Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"I do not know what it is, but you can buy every adapter there is and still be missing the one you need."
_
"nice extension cable and adapters for headphones at less than $10...can't beat it...;) A great addition to your accessory bag."
_
"But that I can forgive, because the cord will disconnect before it does damage to the adapter, and I think this was intentional."
_
"The sound quality with this cord was just as good as without, and I love the multiple adapters, but I wish it was a little shorter."
_
"It has the usual adapters but it's missing a matching mini to 1 4 one for headphones or additional cables that use 1 4 plugs."
_
"It is nice and long and the adapters come in handy."
_
"Works great and comes with multiple adapters to plug into different devices."
_
"The adapters are also great quality."
_
"It works very well and has the right adapters for various uses."
_
"This kit of adapters works well, I carry it along while traveling and for occasional use at a friends house or a hotel it has come in handy."

Cable

Cable:
"After a few month's use, this cord developed a problem where sound only came partially through one of of the headphone sides."
_
"My mistake in not buying a longer cord."
_
"This is the second time I've purchased this item the first time was from a store the sold refurbished products the cord worked fine for a week then I had intermittent problems on the right ear cup, then the left cup went completely dead."
_
"The only complaint I really have is the extension cord is heavy, so it will pull some."
_
"This extension cord solved that problem!"
_
"However, for some reason this cord does not work well with headphones having a talk button as my headphones have."
_
"I picked the best cord for my personal needs."
_
"Long, durable cord."
_
"This extension cord works very well."
_
"As for the 20 foot cord...I was able to get across the room (approx 15 feet) with no issues of it unplugging from either end....I couldn't test it for the full 20 because the room wasn't big enough but it seemed it would go for the full 20 because if I pulled it further there was still slack."
_
"That's the whole point of a coiled extension (so it self ravels nice and neatly) rather than a simple straight cord that will offer no resistance or pull back....if the 20 feet is that important then I recommend a straight cord."

Earphone

Earphone:

"If you are wearing headphones, it isn't an issue, but if you are using earphones, it does become a problem."

"This is really a pretty long distance for earphones in my living room or on my computer."

"Also that is light and it works well with any earphone."
_
"I purchased this item to be able to extend my earphones cable because I use an external display for my laptop."
