    This headphone adapter will CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!

    One knows not where to begin with such a stupendous–nay, life-affirming product. In the annals of human technological achievement, there are the incandescent light bulb, the internal combustion engine, robot-assisted brain surgery and now this Insignia 1/4-to-3.5mm Mini Headphone Jack Adapter. Let me recount to you the wonderment and awe I experienced when I brought my purchase home. Giddy with excitement at the prospect of listening to music via my (admittedly antiquated) smaller headphones, I tore the packaging open, heedless of any instructions there might have been on the cardboard backing of the package. I carefully inserted the headphone jack into the adapter and then slowly inserted it into the little hole on my stereo that has the picture of headphones over it – I had broken 17 others by moving too quickly, too carelessly. I had vowed before God Almighty that I would not make the same mistake this time! I trepidatiously turned my stereo on and lo and behold, all the choirs of Heaven could have been singing directly into my ears, so crisp and clean was the sound coming from the cassette of "Out of the Blue" by Electric Light Orchestra playing on my stereo. I had done it. I had successfully used a headphone adapter. I heaved a heavy sigh. Then the bleakness began to seep into my life, the despair. How would I ever be able to top this moment in time? Had my life reached its zenith, the pinnacle of what would be the story of my life? I had to reach deep into the very depths of my soul for the strength to shout to the world, "THIS HEADPHONE JACK ADAPTER SHALL NOT DEFINE MY LIFE!" The darkness retreated and I could see a beacon of hope, of affirmation. I realized that the only way that this experience could become even more transcendent would be if I were to write a ridiculously long and convoluted review on Bestbuy.com, as their repeated emails to me keep requesting, tempting me with offers of an additional 25 Best Buy bonus points to be added to my account for having done so. Now I have. All is right with the world. Also, it's a headphone jack adapter. It works all right. :)

    I needed a quick and secure/reliable way to connect and disconnect my pro headphones from my tablet (stereo mini-plug connector) to my mixer (1/4" stereo connector, which is what this unit is), which I do often. I also preferred a 'low profile' body - a shorter body casing - to minimize the height and sheering weight (the 'pull' on the connectors when they are plugged in to one another, which puts a lot of stress on the male min plug connector in particular - which, in turn, can cause a poor connection). This connector has a low profile (which is what I wanted). Not much can go wrong with these connectors but I have had defective or loose-fitting units and this one fits perfectly, receives my headphone mini plug connector snugly and snaps in securely. I would buy this brand again!

    In the world of audio, sometimes you run into a situation where the plug you have won't fit in the equipment you want to use. Enter the 1/4"-to-3.5mm Mini Headphone Jack Adapter! With this engineering marvel, you can use your 3.5mm cable, which may be attached to your headphones, ear buds, or other audio gear, and plug it into a piece of equipment that only takes 1/4" plugs. It sounds too good to be true, but this technology exists and really works. I'd rate this six stars, but they only gave me five. If you have a use for such an adapter, I highly recommend this one.

    This adapter worked perfectly for me! I got an old 8 track tape player/recorder at a thrift shop and didn’t have any speakers to test it with. It had the old headphone jack so I figured I could test it with headphones but alas my headphones had the tiny plug. So I bought this adapter and Voila! I was listening to old 8 track tapes. What a trip down memory lane. And it didn’t cost me much! Thanks Best Buy!

    This adapter is fantastic! It slices. It dices. It doubles as a crock pot. It can be used to jump off a dead car battery. I have even personally used this product to plug my headphones into a 1/4 in jack without any assistance or instructions from anyone else! It was really easy to use! I can't believe I waited so long to purchase this life changing product. I also enjoy sarcasm and hiking through the woods.

    Great Headphone Jack Adapter

    Great item. The plug size is standard and allowed me to connect a pair of headphones into my receiver. I could then watch and listen to TV without bothering anyone else with the volume. Works perfectly and was a great price. Best Buy staff new exactly what I was asking for when I walked into the A/V department and had the part I needed. Went to two other stores first thinking they would have one, and not only did the not have one, no one knew what I was looking for. Thank you Best Buy.

    No one at Best Buy or Geek Squad in the store or by phone was able to help us connect a wireless headset so that my hearing impaired husband could listen to TV at a reasonable volume through the headset while I was listening at the same time. As a result the headset adapter and Sony wireless headset were both returned to the store. It would have cost $149 for someone from Geek Squad to come out. We were not willing to pay that for a $110 headset. I doubt that he would have been successful according to all the information we received from your employees.

    Some reviewers think the plastic adapter component it too fragile -- you can find all-metal adapters -- but the adapter is fine for my use which is to plug a 3.5mm stereo plug for a wireless headphone system into the 1/4" jack on the front of my receiver. I also appreciate the fact that Insignia -- a Best Buy house brand -- packages the adapter in easy-to-open packaging: No sharp instruments required to open the display card with the adapter.

    So your kids are learning the piano, you really don't want to hear it, and don't want to drop $100 on professional headphones? Buy this jack for $5, put them on a set of their existing wax-covered ear buds, and plug it into the 1/4" jack on the keyboard. Voila! You're back to watching the game in peace. (And every so often, tell them they're doing a great job. It's just good manners.)

    I recently purchased Yamaha portable grand piano and there's a port in back of the keyboard for audio output. It uses 1/4" jack for the output to speakers and headphone . So I bought this product which converted 1/4" to 3.5 mm which is used commonly and almost every headphone can be used. Instead of buying expensive headphone which have 1/4" jack I bought this product which only cost me $5.25 and now I can play my keyboard even at midnight without disturbing anyone around.

    Ordered this for my son to use in his music class at Elementary School. Arrived at the store to pick up, and decided to buy the remaining four in stock to donate to the school (as many kids still did not have access to these). The associates were wonderful, knew right where they were located, and were a supporting ear in discussing the need for continued funding for our music & arts programs in schools.

    I have ordered adapters before only to experience problems with the connection which is not a lot of fun. These adapters were evidently not quality and no amount of savings can alter the aggravation. This adapter has has fixed my connection trouble and has given me a clear and pleasant result. Thanks for carrying a reliable adapter. I will be viewing Insignia is the future as a first choice in adapters and other related products.

    Worked perfectly! Plugged my headphones into it and plugged the adapter into the output of my guitar amp and was listening to what I was playing perfectly clear. It has a great fit for both headphones and all 1 1/4" output jacks that I have hooked it up to. So glad I bought it and the price was the best in town, definitely unbeatable purchase in my opinion. I am extremely happy with this product, thank you Best Buy!

    This was just the adapter I needed after switching from a receiver with a 3.5mm phone jack to one with a 1/4'' jack. I suppose my headphones came with an adapter originally. But 4 years on, and following a relocation, I could forget about retrieving such a small item. Now with this Insignia adapter, my listening experience is unchanged—I'd never notice there was an adapter in the first place!

    I have been struggling with an adapter I had purchased on eBay from China. That adapter was continually giving me trouble with connection issues I finally got sick and tired of fighting with it so stopped into Bestbuy and asked for their adapter hoping to rid myself on the connection trouble. I plug it in and have not had an issue since. Thank you for providing the adapter that is made to actually work.

    connects 1/8 inch headphone cable to 1/4 inch jack

    I bought this adapter so I could plug my Beats headphones with a 1/8 inch stereo plug at the end of the cable into my Focusrite Scarlett recording interface which has a 1/4 inch stereo jack. The adapter works perfectly. No problems. I've also used this adapter to connect the 1/8 inch headphones to an older stereo receiver with a 1/4 inch stereo jack. This also works perfectly. No problems.

    We purchased this adapter to use with our keyboard. We wanted to listen to our music being played with our favorite headphones. The durability of the adapter, and the way and it securely fits with our headphones, was quite surprising. We appreciate the snug fit, and the sound is not impeded because of the adapter.

    I purchased this headphone jack adapter to be able to use my headphones with my 1970's vintage Pioneer receiver and reel-to-reel tape deck. I ordered on-line and used store pick-up. The item was available same day and picking up at the store was quick and convenient. The adapter itself appears well-constructed. I've been using for about a month getting good stereo sound and no issues.

    Purchased this for an amp we have at home after losing the first adapter. Didn’t think I’d be able to find one after, not knowing what is was called and trying to explain to a Best Buy employee what the purpose of it was. They helped me find it immediately in store, and works better than the old one I’d thought would be irreplaceable!

    I needed to adapt my headphones to use with my keyboard. It has a 1/4" headphone jack, and my headphones have a 3.5mm connector. Since Radio Shack is pretty much "history" by now, it's good to know that Best Buy sells many of the audio connectors I would need to connect otherwise incompatible devices together. Thanks, Insignia!
