I tried those ebay adapters some time back but found them to be build in such a manner as to reverse the phasing of the phones when other cables were attached. The only solution was to re-bend one of the cable plugs in the opposite direction, but this is detrimental to the cable as over time, this area will fatigue and ultimately break.
I sent an email with diagrams to correct this issue and was told that I would be sent a proper set when this issue was fixed. I heard nothing and sent a followup and was told my address had gotten lost and I would again receive the re-designed set. I have heard nothing since. I don't know if the design was corrected or not.
It is easy to check for proper phasing as there are many online sites that one can use to test for in-phase and out-of-phase phones. The difference is clearly audible.
