    Very Good Audio Quality on the Cheap

    Listening with a new pair of Status CB-1's and a pair of Sennheiser 555's the audio quality was as good or better than with the headphone jack on my iPhone 6.

    Poor Build and Sound Quality

    Cheap, low quality DAC. Poor sound quality. Cheap materials. No gold plated contacts.
    Please respect your customers, make better quality and higher priced alternatives.
    We are willing to pay more for better sound quality products.

    Fragile and low quality

    The adapter fell apart completely after a couple months of use, rendering me completely unable to use headphones in my phone until I buy a replacement, which I will most likely have to replace again in a couple of months. If Apple is going to go through with making us switch over to lightning headphones, and only have the capacity to charge/listen to media one at a time, they should make a better quality adapter. Paying $9 for a two-inch wire that falls apart in a month is ridiculous.

    Appalling

    Bought one and it just doesn't work. Well, it worked for about 3 seconds and then stopped. Apple used to be about user-centric innovation...sadly, the decision to block us from using the headphones we want (TO LISTEN TO AN APPLE DEVICE!) is a very, very bad one.

    Horrible HORRIBLE.... well played Apple.

    So now my iPhone 7 plus will only support Apple devices. I've had my iPhone 3 months and already blown through FOUR of these stupid adapters. They work for about a week, get static in the transmission, and then STOP working. Such a rip off. As a long time supporter of Apple, I'm seriously considering switching to another brand. First my iPhone 6 plus warps and the screen stops responding, and now this! Plus, all my old accessories are trash since I my phone won't support them because they are verizon brand and not Apple.

    Fragile and replaced multiple times

    Part of my job I rely on my IPhone and it music, however the connector I have had to replace once and now I will have to again. The only plus is that it doesn’t cost much...but can you please do something so that it’s not so fragile

    Quality of adapter

    A must use for all new iPhones. Apple should have made this adapter without a flimsy wire in between the jacks. This will definitetly cause problems in the future. Would we be able to get a free replacement if that happens?

    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.
