      If you're looking for sound quality, keep looking.

      I had to replace my old cassette adapter because the wire was dying, so I decided to purchase this one due to the durable appearance of its wire. That was a terrible mistake. The first thing I noticed when I put it into the cassette player was that it made an annoying noise as it was being read. I figured that it wouldn't be too big of a deal since I turn my music up loudly and that would drown it out. That annoying noise from the cassette was replaced by static and extremely quiet music. I turned my phone's sound all the way up and I could still barely hear the music. I turned the radio's volume up and the static was just overpowering. On top of that, I could barely hear out of my left speaker. I took it out and put in my old Philips adapter to see if it was the speakers that were messed up. Nope. As soon as I plugged in the old adapter, the music was loud, the bass was pumpin', no static, and I could hear out of the left speaker. I absolutely do not recommend this product at all. But it does have a cool, shiny button that lets you play, pause, skip, and rewind, so there's that. Seriously though, DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR SOUND QUALITY.

      Exceeded my expectations

      I purchased this to allow me to play my iPod music in a 90s Jeep with a cassette deck as a connection option. All I wanted was the basic corded connection, but I later realized this has the one-touch control button for added functionality. Very nice. For music, one click is play/pause... two clicks is forward one track... three clicks is reverse one track. Really, this is the only safe way to do any of that while driving. There are simple phone functions too, but I won't need them. As far as the sound quality... it is going through a tape deck. It sounds fine and is better than nothing! Also some of the quality is the connection of the adapter to the tape head, the volume of the iPhone/iPod, and the original radio and speakers. I've tried the devices that plug into car outlets and broadcast over the radio on a specific channel, but they never work for me. A corded connection is still the best. While you can get a basic cassette adapter and cord for cheaper, the one-touch button functionality of the iSimple is well worth it.

      Not Top Quality

      I have an old Mercedes with a tape deck so I need to use cassette adapters to play music from my iPhone. I bought this one because it was the only one the store I was in had available at that time. I found the microphone button very annoying because if it was slightly touched by anything, it would launch into Voice Control or start fast forwarding my music and it's not easy to stop it especially if you're driving and not wanting to be distracted. And after only 2 months it stopped functioning properly - I have to swivel the plug around in whatever iPhone or iPod being used to try to catch it at the right spot for surround sound. I never put weight or stress on the wire so I don't know why it weakened like that so shortly after purchasing it. I wish I could have gotten my money back.

      Did not work in my car's cassette player

      In principle, this sounded like a good idea. I have a 11 year old Toyota with a good sound system that plays cassettes and CD's, just doesn't have an auxiliary input for the music on my phone. When I put the Call Cassette in my car system, it tries to play it like a regular cassette. Sound from my phone comes through for about a second, then it senses the end of the tape, auto-reverses and tries to play the "other side." When that fails, it just ejects the tape. Tried multiple times and even read my Toyota owners manual to see if there's a way to turn off the auto-reverse function but saw no way to do that. Contacted support at isimple solutions and they advised to return the cassette to "swap it out." I think I'll just ask for my money back.

      I bought this before taking a long road trip back in June. I was so used to buying cheap adaptors that would only last 2-3 months at a time but losing most of the sound quality after a month. I do not like putting a lot of money into my current car( a 2001 Jetta) because it has had so many issues. But I spent a few extra bucks on this and it was the best decision I could have made!! I love the control button, I am able to keep my eyes on the road and skip a song or to take a phone call and not have to unplug my phone from its adaptor to talk. And after using it every single day since I have purchased it, it still sounds like I just bought it! You need to watch that the volume on your phone/device is not all the way up, and control most of the volume through the controls in your car, but other than that it is fantastic!

      Terrible

      This item does not even deserve one star. It is a piece of junk. I bought it for a 14 hour drive & it started malfunctioning immediately. It randomly made horrible loud popping/crackling noises, would stop playing for no reason, and/or my iPhone would switch to Siri, asking ‘what can I help you with?’. So incredibly frustrating & annoying. And when it did actually work & play music the sound quality was horrible. Pulling on the cord coming out of the tape deck sometimes helped improve the sound but just for a minute or two. I am going to return this piece of garbage - hoping Best Buy does the right thing & gives me my $ back.

      Connected iSimple to my kindle Kindle Fire (which works great with earphones). Inserted iSimple in the cassette player in my 1997 Ford truck (original installation). Lots of clikity clack and then low volume sound from left speaker only. Removed cassette, reinserted, reversed direction of cassette player to change elevation of pick-up head in cassette player - only plays in right to left mode with left speaker only with low sound output. Went to iSimple website but found only iSimple promotion with no trouble shooting help. Ejected iSimple and put in trash can.

      I gave this a 4 star because most tape adapters stop working after a month, if you buy the ten dollar cassette adapters (you know what I mean.) This has a nice long plug in that perfectly fits in my iPhone. It has lasted me a couple months and is still in perfect condition. The reason why I didn't give it a 5 star because sometimes it activates voice commands on my iPhone stopping the music . I also hear there is a new Bluetooth that connects to your cigarette lighter. Might be way better then cassette adapter.
