Purchased from Kenable. Delivery fine, but item quality poor - even at the price. Fell apart within 2 days, but luckily a bit of glue sorted it out, so still working. Why isn't it glued properly in the first place?
Looked sturdy enough but broke on my first visit to the gym and I hadn't even snagged it! Rather that I had tried to unplug it from my Sansa Clip MP3 player and the 3.5mm pin remained in the unit while the plastic casing came away and looks nigh on impossible to fix.
It still works with the wires exposed but I'll be going for a better designed jack socket that I've since found.
Absolute rubbish. Terrible build quality, even poundland has beeter build quality items than these! I ordered 2. BOTH were flimsy, the male socket kept popping out of one, the other the plastic was splitting in two (I think the design is two moulded half "clicked" together) - very very weak.
I know there are cheap adapters out there which have cheap rough connections that "might" exhibit interference/crackling during use but this is fine, no issues at all and for the low low price of £1.10 what is there to complain about? Used on my Sennheiser IE80 (custom cable) it works a treat. No increase in resistance either (measured with multimeter).
