4.0 out of 5 stars Airplane headphone socket
I purchased 3 of these (for the family), about two weeks ago and have just used them on an Emirates long haul flight.
All three work perfectly and being able to use our own headphones as opposed to the standard airline issue was a pleasure.
The build quality is not brilliant but certainly what you would expect for the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars FAIL
I ordered 5 of these adaptors for my family to travel on holiday and was extremely dissapointed to find that 3 out of the 5 did not function.

1 of them was blocked and would not accept the headphone jack.

2 of them had an open circuit within them causing no sound signal to be transmitted.

The 2 that did work can be made to fail simply by...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little adaptor but beware!, 26 Feb 2012

This is such a cracking little adaptor which allowed me to use my JVC Xtreme Xplosives in-ear headphones. It meant that the sound was so much better but also as a bonus this type of headphones also eliminate so much external noise and can double up as ear-defenders on long flights.
However, keep the volume down because PA announcements are extrememly loud to compensate for the crappy airline headphones. It can seriously hurt your ears as I discovered!

I ordered 5 of these adaptors for my family to travel on holiday and was extremely dissapointed to find that 3 out of the 5 did not function.

1 of them was blocked and would not accept the headphone jack.

2 of them had an open circuit within them causing no sound signal to be transmitted.

The 2 that did work can be made to fail simply by applying pressure on the headphone jack where it inserts into the socket of the adaptor.

I noticed when plugging in headphones in each one that they each felt different and had a different tension when inserting the plug.

There seems to be no consistency or quality control in the manufacture of them.

I realise they are very cheap so I wasnt expecting anything too fancy - but I do expect an item to WORK no matter how cheap it may be.

Now I face the hassle of trying to get them refunded and then shopping for an alternative.

Very Very frustrating - if you want an adaptor that works then spend a few quid and go for something that actually works!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth a plug, 18 Mar 2013

Bought this because I wasn't sure that airlines would give you a headphone adapter but they did, however, I tested that it works fine and it has slightly more solid-looking gold-coloured contacts compared with the freebies, and it's nice to know I have this in reserve for a very small cost.

Well designed product and excellent quality at very low price. The difference between using good quality headphones with this connector and the airline-supplied ones is amazing.

The first order went astray but the seller very promptly replaced it. Excellent service.

Just returned from America, Flying with Monarch airlines. These adapters worked brilliantly with our mp3/ ipod headphones. Saved us £5 per pair for monarch ones. Excellent piece of kit.

Does what it says on the Tin and allows you to connect a 'normal' set of headphones to the dual-connector system that is found on some aeroplanes. Be aware though that some newer airlines employ what looks like a dual-connector system for their on board noise cancelling headphones (BA 767 to Japan) which is designed with one normal size hole (for the headphones) and one 'other' size hole to power the noise cancelling supplied headphones. In this case just plug your headphones into the 'normal' size hole.

I bought 2 of these for my chidlren to use on an international flight to South Africa. They worked perfectly and meant they could use their own headphones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only a minor problem at first, 30 April 2013

At first it seemed impossible to plug a headphone jack in. I reported this to the supplier and they offered an immediate replacement or refund.
However, I persevered a bit and eventually overcame this difficulty. After one insertion, everything was OK. This applied to both of the adaptors I bought together.
One past this stage, very happy. Seems to be a good quality product that works well.

I bought a new pair of headphones for air travel, and despite them being already supplied with an adaptor I elected to buy this gold plated product as back-up. It turned out to be a good decision, as the adaptor which came with the headphones had a dodgy connection, but the gold plated one worked. The sound quality through it was good and no nasty hissing or crackling.
