    Hello Samsung.....

    Upgraded both kid's phones (i7 and i8) and this "No Aux Jack" brilliant idea from Apple is the final straw in our long Apple life. Kids love their corded headphones and I'm not going to replace them with the expensive wireless ones that are so tiny they'll inevitably disappear quickly. So I bought a few of these adapters from the Apple Store and they eventually get lost, have audio issues (plugging into Aux jacks in the car, etc), or just stop working all together. Unless this is some grand scheme by Apple to put then back into the iPhone XI, and charge $1500 for it because everyone wants their jack back!! Well, too late - our next phones will be Samsung. This has got to be the worst idea Apple has ever had!!!!

    Massive Design Flaw

    I'm extremely disappointed with Apple's decision to lose the auxiliary (AUX) port. If apple expect everyone to own wireless headphones why do they not include their own EarPods with each iPhone??? It's completely absurd how they don't expect anyone charging their phone to want to listen to music at the same time. At least include a few lightning to headphone adaptors with each phone...

    Headphone Jack Adapter and other adapters

    Apple has really dropped the ball on this entire setup. These adapters should be $2.00 and readily available to the masses. This is not just about headphones, but rather plugging into auxiliary for stereos and vehicles, needing to charge while listening to music, using perfectly good headphones with a traditional jack. Growing tired of Apple's forced obsolescence as I type on a new Macbook Pro that I cannot plug anything into without more stupid adapters...I'd like to point out that they put a traditional headphone jack on these new laptops. ALL the other plugs are USB-C, including the charger. So we stepped back to a plug type charger, if you trip over the cord it is not a magnetic breakaway. Unimpressed, lacks vision and is designed to make the consumer buy more accessories. This is not about function or innovation, just consumerism.

    Great Product

    Ignore all the false reviews. This adapter has proven easier to use than most plug in headphones I use. Everyone else is doing it anyways, and usb c headphones are very unreliable and scarce. Apples lighting connector was specifically designed to be a media transporter, making it much easier and more fluid to use than many headphone jack devices.

    I'VE HAD MY PHONE FOR MAYBE A YEAR OR TWO, AND HAVE GONE THROUGH SO MANY OF THESE THINGS. THEY ARE SO FRAGILE THAT I DONT KNOW WHAT IS CAUSING THEM TO SHORT OUT. I CANT KEEP PAYING 10 DOLLARS FOR A NEW ONE EVERY MONTH OR TWO. PLEASE APPLE GO BACK TO REGULAR JACKS OR ILL JUST DOWNGRADE MY PHONE OR GO TO ANOTHER COMPANY FOR MY PHONE.

    This format needs to change

    I'm on my 4th one and I am getting pretty irritated. Audio quality is par at best and the wire is the issue of the audio cutting out. Forgive my ignorance but is it possible to make it a peg instead of 2 separate pieces of plastic? If it were a peg, meaning just one piece of plastic, a lot of the issues that people face would be cut out. However that won't solve the issue of people trying to use it in their cars and what not. Sad!

    Horrible and expensive

    It worked for like 5 minutes and then started to play out of the actual speakers in the middle of class and it was so embarrassing. I don’t recommend at all.

    Don't bother

    I lost my first adapter just after a couple of weeks after i purchased my iphone 7, that was obviously my fault so i decided to purchase a new jack adapter directly from Apple as i didn't want to buy cheap third party one...well long story short it broke within a couple of months. So please don't bother spending your money on something so useless.

    Terrible Invention

    It’s only good while it lasts, this is a useless item, and Apple should return to the original jack option. I have had to buy multiple adapter pieces, and afte a few months, they just stoped worinf. Terrible ivention.

    Go back to the old format

    The sound quality is not as good. And they are easily misplaced. This change is enough to make me want to switch from Apple for future phones.

    Apple are a disgrace

    I moved from the iPhone 6S to the iPhone X in December and so it's my first experience of this adapter. I'm well entitled to review this particular item as I've had to buy two of these individual adapters already in just three months since having the phone. Apple is an utter disgrace for the standard of this cable. I've gone through 3 in 3 months and it should be an embarrassment to Apple that I've got to keep buying this rubbish after paying £1200 for a phone. Have they got any shame? And if it's a tactic to make people use ear pods or buy overpriced Bluetooth Beats headphones, it's even more of an embarrassment, neither is a good enough audio standard, this junk is apparently the only way I can use expensive RHA earphones and their Apple approved controls with an iPhone. This is it for me with Apple. They've had enough time to do something about this.

    Never works!

    Came with my iPhone 7 Plus and have never been able to get it to work, plug it in and it doesn't recognise headphones have been attached and music / sound will only play through the phone speakers, rubbish!

    Works Great

    People are drama llamas when it comes to the headphone jack for some reason. In the rare times I do need to use an AUX cord, this adapter works great every time. It's pretty durable too.

    Rip off / Buy the 6 if you wear headphones

    I just bought the 5th and 6th adapter for my 7 plus. None by the way have been lost, they just stop working. Wouldn’t you know, they actually found a way to block third party cheaper versions. I will be moving on from iPhone immediately after this phone is paid off. But since I spend $100 a year replacing headphone cords, add a few more months of disappointment. Wish I could give zero or negative stars.

    The quality of this product can be described by one word - ridiculous

    I am very upset by the quality of this product. The adapter is extremely flimsy and disconnects very easily from the earbuds... shouldn't the adapter fit snugly, especially if it is supposed to be compatible with Apple's own earbuds? The fact that the adapter detaches so easily makes them so easy to lose. I just bought a brand new iPhone, spent a lot of money on it, and the fact that even this simple accessory does not work properly is utterly ridiculous. As a customer and an owner of an iPhone, who uses earbuds to listen to various types of audio I am forced to use the adapter for my phone. So does this mean every time I lose it or it becomes dysfunctional I have to pay an additional 10 dollars? Even when the adapter is plugged in, often times the audio breaks up or the phone does not recognize the external device, thus, causing the music or audio to play aloud. This may seem like a minor issue, but in the long run it does become a major inconvenience for customers like myself. I am frequent user of audio, and this issue somehow needs to be resolved... A high quality phone calls for a quality adapter

    Enter the two-week replacement cycle.

    Ohh, Apple, it is to you I extend my deepest gratitude of replacing this two-week old dongle under my Apple Care Protection plan, for without this plan, I fear I would have only had two weeks of fine audio. And to the lackadaisical and incoherent customer service representative, many thanks fine sir! Buy a pair of 'Beats' you say! Fashionable and cool with wireless sound you say! Ohh, Apple.. the hubris!

    Apple quality continues to plummet

    Against all advice my wife and I both bought new iphone 8's. No headphone jack, but we'll get by with the adapter. Ha. We've been doing extensive testing for over a month with no less than eleven unique headset models. It's amazing how unreliable the adapter is. On one headset you can only listen to music, but not take calls. On another you can take calls, but it cuts to phone speaker after a few minutes. The random behaviors keep going. It's not acceptable and we've both ordered new S9's to replace our apple phones. Apple... we won't be back. Wise up. Thumbprint worked great! Why go to face recognition (which is less reliable)? And why not have bluetooth AND a headphone jack? For your dramatic prices, one would think you'd provide better product than the competition. And two years ago... you did. But no more...

    This thing is absolute garbage

    Sound cuts off constantly. Have had to replace many times. Worst idea ever.
