Want to enjoy lovely STEREO music or your favorite podcast in your headset? Or listen to the traffic/terrain warnings from your favorite software app? Maybe help calm a passenger or keep the children busy in the back with music or a movie? The CRAZEDpilot Music Adapter Cable connects any 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo music device (iPod, iPhone, MP3 player, CD player, Garmin with XM radio, etc.) directly between the intercom and your GA (dual plug) headset.
In most modern aircraft, the music will be heard through the individual headset it is connected to rather than through the entire intercom system, yet the intercom system still functions properly and you can continue to talk comfortably to your passengers (or the passengers using their own CRAZEDpilot Music Adapter) - anyone with a CRAZEDpilot Music Adapter Cable can listen to their own choice of soothing music while enroute to your destination.
In older intercom systems, the music may be heard by either just your front or rear passengers (or both) depending on internal intercom circuitry.
Do you have a Bluetooth compatible device? Consider the CRAZEDpilot Bluetooth Headset Interface instead!
For best audio level, make sure your levels are all set right. Turn your phone / audio device volume to max, turn your headset clear UP to max, then turn DOWN your intercom volume until it's comfortable but still audible.
Audio is always prioritized from the ATC/Intercom from the aircraft - in many devices the audio level of your music input will drop slightly, differing to reception of aircraft audio for maximum safety. Always set your volume levels so as to never inhibit your ability to fly safe!
** This device is for listening to audio, it does not support telephone calls through the headset.

I like this so much I bought two, one for me and one for my wife. We use it to interface with our iPads to hear alerts from ForeFlight. However, used by itself, the volume is not loud enough to hear over the background noise, even with DC and Bose noise cancelling headsets, so I added a Fiio A3 portable headphone amplifier, 450 mW, to amplify the sound. This makes the volume in my headset perfect for the traffic, terrain, runway, 500 feet alerts by ForeFlight!
Will buy another
I got this adapter to use connecting my iPad to my headphones (no Bluetooth in my old David Clarks). The construction and materials seem fine and it works well. The Foreflight voice came into my headphones to let me know I was approaching the runway during my first taxi with the adapter and it was nice.
I have used the adapter to connect the audio output of my iPad mini to my older Halo in-ear headset (newer models may now have a socket for external audio.) It works fine. I don't use it for listening to music, though - I use the iFlyGPS app on the iPad because it provides useful audio alerts (traffic, terrain, airspace, and so on) that would otherwise not be heard over engine noise. I don't have to keep the iPad in my scan anymore checking for the corresponding visual alerts.
