Edsets Audio Adapters

Is anyone using one of these as an input from an iPhone or MP3 player to listen on you bike headset?

I will be shortly. No reason it won't do the job if you order the 5 pin version. You will need a cord for the IPhone with a male jack on each end.

Don't waste your money!
I bought/tried one for a MP3 player and it didn't work. (hardly any volume at the headset even though my MP3 pumped out lots of volume)
Get the GPS Audio Input device that Scott sells here!

Right. The large, headphone speakers are quite high impedance, and the phone or MP3 player, designed to push audio into tiny low-impedance headphones simply can't get a decent signal into them. The result is audio that is so quiet that you can barely hear it, even with the device set to full volume. If you already have music playing (or intercom, or road noise), you won't hear it at all. This is exactly why the GPS Input was originally created.
