Excerpt: I use it to connect both speakers and headphones to my mac mini while using garageband - only wish there was a bit more cable length and would be even better if there was a switch I could select to use one or other, as it is now both headphones and speakers are 'on' all the time.
Summary: I was looking for a splitter to connect to my receiver for late night movie viewing with my wife. What convinced me to get this product was that it claimed to be stereo, and not mono. After I received this product, I was very pleased. It is thick, yet flexible. The headphone sockets offer a very secure connection. When you connect headphones to it, the plug literally snaps into place. Once I heard the sound, I did verify that it is stereo.
