Seemed worth a try but sadly didn't work ! UPDATE - Second one did
on 6 September 2014
ORIGINAL REVIEW 1 Star
Sadly it didn't work. I've tried it with 3 different docks (Apple and non-Apple) and various devices iPods (various iOS versions) and an Android tablet and nothing worked.
In most cases the pairing happened and the device seemed paired and audio was apparently playing but no sound came out.
I've lots of other Bluetooth stuff which worked.
1 star for Amazon taking it back !
UPDATED REVIEW 3 Stars
The supplier kindly sent a second one to try. This "sort of" works. I now think I understand what the problem is, read on to see if it will work for you.
The dock I have it works with is a JBL dock, I guess fairly old and fairly "dumb" in that it provides little control of the iOS device.
Neither of my Apple docks work. One is used via USB to a Denon stereo, the other via analogue audio and a phono lead to an old Hi-Fi amp. I conclude that in both of the Apple dock cases, the dock needs to "recognise" the device. This theory is supported by the fact that plugging an iOS device into the JBL dock I sometimes get a message on the iPhone saying "this is not a supported device".
Conclusion, if the dock will play audio whatever is plugged into the connector, this eSync device will work (assuming you don't get a faulty one), if the dock "validates" the connected device, you won't get audio.
If I'm correct I suggest more information is added to the listing by the supplier.
