    At LEAST make it durable if we're forced into it...

    Ridiculously flimsy. The connector wore out fast and while it was still (barely) functional it kept starting/stopping my audio/activating Siri, etc.
    Sort it out, Apple. This thing is completely superfluous in the first place.

    Garbage: wore out in 2 months. Don't waste your money.

    I use my headphones pretty much every day, but I do so like a normal human being. Over the course of 2 months from general use, the rubber coating of the adapter developed a tear, which damaged the internal wiring. As a result, the headphones themselves work, but movement of the cable will close the circuit for the home button, so music will sporadically stop, play, stop, fast forward, press-and-hold to talk to Siri. Hardly ideal. Barely functional.

    Cheap half replacement

    My first one fell apart quickly; this is poorly made, especially given that it's forced upon us all.

    headphone's don't work for phone calls

    the iphone 7 inability to have a working headphone option that allows for me to talk on the phone with a wired headset is extremely disappointing.

    Bad Decision, hurt the product

    It has been very annoying and frustrating to deal with the adaptor that breaks easily and is very easy to loose. I have had to buy multiple adaptors for my various devices and find it very frustrating. The headphones that work with my cell phone no longer work with my MacBook. This was a poor decision and the airport headphones a far to expensive. This had made me strongly reconsider what type of phone I will be getting in the future.

    Terrible product, that stopped working almost immediately

    Aside from the frustration that the controls to my 3rd party headphones did not work when I used this adapter, which was inconvenient, but manageable. The main problem was after a few uses it has stopped working entirely (Only had it sat in my pocket on my commute, I didn't take it scuba diving in the Mariana trench, halfway up mount everest, or a spacewalk on the international space station).
    It now doesn't register headphone are connected and simply plays music out loud.
    I am currently restricted to using apples standard headphones when using my phone, needless to say they are not great sound quality.

    VERY POOR QUALITY PRODUCT.

    Awful

    Totally useless, headphones cut in and out with any movement and when they do work there's a popping sound.

    Extremely fragile

    I thought the EarPods were fragile, then this came along. Inline mic does not always function.

    Fragile and doesn't work with 3rd party microphones

    This adapter doesn't work with 3rd party headphones with microphones. Broke after 2 weeks of use with iPhone 7.

    Causes popping

    I love my iPhone 7 plus. The camera is great, water resistance useful, etc etc. However the lack of a 3.5mm jack is disgraceful and highly inconvenient. The adapter claims to allow 7 owners to still use their favorite headphones earbuds and headsets that have a 3.5mm but this is FALSE. the dongle causes popping and crackling regardless of how clean it is kept. Bring back the jack in the iphone 7s/8 and in the meantime, come out with a higher quality adapter.

    Don't fix it if it's not broken.

    I hate that you have to carry around an extra piece just to listen to your music. I do find that this works with my Yurbuds pretty well. It has an in line mic that allows me to control my volume and music.

    Frustrating

    I have three pairs of headphones for different locations, and an auxiliary jack for my car. All of them are useless unless I have this adapter, which I never do because it's always in the location I'm not. Very frustrating. I suppose I'm supposed to buy four of these things? I also run into the situation at work where I need to charge and use my headphones at the same time. Does that mean I need a fifth different adapter? I literally would rather the phone battery be a quarter of an inch smaller just so could have this jack in the phone. So frustrating. Please bring it back or think of a better solution for the next iPhone.

    Are You Actually Kidding Me Apple?

    We all live busy lives, and keeping track of this tiny, flimsy, ridiculous chord is an unrealistic expectation. I am an organized thoughtful person, and I lost it within the first week, because its just super small and easy to misplace! I of course purchased a car AUX adapter,and repurchased this contraption, since I want to be able to listen to music in the car. Taking away a small whole in the bottom of the iPhone isn't the amazing innovation you seem to think it is. It just causes inconvenience and annoyance towards your product. Maybe you did this to get people to buy the iPhone 8... making the iPhone 7 as annoying as possible would probably work for you - well played Apple.

    Nuisance

    Spending 10 dollars for a product like this just to use a normal pair of headphones is ridiculous. This little cable is such a nuisance and extremely needed if you lose the earbuds that apple sent with the phone. Apple is becoming to be just a money trap with everything they do now. For example,$160 for Bluetooth headphones that are lost before you even buy them. Really annoyed with apple and they better switch it up or they will be losing a lot of customers - as much as it pains me to say it - to android..

    Going from worst to even worst.

    For starters my 300$ Bose headphones made for iPhone doesn't work properly thanks to this un useful piece of plastic, forget using the audio controls or the microphone, and second I have to pay for this not once but 3 times because I need one for each of my headphones. Sorry apple but you are looking another client, next time I better buy a Android phone. I don't understand when apple stopped doing smart design to all this devices that requires you to buy adapters all the time. My recommendation avoid buy this adapter from Apple and look for third party providers, you basically get the same but cheaper.

    Pointless

    Whats the point of taking away the headphone jack Apple? If its for water resistance then why don't you cover for water damage? The S7 has a headphone jack, and it covers for water damage. Plus this stupid cable is tiny, I lost mine in a week. and now i gotta buy another one for 9 dollars? I'm not impressed. Can you come up with a better solution for the 7S at least?

    Does not last

    Seems cheaply made. Used for about two months without any serious wear. Just from the motion of having the phone in my pocket while walking it is broken to the point where audio cuts in and out and pauses and unpauses randomly. Using with apple headphones. Super annoying to have to carry two pairs of headphones to use with my laptop and phone so the dongle was convenient. Was more convenient when there was an audio jack...

    Garbage

    I had the phone for 2 weeks and the Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter is already broken. To make matters worse it broke inside the phone and took going to a repair shop just to get the piece removed from the phone so I could use the charger. VERY DISAPPOINTED IN APPLE

    Broke within a month.

    I always carefully pulled it by the lightning case of the adapter (not by the wire) because it looks fragile. I take it out once to use my actual aux cord on my iPod but when I put the adapter back in, it doesn't work. No matter how careful you can be, it can break. The right side of my car speaker does not play clearly and I've tested the adapter on multiple devices to make sure it wasn't my car or my phone.

    Cheap, poor quality

    Lasted me two uses and broke. Also, I do not like how we have to carry an extra chord around just to listen to music on our earphones, just another unnecessary hassle. Apple, you did no favors for your customers bringing this one out.
