    3rd party mics, volume and music control do work

    Spoke with multiple phone reps and apple store employees. Tested myself and I can control my music, volume, and us the in line mic with no issues when using this adapter. I tested with 4 brands (beats, bose, skullcandy, and jvc).

    New but works great

    I have got a 7plus with bose soundtrue headphones. The inline mic works, it can turn the volume up and down. the sound is just as good as plugging the jack directly into my iphone 6 though the sound quality seems better on the 7plus all the way around. I don't know if it'll die quick. this is the one that came in the box with the phone but i'm pleased since I had read so many terrible reviews and fully expected to be disappointed. I only give 4 stars because needing an adapter is a bummer. :(

    Low Quality

    Poor design. I love my iPhone but I hate having to use this with my old headphones. It also seems to short out if my headphones are at the wrong angle. I want the headphone jack back!

    This lil Lightning-to-3.5mm adapter is worthless, used it one day and the next day it just didn't work!! No music on my Bose ear buds.

    Unacceptable for a company such as Apple. Gosh, was there any UAT at all????? come on apple you are better than this..

    Surprisingly terrible quality

    I'm ashamed to say I was a fervent defended of Apple's decision to remove the headphone jack. I use Bluetooth earphones at the gym and on my commute I'm happy to use a jack adapter. However on my first day with this thing I noticed how flimsy it is. Had to rescue it from my pocket after noticing how poorly it was coping with being at even a slight bend. Even when perfectly straight though it has almost zero robustness. I know Apple have a very specific design language but it's not out of the realms of possibility for them to start making stronger cables.

    I have no qualms with pushing people toward new technologies but if you're moving away from something so ubiquitous at least give them a structurally viable safety net.

    Ugly, barely functional

    Doesn't work with microphones, and has an ugly barbell design with swollen ends and a cheap, thin wire in the middle. The white looks unappealing and out of place connecting the black phone with my black headphones. At least it converts the sound. Can't wait till they improve the phone with a dedicated headphone jack that allows simultaneous charging and listening, obviating this monstrosity's use.

    I've been using this adaptor for about one month. I'm very gentile with my electronics and my typical use has been walking with my phone in my pocket with my headphones attached via the adaptor. The adaptor just broke and my mic cuts out during calls. When I first got my iPhone 7, one of the first things I noticed was how flimsy the adaptor was. Now, my impression has been confirmed: this adaptor is not designed to last. It's pure genius of apple to design something that will require constant (possibly monthly) replacements and for owners to shell out an additional $9.00 every month or so.

    What gives Apple? You used to have such great products and user experience... To say the least, I'm just sadly disappointed.

    Piece of garbage

    So much for loving iphones. This adapter came in the box and this is the first problem I have encountered. So I went for 1 run with this thing in my pocket the night before. I then in the morning go to plug the adapter back into my car because it only have aux connections and not blue tooth. To my surprise the adapter broke. It is now causing an extremely annoying high pitch squeal/ static sounds while playing music. Which did not happen last night or the other days. I did not change any settings and the aux cord in my car works perfect. When I wiggle the wire on the lightening to aux adapter the sound distortions get loader, so I know that's the issue. I will repeat this adapter has been in my car since I bought the phone. It broke after 1 "heavy" use, not sure if you can even call it heavy I went for a fricken run. I wasn't hanging from the dang thing. Well apple you are losing another life time costumer it seems. Been with you from the iPhone 3g but this is just garbage now, can't even listen to music.

    Cheaply Made So We Can Buy More Of It

    Had my phone for two months, listen to music with headphones every week or two weeks, already breaking. One thing I hate about this jack, along with the charging cable, is that the think wire is so cheaply made and so thin, it is bound to break sooner or later; therefore, makes customers buy it over and over again. With something so small, I highly doubt a wire is actually even needed, it can just be a solid plastic, like a y shape audio splitter adapter. Completely disappointed.

    I got my iPhone 3 months ago, and already the adapter that came with the phone has a short in it. I get that in order to make the iPhone water resistant apple had to get rid of the 3.5mm jack which is fine I guess but If that's the case it stinks that the adapter is not reliable. I'm annoyed I nave have to spend $9.00 + just to play music in my jeep again.

    Silly idea implemented badly

    The sound drop off when connecting a decent quality headphones using this adapter is very noticeable. Also it looks a little silly having a quality lead with this thing, 1/4 the width hanging from the end.

    I'm a real Apple nut, MacBook Pro and iPhone 7 plus etc... but come on Apple, what were you thinking???

    I just used my adapter for the first time with my Bose headphones yesterday. That cheap piece of trash that Apple calls an adapter made my headphones sound horrible. Dear Apple, I am making a promise to you now. This is the last time I'll purchase a product like the iPhone. Not that the iPhone is bad (I used to be one of your most diehard fans), but the decision to abandon the headphone jack without a high quality viable alternative was not courageous. It was boneheaded. And recently as a company Apple has been low on innovation and high on aggravation. Get it together.

    Does the job it's supposed too

    I have a pair of Panasonic buds with line in mic and remote that work with this adapter. Needs to be way cheaper than advertised.

    Poorly made, fragile, headphone controls don't work

    From why you need it, to the product itself - one fail.

    This is all so apple unlike. Makes me turn away as a very old fan!

    Hissing sound

    Awful. I got my phone 3 weeks ago and this thing started making a hissing noise every time I used it to play music in my car. I tried 3 different auxiliary cords and each made the sound. All 3 auxiliary cord worked perfectly with my iPhone 6 without any feedback problem. Don't waste your money.

    It almost makes me want to take my iPhone 7 Plus back

    I have Bose and Sony noise canceling headphone with a mic and they DO NOT WORK. Thanks Apple, I really appreciate you forcing me to buy YOUR wired headphone. I am sure they are much better than my Bose or Sony headphone

    Bad, just bad

    I've had my dongle for less than a month now and right at the beginning it didn't wok well, whenever the dongle move it would stop my music, now it just doesn't work, there's constant static in the headphones and they don't work. I'm also only using apple headphones with the dongle.
