Great for music, phone call...not so much...

I am giving this four stars despite the fact I am unable to use this for what I originally purchased this for. I drive a 2009 Lexus that has no Bluetooth connectivity. I recently upgraded iPhones and am no longer to plug in with 3.5mm port as the newer iPhones come only with a lightening port. I wanted something that would enable me to listen to music AND be able to make and receive phone calls and be activate the “hey Siri” option, all of which I was able to do the old fashioned way.
For music streaming, this little device is magical. Music sounds way better than before and I had zero issues setting up, which was super easy. I have been using this little guy for over two weeks and have gotten tons of use out of this both in my car and in my office.
This adapter has given new life to a little JVC executive stereo I bought over 10 years ago. I have purchased other Bluetooth transmitters in the past and paid way more money for them and none have worked as well as this little guy. The signal is always crisp and clear and the sound quality is absolutely amazing! I do not regret buying this item.
Now as far making phone calls goes, callers can hear me very well and most ppl have told me that they could not tell I was using a speaker phone. The mics work very well. Almost too well, actually. Every caller I have spoken to can hear themselves through the speakers on my end resulting in the echo some reviewers have complained about. This is pretty annoying and I no longer use this device for phone calls as a result. Total bummer really, because I really do my best to obey the hands free laws here in California. Not god for phone calls.
I can however use it to activate Siri, to send and read texts, ask for directions and to play music.
All in all this was absolutely worth the money I paid for this and I am certain to get a lot of use out of this wonderful little gadget.
