    0 stars for me. A waste of money

    Got this thinking apple would know what they are doing with their products. Was already annoyed when they got rid of the headphone jack altogether. Then they play this game with loyal customers. Charging almost £35 for a piece of junk that doesn’t even work. Attempted to charge and play music at the same time in my car and all I got was a high pitch squeak out of it. Sort yourselfs out apple. This is getting embarrassing. Switching to Samsung, where they actually take care of their customers. Not go after the wallet every time

    Works on and off

    It toggles between charging and charging I have to unplug it and plug it again.I told the wire was broken so I bought a new one but it does the same thing with my iPhone 8 Plus.

    Should be named "It won't last"...

    While the splitter works initially, I have had two of these now and both have broken during light use. The first didn't last 6 months. The second didn't last 3 months before cutting out. I made sure to plug & unplug by pulling only on the hard plastic covering the plug (no pulling on the cord).

    I don't know who Belkin is using for their technicians, design, & quality control but they all need to be fired. Absolute garbage product...

    Will break in 3 months under normal use!

    I should know, I’ve purchased 3 from the Apple store. Each time, they failed just OUTSIDE the return period.

    I thought the first one was a fluke, and with the second I swore “never again!”

    The third time, I got smart and wrapped the whole cord with electrical tape, since it seems like that is the failure point...failed in 4 months instead of two!!!

    If I could give this piece of junk zero stars, I would. Frankly, I give Apple zero stars for recommending this product and not having an OEM option ready for the iPhone 7 launch.

    Wish I could give this zero stars

    This adapter was $35, which is frankly quite a lot for an item that we never previously had to have (because we had a dedicated audio port as well as a charging port). However, I listen to a lot of music and baseballs games during the workday so I often need to charge up before the workday is over. This thing worked well for about a week - I could charge and listen at the same time. Then the audio jack died - it will go in and out, which is embarrassing because all of a sudden, the sound starts blaring out of the phone with no notice. Then the charging died - which means this thing is totally useless. If this were an off-brand charger not endorsed by Apple, that would be one thing. But the fact that this died WITHIN A MONTH AND A HALF while being the "Apple Certified" version of this item is infuriating. DO NOT BUY.

    Also Apple, get a clue. I don't think it's unreasonable to want to be able to charge and listen (the way we ALWAYS have until this ridiculous form factor came out) at the same time. And no, I'm not interested in bluetooth speakers as their price point is too high.

    Pretty much trash

    I purchased this when I got my phone 8, in less than 2 months, it had already stopped working. It stared by the sound cutting out here and ther, but it then very quickly escalated in to saying that it was not comparable with my phone. I complained to belken, so they sent me a new one for free. That was a month ago. It’s broken again. I will not be getting another one.

    Had two...both failed.

    This adapter is an embarrassment, or at least it should be. I've had two, and both failed at about the same six month point. Save your money, do not buy this sad excuse for an adapter!

    # have failed within months of purchase

    This thing may cost me my marriage. I use it only at night and keep it on the bedside table (not abused) after a couple of months intermittently it loses connection with the audio of the phone. I put on a book to go back to speed, sound comes out of speakers and my wife wants to kill me. STEVE WOULD NOT BE HAPPY!!!

    Unimpressive Plastic

    The audio and charger cable will only work intermittently, cable is annoyingly thick, and absurdly priced. Side effects of using this annoying piece of prestige priced plastic is that you will feel indignant, but probably continue to buy apple products and 3rd party bandaid solutions like this one.

    What an expensive trash

    Never worked once... tried everything-

    I never even made it as far as seeing if my ear phones worked.... it never even charged my phone without audio....I was fortunate to have had this happen so soon so i could refund it.

    I will try not to gripe too much about Apple- because I keep buying their products regardless of how much they use and abuse their buyers.... they know fully well people will still purchase their product- so that makes ME crazy.

    But I will say this: Belkin is awful.... third product I purchased that was overpriced and was faulty from the get go. Where I feel I DO deserve to hate on Apple is the fact that they recommend such an awful product- “the dual charge blocker”

    Trash

    Worked for a week and then suddenly headphone jack no longer worked. I don’t recommend buying this product I’m sure you can find a different one that isn’t as useless as this one.

    Garbage

    Bought it was finally happy that i could both, charge and listen to some music at the same time. Doesn’t even work. Bring back normal jacks you get enough money why are you adding more unnecessary stuff to sell?

    Unimpressive solution.

    It's clunky, expensive, and I have to turn my iphone8 on/off for the device to work. But I no longer get the "this accessory may not be supported" popup on the phone constantly as I did when I tried a cheaper alternative. Really disappointed this is the direction Apple is pushing customers. I am uninterested in wireless headphones, I miss the simple headphone jack.

    Waste of money.

    For one month it worked perfectly. Now it no longer transmits audio, nor does it charge consistently. I’ve tried it both with and without the Apple battery case but the results were the same. Expensive and downright awful. How Apple could recommend this to any customer is beyond me.

    Useless junk. Failed on day 1.

    I bought this today, opened the box, plugged it in, and my phone flicks from charge to not charge constantly. Vibratingand playing a "dong" noise every second - which obviously runs the battery DOWN.

    Great when it works

    This thing was great for around the first 2 months I had it. Audio won’t play through the adapter anymore even though I’ve kept it in good condition. Hopefully mine was just defective!

    worked for 6 months, now getting shaky

    I had loved this product for the past 6 months, and then about 2 weeks ago it sometimes doesn't seem to want to work at all. If I unplug it altogether and start playing around with unplugging it from my MacBook, then just audio, then plugging the USB back into the MacBook, sometimes that makes it work but sometimes that doesn't work either. Seems like it has a short or something. I called Belkin today and although he had no answer for me at first, once I mentioned that I now have an iPhone 8, he latched onto that and pointed out on their website that it doesn't mention it will support the iPhone 8. Unfortunately it started happening 2 weeks ago, just before I got the iPhone 8, so that definitely isn't the reason. 6 months isn't sufficient for a product that that has no moving parts.
