Good overall


Great overall buy. Pretty decent deal.

Very good so far. No loss of quality when the audio is split. There is a slight loss of volume but it is very negligible. Overall amazing quality. They do exactly what they are advertised to do ; They are also very good looking which is a plus

The individual volume control works nice, but it doesn't allow for control over the entire volume range as you might call it. It only allows you to adjust the volume down or up a notch. The volume control feature is still very useful nonetheless

It works.


I like them. They work. It's just a splitter though, so that's about all I CAN say about them.

It splits headphones. It works. It's pretty. Individual volume control is a plus

There are cheaper ones out there (but they don't look as pretty, and may not have volume controls)

Good Quality Cover


I've seen some flimsy silicone cases, and some hardshells. This one is a great silicone case. It's thick, sturdy, and protective. Dropped the iPod a few times, and it's held up with no damage. The design is not bad too. My only complaint is that it...

I use it for my 2nd gen. iPod touch. I just got it and it seems very durable. It is easy to use buttons through it. For me it also works as a grip.

Durable, Good Value, High Quality

no cons

Consumer review by:



Unless you have a cigarette lighter right next to the steering wheel, changing a song is quite a hassle. If you hit a bump or your car's suspension is a little shaky, the transmitter will jiggle out of place and turn off.

Low Quality

Don't buy it!


LCD Display poor. Audio quality fair, volume level terrible. Uses the iTouch Line signal (not Audio jack) and there is very little sound level. I have to turn my car stereo to full volume to hear the tracks. Pick another one.....

Good Value

Low Quality

Excellent product-volume control a plus!


I have tried regular splitters and they all work, but this one with the built in volume control is great. No argument over sound too loud or too soft.

This Thing Sucks!!


This item gave me a hard time to even attemp to put it on. I tried several times and I could not accomplish anything. All it did was fustrate me. I am taking it back to the store where purchased.

Doesn't Fit Well, Doesn't Protect Well

Great for your iPod!


This is the best case I have bought for my iPod. The best thing about this is that it's so easy to scroll. Other cases don't portect your scroller or won't let you scroll. It protects your iPod really well and has a nice grip to it. You won't get...

Product Specifications

This indispensable accessory lets you share your music and videos with a friend; great for car trips, plane flights, waiting rooms - anywhere you're in the mood to share. Plug SmartShare into the mini-jack of any iPod, MP3, CD, portable DVD player or laptop computer and invite a friend to a party of two. Since some partygoers like their music and soundtracks louder than others (you know who you are), Griffin has integrated a slim volume control slider into each of SmartShare's output jacks. Share your music, not your volume preferences. Great design, small enough to carry anywhere, makes SmartShare a must-have addition to any accessory bag.
