Has anyone checked out the headphones adapter from Griffin? It looks like it would be better than the Belkin one because it is flexible. They are both the same price $9.99. I would rather not modify my headphones.

I modified my apple headphones but I agree I do not want to mess with my Shure. The cost to much to screw up. I need to try one of these. They both look okay for me

The reviews I have been reading, on the commercial sights, complain a lot about the Belkin. The problem is that it sticks out of your phone like an oversized antenna. From what I have read the adapter makes it hard to walk around with in your pocket because it puts a lot of stress on the 1/8in jack. I dont want to break my phone. I haven't seen many reviews on the Griffin, thats why I am curious if anyone has one or has heard anything about its reliability.

I have the Belkin and I dont like it much. Like the above post said its bulky and sticks way out from the phone. Also, I bought it yesterday and it seems like I lost a lot of sound using this adapter. I used it today and it sounded okay... not sure whats really going on, I made sure that everything was plugged in well yesterday, but
it sounded flat.
Id say go for the Griffin, but check online first for some reviews. Also, I think iskin (the case company that makes the revo) has one for like 4 dollars. It says that the output is perfect, has both mono and stereo, and I think it allows for the mic to be used or something. Its like 5 bucks on their website, I think Im going to try that one out as well.

I bought THIS one and received it today. Works great, I don't notice any loss in sound or quality. I'm in no way associated with the seller but I'm happy with mine. There are a few sellers with them available.

I haven't purchased this myself yet (waiting on the retractable version coming in mid October), but I have read about other iphone users who really like the Seido adapter:
It has a built-in mic and answer button. You can also pause/play music with it. And best of all, you can use it as a car adapter, essentially making your iphone handsfree!
