Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gold Plated Airplane Headphone Socket Adaptor / Aircraft / Airplane / Airline Headphone Adaptor - Twin 3.5mm Mono Jack Plugs to 3.5mm Stereo Jack Socket - For use on most major airlines - Comaptibles E-Shop (Electronics)
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!
