5.0 out of 5 stars Seamless phone/satnav audio through your existing FM radio, 31 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to say, I was expecting the overall experience of this FM transmitter to be on par with the low price.
Thankfully, I have been impressed so far.
I was most worried about some reports that the plug was either too tight or too loose - critical to its usefulness. Luckily, it fits my outlet perfectly. Much tighter than a normal plug - exactly what you want.
The gooseneck is rigid enough not to flop about but not so rigid that the plug moves in the outlet when you adjust it.
Voice prompts (from a very upbeat sounding chap) tell you if it is paired etc. It can be powered off if not needed with a long press of the bottom most button.
OK, for this price, you can't expect miracles and so you won't be able to easily navigate track stored on an SD card inserted into the side but you can play them nevertheless which is a nice bonus at this price point. It has an AUX IN socket if the inputted device has no bluetooth.
Audio quality from you to the distant caller will be largely dependant on how close your 12V outlet is to your mouth. If you have a large SUV and the socket is very distant from your driving position (say), then you will sound very distant! Without the option to fit an auxiliary microphone, this is just a fact of life.
For simply hearing phone/sat nav output through your speakers, you can't go wrong.

Finally, just to clarify as I have seen it asked several times in other reviews....

You tune your radio to any free frequency, then match the same frequency on the transmitter. Set it to a spare preset on the radio. Now you can either hear radio via one of your existing radio presets OR whatever is being fed into this transmitter through your newly stored preset. You can't listen to the radio and still hear this transmitter. Just like you can't listen to Radio 2 at the same time as Radio 3. In other words, it is one preset or another - you cannot mix the sound. Hope that helps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Near the top of its class, 31 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very compact, solidly built item. Thick, tough looking wire. Useful built in switch (red bit in photo) for those with always-on outlets.
Can be easily velcro'd to the side of the dash somewhere and the amply long wire routed neatly out of the way.

You could say, what could be bad about such a simple item? But I have seen some very shoddy competitors to this in my time and this is very good by comparison.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly acceptable. Great price., 31 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cons: Audio quality is acceptable but not brilliant.
Headband adjustment range is small (good for kids, not so good if your head is the size of an award-winning melon)
They feel cheap.
Pros: They ARE cheap!!
They work perfectly, straight out of the box with no setup needed.
They are 2000 times (approx) cheaper than a main dealer 'official' part.

The kids are probably going to smash them to bits anyway so this is a good price.
FYI, in my case, they were used on a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sealed from the elements, 27 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For a few pounds, this is a must-have item to protect the pins on your 13pin plug from weathering when not plugged in. When mated, it has a reassuring feel to it as it locks in place against the built in rubber seal.
The three small holes could be used as tether holes to keep it close by when not in use, or you could mount it permanently to a convenient surface so that you can plug into it even easier.
All electrical connections that could suffer potential weathering should be looked after and this is perfect for that.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid rattle., 27 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Feels solid and up to the job.
Grey '12S' cable is thicker than the black '12N' cable which suggests it correctly has larger gauge wires to handle the power connections.
When I first received it, there was a rattle coming from inside when I moved it. I opened the plug and found that the screw in the terminal not being used had fallen out.
A simple fix. Despite this, I would still rather see a 'serviceable' plug with screw terminals than a moulded plug.
A reasonably priced item considering the components you are getting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should..., 4 Jun. 2017
This is a sturdy case for the price. The optional slide on front cover protects the glass well. For those that like rubber-style cases but can't find one that adequately protects the glass, this is the one for you. If you dropped this from a standing height, the rubber should take the shock out of the fall and the glass will be protected if you were unlucky for it to land on the sort of concrete that would otherwise smash it.
I offer no guarantees of course! But for certain it is vastly better than no case at all and cheaper than the brand-leader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reliable. Fast. Cheap. Buy, 15 Aug. 2016
This review relates to the Nikon version of this item and all features mentioned were tested on a Nikon D200 & D500 with SB800 flash and a studio strobe...
Ask what you need from a flash trigger.
Has to be responsive with no delay. Has to be reliable. Has to have multiple connection options to maximise compatibility. Has to be well made if it is not going to fall apart...
This is all of those and more.
A lot of the 'cheaper varieties use 433Mhz but this uses the more robust 2.4GHz and provides 16 channel options - very easy to set and check using the 4 DIP switches - no complex menus or setup that could allow for confusion.
I personally think it is solid and well made and the connection options are very comprehensive.
It can be a simple remote control (with immediate or 5 sec delay modes). The Nikon version comes with two types of connector that should suit almost every model, one being the 10 pin connector the other the mini square one.
It can also respond to the camera's shutter firing (either mounted to the hot-shoe or connected via an 'old-fashioned' PC socket and then fire a flash connected to the receiver (either mounted directly to the hotshoe or via sync cord that can plug into a pro strobe unit via the 1/4 inch jack)
The receiver has a female hotshoe on top and a male on the base (which also has a 1/4 20 female screw thread) - so loads of mounting options.
The supplied cables are coiled which is a nice touch, enabling them to take some strain but at the same time, not get in the way.
You could add extra receivers and make this into an even more flexible system which is brilliant at this price level.
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pardon?, 1 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really do the job. A little tight if you need to wear for any length of time but that's part of the reason they work so well.
The only very minor issue could be the build quality of the headband and particularly where it attaches to the ear cups. I say 'could' cause I have no way of knowing for sure, the clips just look like they could be the first point of failure.

I have found the lawn is growing a bit long since buying these... for some reason, I have missed the wife asking me to mow it for the last three months :)
