    + Works

    - Breaks easily within a week or two (I bought 3 and each had the same fate)
    - Hook to clip onto tie/shirt is weak.

    I have had two of these.

    The first set failed where the cable meets the 3.5mm connector after less than a month, as Griffin did not design in enough strain relief.

    The second set failed in the same way.

    The clip also broke off very quickly, probably the first or second time I caught the cable on a door handle.

    Ther product therefore gets a FAIL, which is a shame as it was otherwise a nice product.

    I was really excited when I realised these existed as I had a pair of headphones I really liked and they do exact what they say on the tin. Simply plug your favourite headphones into the jack socket and Bob's your Uncle.

    The reason I have only given these 3 stars is that after only a few months there is copper cable showing at both the jack and microphone ends. For some reason Griffin have chosen a fabric finish for the cable which means that it 'bulges' at both ends which attracts significant wear. They haven't failed yet but it is only a matter of time.

    If you are super careful with your headphones then consider buying these. If like most people you will expose these to normal wear and tear I would look else where.

    Wanted this so that I could use my Sennheiser Noise Cancelling headphones with my iPhone. Simple to use, pretty good build quality and so far, works just as described. As this unit has quite a long lead however, when combined with the lead connected to the headphones there IS a lot of wire hanging. To rectify this I basically 'double folded' the leads against each other with the mic and control button at about chest level, and used two little pieces of black electrician's tape to hold them in place. This shortens the wires, looks fine, and works well. Alternatively, you could just 'gather the excess wire up' in your pocket. Overall I recommend this product!

    I got this item at the discount price of £4.99 - what a brilliant purchase. It's easy to use and converts your existing headphones so they also have a mic input. I've tested it on iPhone and on Blackberry and both work great. The play/pause/rewind/forward function also works a treat, simply a case of single/double/triple clicking the built in button.

    Some people have complained about the (long) length of the cable. Seems good to me - and I happen to use it with some short-cabled earpieces, so no problem. Plus you can guarantee if the cable was shorter, then there'd be people complaining about that!

    I like the fact the cable has a rugged "cord" type surface - it's a bit like the feel of a shoelace, which actually feels quite solid and helps it from getting tangled. Feels and looks like a quality product and for the money I paid, well worth it.

    I'm on my third of these now, and I'll be buying more. Why keep buying them if they fail? Well, I've tried most of the other similar products that are around the same price or cheaper and this is much better - while it works. On average, the ones I've had have lasted about 6 months of use almost every day before failing where the cable joins the jack plug. I'm trying an experiment with my current one of wrapping this clearly sensitive area with duct tape while it's new to see if that extends the life any.

    When they've failed, I've looked to see about repairing them myself, but the wires used is so fine that it's proved impractical and is also no surprise why it fails so easily. This skimping in this one aspect is a pity as otherwise, it's a great product - if only it took a bit more wear...but I'd still recommend it as the best choice, just budget to replace it fairly regularly

    UPDATE: I have now ordered my 5th an 6th of these in anticipation of the 2 I have now failing so as not to be without one when they do. To clarify, I have tried 6 or 7 different makes of similar devices and won't be ordering any of the others again, even ones which still "work"

    Just a quick comment - this item is listed on amazon as "Griffin SmartTalk Headphone Adapter and Control Mic For iPhone and Mobile Phones"

    BUT it doesn't work with the Samsung Galaxy S. I can't comment about any other Android phones or smart phones, but on the Galaxy S the sound quality is poor and quiet when listening to music through the adaptor (though improves if the button is held down?) and the signal through the mic is very poor for the person on the other end of the call.

    To be fair to the manufacturer, the packaging of the product clearly states "for iPhone" and makes no claim about other phones, but the Amazon listing that I am leaving this comment on, is misleading..

    when I got it, and I got it very promptly. It worked great, did exactly what I wanted it to. Allowed me to use my sennheiser headphones with my new iPhone, without loosing the inline remote the iPhone's headphones come with. The glory day's lasted a couple of months, during which I'd have rated this product 5 stars. To my dismay however they didn't last, and sound issues started to appear regardless of the care I took of it.

    So, 2 stars because the product was great, but didn't last for me. my solution in the end was to get Bose headphones for Christmas and me no longer needing them.

    Hope that's useful
