary niche with individual volume controls (a must when two people share the same source), and performs well....except that the plastic housing for the jack is VERY weak and doesn't give like most normal headphone jacks."
_
"This headphone splitter is great for sharing music, but there are a few issues."
_
"I use this splitter frequently as an inline volume control to decrease noise from my laptop's headphone jack, as well as on planes where volume control is sometimes limited."
_
"I love ear cover headphones, the wife likes ear-buds and the mismatched types meant volume levels were never right."
_
"Headphone splitter worked great for sharing an iPad with my wife to watch a movie on a recent flight."
_
"The great thing about this headphone splitter is that you can control the sound individually."

Music

Music:
"We are both in our early 40s, and neither of us has hearing problems, but we do tend to like our music at different volumes, so this sounded like a win to me."
_
"This headphone splitter is great for sharing music, but there are a few issues."
_
"Great to be able to share music or video with someone without having to use the speakers (e. g. on a plane or train)."
_
"I ordered it for our trip to Maui and it's such a great way for 2 people to listen to a movie or music together."
_
"A great way to share music with people!"

Sound

Sound:
"Disappointing volume feature, only two fixed volume settings, not able to turn down to no sound."
_
"Unfortunately the volume control barely attenuates the sound (somewhere around maybe 20%), and is almost useless."
_
"Only complaint would be to maybe have the sound control bar a little longer broader to effect a broader volume control."
_
"The headphone jacks stay securely clicked in and the sound quality is great."
_
"Although the splitter worked the first time I tried it, when we got to Europe and wanted to both listen to an audio guide off my iPod only one of the lines had adequate sound."
_
"The sound control is better than the others and is extremely clear"
_
"I'm happy with the sound, but not with the build quality."
_
"The great thing about this headphone splitter is that you can control the sound individually."
