    Horrible

    This thing is a complete pile... The male end snapped off while it was in my bag. Unfortunately I highly doubt any 3rd party adapters are much better so I'll be forced to buy this again from Apple. Two thumbs down from this guy but judging by the reviews it seems like just about everyone has had an issue with this junk. I only wish I could give this zero stars.

    Truly terrible

    This adapter causes a metronome effect, whether anything is coming through the headphones and once sound of any sort is on, the volume fluctuates in time with the metronome. Extremely subpar effort by Apple in the design.

    Emblematic of Apple's Corrupt Path

    The simple fact of the matter is that there is enough room inside new iPhones for the standard audio jack, but this little piece of plastic is Apple's way of being aggressively anti-competition and anti-consumer. Cheaply made, unattractive, and most disgusting of all, unnecessary, this is a step back in technological cooperation and progress. Also, it's kind of the worst that you can't charge your phone and listen to music at the same time. Bigger phones with lamer features a bright future does not make.

    Rip off

    Have purchased no joke about 10 of these and only ever lasted at most 2 months.
    Fed up replacing them due an upgrade next month. Hello Samsung!
    Should be ashamed of yourself apple lost a loyal customer because of an accessory you can not be bothered to make last.
    Wouldn’t have gave you one star but had no choice to leave a review.

    Very cheap quality and easily broken

    I like Apple's top products. But this product is very fragile and just a garbage. I think Apple is making fun of customers.

I have already used all 4 adapter that have all broken plus have bought 2 additional adapter after the 4. ALL 6 DO NOT WORK ANY MORE. becaise of this issue and the amount of music that i listen to apple has officially lost a customer. I hope you consider this when buy a new iphone.

    Easy to lose

    Mine lasted 4 weeks; came with new iPhoneX; then, as is almost inevitable, I lost it; if I had held on to it longer I might have experienced the other negative issues with this little gizmo. I am keeping my old iPhone 5S (no cellular) to listen to music/audio; clumsy solution, but I am less likely to lose the old phone than this little gizmo. Disappointed with Apple; this would not have happened had Steve Jobs (RIP) still been alive.

    What happened to pride in quality?

    Seriously what is wrong with you? Apple’s quality has gone down so bad. No wonder people are going to Android.
    I’ve been a life long Appe customer, it’s sad to see this happen.

    For ef’s sake Apple!

    Skipping + pausing music and activating siri/voice control non-stop. Money wasted on new headphones. Time wasted on rebooting and resetting brand new iphone x. I can’t use my phone at all when the adapter is in. I regret not buying the iphone 6.

    Awful

    I rely on this piece and my third one just died. They’re flimsy and poorly made/designed. Apple should be embarrassed to print “designed by Apple in California” on them. I try to say at least one positive thing in all reviews but there really is t anything positive to say about this. I guess it works fine for up to two months. After that, it’s luck any day that it doesn’t break.

    Terrible - constantly comes out and stop music

    Any knock, jolt in my pocket stops the music. Have to constantly get my phone out of my pocket and start my music again.

    Awful!

    Just broke

    I have not had this adaptor for long and it no longer works at all! I, also, am worried about Apple's decisions that do not seem consumer oriented at all! My daughter dislikes her new MacBook pro and gets angry every time I mention the printing dongle. Now this headphone dongle breaks and I'm wondering about other companies as well... Apple used to have an edge and now it appears to be losing it...

    Very fragile and expensive

    Because they’re so fragile, and because now I require this adaptor all the time if I’m going to be able to use my nice Shure headphones (that I bought from the Apple Store), I feel like I need to order these by the six-pack. And since they’re $9, that’s $54 to be able to use what I used to be able to use for the price of my Shure headphones. The latest adaptor just broke, snapped like a twig, and I don’t have a backup, so now I’m facing having to order a new apadtor and wait for it to come before I can use my headphones. Apple should do right by its customers and both make these better quality AND less expensive, even if they have to take a loss on it. Otherwise they’re screwing people over by making their existing Apple store purchases obsolete. Which disincentivises me to buy anything else at the Apple store; they might just make my purchase obsolete with the next version, and then start charging me for an expensive and cheaply made adaptor.

    Surprise Apple needs to be even more exclusive.

    I have owned iPhones since I switched to smart phones years ago. I have always loved Apple because of how easy and simple they were to use. In the past year I have never contemplated switching to another type of phone and computer more. Today, after my 5s finally went to it’s grave I decided that I would be annoyed at myself if I switched so I stuck with Apple and went with the 7. Just now, to my surprise, I find out I need an adaptor to use my headphones?!?! What were they thinking?! I cannot think of one advantage to this regardless of the new technology. It is incredibly inconvenient, too expensive for something that will need to be replaced all of the time for the average person who doesn’t think about the one inch chord that they need to plug headphones in. Totally frustrating. This is the only thing that has brought me to even write a bad review in my life. I will be leaving the Apple family when this phone dies because apparently Apple is only for the elite that can afford to buy a million new adaptors and replace them when they get lost.

    Cheap & poor quality

    My iPhone is something I use constantly from work to leasure. The quality of this adapter is so poor I’m now on my 3rd one and it’s limiting my use of the phone on the go. Listening to music or doing call is now severely hampered. Spending hundreds on phones and headphones (non wireless) is useless if you’re going to be let down by a cheap piece of equipment like this. I hope a solution is found quickly.

    Terrible quality!

    I purchased an adapter only 2 months ago.
    It worked for a week and then now It take 10-15 minutes of fiddeling with the chord to get it to work.
    To connect it to my speakers it won’t work if the jack is all the way in, it has to sit almost in and you have to keep turning it until it works until it falls out and then start the process again..
    I thought it was my speaker chord so I tried it with regular headphones and have the same issue
    So disappointed
