    4th one in less than a year

    Abysmal, literally only ever use them while phone is sat on my desk, on my fourth one since I got the iPhone 7 plus on launch day. I have owned maybe 100 Bluetooth devices over the years and not a single one beats a 3.5mm jack in any capacity. First time in 10 years I've looked at android phones to get my normal headphones back. Extremely unhappy!

    Cheaply made and Barely Functional

    So I live 35 mins from the nearest Apple Store (but only 15 mins from my States Capitol and heart of the city?), and just drove to the store today to replace my husbands adapter that he lost. Get home and run some more errands my side of town and, kid you not, MY adapter went out. We've had our phones for less than 6 months. This product is not made with the quality Apple standards that we've become accustomed to, and honestly it's SO INCONVINENT to have to rely on this adapter. You can't charge your phone and listen to music at the same time. Forgot your adapter? No aux music while you're in the car. And if this tiny gadget is literally required to enjoy your music while in your car or a friends, it needs to be built to last. I'm incredibly frustrated. Removing the traditional headphone jack was the worst idea Apple has ever had.

    Should Not Have to Purchase This

    Worst. Decision. Ever. on Apple's part. I can't stand this extra part. I can't charge my phone while listening to music and am frequently irritated when I need it but I left it in the car, it's at home when I'm at work, etc. It's annoying to have to always remember this bring this tiny gadget, not to mention trying to keep track of where the darn thing is.

    Wish I could give it no stars

    Unbelievably stupid decision to get rid of the headphone jack. Suddenly all my earphones and sleep devices need these stupid adapters which are easily lost and barely work. The audio quality is rubbish. And you can't charge while listening. Worst design mistake in Apple's history.

    Lose it, break it

    One busted, two lost. Thought I'd buy a bucket-load of third party versions as I'm getting tired of ordering over and over for such an unnecessary and bad product - it's interesting to see that software updates have already stopped the ebay knock--offs from working.
    Corporate courage at it's finest.

    Will break after 4 months

    I hope nobody can hear me every time I whisper terrible things under my breath every time this adapter pauses my music/switches to the next song/activates Siri when I'm not even touching my phone. I am on my second adapter that has broken in the same way that my first one did. Steve Jobs would be ashamed of this terrible product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Worst product change ever by Apple

    Be prepared to spend a lot of money keeping a bag of these around because they will be getting lost, left on planes etc. And if you need to charge and use audio then you are screwed again unless you get BT headphones. Even the new RED Smartphone stuck with the 3.5MM jack.

    Why?

    I understand the incentive to rework and improve and that's almost always positive. The fact that Apple is now forcing its customers to purchase an adapter simply to continue using a basic function of any smartphone is ridiculous. The adapter is cheaply made and lacks longevity, decreases sound quality, and is just an inconvenience.

    Frustrated

    This is Apple's worst idea yet! I should have known better. The thing worked for a small number of days before it started disconnecting from my phone and I had to keep taking it back out then putting it back in. Also I always need the thing when it's either in my other bag or i have used it for something else and left it there, until I lost the thing anyway! It may only be £9.99 to buy a new one but I can't bring myself to even value it above 99p. I tried buying a cheaper version but I obviously had all the same problems. Solution being Apple needs to bring the jack back ASAP.

    Garbage

    As others have said, flimsy, broke after a few weeks of using in my car, and sound quality wasnt there. Sorry Apple, ive been a long time customer (G4, G5, 2 iMacs, macbook pro, 3 ipads, 4 ipods, almost every version of iphone) but this is a major disappointment. Some things are better left untouched! This will be my last iphone if future models have this feature for audio.

    Poor output, mediocre/poor sound quality.

    Because the DAC/headphone amp had to be fitted into this adapter, it's performance is quite pathetic.

    Even with basic earbuds vol has to be cranked to about 90% for sufficient sound level. Bass output is very shallow and the rest of the scale does not deserve praises either.

    The only thing that is somewhat acceptable is the price. Because you are going to need to buy a new one, since you are going to lose or break this thing eventually.

    Apple, you are going down. The only reason I am using your product is that my employee gives me no options. Original innovative Apple has been long gone... :(

    Stupidest product from apple

    This is a total waste of time but only does it break easy because of the length it extends but it keeps cutting calls out as there's nit 2 connection points instead of one . Seriously Steve jobs wil be rolling in his grave with this piece of crao product.

    And they expect people to pay $12 for it.

    If they had an option to give it 0 stars I would

    Poorly Made

    I have gone through 5 of these in less than 6 months. They are not made if you are very active; running, working out ect. I wish they would make a solid adapter not one with a cord.

    Why?

    I am constantly needing this adapter when I don't have it. Just got in the car for a trip and realized its at home plugged into my PC headphones. So I have 3 hours of driving with no access to music. It's annoying to tote around this tiny piece of equipment just to do what my previous 2 iPhones did. Why are you punishing me, Apple?

    So disappointed

    I am so disappointed the jack stopped working and now I can use hands free at all.
    I will never buy another iPhone or any other apple product.

    HORRIBLE

    This will be my last Iphone for sure. The adapter is garbage and ridiculous. I started losing one side of audio in my car to pretty much losing all audio unless I somehow found the right niche at the connector. I went out and bought a new line and adapter...SAME THING.

    Garbage

    This is garbage it broke down on me within a month twice now
    This is infuriating to be listening to music and have Siri turn on or the music pause or even speeding up skipping restarting the song it's extremely enfuriating to deal with the this. I could be watching a YouTube video and bam it will just start skipping restarting pausing playing opening Siri when I'm just trying to watch a vid. Fix this NOW I have already decided to make the switch to android for my next phone until this gets fixed.

    Cheap & Fragile

    These adapters seem to work great if they are held in a extended, static position for the entire life of the adapter (not practical). If a user lives their life as normal, and the adapter is used, and subsequently bent in ways in which it is intended to be (listening to music through headphones when the phone is in your pocket; listening to music through an auxiliary cable while driving; working out; etc. etc.), it seems to fail very quickly (within a couple months) at generating acceptable sound quality. My suggestion to Apple would be to produce more durable adapters, potentially an "active" style of some kind.
