    Barely used but broken already

    There is no physical defects with the adapter, and I only used this occasionally when my wireless headphones felt too heavy. I have never carelessly mistreated the product and yet it is doing nothing but giving crackling noises.

    It was absolutely ridiculous to get rid of the headphone jack first of all, but if apple is going to get rid of it the least you could do is to make sure that the product used to replace it is functional.

    Worst thing ever!

    This whole jackless thing for the iphones is ridiculous! Y'all should've waited till you perfected wireless technologies and introduce actually good bluetooth ear/headphones with mic capabilities and everything else. I bought this yesterday and it worked okay until it broke...Within the same day of purchase... I take care of my things but this thing was way too fragile. GET IT TOGETHER APPLE!!!!

    Terrible quality

    This adapter is not very well made. I am now on my third one; The other two adapters have failed on me. Luckily Apple will warranty them, and the customer experience is pretty good, but it is such a pain. I now carry a backup adapter on me. To top it off 3rd party adapters lead to a “not authorized” message and will not work. If anyone knows of some better made and supported adapters, please let me know. This is quite a disappointing Apple product.

    A Necessary* Evil.

    Pros: if you buy from Apple it will be compatible. Amazon knock offs are reportedly unusable.
    *this is only neccesary if you do not own Bluetooth headphones/ speakers.
    The sound quality is fine, never noticed it to be an issue.
    Some reviews say the mic/controls don't work for their headphones.
    I have had success with my main good pair which are Bose; the mic and controls function as normal. ~200$
    I have had success with my work pair which are skull candy; the mic and controls function as normal. ~20$

    Cons:
    This adapter is obnoxiously tiny.
    I have not lost my original adapter, but I have frequently misplaced it and I get nervous when taking it out of the house.
    The reviews describing the adapter as fragile are correct. I find myself babying the adapter whenever I use it and still I feel as though I am causing some small amount of unintentional damage just by touching it and plugging it in (gentle use slowly degrading the integrity over time.)
    My original adapter is still fully functional, however I do not use it daily. I have noticed the adapter has begun exhibiting a slight loss of rigidness. The wire also seems to be twisting slightly.

    Bottom line: Works fine for me. 9$ is steep for it's size, but if you NEED aux/headphone just buy the authentic Apple adapter.

    Wiring short

    There’s a short in the connection so I have to shell out $9 for a replacement. Will this happen repeatedly for the life of the phone?

    Terrible product

    Not a viable solution to the headphone jack. This broke within 6 months of use. Very disappointing.

    Trash product

    This adaptor is flimsy and breaks continuously with standard use with my phone in my pocket. The adaptor will move around an turn on random applications, pause and skip in music, audiobooks, and podcasts, and even shock your ears through the headphones. One of the worst ideas Apple has ever implemented.

    Absolute garbage

    Third adapter I’ve been through in the last 12 months. While I didn’t care that the headphone jack was removed from the iPhone 7 I do refuse to use Bluetooth headphones with inferior sound quality or pay for overpriced AirPods. The failure rate of this product is an obvious representation of Apples constant need to grab cash from its consumers and drive you to invest in expensive inferior technology. This cheaply made adapter does not last and is an insult to people who have invested in high quality headphones that are forced to constantly buy another cheaply designed product from a company swimming in cash who do not care for its customers.

    Does not work with microphones

    This does not work with third party microphones in headsets. Even big brands like Bose.

    Works as Described

    Works perfectly. I attached it to the old set of speakers I have in my home once, and now plug and play my iphone into them just as easily as before. Headphone jack is gone and I don't care at all. Loving the extra battery life and new taptic engine.

    Stupid idea. A $2 value for only $9.

    They are small and fragile and easily misplaced. I have purchased several to use with various connection cables including multiple headphones, speakers, and audio input cables for two cars. The ones I have purchased have functioned, but because they are tiny and get moved from one device to another, they are easily lost. Consequently, I haven't owned any of them long enough for them to break because they don't last long enough to get broken.
    At $9 each, they are way overpriced considering their penchant for disappearing when you need them. A much better solution would be for Apple to stick with the widely accepted 3.5mm audio jack for sound, and use whatever connector they see fit for powering and charging the phone or ipad. Stop limiting my choice of headphones, and overcharging me for multiple adapters because I can't use your poorly designed earbuds. Also, charging and listening to the iPhone at the same time is out of the question unless you want to buy additional hardware. Nice one, Apple.

    So disappointed

    I don't like using apple headphones at all. I want to use the ones I have which give me the best sound quality and this adapter broke after 3-4 months of use. It started pausing the music, canceling calls when I have headphones on with this adapter. Also, siri pops up in between which gets really annoying. This adapter takes the fun out of listening to music. Getting rid of the 3.5mm jack was a huge mistake. You cant even charge your phone and listen to the music at the same time. .I don't want to keep buying this useless adapter over and over. It also gets very dirty as it is white in color.

    Overall this makes me not want to use iphone anymore. If you're getting rid of something you should at least make sure you're giving us the best alternative possible to justify the decision. Very very disappointed.

    I'm not having problems with 3rd party mics or pause/play functionality

    Generic adapters have given me problems, but the Apple ones work with my various existing earbuds.

    Apple’s own product rejected by iPhone

    After a couple of uses, my phone rejected the adapter that came with the phone! It kept giving me the message that the accessory was not supported by my iPhone. Worse yet, its fragile and broke only after a few times trying to use it with my headphones. Seriously Apple, if your own products aren’t working, at least let us use third party devices. iPhones are overrated. Another reason to switch to Android.

    Works just fine

    I bought two not trusting much the bad reviews. It is working just fine either with Apple’s headset or Bose QC25. The volume control and the mic works for both headsets.

    Garbage!!

    Literally fell apart on first use. This is the adapter that came with my new iPhone eight. What a disappointment. Tried aftermarket adapters that were not compatible with my phone. I cannot use my six pairs of headphones with my new iPhone eight. What a shame!

    Too fragile.

    Knew that Apple taking away the headphone jack would be an issue, I still have my classic Beats that I listen to music on and this adapter started malfunctioning and making Siri randomly pop up and constantly stopping, pausing, and skipping my music. This is ridiculous I’m not the biggest fan of Bluetooth because sound quality isn’t the same as when it’s directly connected but i will not be constantly buying this piece so wireless headphones it is. SMH

    Complete fiasco

    After 1 month of regular use, it has now decided to play/pause, skip songs, speed up songs, cancel dials etc. It is already utterly Broken.
    The EarPods that came with the phone, works though... I guess that’s nice.. but then again, if they didn’t. I’d probably throw the phone in the bin.

    Headphones and adapter

    I own an iPhone 7plus and both headphones and jack adapter broke after 2 months I was using them. First they started to take over the controls of the headphones’ microphones and then one month later they were useless. Hope apple will fix this problem
