    Broke after 3 months

    Used it almost every day, worked great. One day decides to stop working so I don't hear anything when using it. No visible damage to outside of cable.

    I got these with my iPhone X about 2 weeks ago and it has already broken: my music constantly cuts out or stops playing or switches song or changes volume, its to aggravating and unless i dont move my phone at all then the problems keep happening. The music pretty much only works in one ear now but the earphones work fine when I am using my iPad! I have been forced to buy the earphones with the lighting jack as I don't want to spend another penny on an adaptor. I strongly recommend doing the same and purchasing earphones that fit the lighting jack as even with the adapter you can't use the microphone!

    I’ve had my adapter for two or three months & it distorts what I listen to. I have to bend the wire in a particular spot so the sound goes back to normal. Really annoying. I don’t want to bother paying for another one since everyone here is having the same issues.

    The fact that these are basically consumables is ridiculous. I have to buy about 4 of these per year for my kid and he babies them because he knows how fragile they are. He is particular about his headphones so I just keep being a chump and buy them as if they are a consumable. I would gladly pay double for a sturdy one that would last!

    This product is very cheaply made. If Apple could bring back the headphone jack, That would be great. Most people can’t afford half of your devices, or cannot afford expensive blue tooth headphones for an already expensive phone. It cost more for less, and I absolutely hate the quality of your earpods, and cannot afford blue tooth headphones of good quality. I would appreciate if you’d get your stuff together. Thank you.

    Terrible - Apple you can do better

    • Written by Tammie P from Walnut Creek

    It's so insane that apple did not come up with a decent adapter. I can't listen to my Bose wired headset or any of my apple 3.5mm. Makes me regret buying and apple phone. I'm due for a new phone and am not considering other brands. Step it up apple. You used to be the leader in the tech world but starting to slip. You can do better.

    Terrible idea.

    • Written by Gary T from Cincinnati

    I'm on my second set of these adapters and they still don't work on my XR. The first one didn't work at all the second one puts the volume at max then stops working. Come on Apple, bring back the headphone jack. It seems this company has created a culture of adapters from their phones to their laptops to get them to interface with 95% of the real world. I was on the fence when I upgraded and decided to stay with iPhone and got the XR. One of the reasons I was considering ditching the iPhone was the headphone jack and the camera. Samsung has Apple beat on the camera. In any case since all my computers are Macs, I stayed with iPhone. This adapter wrangling that this company has created around their products makes me re-think if my next phone will be an iPhone.

    Love it, works great!

    • Written by Mike L from Bainbridge Island

    Apple delivered it quickly, 2 days!

    I use earbuds often, and they get a beating, so I trash them regularly. I have a collection of donated earbuds from friends that won't use them, as replacing them from Apple costs $29.95. These are, of course, mostly old-style phone plug.

    I'm using this adapter so as to continue using up those old earbuds.

    All functionality is maintained; click to pause, double-click/triple-click, volume up/down and microphone.

    Love it!

    A complete disappointment

    • Written by Oscar G from Monterrey

    With all due respect, this product is an absolute joke. This is the third time a headphone jack adapter fails to work for me. The third time! I can´t believe Apple keeps on selling this unhelpful, low-quality, and cheap adapter. It lasts for a couple of months and no more than that, at least in my case. I have always been a fan of Apple products, but I am very disappointed at this particular product and I find no motivation to buy another one or an iPhone that requires it. Shameful and disappointing.

    Have to buy a third one of these, cause my last 2 stopped working

    • Written by Pierce W from Woodbury

    My first one had issues after a while where the buttons on my headphones weren't working, so I got a second one. Now the second one is randomly cutting out. Both were from Apple boxes at Verison store, so I'm confident they are from Apple. Since this is the second time they broke within a year with no visible signs of damage, I tried looking for one that was more durable. The problem is that 3rd party adapters are all not MFI certified, so there's no guarantee that the OS will even allow them to work... I would honestly pay more money for one that's less fragile, but until then I must give this 1 star.

    This headphone jack adaptor works great to convert normal style headphone jacks to the new lightning style plug. No problems, works beautifully.

    After roughly 5 hours of use over a month the connection is beginning to cut out. If I bend over with my phone in my pocket the volume either begins to lower or the connection cuts out. The wire and casing is extremely thin and cheap. I'm surprised Apple would put their name on something like this.

    Have to buy one every month useless garbage

    • Written by Charles A from Atlanta

    These consistently start distorting audio after a month.. I have bought at least 10 in the last year but don’t want to get rid of very expensive headphones that don’t have lightning.

    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

    An expensive inconvenience

    • Written by Peter V from Columbia

    While $10 isn’t that bad of a price, I still don’t want to to pay that much for something so inconvenient. It is very annoying that you can’t do with just one. You have to have one for your headphones, one for your car, and maybe a few more for other uses and it adds up to a collection I can’t keep track of. While I’ve never had one break on me (yet) I’m still not going to give it a good score. I miss my headphone jack.

    annoying af haha

    • Written by Julie K from Esbjerg

    I am so irritated by the fact that every month i either have to buy a new adapter or new earphones, i mean when u purchase things like this, you dont expect that you need to go get another one after one month only, no it should last for a long time, and its so expensive. so get yo s*it together, and fix the problem.
