Summary: I purchased this to use with my Dell Precision 490 workstation and my Nokia BH-503 headset so I could listen to Pandora and Windows Media Player at work. I downloaded the latest XP drivers and the installation went smoothly.

Summary: I don't normally write reviews but I think it is worth it to help the many people who may be as frustrated as I was with this product. Skip below to "INSTRUCTIONS" for how to get this product to work. This device would be great if it actually worked out of the box.
Summary: I installed the adaptor and WIN XP installed some drivers and i could connect my phone to it. I then tried to connect a Plantronics 590 and it paired but could hear anything or speak thru the mic.
