    If I could rate it 0 stars I would

    I would be fine with having to use a headphone adapter if it actually worked and didn't break every two weeks. I have lost count of how many of these I have had to buy in the 9 months I have had my IPhone 7. I also have anxiety and music helps me calm down, but I haven't been able to listen to my music in a week. This is one of the worst choices Apple has made in my opinion.

    Easy to lose, expensive to replace. Shame on Apple.

    This item is so tiny. I lose it all the time and it is really stressful having to keep driving to the mall to order new pieces. I shouldn't have to pay $9 to connect my headphones into the phone that cost $800. I've already lost 2, and i'm going back for a third one. Sad that they are gouging for every dollar they can get.

    What a dissapointment from Apple

    Very, very, very bad idea to discontinue 3,5mm jack. It seems that Apple superiority died with Steve Jobs. I even do not use my AEG headphones any more, it is too complicated.

    Something bad is going on with Apple design & products. I do not use iPhone 7 as a music device any more. I dont remember when I had used Maps (rubbish compared to Google Maps). I dont use Photos on my iMac (I store pics in folders, as used to do it twenty years ago. Why I can not downsize images on my iPhone, why I cannot add tag or note on my pics?
    If you know that iPhone has battery issue, why dont you make energy profiles (or put edge/3G/4G, location On/Off switches on swipe screen?)

    I have spent a fortune on Apple products in past, but I will think twice before buying it again.
    Apple guys, you have to work harder!!!

    Like everyone else has said

    I've had to replace my earbuds 3 times now because they keep breaking. I'm not doing crazy stunts with the cord or anything, just going on a morning jog and wearing them when i walk between classes, and the stupid things last between a month and two before they start breaking down. Why did they change the jack if this product is so bad? Why didn't this appear in trials? Who uses their iPhone speakers that often anyway that they thought it would be a good idea to switch to this? If it isn't fixed by the time I need my next phone I'm switching to an Android or something because this isn't worth the hassle (or the expense) Get it together, Apple.

    Doesn't work properly after having it for 10 months and using only in my car? Thanks Apple.

    it works well with Apple Earpods

    The mic and volume control work just fine with Apple Earpods with the traditional mic jack.
    I also use it with all of my headphones (Bose QC 25, lots of earbuds, Sony cans, etc.) and they all sound great.

    I wish I could rate 0

    I own a high end pocket amplifier and a high end in-ear earphones and used an app that allowed me to listen to FLAC quality music to go with it. I used to get excetional sound out of my iPhone 5 with this rig. Oh, up until I bought my self a new iPhone 7 that requires this adapter. The sound quality dipped all the way down... If your an audiophile with a decent rig and crave for quality sound, Apple iPhone 7 is no longer an option that responds to your requests. So ironic for a brand that merged walkmans and mobile phones...

    Worst product ever

    Honestly this headphone jack, is absolute garbage. I'm not buying a iPhone again ever. This is so horrible, I can't even charge my phone when necessary and add to that, the headphone jack, breaks every month. They were not built to last and that's obvious. I don't understand the logic in designing no headphone jack to be completely honest, but if it was to force customers to continually pump use money I guess it worked.

    Awful Quality. Most recent one failed after 8 days.

    Build quality on these is appealing. The one that came with my iPhone 7 worked for about 7 months before failing. I purchased a replacement that worked for 6 weeks before failing. Next one was 3 weeks before failing. My most recent one died today, 8 days after I purchased it and I have only actually used it on 5 of those days. I don't live in a country with extreme weather, I treat the adapters carefully, I have no choice but to get another one which will no doubt fail after a few weeks and at £9 each now, these are not cheap. For the first time since I jumped aboard the iPhone with the 3G am I seriously considering changing to another phone company.

    Absolute garbage.

    It will start to fall apart within a few weeks. Complete failure will happen in about 4 months. I've already gone through two of them. The wires fail on the side closest to the phone.

    Works as Advertised

    Not sure why others have had problems with their headphones, but I've used this adapter with Sennheiser headphones and their in-line microphones. All work perfectly, including volume, pause, song advance, and telephone calls! Worked fine on iPhone 7, iPhone 6, and iPads (from old to latest versions). Not sure about durability because I haven't had it very long. But, for now, this rates 5 Stars.

    Poor quality

    Bought my iPhone 7 in January and used this dongle to listen to music on my commute every day. Unfortunately it began to deteriorate after 6 months and no longer works. Poorly built device.

    Furthermore, it hinders the whole iPhone experience - it's not possible to charge the phone and listen to music simultaenously. It is also very easy to lose/break/forget this thing.

    I can see that Apple is gearing towards the wireless future, and that is great. However this bridge is too fragile to ensure a smooth transition.

    Terrible quality

    I've been an apple Fanboy for a while now. I've owned the 4S, 5S, 6 Plus and you guessed it, the 7 Plus.

    The loss of the headphone jack is the single greatest mistake Apple have made, in my opinion. I don't want Blue tooth headphones, I'm not a 12 year old D.J. who walks around with a massive headset draped around my neck in the middle of the day. Similarly, I'm a human being who can't hold onto electric tooth brush heads (Apple blue tooth headphones) with any kind of reliability, so I quite like having a normal pair of cheap headphones.

    Sure, I can get over not being able to charge my phone and listen to music/watch videos at the same time, although I don't think it's a choice I should be forced to make with one of the most expensive phones ever made...

    But what I can't stand is the terrible quality and ugliness of this adaptor. These things last, at best, 3 months with moderate use, they are ugly and do nothing other than diminish the sound quality.

    If you're reading this I assume you've made the poor life choice of buying an Iphone 7 and your headphone adaptor has stopped working. Don't buy this, buy a knock off version online.

    Cheap as bro!

    wrong on so many levels! poor quality sound, inconvenient and very poorly made, which seems like a cash grab because there is no reason it couldn't have been built more robustly , except that wouldn't keep them money rolling in for replacements. over priced and over it!

    Doesn't last

    I've had two of these, and with both, I've lost one channel after 2 or 3 months. I wouldn't mind paying more for one that was more durable. Now I have to decide whether to buy another of the same, buy a few of the cheap knock-offs, or convert to airbuds. I just hate to retire my two Bose sets (headphones and sports earbuds) which still work flawlessly.

    Worst change of any phone ever! Audio quality is terrible!

    I used to plug into large stereo systems, high fidelity is totally lost with this adaptor!!
    Lack of charging and plugging into stereo, car, headphones, ect is totally lost.

    Does apple expect me to not use my iPhone on my 4-6hr flight so when I arrive still have battery can to call an uber?
    Apple expects my 8 hr workday to not involve listening to headphones then going out with friends?

    So apple thinks making me plan my charging and audio jack usage and keeping adaptors in my pocket at all times is
    Last iPhone I buy!!! Stupid stupid stupid stupid!

    Destroyed 1 and lost 2 so far!!

    Flimsy, doesn't work

    If I could give it 0 stars I would. It is a flimsy, poorly made piece that doesn't even hold the jack adapter securely. Shoddy workmanship. You would think Apple could come up with a better device than this thing.

    Worst thing Apple have done - Wish I could give Zero stars

    I've gone through 4 of these ridiculous pieces of rubbish. They're as much use as a chocolate teapot. No idea why we have to put up with this junk and the shoddy build quality. I've had every iPhone since the 3G as well as 4 iPads and countless Macs (since 1994) but am sorely tempted to jack in the iPhone and try Android. I use expensive, good quality headphones with a cable and Jack plug. I do not want to use Bluetooth. And as for the wireless Beats headphones that they obviously expect us to buy don't bother. They are TOTAL JUNK and fail on first charge.

    Apple! Get back to doing proper things properly. Stop forcing us to buy your rubbish, ill conceived, poorly designed, woefully manufactured trash.

    Now get on with it.
