    Flimsy junk

    Brand new iPhone 8, headphone adapter totally busted in 1 month of daily use commuting on the train. The thing is, its so obviously flimsy that of course it broke. They probably could have simply omitted the little length of wire and it would be 100 times more robust. Just a terrible, terrible piece of hardware that has thoroughly devalued my otherwise pretty nice phone.

    Cheaply made

    Lasted 5 months before it stopped working. POS for a 9 dollar adapter.

    Works for me

    I use Bose active sport ear buds with inline mic and all functionality of my ear buds is intact. Just wish they would leave the 3.5 mic on the phone, I rarely use my speaker phone and so having a larger speaker phone is simply useless for me.

    Only worked for a bit

    The adapter came with the purchase of my iPhone 8. I’ve only been using it for a short amount of time and the connection between my headphones and the phone is terrible. It’ll cut in and out, if it gets moved a certain way it’ll pause my music because it doesn’t think headphones are connected. I’ve tried unplugging it from my phone and the headphones and re-plugging it in, sometimes that works but now not as much, it feels like the wiring might already be going. Hoping i’m not going to have to buy one of these every few months just to use other headphones.

    The Apple release that released me from Apple

    Because of this, I'm trading my iPhone 8+ for a HD player and have cancelled my Apple Music trial.

    It made listening to music a trial in itself.

    It sends random signals: stop, start, forward a track, stop, start, stop, start, stop, start, forward another track, jump back four tracks, stop, start... all within three seconds.

    This isn't a headphone adapter, it's a series of random, audio panic attacks that will turn your brain into a Cubist nightmare.

    By far the worst thing about iPhones

    The lightning port adapter is just rubbish. I am on the third one in a year, because they are so utterly flimsy. Why couldn’t they be make with a protective wire coil? It’s such a poor piece of design and build, and as I can’t find a better one I guess my next phone is a Galaxy. If I could rate it as zero stars I would.

    Such an inconvenience!

    Apple does stuff well and not well. This is not well. VERY inconvenient.

    Absolute thievery

    I’ve had this for a month and it’s already broken. I was gifted a 7, otherwise I would’ve avoided the latest gen for this very reason. This company thinks they’ll never lose their customer base, but this certainly has me considering alternatives.

    Frustrating

    I didn't think about the headphone jack when I got my iPhone 8, and I was worried when I realized that there was none. Still, I thought it would probably be fine. It's not. When I put my phone in my pocket, 2 out of three times when I start walking or riding my bike, the sound stops as if I yanked out the headphones. This is a brand new phone by the way. Also there is a constant scratching sound in the right ear of my headphone if I move. Last, I used to watch something or listen to music in bed while charging my phone using my over-the-ear headphones. This is no longer possible—you can't charge the phone and have wired headphones plugged in at the same time which is just dumb. I wish I could go back to the 6S.

    Cheaper and More Reliable than Amazon

    Everybody knows we all hate the dongle, but it's a necessity. When mine broke, I searched on Amazon first, but Iphone 7 and up are not supported by any available dongle on Amazon. The available dongles are shifty (like all 3rd party spellings are) and I really didn't want to mess with it.
    Instead I ordered another adapter off Apple.com. The shipping is free (THE SHIPPING IS FREE), it arrived in two days straight to my door in a small, secure package, and $9 is actually less than most offers on other websites. You can even be assured it'll work because it's from a reliable source! No downside-it is the best deal and exactly as advertised.

    Zero stars

    This adapter is interfering (adversely) with sound quality. So if you have a >$100 earphones expect them to sound like some cheap 10$ earphones.

    What a negative change

    Worst product ever

    Cheap horrible product by apple. What else can I say? This is my 5th time buying a adapter for my phone. This product is a money scam

    Accessory Not supported

    I have a iPhone 7 plus and recently my lightning earphones got damaged so I started using the adapter which was provided in the box and for every 2 min the audio stops playing from the headphones and pops a message that This accessory is no longer supported by iPhone. I tried it with almost 6 earphones and the result was same

    This makes me regret getting an iPhone 7.

    I knew I should have gotten the SE or a 6. My 2nd dongle/adapter JUST broke, and I DO NOT want to get another one. Everyone talks about how good of a phone I have, but this phone is terrible. There is no headphone jack, so I have to use this piece of garbage. I’m about ready to start using my old 5c that I still have because of this thing.

    Insulting quality

    This thing is like a chinese toy you'd buy to your pet cockroach or something. Extremely poor build quality. The connector is not even gold-plated (both lightning and 3.5mm). I bought this to see if an upgrade to an iPhone 8 is an option for me; nope.

    Breaks in two months

    This adapter is POORLY made and breaks in 1-2 months. I've gone through two of them. I use an iPhone 8 Plus.

    Don’t get an iPhone 7

    Let me save your money. The iPhone 7 works just like the previous iPhones. So save your money and get yourself the old ones. The issue I have with this IPhone is the headphone jack adapter. It is useless and also, the new earphones are ridiculous. The jack is fragile and yes $12 is not a lot if don’t you don’t have to buy it again. Nonetheless, when it keeps on breaking, that $12 will accumulate itself to over $50 in the long run. Apple just wants your money and not your best interest . So again, save your money and don’t get it.

    P.S: if I could i would rate this product a 0. So disappointed in Apple. I’m switching to Samsung after my plan ends.

    Worthless. Don’t even work for 1 song

    I have bought 2 of these hoping the first was bad, but no, they just don’t work! I like the iPhone but I find that in my vehicle I have no way of playing the audio, be it iTunes, Apple Music, xmradio or any audio whatsoever out of my iPhone.
    I spent the money to buy a genuine Apple lightning to 3.5 mm adapter and it won’t even stay playing for longer than 1 song. So frustrating! There are many forums on this problem, but no solution. I am sure Apple has to be aware of the problem. Wish there was a zero star option.
    In the meantime save your money because these just simply don’t work. I wish Apple had simply kept the 3.5 mm jack in the phone... not sure anyone would’ve cared the phone was 1 cm larger because of it.
