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

    • Cheap but Great
      Verified Purchase

      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 !
      Verified Purchase

      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
      Verified Purchase

      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!!
