    Epic Fail

    This is by far the worst design Apple has ever come up with!!!! I just had to have the newest iPhone (7s) when it came out.
    Don't loose the adapter because you can't listen to your Beats at the gym :( - longest workout ever
    Can't charge your phone and use your earbuds at the same time- call you back
    Can't adapt my phone to my car to listen to my tunes from my phone
    Can't use my Apple earbuds on my MacBook because I yep...lost the adapter

    I hope they fix this on the iPhone 8s

    Obnoxious Innovation

    I understand that Apple is trying to create a fully waterproof device and the greatest way to do it was by ridding the necessary headphone jack, and maybe not a lot of other people know that due to apple staying quiet, but this is ridiculous. It's so small and flimsy, and I keep losing track of it in my backpack. I have to pay 10 dollars everytime I need another one since headphones weren't built for iP7, and that is unnecessary agony. I'd rather have the headphone jack and risk destroying my phone in liquid than to constantly switch headphones from the one built for iPhone to normal headphones, because this is too much work.
    I give them 2 stars, because at least they tried to find a solution to their mistake.

    I have a nice pair of audio technica headphones, but it's frustrating to try to use them with the iPhone 7. The provided dongle is junk and broke. I had to buy a base to charge and play at the same time, hardly an ideal solution. Please bring back the 3.5 audio port.

    Terrible, short-sighted product

    Having been an Apple customer since 1994, I've seen some great things and very few not great things but the introduction of this dongle is boneheaded and reminds me of the dongle required to make a Newton work with a wired printer. The dongle is fragile, small and susceptible to loss, and is truly annoying, especially if you have invested in decent headphones. It is the one thing I hate about having bought an iPhone 7+.

    Great Product

    The whole product is amazing, but the one issue is I cant ever find it. I wish it had the feature like airpods to track it. I recommend buying one

    Astonishingly poor design, usability, and quality

    I've been an Apple fan for the last decade, but the iPhone 7 is doing a great job of fixing that. This cheaply made adapter lets me use my expensive 3.5mm headset, which I need as I spend much of the day on the phone. But of course there hasn't been an iPhone yet that could make more than a few hours of phone calls without being plugged in ... only ... this adapter gives you no way to charge and talk at the same time. So my phone has essentially become unusable as a phone except for a couple of hours each day. I have to carry the adapter with me everywhere I might want to use headphones, and if I lose the headphones with the adapter still attached to them (which I did today), it's not even like I can run out and grab a cheap set of replacement headphones. I need to go out and buy another adapter.

    Tim Cook called the removal of the headphone jack a "brave" thing that required courage. Tim Cook might be a fantastic logistics person and a gloriously skilled CEO, but he has no understanding of how people actually use his products.

    The worst piece of kit ever!

    If it wasn't enough stopping the use of other (decent quality) jack adapters at the last Iphone update , we find ourselves left with no choice but to buy the overpriced apple version. The sound quality is so terrible I've stopped bothering to use it in my car. If you're going to stop the use of other products on the market, at least provide us with a half decent bit of kit!
    Shame on you apple!!!

    A little flimsy, but works well and phone lasts all day streaming

    Using on iPhone 7 Plus. The cable could be a little thicker. At first, I thought I would have issues with not being able to charge while listening on my headphones. I stream Netflix/Hulu all day at work and with the brightness turned down to around 45%, I have no issues with battery life. Not sure why so many people have issues with not being able to charge while listening.

    Poorly made, had to replace it seven times

    I don't mind the removal of the headphone jack.

    But this dongle is so poorly made it keeps breaking after a few weeks of use. I'm on my 8th dongle now.

    My phone and my headphones are fine (I'm a computer scientist, I know my way around tech; plus Genius Bar checked it.). I use a Smart Battery Case that adds weight to the phone.

    I'm an extremely loyal Apple customer, I use Apple products extensively at my work and at home. This is by far the worst Apple product I have ever seen. I don't say that because I'm frustrated, I'm quite calm right now. It's just true.

    Worst Iphone for music lovers

    I heavily listening to the music from my iphone, and it works well with all music services apple provided. But IPHONE 7 is a disastrous for all misic lovers. Wired headphone generally has better qualities than wireless headphones i have, and now iphone 7 could use either this cheaply made fragile easily broken headphone adapter or use a wireless headphone. I had tolerated the inconvenience of adepter, but now it now randomly cut off my enjoyment by stopping or changing the song due to tiny little movements of the adapter cable. This is the worst, maybe i shouldnt use iphone anymore in the future.

    easy to lose

    The adapter is so small therefore so easy to lose! And I am not going to pay £9 for this small thing every time it goes missing!!!

    I own a media & audio business.

    Why did they have to do this! I have found myself in many traffic jams by not being able to plug in my phone to a master mixing board. I have several XLR to 3.5mm jack adaptors that I use with the following: PA speaker for cocktail hours, Mixing console, master house mix, and my sound system at home! Are you telling me I have to buy 5 adaptors????? Or constantly carry the same adaptor everywhere I go??? I need one for my truck, my house, and my mobile DJ applications, which include three separate locations! This is ridiculous. After this iPhone 7, I may have to switch to android products. I've been Apple my whole life. My business thrives on the MP3 audio structure including multimedia slideshows, reception playlists, cocktail hours for weddings, Wedding transition playlists, DJ applications, and large crowd performance events, both charity and for profit.

    Incredibly Frustrating

    Horrendous. I am so disappointed with this product, it cuts out with every pair of 3rd parts earphones I have used. Cheaply made. Very disappointing, and I am not about to drop $30 for new Apple earphones (mine broke within 2 months).

    C'mon, it works just fine

    I have two of these--one that came with my iPhone 7+ and one that I bought in an LAX airport vending machine, Apple OEM. After 6 months, they both work fine...in fact I swear the listening quality is improved over the old plug-in jack. Unless the most recent version is faulty for some other reason, I would buy the adapter again.

    Worst Ever = 0 stars

    Find a way to bring Jobs back, he would never have allowed you to put something like this in the market, it's affecting your reputation, needs a really quick fix. Btw, I've tried other similar solutions and, after working for a few minutes, a message of Non Supported hardware blocks the earplugs. Ridiculous!!!!!

    Garbage design.... Garbage Product from China (what a surprise!)

    The people in Silicone Valley must be on something or getting their heads polluted with CA smog... You people have got to be kidding... My adapter out of the box lasted maybe 1 hour then it quit and YOUR CABLE says "ACCESSORY NOT SUPPORTED"! I think Apple has reverted to buying their accessories off of Ebay and stuffing in the boxes. I have the 7Plus and if this is the best you can come up with, I can only imagine what will come out of Cupertino next.

    This cable/design is the poorest. I bet a high school kid could do something better than your $0.25 cable that sells for $9.00.. Overpriced as well!

    Get it fixed and put out something that works!

    Used a handful of times and now doesn't work. Why they would get rid of the Iphone jack is beyond me. Please bring it back

    Terrible. Absolutely terrible.

    No idea why Apple got rid of the headphone jack. I don't even understand the "speaker" to the left of the lightning port. It doesn't work. Is it a fake speaker? A microphone? Anyway, this little thing is incredibly easy to lose and/or break. Also, I can't charge my phone and listen to music at the same time. This is terrible for me because I'm in my car a lot of the time, I hate listening to the radio, and I do not have Bluetooth. Apple really missed the mark on this one.

    I'm Unhappy at this headphone adapter less than zero if I could

    We are so disappointed in apple and this product. When I say we I mean my 5 children and my wife. We currently own 4 iPhone 7 and 3 iPhone 6 +'s.The iPhone 7 headphone adapters are a complete disappointment . My kids have gone thought a total of 8 of these in less than 8 months. To make matters worse No Where has this headphone adapter in stock. As a parent I would have to replace maybe a set of earbuds for one of the kids a year maybe or take them in to apple under warranty. But whom has time to look all over town for this product. This headphone adapter is unacceptable and very surprising from Apple. My family have been apple fans we have over 10 apple products in our home. I have consider trading these phones in and going to another company.......I'm just so frustrated I don't know what to do ? someone please advise me . I am ashamed to even write this review since I myself have been such a fan myself showing off my apple products over the years.
    Apple if you want to contact us all our information and Icloud email is current and all the same
