    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.

    lightning ear phones to other mobiles

    Hi, apple gave a converter to connect other earphones to apple devices. But they should invent other converter to fit lightning ear phones to other devices. This really hurts to connect lightning earphones to laptop or other devices. Please invent one converter

    Disappointment

    I've had it for 3 days and it is already broken. I use it to work out because I have wired headphones that go over my head and the connection went spotty within the first day and by the third it was done for. A complete disappointment. What will you do for me apple. I refuse to buy another one until you guys make it sturdier for the same price, this is ridiculous.

    Breakable losable nonsense

    Failed after a month of regular use. Disappointing. Sometimes brave is stupid.

    Surprisingly fragile!

    In just a few months of owning an iPhone 7 I have had two of these adapters break when I accidentally dropped my phone.

    In both cases, the phone was fine--indeed, I have accidentally dropped it many, many times without having the screen break.

    In both cases, the metal part of the Lightening connector seems to have snapped off of whatever it was connected to inside the adapter. In both cases, the adapter immediately stopped working, and attempting to reseat the metal component only caused it to detach completely.

    So what? So you can't listen to music while coding for a day. So you can't listen to your favorite podcast on a long walk home. No big deal. But definitely deserving of a one-star review for a product that I have found to be both cheap and unreliable.

    Can't charge and use. Hopeless

    Needs a re-think. Easily lost, not compatible with other accessories, and cannot charge phone at same time as using to listen to music. Not good Apple.

    NO NO NO JUST NO!

    I tried to connect my headphones and the audio goes in and out. Also there seems to be a static noise. I have tried with multiple headphones including apple specific ones. Same problem. Highly disappointed.

    Apple Not Smart by Being Courageous

    Apple I am not sure if the thinking is right by you pretty much force people to purchase all apple branded products. I have tons of third party headphones that are wired and cannot work because whenever I listen to it the song sounds like their is a hiccup through out my entire library but when I use the apple branded headphones it works perfectly fine. Apple stick with what works. If it is not broken don't fix it.

    Garbage

    The adapter hole is too big for my Sennheiser earbuds. Doesn't hold the 3.5mm jack securely. This was clearly a strategic move to force buyers into using their inferior Apple earbuds which never stay in my ear securely. Hopefully they are listening and come up with a better solution than this cheesy adapter which is obviously an afterthought.

    Poorly made.

    My first thought when I got this adaptor was that I was going to lose it fairly quick.
    well, I've been using it for about a month now and it broke. When pulling the adaptor out of my iPhone The lightning connector side broke off inside the phone. I was able to to pull the broken piece out with needle nose pliers. But I wonder how apple would have handled it if it wasn't able to be pulled out.

    Horrible

    This thing is such a piece of trash. I hate it.
    It completely distorts the sound. Almost every song sounds terrible. Almost like parts of the song fade in and out. And there is NO BASS. There needs to be a better option.
    It is absolutely ridiculous to have to use two cords in order to plug your phone into a stereo system, headphones, or what ever you're using for music. But then for apple to come out with such a terrible adapter to make up for it makes this situation even more absurd. I hate this situation, I regret getting the iPhone 7.
    This adapter is unacceptable. It is a poor, unacceptable "solution" to taking out the headphone jack.

    Cheap stuff

    Thought it was okay at the start until it stopped working in less than a month. The cable (sucks) and you can either keep buying the cheap stuff ($1 on eBay) or invest in expensive AirPods or some other wireless earphones.
    As a poor uni student, the choice is blatant.
    Why didn't I just buy an iPhone 6??

    Fragile, easily lost, inconvenience

    Fragilely made, coupling with 3.5mm earphone is not tight enough, happened to run it onto to someon's bag and torn off from my phone, but the next moment i tried to plug my earphone back, the adapter is gone, not on the phone, not attached to the earphone!!!!! Don't know where has it flew to.
    I can still live with it even it doesn't support third party earphones. But given it's so easily missing and the hassles caused thereafter, I would seriously consider iP7 being the last iphone I use

    Lost

    I thought it worked pretty well until it somehow literally just disappeared a week after I got the phone. I searched everywhere for this little thing multiple times. I wanna buy a new one but I bet it would suddenly show up after I buy a new one.... I just wish this wasn't a thing

    This is what you get when you go too far

    Very low quality product, that trash didnt even keep up for a month of use, not even talking about the initial quality which was already sub-par. Even if apple lack of care to music has always been huge, this move is the worse I have seen. Take my iphone back, just bought a samsung!
    Cheers
