    great but...

    • Written by Esme C from Bakersfield

    I’ve been reading other comments on how theirs have stopped working or just complete broke. I don’t understand how people can break theirs so easily. I’ve have 2 (I found one on the floor at work a while back) and both work perfectly fine. One of them is over a year old. I listen to music every day for hours a day. Have had no problems with it. But I am getting tired of not being able to charge my phone and listen to music at the same time. You guys need to create one that supports both at the same time. There are many on Amazon but they have bad reviews because they stop working after new updates. Please create an official one.

    Works just fine

    I bought two not trusting much the bad reviews. It is working just fine either with Apple’s headset or Bose QC25. The volume control and the mic works for both headsets.

    Works Great!

    If your headphone controls don't work, you need to update to iOS 10.0.2. The lack of inline control was a bug fixed in that release.

    I bought a few of these (my car isn't as fancy as some, regular headphones--where are my Bose QC25 friends at?, extra at my desk just in case). Once I updated, they work as I would expect headphones connected the "old way" would.

    Well it works ��

    • Written by Jellica A from Elizabeth

    Yes , we all know that its BS idea that they took out the headphone jack for idk what reason but I’m glad I still have the ability to listen to music in my car via aux cord using this . It does what it’s supposed to do . Just stressful that I can’t listen and charge at the same time .

    I hate using this adapter as I wanna plug my earbuds like before. However, it's been a year and half and I've had no issues with this adapter. Also I listen to music all day and I connect this with my beats headphones and have had zero issues.

    THESE ACTUALLY WORK FINE

    • Written by Brian D from Colorado Springs

    This adapter DOES work with Bose headphones for Apple, both for volume control and mute as well as the in-line microphone. They are super flimsy, so dropping your phone with this adapter installed is a bad idea, but it is a bad idea anyway.

    Buying a couple spares to keep around. I hate that I need the product, and wish there was a stronger nylon braided version, but it does actually work as intended.

    Works perfectly fine

    • Written by William M from Clinton

    I don't understand the overwhelming number of negative reviews. I bought a couple of these when I received my iPhone XR late last October, and they have worked fine. Granted, I typically leave them attached to their headphones and do a minimal amount of disconnecting and connecting to another mp3 cable.

    I'm about to order a third.

    Works perfectly as expected

    • Written by Logan T from CALGARY

    I've seen many reviews indicating no functionality with inline controls. It worked perfectly with my Bose in-ear sport headphones.

    Was a bit skeptical from the reviews, so I tested in store prior to purchase. Functions as promised!

    Fine

    • Written by Giles B from Northcote

    Apple is a forward thinking company, and removing the headphone jack was the right move. Yes, there’s still sometimes a call for 3.5mm jacks while we’re in this transition stage and that’s where this dongle comes in. I think in the future we’ll all be wireless and happy for it.

    Works for me.

    • Written by Beverly W from Abilene

    This jack adapter worked fine with my "sleep time" headphones. Until I lost it. I bought what I thought were "apple" brand adapters, but after my excitement getting them, great disappointment that they don't work. So, it is either switch to Bluetooth (which doesn't work well at night) or buy an authorized one. Apple, couldn't you at least lower the price to $5? The headphones that came with my new phone are not comfortable and fall out all the time.

    Perfect

    • Written by Aaron W from Coldstream

    I read some of the other reviews before I purchased this lightning to headphone jack adapter as I have a nice pair of Bose headphones I was hoping to use. Some of the reviews said that it didn't work with the in-line mic or volume controls so I was thinking how I would get this to work. I even spoke with the guy at the computer store and he said that it wouldn't work with the remote controls, which would be a pain as I love to listen to podcasts and music on the go. Imagine my surprise when I plugged in my Bose headphones and clicked on the volume control and it worked! Then I tested the mic to ask Siri something and it worked too! I won't have to buy Bluetooth headphones or some sort of Bluetooth adapter thing either to get them to work. I think though, your headphones might have to have the official 'works with iPhone' on it to work, but I'm not sure. Anyway, before you decide not to buy, this might actually do the trick. I purchased the item yesterday (Aug. 14, 2018) so perhaps Apple has changed the product from the one they introduced when the iPhone 7 came out, but I can tell you with confidence it works with at least one set of headphones I've tried. Now to try the other ones. I'm happy with the purchase. Thanks.

    Exactly as advertised.

    • Written by Mokhtar J from Montreal

    This adapter does exactly what it's supposed to do.

    99% of these reviews have actually nothing to do with the product, but are leaving 1 star reviews because they disagree with Apple removing the headphone jack, or they lost this adapter (yeah seriously, you attack a product because of your own carelessness?), or some other such nonsense. What a bunch of children. The headphone jack was developed in the 1800s. It's absolutely ancient, and its the right call for Apple to finally remove this jack and try to move things forward, same as what they've done with all ports that are now considered obsolete. What also amazes me is people who bought the iPhone then pretend to be surprised about the lack of a headphone jack, and accuse Apple of destroying their business or making their lives inconvenient because they "rely on" this jack. Newsflash, Apple also still sells the iPhone SE, 6S, and 6S+. Nobody FORCED you to buy the iPhone 7, especially if a headphone jack is such a big deal to you. Instead of doing your research and buying the best product for your needs, you blindly make a purchase just so that you can whine like babies afterwards.

    NOT BAD AT ALL

    • Written by Denise T from BRONX

    I for one don't have an issue with this adapter. I use the one that came with my iPhone X with the old earbuds that I had with my iPhone 6. I have a couple of 3.5 mm Apple earbuds that I plan to use this gadget on. I even use it on my wireless Beats with no problem.

    Works great !

    • Written by Desmond Y from Singapore

    Got it out of curiosity as wondering how it would sound compared to the 3.5mm jack. Product works fine with any lightning port iOS devices.
    Removing the headphone jack is a disappointment to many people, but sooner or later it will not exist in our devices (not just Apple products). So just accept it.

    Pretty good!

    • Written by Emele T from Liverpool

    I’ve actually never had a problem with the headphone jack before. I use it everyday since I listen to music a lot and it’s been pretty good to me. I’ve only had mine for a year since the last one I had before went missing (oh that’s the down side of it since it’s so small it’s so easy to misplace haha). Other than the size it’s actually a good protect. I have no complaints

    Works Just Fine

    • Written by Randy B from Seattle

    I own a number of pairs of moderate to high-end headphones (B&H, Bose and UE). I tested the adapter with them on my new iPhone 7 Plus and compared with direct line into my iPhone 6s. The sound is easily comparable between the two, although the sound quality from the 7 Plus appeared to be somewhat improved!

    As for issues with the in-line controls, I did not have any problems with them using the Volume, Pause, Prev and Next controls. They all worked fine without any problems. Again, I'm using good quality headphones so can't vouch for cheaper ones which may not have been manufactured according to Apple specs. Note: I did not test in-line mic functionality.
