Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish Adapter only 3 pole not 4! ground and pin 1 are shorted together. It looks like 4 pole but is not I eaven cut it open to confirm and there only 3 connecting wires.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Didn't Work For What I wanted It For I bought this to try and connect headphones and a microphone to my SatNav. It worked for the headphones but did not work for the microphone. I suspect that the product is only for audio, rather than being a fault with the product. I have no criticism of the product but wanted to caution others that it didn't handle a microphone feed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't Work For What I wanted It For I bought this to connect an external microphone to my SatNav. However, it did not work for me so I suspect that this item is only for carrying audio and not for microphone inputs. However, at this cheap price it was worth a gamble.

Can this be used with an HP pavillion laptop combo audio/mic. I have used a 3.5 4pin which does not work and does not appear to go full way into the tablet socket.

Asked by: Ringer
As long as HP have adhered to the standard wiring configuration for the socket then this should be fine. The connection problem usually occurs if the headphone/mic socket is slightly recessed, if this is the case then you may need a connector with a very slim shroud so it does not foul against the body of the tablet/laptop.

I have a Panasonic home phone which has a 2.5mm socket, and I would like to use a regular headset (earpiece and in-line mic) which has a regular 3.5mm plug with the home phone. Is there any reason it would not work? 

Asked by: ABBS
This may work but we are not able to say for sure.
