Comments about Monster® RadioPlay™ 300 Wireless FM Transmitter:

Used this across many states and for the most part the reception was pretty good. It had weird feedback issues when I had my phone charging but other than that, the sound quality was alright.

    Comments about Monster® RadioPlay™ 300 Wireless FM Transmitter:

    I walked out of the store thinking that I got a good buy; but I was wrong, really wrong. After I plugged into my outlet, found a station and plugged it into my iPhone 4s, all I heard was a lot of static and barely any music. I kept changing the stations until I found a new one that I thought would work. But I was wrong again! This was one of the worst buy I've ever boughten, it was not worth the gas that I wasted to get to radioshack and it definitely not worth the time I spent trying to get it to work. This product is horrible. I returned this product the next day. But if you do buy it make sure it works before you leave the parking lot.

      Best Uses

        Comments about Monster® RadioPlay™ 300 Wireless FM Transmitter:

        I had another brand (since re-gifted!) that was so weak that as I drove across country, it would be overwhelmed by local FM stations every 15-20 minutes or so. And that unit would "forget" its frequency whenever it was unplugged (!) With this unit, I drove across NC and had to change stations only once. When I turned it off, it had actually been on the same frequency as a fairly close local station, with no problem.
        The only downside is that when I first left the store with it, my GPS (LG phone with VZ navigator, also running from the cigarette lighter) gave me several error messages in quick succession and sent me on several U-turns. When I turned off the FM transmitter, the GPS became reliable again. Later, on the open highway, the GPS seemed fine again. Perhaps this issue can be rectified by placing the units farther apart. Will post updates if that gets figured out!

          Comments about Monster® RadioPlay™ 300 Wireless FM Transmitter:

          This product is very clear, especially compared to a similar product from another retailer. Very pleased with its performance thus far. I wish I was able to use it outside of the car, but it is limited by needing a car charger-plug in.

          I bought mine in 2005 and used it 5 days a week for up to 5 hours a day. Never any problem. Could not tell difference between this unit and strong FM Station.

          Mine finally gave it up today after 7 years of rough handling. The bonus is it will be 30 dollars less than I paid in 2005.

            Comments about Monster® RadioPlay™ 300 Wireless FM Transmitter:

            Bought this product today from my local Radio Shack and I must say Im very happy with this purchase. I wanted to use my Android phone (HTC Amaze) to listen to radio stations with the TuneIn Radio App. Easy to set up, and within minutes I was listening to radio stations in Greece through my FM stereo in my car!!!

            Reception was great. I already have a station that I listen to my Ipod so I just used that station.

            product was so good, I think I will even start to use this product to listen to my Ipod because the reception is better than the attachment I currently use for my Ipod.

            PLEASE DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY... I didn't listen to the previous reviews and I should have. Don't buy! This is a piece of garbage. I didn't even make it out of the parking lot. I walked right back in and returned it.

                I've only had it a day, but had to say, the first channel i chose was crystal clear no static what so ever. Also I rely on reviews and would recommend this to anyone who loves music and has to bring it everywhere they go!

                  Bought this for my Windows 7 phone to play through Xterra's radio. Sounds as good or better than than CD player. And now I can listen to Netflix in the car on the road.
