Features

Overview: The Monster iCarPlay Cassette Adapter allows you to play your iPod, iPhone or other portable audio device through your vehicle's cassette receiver.

Cassette Head: The iCarPlay Cassette Adapter features a spring-loaded cassette head which maintains solid contact with your cassette tape player's head for clear sound.

Cable: The 36" cord features advanced cable construction to deliver more natural audio sound. The cable is attached to the right side corner of the cassette adapter. The edge of the cassette can be opened to allow you to move the cord from the right side corner to the left side corner, left bottom corner, or right bottom corner. This allows the adapter to fit both front-loading and side-loading cassette players, and adapt the cord to the direction the tape is inserted into the player.

Connector: The cord is terminated by a 24K gold minijack (3.5mm) connector for optimum signal transfer and corrosion resistance.

Durable construction, goldplated heads has fantastic audio qualities through my alpine speakers. I have always had good luck with monster equipment and this has not let me down had this for about a week.
Pros:
Great quality sound very good bass response
Cons:
Would have liked the cord to be a little thicker but I don't guess that something to really complain about

A better cassette adapter

Written By Warren, Norwalk, CT on Sunday, July 28, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a great item for cars that may not be "up to date". Plug in your MP3 player, or iPhone, iPod and play through your cars cassette player. You can even use your SiriusXM app on your "smart phone" and play in your car without having one of those expensive satellite receivers. And because it's a "Monster" you know you can count on it for years to come.
Pros:
Dependable, Solid, Convenient for travel
Cons:
None

Great Adapter, Cost-Effective

Written By El Hage, New York, NY on Tuesday, March 06, 2012
 
This is an inexpensive iPod adapter which works well w/ my Acura factory stereo (Bose); plugs right into the cassette deck and sounds great. At under $20, I couldn't be happier. Would highly recommend to persons w/ high-end factory stereos. I have not heard it on a lower-end stereo and so cannot comment.
