Acceptable but not perfect

Brandon S, Apple Store
2 October 2014
  • Summary: I've had this thing for almost 7 months now, and it works fine. However I have found some quirks: 1. Prone to overheating. I leave it in my car all day when I work and by the end of the day it's super toasty.

"Do Not Leave In A Hot (Or Cool) Car"

Kathy J, Apple Store

  • Summary: This FM Transmitter works pretty well. I used it a bit less than a year and it worked about the same as any of the 4 FM transmitters I've owned. It was no better and no worse than the other brands I've used - which ranged from very cheap to rather expensive.

Works ok - but doesn't last long

  • Summary: Been thru 2 of these in the last 2 years. sounds ok, but same issue - it starts falling apart after a few months. Kind of expensive to replace every 6-12 months at $70 a piece. I'm going to look for a better one next time.

Pretty Decent

Elizabeth H, Apple Store

  • Summary: I used this for 2 years before it stopped working and I will be buying another. I had used a different brand before this one that broke after 6 months. It's very easy to use and the sound quality is pretty good.

  • Summary: I'm lucky if I can get 4 minutes of staticky music out of this before it turns off for no reason.

So so

David W, Apple Store

  • Summary: It worked okay, I found I had to change the station depending on what part of town I was in to avoid static. Biggest disappointment was that it only lasted a year and 3 months before breaking.

:D

Chris H, Apple Store

  • Summary: I have purchased this item two times and the sound quality was great every time I used it. The only problem is the stability because the cords have broken both times, thats why I had to buy two of them. Other than that this is a good product.

Works beautifully in Alaska

Felix R, Apple Store
14 October 2013
  • Summary: I recently moved to Anchorage Alaska and this thing works great. I originally lived in New Jersey, and it did not work as well. You should really only buy this if you live in a more remote area with fewer stations.

They only work for about 6 months!

Yvonne E, Apple Store

  • Summary: I'm on my second one! It very easily comes out of the iPhone socket. It doesn't lock in. For the few first months it stays in place but after a little bit of use (I don't even drive everyday!) it starts slipping off! I got my first for 80 dlls at the AT&T store.
