    Works for me.

    This jack adapter worked fine with my "sleep time" headphones. Until I lost it. I bought what I thought were "apple" brand adapters, but after my excitement getting them, great disappointment that they don't work. So, it is either switch to Bluetooth (which doesn't work well at night) or buy an authorized one. Apple, couldn't you at least lower the price to $5? The headphones that came with my new phone are not comfortable and fall out all the time.

    Exactly as advertised.

    This adapter does exactly what it's supposed to do.

    99% of these reviews have actually nothing to do with the product, but are leaving 1 star reviews because they disagree with Apple removing the headphone jack, or they lost this adapter (yeah seriously, you attack a product because of your own carelessness?), or some other such nonsense. What a bunch of children. The headphone jack was developed in the 1800s. It's absolutely ancient, and its the right call for Apple to finally remove this jack and try to move things forward, same as what they've done with all ports that are now considered obsolete. What also amazes me is people who bought the iPhone then pretend to be surprised about the lack of a headphone jack, and accuse Apple of destroying their business or making their lives inconvenient because they "rely on" this jack. Newsflash, Apple also still sells the iPhone SE, 6S, and 6S+. Nobody FORCED you to buy the iPhone 7, especially if a headphone jack is such a big deal to you. Instead of doing your research and buying the best product for your needs, you blindly make a purchase just so that you can whine like babies afterwards.

    best adaptor on the market

    I have bought several adaptors from different places and all the third party adaptors either don't work right off the gate, or stop working after a few days. Their build quality is inferior to the Apple one as well.

    It is the only adaptor I have found to date that will work well with my existing 3.5mm jack headphones (from Apple).

    I am not happy my iPhone 7 has only one place to both charge and listen to music, but I'm stuck with this configuration for the latest phone. Maybe they will find a better solution for iPhone 8. I will not get the much pricier Bluetooth earphones either.

    I do however agree with most of the bad reviews in terms of third party accessories. I use my phone for interviews and none of my third party speakers, mics, ear pieces, work with the adaptor.

    I gave this product a high rating because it does a simple thing and lets me use 3.5mm headphones made by Apple, something that none of the 4 other accessories I bought can reliable do.

    What a terrible design choice! Infuriating!!!!

    Apple - you have made such a mess here. In removing the headphone jack socket you create two issues - we now can't charge our phones AND listen - and then you give us something so small its incredibly easily lost. I run a theatre school. I use my phone as my music player. I want to connect to my BOSE docks. If I do - I can't use my phone all day as it runs out of charge. ALL FOR A FEW MILLIMETRES SHAVED OFF THE DEPTH OF A PHONE. Let's get a life, guys!!! And you are hearing this from someone who has nearly every product you sell and sings your praises. But you have really lost me.... Design stupidity of the highest kind. If this was a 16 year olds design technology project you would be pointing out the flaws and telling them to start again. You are supposed to make life easy Apple. Not more UNNECESSARILY complicated. I am furious. Look at all these appalling reviews!!! Not Big. Not clever.

    Dunno

    I wish I could review this but I lost it pretty much as soon as I got my iPhone. Now, having read everybody else's reviews, I can see I'm not really missing anything and I probably don't need to buy a replacement. I'm just stuck with the earbuds that came with the phone. Eh.

    I wish I had a third hand.

    This is painful. When I am carrying my iPhone and I want to plug my headphones into this thing its so wobbly and hard to get in I feel like I need another hand to make sure I don't drop my phone in the process.

    Faulty from the outset

    Mine came with my iPhone 7. I use it in the car. It was faulty almost from the word go and needs to be manipulated to work properly and cuts out regularly. Looking at the overwhelmingly negative reviews here it seems like there is a design fault. I was going to order another one but will be looking to see if anyone else (such as Belkin) makes one instead.

    Needs to be less expensive

    Absolutely a pain that non-Apple adapters do not work. Instead of $3 on Amazon I now have to pay $9.... I guess I'll just switch to an android phone

    Worst design by apple

    My iPhone is useless when it comes to playing any type of music. Every time i connect an aux cable in my car, i get an error message "unauthorized audio device" after playing music for 5 min. I can hook it up to any headphones, speakers, or any audio devices. Everyone else i talk to also complains.

    I tried to buy an adapter on amazon / ebay to charge my phone / plug in an aux cable and none of them work!!!

    Apple really screwed up this phone. I paid $1400 for my iPhone 7 plus 128 GB and i cant even use it in my mercedes / half the audio devices i have.

    APPLE: please come up with a 2 in 1 adapter where i can plug in an aux cable and charge my phone at the same time!!!!!

    Total Crapola

    Apple products are supposed to feel substantial. This feels like a piece of junk bit of cable you get at 7/11 when you forget your real one at home.

    TERRIBLE SOLUTION to A NON PROBLEM CREATED BY APPLE

    I use my iphone for everything. Isn't that what apple wants. Why then do you constantly ruin it for me? I keep a cheap pair of headphones at my work, now I need an adapter for that. And my really cheap headphones didn't seem to be supported. What? They aren't supported? I need the adapter for the car so I had to get one for there, because you no longer let my iphone/ipod work in my CTS. Again, who are you upgrading your products for. I am not going to buy a new car just because APPLE feels like making another product. Come on. And I don't like having a stupid tail coming off of my iphone. Steve must be rolling over on this one. Poor quality, bad idea and not well thought out. And PLEASE don't suggest I get airbuds. People use headphones. Simple, easy! Stop trying to be so above technology. You're actually holding us down now. Go back to an audio port. It was right there no mess no fuss. I may switch to a samsung if you keep messing with the phone and if they can keep from exploding. Technology FAIL APPLE!

    Terrible quality for the price

    I bought the iPhone 7 in the full knowledge I'd have to use an adaptor. It's mildly annoying, but the phone is great, so fine. I accept that. But the adaptor is one of the most poorly built cables I have ever had the displeasure to own. Currently, after about 6 months of ownership, I am on my fifth cable. Not lost, just worn out. I do use earphones more than the average person does (probably 8-10 hours/day), but in that same period I haven't had to replace the cable on my earphones once. As best I can tell they fail where the cables connect to the er... connectors, which shouldn't be that hard a problem to solve. And these are £10 each - obviously can be replaced on guarantee, but after 5 it starts to look a bit weird. And is annoying.

    Loss of the headphone jack, jacks with my job

    I am a dance teacher and we all use our iPhones to play music on our sound system. The fact that the new iPhone 7 not having a headphone jack has caused us many a headache. Our sound system is a professional system and does not have bluetooth therefore we cannot connect our phones that way. Not only has it been an inconvenience and a head ache but I have now lost my adapter because of the frequent use at the studio (not sure where it went). Why??? Not everyone uses Bluetooth technology and we are not going to update our sound systems that we paid thousands for to be compatible with the iPhone 7. Oh, and you can't find them in stores either. Always sold out...hmmmm, I wonder why??

    noisy!

    needed to use iPhone for live gig sounds alongside iPad. the output from this is too noisy to use when the analog out of iPad is pristine. nearly useless except for non-critical headphone use

    Another thing to lose track of

    I love my iPhone 7 Plus . . . except for now I have to carry a dongle to use my headphones. Every pair that I have purchased over the past few decades are now obsolete? I don't think so.

    I am extremely disappointed in the "courageous" decision to remove the headphone jack and require me to remember where I put my dongle.

    Say Goodbye to Cheap Headphones

    I have an IPhone 7 now and oh how I miss the days of grabbing whatever pair of headphones to listen in the car or to go run with.
    I used to buy a bunch of the $7 head phones to have around the house, because they always get lost and you can never find them when you need them. Now with the iPhone 7 the cheapest pair are about $30 and extra dongles are $10 each that usually end up breaking and getting lost even easier. Whoever thought of getting rid of the headphone jack doesn't have a normal family that loses headphones all the time. We have gone from listening to music all the time to now not being able to because we couldn't fine a stinking dongle or their one pair of headphones. Thanks A Lot Rachel! Thanks A Lot! I hope your happy, because I've told mom.

    Stop Complaining and Being Cheap

    The quality and price of the adapter is great. I use it in my car since it is an older model and doesn't have Bluetooth. I can't understand why people are complaining about the removal of the headphone jack except that these people are just cheap and don't want to change with the times. Just about everyone uses Bluetooth headphones now so if you don't like the adapter buy Bluetooth headphones it's not that big of a deal and they make Bluetooth headphones that are even audio production quality so audio quality isn't an issue.

    Not fit for the purpose

    I have a relatively expensive pair of wired headphones, so I don't wish to replace them. Consequently I need these adapters to listen to music on my phone. On average, the adapters are lasting around 2-3 months before failing. I am not treating them in any way out of the ordinary, leading me to conclude that the build quality is severely lacking. The cable itself is exceptionally thin, and I suspect that this is the cause of all my problems.
