    I’m sorry, but this is not a review – it’s a rehash of the manufacturers blurb. People want information on how these units operate in the real world with the Specific OS. Many of these units seem great till you plug them into (for example) a device with an IOS (which they are blatantly market at) and then will not perform the required task as well as the host devices internal audio REGARDLESS OF THE SOUND QUALITY!

    If you are going to do a “review” then by all means, do so – don’t just read the box and re-iterate to avoid having to place citations for copyright.

    P.s. your Facebook connect link is, shall we say “buggy” at best.
