Grado

If your headphone cable ends in a full-sized headphone plug, use this adapter to connect it to a mini headphone jack — the kind that's more widely available on MP3 players, iPods®, laptops, and other portable devices. This 8" cable is made using the same high-quality wire used in Grado's headphone cable, so you won't have to worry about any signal degradation across the adapter.

Excellent Adapter

Written By Kellydc3, Dallas, TX on Friday, April 11, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a well made product that sounds terrific and is very durable but still flexible.
Pros:
Great sound, firm connections, good length for strain-relief, very durable, quality construction.
Cons:
The ridge of the insulated collar for the mini connector will not fit in an Otterbox for iPhone. Easily rectified by shaving off the collar's ridge with a mat knife. Fits perfect now.

Grado

Written By Andrew, Chicago on Wednesday, February 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It's a good, quality product made by Grado. I believe it is the same one they ship out with their headphones. I also have the Senn HD 650's with Cardas upgrade - and it is a good solution for stepping down to the mini plug size for on the go listening via a portable headphone amp.
Pros:
Grado quality.
Cons:
None I can tell.

Great solution!

Written By RandyT, Vacaville, CA on Saturday, February 01, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great product! I wanted to listen to music stored on my laptop with my Sennheiser HD 650's. I have a Dragonfly DA/headphone amp and this allows me to use them as I try out some lossless and high resolution files. Initially I didn't want something with a cord this long but it is perfect. The cord is a little more heavy duty than it appears in the picture, fits the 1/4 inch headphone plug very snuggly and there is no hiss or channel drop out as I had experienced in a cheaper, all metal product. I have the Cardas upgrade headphone cable for my Sennheisers and I can detect no loss of quality vs listening to the same music through my stereo system with a dedicated headphone amp.
Pros:
Solid construction, great connection, no loss of sound quality
Cons:
None

Fine adapter; puzzling service

Written By jws2013s, Milwaukee, Wis. on Friday, December 20, 2013
 
Adapter appears to be especially well-made -- given the adventure it went through in getting here. Curiously, Crutchfield shipped the item in very shoddy packaging. Between that and UPS' delivery bungling, the item arrived late and damaged. Damage is minimal, though -- the male plug is slightly bent out of shape -- and after considerable testing, the sound quality seems fine. After complaining about the packaging, Crutchfield said (late on a Friday) that it would ship a replacement model Monday, via overnight mail. Over the weekend, I emailed Crutchfield, saying that a refund of my $15 purchase price would suffice. Inexplicably, Crutchfield stuck to its Monday plan, costing Crutchfield $40. Consequently, I now have a second, unneeded adapter -- and deep suspicion about Crutchfield's pricing, knowing that we're apparently paying for such mismanagement.
Pros:
Adapter can withstand poor packaging and UPS bungling
Cons:
Puzzling service raises questions about what you're really paying for

Top quality

Written By Jim, Wayne, NJ on Friday, August 02, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Priced much higher than most would pay for an adapter, but if you are looking for top quality, then this is worth it. They are made by Grado and you can tell by the build quality. I use them daily with my SSR225i's since I mostly listen to my mp3 player and computer, both which have a smaller jack. I like the fact that they take the plugging and unplugging abuse I give them insted of my headphone plug, and they look like they will stand up to anything for a very long time.
Pros:
Quality construction
Cons:
None.
