CD / MP3 Player Headset Adapter - Fixed Wing

This adapter allows you to interface a portable CD player directly with a general aviation headset.  This will allow the audio source to be heard in the users headset only. 

If you want passengers to be able to hear the audio source, you will need to connect your audio source to the aircraft intercom system using the Intercom Adapter found here

If you are using this in a helicopter, you'll need the Helicopter Adapter found here.

Awesome product
by FullThrottle from Spring TX USA 

Pros: Inexpensive solution with great quality.
Cons: Does not turn off music when somebody talks on the radio
Review: I love this product and it was a good purchase decision. This allows me to listen to music in any aircraft, and both myself and passengers can hear it. The only downsides are that there is no way to increase the volume other than whatever device you are playing it from, and it does not automatically silence the music when somebody talks on the radio.

Cheap alternative to new comm panel
by A Customer from  

Pros: Inexpensive, individual music for passengers thru headsets, no rewiring
Cons: none
Review: This adapter does exactly what it states. It provides an MP3 input for headphones without having to rewire the plane or change anything in your comm panel. The kids love it and provides an inexpensive alternative for passengers to listen to their individual Ipod's. Outstanding.

Same as the other comments
by Ben from Panama City FL USA 

Pros: Easy to use
Cons: too quiet
Review: Fairly inexpensive, but you get what you pay for. It is too quiet for my taste as well (Glasair 1, O-320). But, it does provide some background tunes, you just have to concentrate to hear it sometimes.

by Abdulmuti from Dhahran, Saudi Arabia 
Review: Very good product, worth the money. My only take on it is volume control it gets confusing some time to mute or lower the music volume when you want to listen to ATC. I didnt have to raise the volume for ATC to max to be able to hear as some ppl say in previous reviews so thats might be due to aircraft problem or mp3 player problem. I use mine in a DCH-8 airplane with Bose head set. Great product when you find volume sweet spot for ATC and your player.

It worked great for about 3 days...
by Brian from Bethel AK USA 

Cons: stopped working
Review: For the first 3 days I used this product it worked great! However, after that, I could hear music fine from my ipod, but I could not hear any radio transmisisons. It could be due to the 40 below temps in my work environment (cold Alaska winters), but not quite sure why it quit working...

Sort of works, with no volume control
by A Customer from Otter Rock OR USA 

Pros: Easy to install with not to much mess.
Cons: Volumes have to be set a max to hear ATC and intercom. MP3 volume set on high also.
Review: It will split audio input from an MP3 device and the aircraft audio panel with no volume control to speak of. Poor side tone on transmissions and intercom. Used with a Bose headset in a King Air.

MP3 Adapter For Headsets and Flight Helmets
by Cullen from Havelock NC USA 

Pros: Works as advertised when used with my ANR equipped helmet
Cons: Kind of cheap electrical materials but easier than making myself
Review: MP3 Headset adapter does its job. I use it with my "civilianized" military helmet and seems to work as advertized. My helmet is ANR with out a volume control so the radios seem to be extra loud even with the radio volume turned down. This adapter seems to "step down" some of the volume to a more acceptable level. This may be a "con" for some whose radios have a "low" volume level in the first place...please see the other reviews to see what they say. Seemed to indicate the adapter muted their volume too low.

Excellent piece of equipment
by Brian from Navarre FL USA 

Cons: None so far
Review: This thing works great. Very happy with the adapter. I run it through the Bose X headset and it works very well, even without being plugged into the aircraft. Highly recommend it.

Not great
by Nails from WA 

Pros: none really
Cons: too much messing around in flight
Review: Reduces com volume badly and can barely hear the music from the i pod. My airplane is very noisy though, it's a Pitts S-1 I had to buy a headphone amplifier as well which did the trick.

Good piece of gear

WORKS WITH BOSE X AVIATION HEADSET
by Bob from Scottsdale AZ USA 

Pros: Simple solution to connecting MP3 to the Bose Headset.
Cons: You must turn volume higher than normal setting on the aircraft audio panel to hear ATC when MP3 player is activated or you will not hear ATC. This must be a function of the Bose headset and not the fault of the splitter.
Review: I needed a splitter cord to connect my Bose Aviation and my MP3 player and still monitor ATC. I found that the headset adapter did the trick. I use it in a B747 and have found very little problems. You'd figure Bose would provide this feature with the $995 headset but that is another subject.

Volume problems
by Adam R from Los Angeles, CA 

Pros: Allows use of MP3 players while flying en route
Cons: Volume is weak for COMs
Review: I didn't like the product because as soon as I turned on my MP3 player the volume for the COMs was very weak and it was hard to listen to ATC. It's not bad if you are flying VFR and don't have to worry about listening to ATC all the time.

Works okay, not wonderful
by A Customer from Oregon 

Pros: Music is nice to have, easy adapter hook up
Cons: Volume control is very poor
Review: It is nice to have music in the cockpit but I don't think this adapter is the best solution. The volume control is not very good. When my MP3 player is attached and turned on the intercom volume is VERY low, I have to turn the volume on the radio AND headset up all the way to hear. If my MP3 player turns off I am blasted by the intercom volume. I feel as though I am constantly messing with the volume control to find a comfortable level.

by A Customer from Thousand Oaks, CA 
Review: My boyfriend loves it, but he had to mess with it to figure out how to tune out the music so he could hear the control tower well and or set it to the perfect volume when the captain would talk. If that makes any sense...this is coming from the girlfriend.

Previous Customer Questions For CD / MP3 Player Headset Adapter - Fixed Wing:
Ask Your Own Question
On Thursday, November 10, 2011 a customer asked:
Q:
If I connect this to a phone, will my headset microphone work on the phone?
A: No, this is intended only to be used for listening to music through your headset.  If you wish to use your cell phone, you would need to get something like the Matchbox Music/Cell Phone interface or the BluLink Cell Phone Adapter.

On Sunday, July 20, 2008 a customer asked:
Q:
I want to try this product out but I am nervous about the reviews stating that it lowers the comm volumes. If I try out the product and don't like it am I able to return it for a refund?
A: Yes, we have a full money back refund policy.  Return it within 30 days in original condition to get 100% refund (minus shipping charges).  You can read the details of our return policy here.

On Saturday, June 28, 2008 a customer asked:
Q:
Will the adaptor turn down the music when ATC?
A: No, this is just a direct adapter for music-to-headset connection. You may wish to take a look at the Muse Personal Music Device which will cut out the music upon ATC transmissions.

On Friday, October 19, 2007 a customer asked:
Q:
Does the tower hear the music when I transmit to them?
A: No, the tower will not hear the music. It is only heard by you (the person to whom the adapter is connected). Other passengers in the airplane will not hear the music either. If you want everyone INSIDE the cockpit to hear the music you would need the CD / MP3 Player to Intercom Adapter.

On Tuesday, August 21, 2007 a customer asked:
Q:
I have a Bose Generation X headset. I use the headset in C-130's. Will this adapter work with the plug we use.
A: Yes, the adapter should work just fine.

On Monday, January 22, 2007 a customer asked:
Q:
Is this for a U174/U jack?
A: No, this is not a helicopter/military jack. You would want this product instead: http://www.mypilotstore.com/mypilotstore/sep/3330

On Saturday, January 06, 2007 a customer asked:
Q:
Is there a cd/mp3 adapter plug that will mute the music when ATC talks?
