        I bought this Grado adaptor after reading a review and I have to say its a top quality adaptor and fits perfectly. Its made by Grado who make high end headphones so you can be sure its a quality product, it just feels right and I am very happy with the sound quality of my headphones using this.

          Simple and effective. The 6 inches or so of length make it flexible and doesn't stress the connector ends.

              Works great as an adapter for connecting large and high-end headphones to a laptop or portable device without straining the jack (as a rigid adapter would). A well-made cable.

                The cable has the right amount of flexibility. I plug it into an iPad Air (which is very light), and the cable hangs down and is sufficiently lightweight.

                  The quality is so evident with this cable. The material and construction is solid. The sound quality is superb. I purchased a similar cable to get by from Monoprice which was rubbish in comparison.

                  This cable also comes with a carry pouch and is made in USA!

                    Tbis is a great adapter, widely used by headphone users to avoid damage since it puts less strain on the equipment. Doesn't seem to restrict sound either. Reasonable price for a quality cable and for the benefit it provides.

                      This is great for headphones with 1/4" pin. I can now use my favorite set of headphones with any device whether it's 1/4" or 1/8" plug..
                      The short cable extension prevents any undue stress at the connect point.. NICE~~
                      No more of those poorly made adapters. This one has great stereo sound and should last many years... love it..!

                        This mini-adapter is solidly built and well-designed; the extra lead on the cable before the connector input helps keep the strain off the audio source jack.

                        If you're using your headphones with an iPod or portable DAC, this adapter is a must.

                            Nice cable. I wire recording studios for a living, so I've seen many 3.5mm adaptors. I use these with a few headphones and it has held up very well.

                            Comments about Grado Mini Adapter Cable (1/4" Female to 1/8" Male):

                            Use to connect my Audio-Technica headphones with a 1/4" plug to my JDS Labs cMoy BB v2.03 Headphone Amplifier, since it only has a 1/8" stereo mini jack. The adapter cable is strong, flexible and stands up under heavy usage. No popping, cracking or other evidence of loose connections or inferior materials used in production. Very happy, even though it was a bit more expensive then I expected to pay.

                                Used to adapt my (non-Grado) phones to fit a mini stereo socket, the adapter clicks firmly in place and does not short in and out when moved around or the plugs rotated in the fittings. The flexible cable avoids the strain of a giant assemblage of fixed plugs weighing on the phone socket.

                                  Comments about Grado Mini Adapter Cable (1/4" Female to 1/8" Male):

                                  I've used this adapter frequently with my SR325is for the past couple of years and it continues to work properly and shows few signs of wear. I'm glad that it is compatible with any other headphone that uses a 1/4" connection. It always fits securely and reduces strain on the equipment that you plug it into, whether it be MP3 players or home stereos.
                                  Other generic adapters of this type that I've tried have seemed much flimsier or eventually failed at some point. This one states quality just holding it in your hand.

                                    Great build quality to match my 325is but won't fit with case on my iphone. I do like the fact that it has a bit of cable to keep the bulk down when plugged in but needs to be smaller to fit into recessed openings.

                                        I needed this to use my Grado Sr225i with my portable headphone amp and Ipod. This cable looks sweet and puts way less stress on the headphone in of my amp. Great price here [...]. Thanks B&H!!!
