|Amplified Cell/Satellite Phone Adapter for General Aviation (twin plugs): Allows use of cell phone with GA twin plug headset (Battery powered). Can be used to record outbound transmissions to phone. Does not send inbound ATC calls to the phone.|
I bought this for its simplicity and compact size. After selling my LightSpeed Zulus I needed a way to use my cell phone in the cockpit. This works great for that as well as music while flying. Sound quality while playing music is not the same quality as the Zulus had but that is not because of this unit, Ive gone back to using my David Clarke while I wait for my Audio Technologies Halo set to arrive. I could not be more pleased with this set up especially at a cost under $100.
Worked right out of the box. I like to call my wife as soon as I am back on the ground, so this will make it easy. Can also make and receive calls when warming up the engine. iPhone sounds very clear through Telex headset. Have only used it one time so I do not know how long the battery will last, but its just one 9-volt. Only issue so far is that the battery compartment is almost too small to fit it takes some fidgeting to get the battery inside or out.
poor sound quality
