    • Cassette Adapter

      Extremely cheap- mainly the reason I bought this particular one, but you get what you pay for. Works with most cars, easy to use, although the biggest thing is that the sound quality could be better. It may just be my car (I have a 2006 Acura TL) but the sound volume goes in and out slightly- it's barely noticeable but if you do start to notice it it gets rather annoying. Another thing is the sound quality in general isn't great. The bass and highs are present, but the tone is lacking, which makes for a very flat sound and not the rich sound I'm used to with headphones. Overall I'm still happy with it just because I didn't want to take time to burn 100 CDs with all my music and because it was less than *** including shipping.

    • Works well in our van

      No auxiliary input on our van so we got this to play music off our phones. Works well. Easy to use. Pretty food sound. Great value.

    • I guess it would work??

      We bought this to use in an older car that had a cassette deck - but it doesn't work = we aren't sure if it's the device or the deck bu the "cassette" won't stay in the deck - it just immediately ejects when you try to put it in - so we can't get it to work at all and have no other vehicles to try it out on... Can say we know of others who are using a set up like this and are happy with it - just didn't work for us.

    • Perfect... except for one thing

      The audio quality is actually very very good. It's perfect. Well almost perfect. If you own a car with a radio that has auto rewind it likes to eject and randomly rewind itself. However, this can easily be fixed by opening it up and taking the extra rewind gears out and leaving the center 3 gears. For even older cars that don't have an auto rewind function, it's perfect. If your car is newer and has that function, removing those gears are your best bet. While I would recommend this to a friend and it works now, that detail kept me from giving this product a full 5 stars.

    • Did not work at all!

      This thing did not work at all. Not worth the shipping cost which was greater than the product cost.

    • Cheap but Great

      At first all of my friends laughed at me because I had this old school adapter, but once I started playing my iphone on it, they fell in love with it and so did I. I knew that I didn't want to buy one of those expensive adapters, so I just purchased this one for so cheap. It's easy to use and plays your music better than any CD. It plays ipods, iphones, mp3s, and any other thing that plays music, as long as the cord fits.

    • It Works !

      Providing that you are NOT expecting the fidelity quality of your music as if your MP3 was plugged directly into the receiver, this is an excellent choice. I use this to listen to my smartphone ( Pandora, music, etc.) in a vehicle that is used for occasional longer trips. Around town it dosen't matter to me as local radio is good enough but it is nice to be able to integrate my smartphone for those longer trips. Sound quality is only so-so ( imagine normal but with pillows over the speakers). Good enough for my my purposes though, as I do not want to go to the expense of changing radios or expensive input wiring for this vehicle. ( And the FM broadcast gizmos set to "unused' FM stations do not work due to constant interference ). For the price, this adapter is a BARGAIN.... Just remember to keep your sound expections to 'basic listening' here and I think that most users will be more than satisfied with this adapter.

    • Pretty Good

      The cassette adapter works pretty well. I bought essentially the same thing at a retail store for $27.99. What a rip-off! When I got home I looked on Overstock, bought this and returned the store-bought cassette adapter. The price cannot be beat! The sound quality is excellent. When the music is playing low you can definitely hear the gears of the cassette, but with the music at a normal listening level the turning gears are not audible. Thank you, Overstock!!
