    It does what it's suppose to

    This is what it is - an extension cord for my headphones. What I never liked about coiled cords is the tightness and constant tugging against the headphones. While it may say 20' extension, don't expect to be able to use much more than 10' of it without the cord yanking the headphones, or in my case, earbuds, from your head. I'm always having to stretch the cord out and then finding a seat cushion or something to anchor it with so that it doesn't pull the earbuds from my ears. This is the only way to use a coiled cord and still have some freedom to squirm around in your seat or toss and turn in bed. I'll recommend them because there aren't many other options out there when you walk into a store to grab something like this off the shelf. I also understand the purpose of the coiled cord to act like a shock absorber, which is great when you walk around and listen on your headphones, but for sitting down to listen, you're better off finding a straight, uncoiled cord.

    Awful product at inflated price

    I bought this in an attempt to listen to albums across the room from my stereo - what a horrible waste of money. The adapters included were BOTH either manufactured without any quality control or had been zapped with high voltage and shorted to blazes and back - both completely attenuated the high end of the signal and introduced completely unacceptable noise levels on the low end, to the point of garbling the midrange. The cable itself was so tightly coiled that it was essentially impossible to get 10' of extension out of it, much less the advertised 20' - and the extension attenuated signal so badly that I was required to crank the volume control to the stop in order to get any sort of audible signal out of my 'phones. This is coming back to the store tomorrow, and I will be buying a better quality cable from an online vendor instead!

    Poor Quality, Poor Functionallity

    Sorry, but I bought this cable because of the good rating and good reviews, but I am certainly disappointed. 1. It states the cable is 20 ft, however, don't think you can use it for a longer distance than 6-8 ft. The coil simply pulls your headphones off your head if you try to go further. 2. The quality of the electrical connection is really poor. Utilizing the cable really reduced not only the volume but also the sound quality enormously. Keep looking for an other cable, I am returning mine to Best Buy tomorrow.

    Just What I Was Looking For

    I needed a cord for some wired headphones, and at one time, had a cord with adapters, but it is nowhere to be found. I asked the salesman at the North Olmsted, OH location if the store carried a cord with adaptors to use in a bookshelf system. He said they did and it was exactly what I needed. The length of the cord was good, and extended the distance with the headphone cord as well. The connections were easy and fit the headphones and the bookshelf unit input jack too. I thought I was out of luck as I do have wireless Bluetooth headphones, and unfortunately, cannot be used with an older bookshelf system. I am glad to be using the cord with my headphones again!! Thank you for your help. The price was great, too.

    Works Great, Good Value

    The description of this item (as of this writing) is incorrect: The item is a 20' 1/4" (NOT 3.5mm) extension cable and 1/4"-to-3.5mm and 3.5mm-to-1/4" (NOT 1/8"-to-3.5mm) adapters. (If it were as described, it could not be used to extend either a 1/8" or 3.5mm connection.) This cable is perfect for using my corded headphones while watching TV. It is a particularly good value since it includes the adapters, which allow it to be used in any of 4 configurations: - 1/4"-to-1/4" - 1/4"-to-3.5mm - 3.5mm-to-1/4" - 3.5mm-to-3.5mm

    Don't be mislead by length

    This product does include a few different connections options, which is nice. It also does what it says as far as extending the area in which you can connect headphones. HOWEVER, do not be mislead by the cord length listed. The 20 feet cord is COILED, which means it really has to stretch to reach that length. Once you get beyond 10 feet, tension is created because the coiled cord is "pulling" itself back to being coiled. This is very annoying if you're using headphones at that distance or beyond, and also puts unnecessary stress on the jacks. There are better 20 foot cords out there, unfortunately, none available at Best Buy. This is the only extension cord they offer at that length.

    Not exactly 20'

    I purchased this to use with my headphones for listening at home with my home theater system. I sit about 14 feet from my receiver and my headphones only have a 4 ft. cord. I wanted to have enough slack in the cord so that the cord would lay on the floor and not pull on my head. Even though this cord says it is 20' it really is only about 10. The 20 ' measurement is taken before the cord is coiled up. In order to get this cord to relax I had to stretch and stretch and stretch and it still wants to curl back up. I will probably have to buy another one or a different cord altogether. Other than that, the cord works as it should.

    I have bought this specific product 3 separate times, and everytime it is an absolute let down. 1 out of the 3 works, and even then it is spotty. I’m a podcaster and my guests complain constantly about their ability to hear themselves, but it’s too much of a pain to return them. I wouldn’t purchase this again if it was the last item left to do the job. It was recommended by Best Buy service members, and it upsets me that I can’t trust them to help me pick an option that will actually last.
