Overall, I must say that this is a quality adapter that would work in 98% of situations. Don't be afraid to make this purchase. I mix for a mid sized House of Worship and I trust that these adapters won't short out or lose contact in the middle of a set. Purchase with confidence.
These are good adapters overall. My only issue is the shape of the plastic body. I don't care for the hexagonal shape. I prefer them with a round, knurled body in case I need to place one in a very tight space, such as my Soundcraft GB4's headphone jack (stupidest thing ever)
The quality seems to be pretty good. I would spend a little more for for even a little better quality if I could find some, but these haven't let me down yet. They seem to have a pretty good click when you plug in the 3.5mm end, but I still wish it felt a little better yet.
I think these are a pretty good value. I'd like to see them a little cheaper, but hey, we're Americans, we always want cheaper.

1/8" connection too large

I bought 2, based on the great ratings I saw. I know these things are difficult to build high-quality, and I was skeptical that a molded plastic adapter could be robust enough.Read complete review

I bought 2, based on the great ratings I saw. I know these things are difficult to build high-quality, and I was skeptical that a molded plastic adapter could be robust enough.

The 1/8" end is incredibly loose: no matter which pair of headphones I plugged into it (Shure SCM-3 & AKG M80(?) among others), I usually only get one side of the stereo signal unless I put pressure on the connection and held it just right. The headphone plug would also easily slide out.

The 1/4" end seemed fine.

At first I thought one was just defective, but both of the two I got had this problem. I have a feeling that these were two in a bad batch, but I don't think I'll order the same make/model again.1/8" connection is so loose, it's useless.

alright

Comments about Hosa Stereo Mini Female-Stereo 1/4" Male Adapter:

This cable is okay but the 1/4" plug is a little over 1/4" so it is hard to fit into the female jack. other than that it is useful. not poor quality. Just too big.

A Real Game changer!

Comments about Hosa Stereo Mini Female-Stereo 1/4" Male Adapter:

I was a bit skeptical reading the other reviews. "That's a little far fetched for a simple adapter."Boy was I wrong! This adapter single handedly CHANGED MY CAREER. I was having trouble before, I would listen to the mixes through my headphones which came standard with only a 1/8" connection, and required the use of an adapter. Before I didn't spend the extra cash for quality. The mixes sounded thin, tinny and all around dull. NOT ANYMORE! I haven't done a show where I haven't had the musicians blown away by how detailed and intricately I was able to mix their monitors. I just step aside and show them this lil guy. I've already had 7 people tell me they'll order one (one guy whipped out his phone right there on the spot!).This is probably the best money I've ever spent.

Best Money Ever Spent

Comments about Hosa Stereo Mini Female-Stereo 1/4" Male Adapter:

I walked into the local Sound Exchange just to buy strings and well I came across this genius invention and asked them what it for. After the explanation,I had to have one. And now i find myself practicing at most weirdest times like midnight until about 4 to 5 am, when everyone else is a sleep. The best part would have to be that I can crank my amp to max and have one else hear it.

          This works as intended. The flush connection surface makes it compatible with most any 1/8 inch audio cables.

                  Exactly what I needed to connect headphones to my keyboard. Shipped (for free!) the same day, so I had it within days. Very pleased with purchase.
