_
"I had a different cassette adapter that produced excellent, rich sound, but needed to replace it because of a short in the cord."

Audio

Audio:
"The connector is quite flimsy, with in a matter of days the audio crackles when moving the device its connected to."
_
"Well, this product arrived with the cord already shorted out for me, which was extremely frustrating when stacked on top of the horrible audio!"
_
"I first tried one by the brand Monster, which only worked properly out of the right channel (left channel was too soft and lacked full bass and treble), and then an off-brand model from K-mart, which just had downright terrible audio quality."
_
"But since I didn't hear any audio, I thought this adaptor was broken."
_
"Just pop in the cassette, plug 3.5mm male into your phone, and enjoy your favorite streaming audio with great sound!"
_
"If you have your phone on medium volume and use the car audio to turn it up it sounds perfect."
_
"I found the audio quality of this device to be superior to the FM transmitters."
_
"Works great and the audio is pretty good."
_
"i got this one mainly for my car... since it has a combo cd cassette deck(which is awesome) this little gem does the trick...i use this to play my mp3 players (sony and an ipod ) the audio quality is superb.. its crystal clear.. i also use this in the house on my stereo system... this is a great buy!"

Cable

Cable:
"Well, this product arrived with the cord already shorted out for me, which was extremely frustrating when stacked on top of the horrible audio!"
_
"I purchased this to replace another (Insignia brand) that I had and accidentally damaged the cable on."
_
"It was good at first, but then the cable started to damage rather easily where only one side of the speakers worked on the car, until it just didn't work."
_
"Only down side is how flimsy the cord is."
_
"If anyone else with low volume problems hasn't tried switching the cord so the cassettee can be turned over, try it."
_
"The problem area with other one is where the cord connects to the tape and on the other end of the cord where it connects to your audio player."
_
"Sound quality is great, but cable is very thin and will probably soon break."
_
"Well, this product arrived with the cord already shorted out for me, which was extremely frustrating when stacked on top of the horrible audio!"

Music

Music:
"It made so much noise, I couldn't enjoy the music."
_
"It has a horrible clicking sound and the music comes out sounding like it has a muffler attached to it! "
_
"At no time did it sound horrible, just that the balance of the music was thrown off and the bass without the boost was ample enough."
_
"Note, if you are using any sort of MP3 player, the sound quality won't be as good as a CD as MP3's files compress the music."
_
"Also I like the sound and it does not make an annoying sound while I play my music like other cassette adapters that I've had."
_
"No directions needed; Great accessory for listening to music in cars without either Bluetooth, or a stereo Jack, but has a cassette player."
_
"The sound is very good for the price and the base adds a nice thump to the music."
_
"I have a monsoon sound system so I am used to clear, loud music!"
_
"I wanted to be able to play music from my iPod through the cassette player."
