Does what it is intended for, description is wrong – old plated 3.5mm Female to Male 3.5mm mic + Male 3.5mm Headphone Adapter Reviews

Pros:
Does what it's supposed to do, not what the description says (see other thoughts).
Works very well.
Cons:
I can't think of any, except that the description is wrong.
Other:
This adapter splits a 4-contact-connector for the iPod/iPhone into two 3-contact-connectors for normal use (like the inputs/outputs of a sound card). The iPod/iPhone connector has 4 contacts: Ground, Left, Right and Mic. The adapter splits this connector into Ground/Left/Right for an audio source and into Ground/Mic for an audio input. With this you can use your iPod/iPhone headset with your laptop.
Bottomline:
If you want to use your loved iPod/iPhone headset on your laptop or somewhere else with two normal connectors for stereo and mic (for Skype, TeamSpeak, etc.), use this adaptor. Works.
