    Has anyone used this (2.5mm to 3.5mm) headphone adaptor?

    Looks interesting. I'd be especially interested in hearing how well the microphone works (especially being placed so close to the phone as opposed to the OEM version, which places it closer to the earbuds)...

    You may also want to check out the recent thread called MP3's through Car Stereo. Someone posted a link to a site for an adapter. They have one a notch up and a notch down from this one.

    You can use it with the phone as well as "regular" head phone.

    Forget it. I got one and it has two problems:

    1. Mike is very weak
    2. The 3.5 mm side does not connect well with some devices that I have (drops a channel for Belkin FM modulator)

    Does this one fit snug or does it too drop any channels?

    I tried this one and within a couple of days the "retractable" compartment came apart and I threw the adapter away.

    Yikes,

    For $27.00 I would have expected a solid unit. Maybe I'll just go for the $6.50 one on the site.

    I also bought the pc-mobile one and it came out of the box with the insulation cut at the plug. the wire is so thin i don't think it will last very long... one wrong pull and you could just rip the cord in two.

    I've had the PC Mobile one for about a year now and it works fine with the Belkin modulator. I therefore have my 11 speaker phone in my vehicle and the little mike is good enough that few folks recognize I'm on a cell phone or speaker phone.

    I didn't have the quality issues mentioned by the other posters. Perhaps they don't build them like they used to.
    In every belief is a lie.

    I just got the PCMobile one a few weeks ago and use it with a cassette adapter in my car. Works great. Well worth the 27$.

    Am thinking about doing a line in mod on my car radio to eliminate the cassette adapter.
