How does it work?
It's as simple as 1, 2, 3
- Just connect either end of the Rock 'N' Talk cable to your phone's 3.5mm stereo headset jack, extend the cable to your desired length (extracts to over 5 Feet!), and plug the opposite end of the cable into your vehicle's AUX-IN, Line-In or Audio-In port where you would normally connect a MP3 player or other audio input device.
(it doesn't matter which end you connect the Rock 'N' Talk cable, it is fully-reversible!, just position the microphone where it will be closest to you while you drive.)
- Turn your car stereo's function to "AUX", and make sure your phone's headset volume is to (high), or just below, and your car stereo's volume is at an medium level.
(fine volume adjustments up or down can be made very easily while on a call. Echo can be easily controlled by turning the car stereo volume down to 50%, and your phone's volume to 80-90%)
- Now, go ahead and play your music, ask Siri a question, Say a Command, Voice-dial or simply dial a phone number! When you end the call, your music resumes playing! You've just Rocked 'N' Talked & Rocked again!
Why does it work so well?
We took a look at what was out there and we just weren't satisfied...
Bluetooth kits in the car were nice, but were expensive, and they could be difficult to connect to on your phone each time. Many car kits store and therefore make public all of your contacts, and most car kits don't have any music streaming capabilities built into them.
FM Transmitters are compact, but have batteries in them that can go dead after time, and can also have interference or static problems.
A basic 3.5mm to 3.5mm 3-Ring auxiliary cable works great for playing music from your phone or media player, but when you make or receive a call you must use the phone's built-in microphone which is small and designed for your mouth to be just inches away from it, not a few feet like when you are driving in your car.
So, we set out to create the finest, most versatile multimedia audio cable ever built...
It needed to have a fantastic microphone. So, we used a German engineered noise-cancelling microphone right out of an extremely expensive Bluetooth car kit, (the same one they used in Maybach vehicles). Then, we figured out a special wiring technique inside the cable, and incorporated a 4-Ring TRRS Style 3.5mm connector to each side so it could be reversible (patent pending), so you could always position the cable's microphone side where it was closest or most convenient for you. Other AUX + Mic. cable solutions out there are single-directional, which only allows the microphone side of the cable to be on the AUX-IN, Line-In or Audio-In port side of the car. This just doesn't work at all if your AUX-IN, Line-In or Audio-In location for your vehicle is in the passenger-side glove box, or inside of the center arm rest, like so many are! Who's going to be able to hear you if your microphone is in there? So, we let you pick what's best for your application inside your car, microphone-side up on the dash, or on top of your phone...you choose! Just don't shut it inside the glove box.. please, we worked so hard for you!
Then, we took a hard look at the cables and wires themselves and saw how cluttered they make your car. We tested everything from curly cords, to basic straight cords and everything in between, until we found this retractable solution that everyone loved! The retractable Rock 'N' Talk cable starts out at just 4 inches long fully retracted, and can instantly extend out to just over 5 Feet! We also added catch stops inside the cable's winding mechanism with stops at 4", 10", 18", 26", 34", 41", 48", 54", or at 60" long. That's 9 different cable lengths in one!
Will this product work when I have a case protector on my Phone?
We allowed plenty of room on both sides of the cable to make sure the cable's tips are able to be firmly seated into the phone's headset jack or your car's AUX-IN, Line-In or Audio-In Port!
Does the Rock 'N' Talk work with Siri?
We use it with Siri all the time! You can speak to Siri through the microphone on the cable, and you'll hear Siri's responses through your car speakers.
Does the Rock 'N' Talk enable the FM Radio App on my Android Smartphone?
The Phone thinks a headset is plugged into the phone, so it uses the RNT1 as an antenna, and enables the App on your phone.
Will apps like Pandora or YouTube work with the Rock 'N' Talk?
All audio notifications, ringers, alarms, applications, videos, streaming audio come through the headset jack when the Rock 'N' Talk is connected.
Apps we've tested and confirmed work well with the Rock N Talk:
Google Music (Play), Grooveshark, iHeart Radio, iTunes, Last.fm, MOG, Pandora, Rdio, Rhapsody, Sirius XM, Sky.fm, Slacker, Spotify, VZ Navigator, Google Maps (voice prompts), YouTube, and Many More!

That's great! Turn the Bluetooth off and save your battery, you're not going to need it anymore!
