With this Bluetooth cassette adapter your car’s cassette player instantly becomes a wireless Bluetooth receiver. Just like that, you can stream music from any Bluetooth music player or phone. No complicated installation. No cables. No tangled or snagged tape. Just pop it in and it automatically turns on. This adapter contains a long-lasting rechargeable battery for even the longest road trips. Plus, you now have a hands-free solution for phone calls, thanks to the built in microphone.

Both of your hands stay safe on the wheel while your audio source stays in your pocket. This is the last cassette you’ll ever need and the first and only step to bring your favourite music, podcasts, and audio books into your car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I've been using a wired cassette adapter for years in my Audi and really wanted to get a bluetooth upgrade to connect my iPhone. I thought I'd try this out as for £29 it's way cheaper than getting a parrot system or replacing the head unit. Anyway, plugged into my car cassette and worked first time, sound quality is excellent and the microphone worked fine for handsfree calls. Haven't had long enough to comment on battery life but the claimed 4 -6 hours should be plenty (unless I forget to charge on that long journey home, but I have the wired one as spare). Highly recommended

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought as I couldn't afford a new headunit As title says, I was a little dubious as I had seen negative reviews on other websites. My fears were unfounded, the sound quality is good to excellent. I'd suggest setting the volume level to medium on your phone/player and then adjust to suit on your headunit After using the microphone for a phone call, it apparently muffled my speech but not so it was inaudible. As long as my wife could hear that I was homeward bound I wasn't fussed. I'm not expecting high quality anyway In conclusion, I'd recommend this if you have a need for it. Just don't visit the store if you're also keen on purchasing a drone, I very nearly spent nigh on 800 quid on one courtesy of a very knowledgeable sales assistant in the Milton Keynes store!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressed! Just tried this and the sound quality is much better than I had hoped for. Really great cheap way of converting a radio cassette player to a Bluetooth receiver and hands free phone kit. My one criticism (which lost this one star) is that the mic cable is so short. Adding this on a reel that you could extend with a suction cup/clip would make it easy to put the mic closer to the driver. Another suggestion would be to use the rotating spools as a dynamo to power/charge the unit making it fully autonomous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great if you have a classic car with a tape deck. Buy two if you can afford to. It's annoying when it runs out of juice, and it does this after 4 hours of use. If you have 2, one can be on charge whilst the other is in use. The sound quality (in my tape deck at least) is great. I wouldn't say perfect but it's really good. The hands free facility is blinding. You can answer calls by squeezing the retractable microphone that hangs out of the mouth of the player. It picks up your voice perfectly even with a lot of background noise. The voice of the person you are talking to is played back through your car sterio's speakers so no more straining to hear. If you already have hands free and don't want to use this, the mic has its own little compartment that it can be left in so that it doesn't get in the way.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but beware Works very well and easy to set up. Beware though, if you have a cassette that is behind a flip down front, the mic lead, which is actually nice and flat, is far too short to protrude to the front of the radio, another centimetre would have done the trick. Shame...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes Finally!!! I have owned a wired MP3 to cassette adapter for a while now and although it is great all the wires were a bit of a pain. Now because of this bluetooth adapter I can stream my music direct from my iPhone. Because it also has a built in mic I can also make hands free calling. If you have a cassette player this is a must!!! Even better then a FM transmitter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what is says on the box and does it very well! Love this product. I was thinking of buying a new head unit and adaptor kit for my 2003 Ford Galaxy and this has solved that problem with less hassle and greatly reduced cost. Great sound too

The last one of these that I bought, had dreadful interference but it was a cheaper version. I do not want this to happen again. Is there a possibility of this happening?

Asked by: Ronnie
It could have been something environmental that caused that interference. This is a great product and after testing I haven't noticed any interference at all.
