What's great about it: Easy to use, no static like fm modulators, CD/sux like sound
What's not so great: Doesnt Charge ipod, so bring a car charger for long drives
Well, after using fm mods i decided that it was time to move on and buy something else. i had 2 choices 1. get an ipod adapter for my car (03 Audi A4) for about 170 dollars or buy this adapter for 19$. I did my share of research and settled on the cassette adapter. the verdict: I love it. Now for some cars it may not work as well but for my 2003 Audi A4 with the Bose Symphony system it works very very well. theres no clicking at all all you need to do is set NR to off and adjust ipod vol to medium. Then you can use your stereo controls/wheel controls to adjust volume. Very Simple, very clear sound great buy overall
I would recommend this to a friend!

What's great about it: Inexpensive, simple
What's not so great: Mediocre sound
Probably the best cheap solution to playing an iPod or MP3 player in the car. It's much easier to use and cheaper than an FM transmitter, the only downside being the sound quality. If you have a cassette player in your car and you want an easy way to play your music, this is definately the way to go.

What's great about it: Can handle high levels of volume
What's not so great: Still got the tape "clicking" sometimes
This is my 3rd tape adapter for my iPod - first was Monster Cable, then Dynex (?) - which was the worst, and now this Sony one.
Monster Cable was really good, but eventually it started "clicking" rather loudly. This Sony one is probably my favorite, and as it allows me to crank my iPod almost all the way up before any distortion is heard. Then I can just use my car radio's volume knob to adjust.
I would recommend this to a friend!

What's great about it: Very easy to use
What's not so great: Doesn't work with all cars
This sony cassette player with the attached ipod wire works really well. It is also easy to use.Of course cars bought recently won't have a cassette player so you won't be able to use this but if your car has a cassette player, I would totally recommend getting this. This offers you the ability to connect your ipod or mp3 player or anything that uses a headphone wire jack to connect your media and entertainment to the car and it's easy. Connect the wires and your done, there is no other software installation or anything.
I would recommend this to a friend!

What's great about it: Produces clean, great sound from your ipod or mp3 player to you car or home stereo. Easy to use.
What's not so great: Can be hard to use in some home stereos. Not wireless.
I purchased this product so that i could listen to my ipod nano through my car and my home stereo. The product works great. All you have to do is put the "dummy" cassette into your stereo, and plug the cord coming out of the cassette into your mp3 or ipod. The sound quality is as good as it gets.
I would recommend this to a friend!

What's great about it: good sound quality, easy to use
This cassette adapter does what it's supposed to do - bridging two non-consecutive generations of audio technology. It works great, and is compatible with anything that has a headphone jack. That includes pretty much all portable audio players.
I would recommend this to a friend!

What's great about it: Easy to use
What's not so great: none
I bought this so I could listen to books on CD in my car that has a cassette tape deck. Now I can listen to CDs or cassettes. It was super easy to set up. You just plug the cord into your portable CD player and pop the other end into to your cassette deck and you're ready to listen to CDs.
