    Simple fix to an irritating problem
    At work I listen to music with headphones. However, I only wear one headphone so I can hear what's going on around me.

    The problem with that is, if you are listening to a song where different things are played in each channel it doesn't sound right. (Seriously, listen to Bohemian Rhapsody with one headphone and see if it doesn't ruin your day)

    Also, "balance" adjustments don't help because they just make one channel louder or softer than the other, they don't actually "move" the sound to the other headphone. I needed something to convert the stereo signal into mono.

    Tada! This little gadget does just that. Works great, good quality, no complaints!

    PROS: Solid construction. Good connection.

    CONS: None.

    No Quality Control / Bad Design
    I had read the reviews and knew I was likely to have a problem so I bought two 7129's and two 7160's thinking I would get at least one part that worked without intermittent connection. No such luck. All four parts had the same problem as detailed in other people's reviews. These are sealed units so you cannot try to bend or adjust anything. It seems a flawed design to begin with. The ring connection has no spring contact so you are just hoping that it will lay across the metal hole well enough for the jack part to make contact. Well mostly it does NOT. They have no quality control and should not be sold until the design and manufacture is fixed so that they actually perform their function without requiring you to hold them in your hands to make the connection.

    PROS: None.

    CONS: Intermittent Connections require you to hold device in your hands during entire service of operation.

    just garbage
    This is pure garbage, and that is where it is now, in the trash.

    So far all the 3.5 female connectors that I have ordered from Monoprice on most cables have been garbage. I appreciate the low price the Monoprice offers, but these are so bad that it is worthless, at this point free is too expensive. Monoprice really needs to fix the quality of these. At this point I will not buy anymore 3.5 cables from Monoprice :(

    PROS: none

    CONS: The female portions is way too loose, super poor connection.

    Perfect and a low price!
    This is exactly what I needed to convert my mono microphone into stereo.
    Before I got this when I would plug my microphone into a stereo slot it wouldn't be picked up at all, I had to leave it halfway unplugged to get it to work.
    This fixed that and it was much cheaper than anything I could find anywhere else even with shipping!

    PROS: -Low price
    -Works as advertised.
    -Splits the mono between both stereo channels evenly.

    Nothing like what is mentioned in the bad reviews.
    Despite all the bad reviews written for this product, I was in desperate need for a stereo to mono solution. Seeing that Monoprice seemed to be the only legitimate shop that knows what they are selling, I decided to take the risk and purchase 10 of this babies (to levy out the shipping costs). Boy did I make the right decision!

    I use this product in several situations (with my PC and my PS4), passed some on to my wife and friends, and not a single one complained about loose connections or breaking audio. What more can I say? It works just as intended.

    PROS: Works exactly the way I want it to, plays both left and right audio on my mono gaming headset.

    Solid build quality, not flimsy etc.

    CONS: Product came in a box way too big for the quantity I ordered. Could have saved some shipping costs on that.

    It works, what more can you ask for?
    Arrived quickly, and they work!

    PROS: Converts my mono microphone into stereo-like sound when used with my stereo-supported camera.

    CONS: None

    Shocking service!
    Bought an HD video camera that has an external microphone jack (Kodak Zi8, not many out there). Bought a microphone. Sweet! Turns out the jack is stereo, microphone is mono. All audio was in the left ear. Not good.

    Went shopping for an adapter jack and almost spent way more somewhere else. Thankfully, the cable part of my brain spoke up saying "MonoPrice.com"

    Now the mono microphone input is equally balanced in the camera's two stereo channels. Clean, sturdy solution and a great price.

    PROS: Description was precise so I knew I was getting the right thing. Price was 20% of other places. Item arrived 3 days before I expected. It words great. What more could I say?

    CONS: It wasn't free. Well, that's the only way it could have been better.

    Converts mono mic to stereo well
    I bought this to convert a mono mic to stereo, for a device requiring a stereo mic. This adapter works great for that purpose. The connection is slightly loose on the female side of the adapter, but otherwise it appears to be of decent quality. I also ordered PID #7129 (the non-metal variant of this same adapter) at the same time to compare them, and this one is definitely better.

    Great! Allows me to finally listen to my music and movies without permanently converting the song to mono via my computer and greatly diminishing the sound quality. Now I can listen to songs on my computer in stereo and this adapter plays it all back through one ear phone.

    Poor build quality but at this price it's easily fixable since I could order more of these and keep them as backups should these break

    PROS: For the purpose of having a stereo to mono plug it really helps me out. I'm deaf in my right ear so I can't hear both channels of a song or movie. This device allows me to hear both channels of an audio source through one headphone. Before, I had to convert all my music into mono so that I could hear the song in one headphone. This greatly diminishes the quality of the song. With this adapter I can have a stereo source on my computer plug in my headphones (with adapter attached of course) and be able to hear the song in good quality, unplug the headphones and have it play in stereo on my desk speakers.

    CONS: The bad part about this and what kept me from giving it a 10 is the build quality. I ordered 2, one for my computer headphones and another for my earphones which I take out when I'm away from my house. Both were bent and crooked at the plug in portion (but still useable), the other had a piece of plastic from one of the rings peeling off. Which also peels whenever I unplug it from the device. On one of them the casing can also slip off (same one that's peeling).

    I wish with this order, monoprice could have shipped the item in a box or something that wouldn't allow the pieces to take damage during shipment.

    I was hoping with the metal gold plated version of this plug that I would be getting a quality built to last product. But for the price (36 cents when I bought it I believe) it's understandable and I can easily order loads more of these to keep as backups without breaking the bank
