    Comments about RadioShack Bluetooth Cassette Adapter:

    I've heard this in three car stereos now - each time I know that the sound quality is superior to the traditional FM transmitter. Oddly enough those cars with cassette players will have better sound and those using other types of adapters.

    • Good Sound Quality
    • Very Good Sound Quality

    Cons

    • Gears A Little Clickity
    • Needs Auto-on

    • Daily Use
    • Streaming Beats In Car

    Comments about RadioShack Bluetooth Cassette Adapter:

    Sound quality was above my expectations. I was clearly able to ascertain the difference pandora streaming 100mb,/s and beats music at 300mb/s?
    All sound is better than FM, and better than some single cd,s, how ever hdcd ,which I just recently discovered does hold more subtleties and dynamics.
    Problems, a little hiss, but keeping volume of your iphone up seem to keep this issue in checks sometimes you hear the little fake gears in the cassette clicking around. I I know there is someone on another forum I read some where thaw as able to make it stop, but it just can't recall exactly how he did it.
    Also unit states to have side 1 up, but as another Mercedes owner noted here, it worked fabulous by just Turning the cassette upside down, thus changing the head alignment .
    Bottom line is it sounds great go buy one !
    Things to make it perfect.
    Make so it turns it self on when a cassete placed in player
    Have it charge itself with a small generator in wheel
    Even thoiugh sound quality is good, for a few more pennies it could be amazing

    What can be better than going back to the future with this retro futuristic high fidelity audio listening device! I purchased two, one for my Walkman so I could listen to music from my phone and the other for my Vintage 2005 Audi A4 "Bose edition" Radio that still has a tape deck.

    Great Product!

    Comments about RadioShack Bluetooth Cassette Adapter:

    I recently purchased a vehicle that only came with a CD player, so I had to resort to using a FM transmitter for the first time. Well, I quickly threw it out the window the second time I used it (not really, but wanted to!) So I decided to *downgrade* my deck to an older vehicle's deck with cassette just because I saw this online. This works AMAZING good and it is a delight to use. The sound quality is wonderful. No more road rage!

      After charging the battery and paring it with a IPod and a IPhone, then inserting into tape deck(s), unit would be rejected, and kicked out of player(s).

        Comments about RadioShack Bluetooth Cassette Adapter:

        I was hoping someone would invent this! No joke. I performed online searches for for this sort of device months ago with no success. It seemed like a no brainer to me - perfect for Bluetooth. SO I kept looking. And finally RS did. It replaces the terrible wired version that in my case did not work because the wire interfered with closing the cassette door, which meant the stereo thought there was a jam or something and would beep every 10 seconds. But that's not the case here. It's essentially invisible. I think RS should promote the heck out of this thing. I have to say it is a tad pricey. I think $25 is more on target. Though it saves you a bundle, maybe hundreds, because it instantly makes your old car stereo up-to-date. In my case, a 2003 Mercedes CLK 320 with standard Blaupunkt cassette radio. The one caveat (for me anyway) is that the side that says "This side up" needed to face DOWN to get good audio quality. If it is UP the audio was muted about 70% - not good. In fact I was about to return it (very disappointedly) but then I decided to flip it over so that the "This sound up" side faced DOWN - and the sound was loud and strong! Maybe a head alignment issue? The gotcha in this configuration is that I now have to completely remove the device to turn it ON (it turns off automatically with non-use) ) because the on/off/sync button is now on the far side, as opposed to easily accessing the button while it is partially ejected in the player. But that's not a huge deal and this "side" issue only may only be relevant to my car or particular model of stereo - or the head alignment. On the up-side, it is rechargeable via old style mini usb, which is provided. If it was not rechargeable (and auto-off), it would be a deal-killing hassle if I had to constantly eject it and turn it off and/or replace batteries. So in closing, this is an excellent product with huge upside, and just a little downside.

        Comments about RadioShack Bluetooth Cassette Adapter:

        I agree with most of the other reviews, but: we paired it with my iPhone 4s in the store and it worked perfectly when I got to my car.
        Later that day, I used my cellphone bluetooth with a Sony device, and the next day I couldn't get the cassette adapter to connect with my cellphone...went back to the store, the clerk couldn't get it to connect, then, clicked "forget this device" and re-paired... have not had this same issue since.

        But the battery life is only about 3-4 hours, nowhere the time advertised... and that's an issue my my long trip.

          Comments about RadioShack Bluetooth Cassette Adapter:

          I bought this product after returning the Gigaware Cassette Adapter for my 2004 Saab 9-5 Aero. The difference in quality was tremendous, with no clicks and a minimal amount of white noise only at high volumes, and that was only detected when the music was paused. I unpackaged and hooked up my iPhone 5 to it within 5 minutes on the road and it has worked great ever since. The only downside to this product is the battery life is only 6-8 hours of play time and it cannot be charged while playing. Besides that, fantastic product!!

          This is probably the best bluetooth product I've seen out in the market. It has great sound quality. No static at all. I use the cassette player in my 1997 Toyota Camry and sounds great. Its easy to use and its less trouble without a cord. The only bad thing is that the battery life isn't that great. I have to charge it alot. But its worth it.

          I purchased this after I couldn't get the Gigaware cassette adapter to work properly in my vehicles brand new replacement radio, cassette, and CD player. I charged this adapter up, and turned it on, set up was easy my I phone detected it and I paired it thru Bluetooth and it works perfectly in my vehicle. No constant clicking from player, only ejects when I eject it, and it meets my needs perfectly. I wish I had purchased this adapter first and saved myself $22.99.
