This review is from: MUSE i15w TA2024 Class T-Amp Super Mini Stereo Amplifier 2x15W Silver
Pros: Nice amp, if only...
Has an on/off power switch and volume control, all one knob.
Sounds good, works as well as any TA2024-based amp.
Cons: ... but the power jack is NON-STANDARD.
A large majority of all available power supplies on the US market (and European also I believe) use the 5.5mm X 2.1mm barrel plug.
This thing uses a 5mm X 2.0mm (maybe 2.1mm) plug.
I have a VAST collection of power supplies of all kinds. Literally 30 years' accumulation from work in the electronics and computer industries. Not ONE of them regardless of voltage output has a 5mm plug. Not a SINGLE one.
Furthermore I spent 45 minutes searching the Web and the sites of electronics suppliers in search of 5mm plugs. They are almost nonexistent. They do exist but mostly in forms I wouldn't bother with.
I gave up and wired power in directly.
I could, I think, put a 5.5mm jack in place of the 5mm outrage on the circuit board, but I wasn't feeling patient enough to measure footprints and face dimensions of what might be dozens of jacks at a half dozen suppliers.
Other Thoughts: Don't buy this unless you have a soldering iron and know how to use it.
Seriously this is one of the most bone-headed moves I have ever seen from a supposedly decent electronics supplier. It makes me doubt that MUSE is anything but a fly-by-night operation.
You make products people can use easily or you're stupid.
BTW, a decent TA2020-based amp should perform better than this or any TA-2024 device; at perhaps 2~4X the price. But if you're not an audiophile I doubt you'd ever know the difference.
This review is from: 3.5mm Male to 2.5mm Female headset adapter fits most Cell Phone models
Pros: Works for my purposes.
Cons: Possible con: it may or may not connect all devices. With one mic/earphone combination it seemed not to run the earphone but does work well with the mic.
But the mic was all I cared about, and subsequently I cut off the earbud. Elsewhere I saw a comment that a substantially identical adapter worked with earphones but didn't work with a mic. Go figure. YMMV.
Other Thoughts: I have a couple of old wired headsets with decent mics. Needed a wired external mic for use with my phone. This adapter was the ticket to make those old mic useful.
I nipped the earbud off one of the devices with no problem, and the formerly "in-line" mic is now serving its purpose well as a lapel mic -- along with a little clip I found in the junk collection.
Pros: Price is good, better than typical retail, yet with very high ratings.
The batteries took a charge quickly and are working well.
Other Thoughts: Working well in daily-use flashlights. Not enough experience wiuth these batteries yet to detail their performance but I can verify they're putting out somewhat more power than some other, 1- to 2-year-old NiMH batteries I'm using for the same purposes.READ FULL REVIEW
