Fine sound, bad mic – 2.5mm Male to 3.5mm Female Audio Adapter with Microphone for Nokia 5300/6300/5200/6120 Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- The sound quality is great. Using this adapter with an MWg Atom Life and Koss Plug headphones I used to listen to music and I could hear all perceivable frequencies nicely.
Cons:
- The cable is a somewhat short – when I had my PDA in my pants, the clip attached to the top of my t-shirt, the cable was stretched and the PDA was literally hanging on it.
- The microphone was totally useless for me. I had to shout really loud while holding it before my mouth to be heard.
- The strain protection on the cable near the jack is too hard and thus useless, the cable will break really soon.
Other:
I didn't use the button very often but when I tried it, it just worked.
Bottomline:
This is a useful adapter if your main use for it is to listen to music. However, if you want to use the mic, I suggest sku.22829 instead.
