Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"This adapter has found the best solution to both of the most common issues I've experienced with adapters and I wouldn't recommend anything else."
_
"Not sure if there are any other adapters that are better but I am definitely disappointed with the lack of durability."
_
"This alleviates that problem by having the adapter separated from the 3.5mm jack with a small bit of flexible cable."
_
"The previous headphone adapter I owned had a problem with it's 3.5mm plug and wouldn't plug into devices snugly."
_
"With a solid adapter it is possible, even likely that you will damage the headphone jack in your music player or phone."
_
"The reason I like this is because the design keeps stress off of the audio jack, I have had the straight adapters damage the audio jack with the weight of the adapter and cord, this takes a lot of stress of the jack."
_
"Best Adapter I have ever used for this."
_
"Perfect inexpensive adapter."
_
"These adapters have to be perfectly sized."
_
"Great adapter."
_
"The right angle plug also rotates well without cutting in and out like the typical adapters do."

Audio

Audio:
"I was worried about accidentally bumping it and damaging my laptop audio jack."
_
"The reason I like this is because the design keeps stress off of the audio jack, I have had the straight adapters damage the audio jack with the weight of the adapter and cord, this takes a lot of stress of the jack."
_
"It pulled and knocked down my studio monitors, laptop computer, and knocked over a guitar (yes, a very bad incident it was).To my extreme fortune, nothing was damaged except for one thing; my 1 4 to 3.5mm audio adapter for my Senheisser's!"
_
"Good, solid audio connections, heavy rubber cable that matches standard 1 4 headphone cabling, and stress reliefs that look like they'll take some abuse."
_
"It functioned well, it made s secure connection with no audio degradation."
_
"P. S. it works great with my photography products, but also very well for it's intended purpose of audio."
_
"I bought it to connect my Sennheiser hd555 headphones and found no degradation of audio quality."
_
"The main problem with this product is that it is too loose and very easy for it to simple unplug itself for the audio jack."

Cable

Cable:
"All the previously attempted solutions were real dinky, cheap, flimsy, light gauge cable that did not hold up over time and I was just not satisfied."
_
"This was my 4th or 5th attempt at a suitable cable connector."
_
"The reason I like this is because the design keeps stress off of the audio jack, I have had the straight adapters damage the audio jack with the weight of the adapter and cord, this takes a lot of stress of the jack."
_
"Save yourself the frustration and buy a better cord that actually works more than once."
_
"THIS CORD IS THE WORST DON'T BUY IT"
_
"This cord is absolutely terrible."
_
"I mostly like the size of the extension cable as it has worked nicely with my Magpul iPhone 6s case."
_
"It's OKHave purchase a lot of Hosa cables over the years and so I trust their quality to be medicre, but reliable."
_
"The right angle cord definitely works, and works well--the only reason it's not a 5 star is because it is too short."
_
"We haven't had time to look for an adapter to lengthen the cord yet, but under normal operating conditions, this cord will work, despite being shorter than we would have liked."
_
"I tested this on my phone and it also works, but the 1 4 end of the cable is too heavy to recommend this for any portable use."

Connection

Connection:
"This seems to be a common problem with a lot of the connecting cords we have gotten in the last few years."
_
"Solid and sturdy feel, doesn't leave my 1 4' plug feeling like a flimsy or weak connection."
_
"The 3.5mm end didn't provide for a good quality connection, leaving no sound to one of the headphone ears."
_
"Very useful, but connection breaks if it gets bumped so the connection fit isn't perfect."
_
"On your laptop the cord may jut straight out of the connection allowing you to bang it and damage the plug."
_
"When in use though there appears to either be a design flaw or poor quality control - all the headphones I tried (around 6) all had connection problems - static, sound only on one side of the headphone, volume problems."
_
"Good, solid audio connections, heavy rubber cable that matches standard 1 4 headphone cabling, and stress reliefs that look like they'll take some abuse."
_
"Provides a good, solid connection."
_
"Connections are good and secure."
_
"Great connection on both ends, doesn't pop out or disconnect randomly like some others."
_

_
"90 Degree 1 8 inch stereo male plug to 1 4 stereo female jack works great."
_
"'s jack The right-angle 3 5mm male plug is perfect for notebook computers, cell phones and other devices because it extends from the device using as little space as possible and reduces leveraged strain upon the jack into which it is inserted."
_
"Performs as if a perfect fit into all 3.5mm jacks within which I plan to use it (notebook computer, portable media players, boombox, etc.)"
_
"Perfect for hooking up my Sennheiser headphones with a 1 4 jack to the headphone jack on the front of my computer tower."
