Reviews around ipod (5.00 of 5)

  • Another plus is you alway have a chaged Ipod ready to go.
  • The only good thing I have to say about the monster cable is that it charges my ipod as well, but if I wanted just a car
  • The only thing you may want to do is play around with the settings on your car radio as well as your Ipod for maximum sound quality.
  • i bought an ipod and the monster cable for my grandfather, and he loves it.
  • So if you are thinking of uncluttering the car from all those CDs and enjoying your iPod while driving, you should give this product a go.

Reviews around fm (4.51 of 5)

  • If you want a good FM transmitter, the Icarplay is the best you can get.
  • The station numbers are printed on the transmitter and you can just scan through all the channels on your radio to find the one that has the weakest signal or is just static (no FM station at all)
  • The two remaining frequencies sound like very distant FM stations... or possibly pretty good AM stations.
  • I believe it's probably the best FM transmitter out to date.
  • I then went out and bought what was supposed to be the best FM transmitter by C. Crane and Co ($80.00) according to Wired Magazine.

Reviews around frequency (4.13 of 5)

  • I traveled nearly 2000 miles through both urban and rural areas and never had a problem finding a clear frequency
  • I purchased one of these about a year and a half ago and liked it -- it was easy to use and I could find a static free empty frequency in Tucson although I did have some challanges with changing frequencies and static in the Phoenix area (not the transmitter's fault).Just recently the plastic split casing of the FM transmitter's cable that connects to the

  • The two remaining frequencies sound like very distant FM stations... or possibly pretty good AM stations.
  • The only problem I have is that the low end of the FM band is pretty crowded where I live and this often has me searching for a usable frequency.

Reviews around quality (3.83 of 5)

  • The quality cannot exceed that which would be seen in a 96 kbps mp3 because of the inherent limitations of FM radio
  • Sound quality while driving is more like AM radio or a poor quality portable phone, with static, interference from other radio stations, and a whine that increased with engine speed.
  • The sound quality is very good and I really wish this would
  • No, the sound quality isnt perfect but its what you should expect with a transmitter like this
  • Besides giving good sound quality, it is very easy to use.

Reviews around transmitter (3.79 of 5)

  • I would HIGHLY recommend this MONSTER FM Transmitter to anyone looking for the BEST transmitter money can buy
  • Would not recommend this transmitter, since its forcing me to buy another FM transmitter.

  • The presets worried me at first, because there is a big radio station in the presets range, but the transmitter had no problem on several of the 8 choices.
  • I bought it because several friends SWORE it was the best FM transmitter I could use with my iPod.

Reviews around unit (3.70 of 5)

  • The unit worked as advertised, but in the SF Bay Area, the FM pr-sets are inadequate
  • I have to take one star because the unit has a design flaw
  • Its nice only having to plug one unit into your ipod, and its size makes other units seem inferior.
  • The iTrip, at half the cost, was a much better, clearer sounding unit than the Monster one
  • In fact, this unit is so strong, that you can broadcast over a station that has faint music, something I found the I-trip, the I-tunes, and a whole host of other units couldn't do.

Reviews around music (3.65 of 5)

  • I get a lot of noise with more vocal, ambient, or softer music
  • Also as others have noted, it is no substitute for a CD nor, in my opinion, a "real" FM station; however, if you do not mind that the music sounds "thin" and the infrequent static in parking garages, certain bridges, etc
  • In addition to no background noise, the signal through the cassette adapter is much stronger, so I do not need to turn up the volume on soft music
  • The music is so clear that you would think it was playing directly from your car radio.
  • but it's easy to do and at least one other channel is clear so my listening music is never really disturbed

Reviews around sound (3.49 of 5)

  • I had to use the trebble reducer EQ setting or the sound was horrible
  • Even in a rural area, where a response is possible, the sound is brutal
  • This one has very clear reception and the sound is great
  • The sound is better than the other ones I've tried, too.
  • The sound with this cable is good, but i'm think that was better

Reviews around thing (3.42 of 5)

  • This thing works like a charm on stations 88.7, 89.1, 89.5
  • Not usually the safest thing to be doing while driving.
  • If you don't have a cassette player in your car, this thing will do the trick, but it doesn't always work perfectly
  • If you don't have a cassette player in your car, this thing will do the trick, but it doesn't always work perfectly
  • To add insult to injury, the thing broke within the first 24

Reviews around station (3.33 of 5)

  • With the other units I tried, I could get the music to work for a while, but as soon as I drove just a little ways, I would have to find a 'cleaner' (more static) station- even just a hint of reception would throw the music off.
  • I found that on I-95 in Connecticut, where there are a bunch of noncommercial stations, it was hard to find a good clear station to transmit on
  • Because we live in an area with very few radio stations, we have not experienced problems in finding a suitable station.
  • None of the others I tried seemed to be able to transmit over the weak stations available in New York
  • but it was easy enough to find a clear station especially with six pre-sets on my radio dedicated to the eight pre-programmed stations of the Monster

Reviews around signal (3.11 of 5)

  • However, the signal is still of coarse somewhat weak, especially in the bass range
  • The signal is not clear, there is static on all bands and the tone is basically marginal
  • In my area 88.1, has a station with an excellent signal
  • Too weak a signal , Too many wires etc they were just not worth the hassle
  • The signal is strong enough to use the radio's search function to find the iPod.

Reviews around icarplay (3.10 of 5)

  • So, for populated areas, I cannot recommend the iCarPlay.
  • If you want a good FM transmitter, the Icarplay is the best you can get.
  • A good friend of mine had the iCarplay and it worked well for
  • The iCarPlay is an effective, supremely easy-to-use solution for those of us with no cassette deck and a desire to play our iPod through our car stereo.
  • If your car lets you, I found that lowering the antenna improves iCarPlay reception.

Reviews around cable (1.95 of 5)

  • I purchased the Monster Cable iCarPlay Wireless FM Transmitter for iPod for a long vacation road trip
  • The cable worked perfectly on our 10 hour road trip to our vacation.
  • I have Itrip and another one and this Monster cable transmitter is the best!
  • I recently tried to help a friend of mine who purchased the iTrip and after trying every station on the iTrip to no avail, I hooked up my cable into his car and it worked perfectly.
  • No, it doesn't have a handy cradle to sit in, but the cable is long enough that you can sit the IPOD in a cup holder, dash or console.

Reviews around battery (1.69 of 5)

  • This gadget works as well as it can
  • I've found that the battery-based FM transmitters are fine for a few weeks, but start to degrade quickly once the batteries start to drain
  • No more road trips ending in silence due to the iPod's weak battery life2) 8 radio stations to choose from.
  • It is my understanding that you should always completly drain a lithium battery of power before re-charging so that the battery life decreases evenly
  • I originally bought the iRock when it first came out but quickly gave up on it because of the amount of static as well as short battery life.

Reviews around problem (1.69 of 5)

  • So far he has had no problems and he is enjoying the product.
  • Wireless FM Transmitter has erased this problem forever.
  • In some areas, clashing with radio stations is a big problem
  • Once we purchased the iCarPlay we have not had any static problems.
  • The other problem is that it will only work in a car since it draws power from a cigarette ligther

Reviews around background noise (1.44 of 5)

  • In addition to no background noise, the signal through the cassette adapter is much stronger, so I do not need to turn up the volume on soft music
  • In my dad's Lexus LS 430 the unit did not work whatsoever, and in my 2000 Mustang the unit worked off and on but with constant fuzz background noise and the volume on my stereo had to be turned up 50% more than usual
  • When playing soft music, I had to turn up the volume so loud that the background noise was a real problem.
  • This worked for the most part but in your quieter passages there was a background noise that was very noticable
  • This gadget works as well as it can
