    The only reasonable solution

    Posted
    GoodbyeCable

    I recently purchased a 2012 Fiat 500c with with No Bluetooth. I wanted to stream music from my iPhone and use the phone hands free. Bluetooth receivers allowed for streamed music but not phone calls. Units like the Motorola Roadster are great for making calls but offer no solution for quality music. The Calljax offers a brilliantly simple solution. It is basically an audio cable with a built in microphone. Think of it as turning your car stereo into a giant set of headphones. Hands free phone, stream music from any source, full Siri integration, voice enabled navigation. I know of no other device that can do all this, especially for 20 bucks. The only issue I had was a volume imbalance between music, Siri, and the phone. A little adjustment and I was good to go. I can't speak for Android devices, but on an iPhone the Calljax is an incredible product.

    Better than expected

    I bought this for 20 bucks expecting that it would be a good aux cable but not much else, but was very surprised when the handsfree calls sounded good. What I didn't realize when I bought this but ended up being my favorite feature is the button to control my music. Before I had to enter a code on my phone to unlock it before I could hit a button on the screen to skip a song, but now all I have to do is tap the button twice and it does it for me. One of the things they do not tell you about this product is that it works on Pandora as well, I tried it out one day just to see and it worked so been using it since. My only issue is that they don't have one that works with my wife's car since she doesn't have aux input., one of those slightly older cars that still has a tape player. Whish I could buy another for her.

    Perfect for listening to music on my cell phone

    I have an iPhone 5 and was looking for a way to listen to my music on my phone to play over my car speakers while driving. This was the perfect solution and so simple. All you need is a standard 3.5 auxiliary input in your car stereo to plug it in. What I really like about it is if you are listening to driving directions on your phone at the same time, the directions will voice over the music and then the music will continue, so you don't have to worry about not hearing the directions while your music is playing. It's also great that it has a microphone so you can use it for hands-free calling with a push button to answer and end calls, or pause or change your music selection with.

    Gets the job done

    It's an aux cord, it does what it's meant to. No noticeable interference, and build quality doesn't feel to cheap. Only real con is the built-in button controls don't work on the Note 8, at least for me. This isn't a big deal to me and I didnt buy it for the button controls, so I'm not too worried about it. For others that may not be the case though. Overall, good aux, but ended up replacing with a Monster AUX cable for more cable length and it's less in the way when my phone is in the dash mount.

    I got it as a gift for my boyfriend because it's impossible to hear him on speakerphone in his truck. What I didn't know was that I would benefit the most from it. Anytime he calls its crystal clear and anytime I drive his truck I have the ability call anyone and not have to worry about getting a ticket and I can listen to my music. I love it and will buy one for every friend that doesn't have bluetooth.

    Has improved my life exponentially

    I can now both charge my phone in the car and hear music, directions and phone calls over my speakers while driving, making my phone hands free. Microphone could be a little better but is definitely sufficient. Without this cord, I couldn’t hear anything while charging and I drive often for work in unfamiliar territory, dependent on listening to the directions. A positive life-changer for me. Also works with my portable speaker so can play music from my phone anywhere.

    Best Aux cable that I've bought so far

    I'm one of those that still doesn't have a Bluetooth car radio and because of this I have purchased many Aux cables and this one is my favorite. Aux cables are still one of the easiest, most convenient and reliable methods of connecting to any radio while reducing cell phone battery use (turn off Bluetooth). My kids always love plugging into the aux to play their music and it doesn’t require any setup(s). I have had this cable for a couple of months and still working great. I like the music advance/back and hands free mic adding more value and usefulness to my phone’s “Cortana”.

    Audio jack that connects phone to radio

    I was looking for a simple male-to-male audio jack to allow me to play music from my iPhone or iPod to my car radio. Instead, I stumbled onto this gem. It effectively routes music through my radio, but also is the first truly effective hands-free phone through the radio option I have ever had. People on the other end of the line can actually hear me, and I can hear them very clearly. I love this device. It was reasonably priced, and easy to use.

    Not a great device

    It was easy to set it up, actually no any set up was needed - just plug and play. The connector is long enough and works with my thick phone case. But that's all the good that I can say about this device. The sound quality was very poor, people on the other end of the line couldn't hear me clearly due to noise and disturbances. It's a good audiojack to connect a phone to the car radio but as a mic it's of very poor quality, and as an audiojack it is too pricy.

    Didn't completely work with my phone

    I bought this based in part on the packaging claim that the built-in button would control being able to answer the phone, but that feature does not work with my Note4. Also, I get a loud click thru my vehicle speakers between each track when using the cable to link my phone's music player with my car's stereo (I don't get that with other cables). Works well enough to connect the phone to the car stereo for phone operation otherwise...

    Great Alternative to Bluetooth

    I recently purchased a new car that did not offer hands-free Bluetooth, so while looking for a decent Bluetooth system to install in my car, I noticed this neat little device. It was only $20, so I decided to try it out, and I am happy I did. It simply plugs into your aux port on your phone and in the car and offers great audio. The only downside is whoever is on th other end of the line will get an echo of themselves.

    Best way to play music through your AUX Jack

    This is a great accessory when you do not have blue tooth functionality in your car stereo. Just lug it into the AUX jack and now you can change tunes quickly without looking and if you get a phone call tap it once and the music pauses and the call comes through loud and clear. The only issue I have is that I have to turn up the volume on the radio when I get a call. That's easy. I love this accessory.

    Got this on sale for $10.99. Had a blue ant S4 which I paid way more for and was awful. It always reset and made me re-pair the phone. Was worried with the CallJax that I had to turn volume way up while using, but realized I needed to just turn up headphone volume on iPhone. I am extremely pleased with this so far. Plus I bought a 3.5 aux input so I can keep my XM radio plugged in. I simply mute the XM radio when using the CallJax.

    I gave this to both my daughters so they can drive hands free. Very easy set up and use. My only suggestions would be to offer a charging cord that has USB instead of only standard 12 volt plug; Also add software to let users listen to radio and answer phone instead of having to turn on Aux button on radio then click On button on device When driving , the fewer steps to answer a call, the better.

    The instructions indicate to plug both ends in and you are ready to go. Unfortunately, that did not happen for me. Once plugged in, nothing happened. I then tried flipping the ends and retried. I finally got some kind of control on my galaxy s3. However, the only control I got was Google voice popping up. I could not use this device like a Bluetooth. It may take more fiddling... But it should be easier.

    Affordable hands-free device

    This cable works great for the price. I have tried several hands-free devices which had to be charged. This cable is plugged into my phone and I'm good to go. I am very pleased, especially with the affordability of this product. The only downside is that the clarity is not the best but it does what you need it to do so you can drive without having to hold your phone to talk.

    Love this cord to make phone calls while driving and have the callers voice come from my car speakers and listening to music from my phone in my car stereo. The sound is really great. However the cord is far too delicate. If either ends are pulled too many times or in the wrong way it easily creates distortion in the sound or shorts out. I have had to replace this twice already. Frustrating.

    This product is very simple to use. The price is economical allowing pretty much anybody the ability to have handsfree calling and music streaming from they're phone. A slight adjustment in volume levels on phone and radio allow a fine tuned sound for both user and listener. With vehicles that have the headphone jack input this product is greatly recommended simply for the safety that is gained.

    It work as you expected. Put it in an AUX port and that's it. If you ever use a headphone with remote control for a phone before, you already know how to use it. The only down side is that it break easily. I accidentally drop it with my phone inside my car with only a foot height and the button stuck. So I bought a new one, and somehow drop it again, and I have to buy a new one again...

    After a year

    This was great when i first got it. No sound quality issue. Unfortunately, after a year the wire got all bent out of shape from bending too often when connected up right to the phone. After a year, the weight of itself caused it to get staticy when in a bad position. If i get it again, i will use heat shrink tube to strengthen the beginning of the strait wrire.
