Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"Honestly it's all a little confusing to me so I'm just glad Headset Buddy has so many adapters to choose from, that I picked the right one, and that it works so well."
_
"This adapter is not compatible with my phone."
_
"I bought a number of adapters in an attempt to get the two 3.5mm headset plugs (one mike plug and one audio out plug) to work with the 2.5mm jack on the phone."
_
"This adapter is not very common, but perfect for adapting a PC style headset to the cordless phones at my office."
_
"Not quite sure what the problem is, would love to use this headset if I could get this adapter to work."
_
"While using the adapter, I wasn't able to consistently connect with the phone."
_
"I can then put a good noise cancelling PC type headset on the adapter to filter out the background noise and other people talking."
_
"The adapter is kind of heavy so seems to be good quality and definitely works AOK."
_
"This adapter makes me very happy as it allows me to use my existing computer headset for talking on my chordless land line phone handset which needs a 2.5mm plug."
_
"I bought this adapter for my mom so she could use a comfortable headset when working work from home."
_
"The idea for the adapter is good in theory, but when received I found that the jacks didn't properly fit and took a lot of fanagling just to get sound the come through."

Connection

Connection:
"Both times I at first thought I was having call connection problems (I use Ooma, which is great.)."
_
"This is a problem if you have a noisy background, don't hear well, or are connected on a call with poor sound quality on the sending end."
_
"The problem seemed to be in the connection block where the 2.5 mm phone cord splits into the two 3.5 mm cords for the mic and headphones."
_
"I expect eventual failure, just the nature of the connection, but this premature 2-3 month failure is unacceptable."
_
"I have averaged about 2-3 months on each angled one before it fails with an intermittent connection at the base of the plug."
_
"I had to push hard to make the connection and pull hard to remove them."
_
"Perfect clarity of sound, and no hassle connecting it! "
_
"Both times I at first thought I was having call connection problems (I use Ooma, which is great.)."
_
"I have a nice headset with separate connections for the headphone and mic."
_
"While on a call, a complete fluke happened; my elbow rested on the headphone connection and I was immediately able to hear in both the left and right headset (thus mimicking stereo sound)."
_
"However the 3.5mm plugs fit, but do not stay connected at all and slide out easily."

Connector

Connector:
"I tested it with other phones to isolate the problem and it is this connector."
_
"Voice chat comes right to the headset sound stays at the TVMy only complaint is the Pink and green connectors are like vice grips once a 3.5 jack it plugged in."
_
"However, even with very careful use the soldered connection inside the molded phone jack becomes loose (or broken)."
_
"In seeking a solution I have used nylon ties and duct tape to stabilize the wiring and it's connectors, not a pretty sight."
_
"I prefer this flexible type adapter that provides more stress relief over the stubby molded plug adapter that, in my experience, can cause stress damage to cell phone jacks."
_
"This works great with my PC headset with 3.5mm jack and this is easy to use with my land line telephone 2.5mm jack."
_
"I had originally thought the part I received was faulty, and the customer service representative apologized sincerely for the product, sending me a different one as well as sending me one that hooked a PC headset to the 2.5 jack."
_
"The idea for the adapter is good in theory, but when received I found that the jacks didn't properly fit and took a lot of fanagling just to get sound the come through."
_
"This items works perfectly with the audio jack!"

Controller

Controller:
"So I'm very pleased with the adaptor, but I guess if I didn't have the qwerty keyboard controller attachment on my controller then I'd definitely be upset to the point where I'd have to look for something else."
_
"When using with an Xbox 360 controller, it has a VERY hard time staying plugged in to the controller, this causes serious static problems due to the plug slipping out of the port and gets very aggravating."
_
"bought this for my xbox 360 controller to work with my PC headset and it works perfect."
_
"it's a little loose in the Xbox 360 controller but fits well in the madcatz controller."
_
"this is gonna do what it needs to but i got it for my xbox 360 controller and it fits good but moving around makes wires move making a crackling sound that ppl online complain about just a heads up for any1 getting for same reason i did other than that 1 problem it is great"
_
"I am using this product along with a PC headset (Altec Lansing) and an Xbox 360 controller, and the 2.5mm plug works and fits in the controller fine, even stays in great."

_
"The 2.5 plug fits snuggly as well as the 3.5 females ones."
_
"The audio levels are compatible, and it should work with any phone that has the circular plug."
_
"I have a headset with 2 earpieces and is a good quality product, but struggled to get the 3.5mm plugs to work with an adapter that would let me use it with my radio phone's 2.5mm plug."
_
"This adapter works well until the wiring that goes into the 2.5mm plug starts to come undone."
_
"So the adapter serves a very useful purpose although I hesitate about recommending it primarily due to the loose fit of the 2.5mm plug."
