    Lifespan of < 3 months

    I am now on my way to buy my fourth one of these because after a couple months of use they just stop working. My music will start to skip, it will play music at random point and it activates siri on it’s own. Absolutely sick of it but I have to keep buying them until I can afford some wireless headphones. My sister has had no issues but only uses her headphones a few times a week. Definitely not suited to daily use.

    Horrible Horrible and Horrible

    I'm actually so upset right now. I literally just bought a pair of these not even 3 weeks ago, I was using them all day and everything was perfectly fine, next thing I know, there's static from my ear-pods and my music was pausing and not making any sound. I was so confused, at first I thought it was my phone messing up so I restarted it; nope it was still happening. Then I figured my ear-pods were going bad; nope it wasn't those either because I tried switching mine out with my friends and it still wasn't working. The last thing I thought was it being the headphone jack adapter because I had just bought a new one, long behold, it was! I'm so frustrated about this because I PROMISE this is the 5th time I've purchased one of these. I am a college student, I'm broke, I don't have the money or the time to be buying and waiting for new headphone adapters every month. They do not last at all, it doesn't matter how careful you are or gentle you are with them. I really do not understand why Apple had to take away the headphone jack built into the phone. It really was the most idiotic thing they could of done. Apple really tried it.

    If I could do 0 stars I would.

    Stupid idea, low quality, every aspect of this is terrible. I've gone through 6 of these in the last year. Apple is overpriced trash most of the time but this product really takes the cake. Corporate greed has led Apple to do this to force customers to spend more money than they already have.

    Not only does the quality of this adaptor have to be much much better, it should also be FREE. I should have transferred to Android when I had the chance with my contract.

    Oh dear!!!

    If your going to remove something as big as the headphone jack at least replace it with a product that works. I'm on my second adapter. last one lasted 6 months and im getting voice control activating when i press the play button if a pause my music for more than 2 minutes, which is nice. I don't even want it but you cant turn it off via headphone activation just the home button. headphones worked perfectly on iPhone 6

    My adapter came with the iPhone 7 I purchased in July 2017. It accidentally went though a full cycle inside my washing machine and came out unscathed, A surprisingly well built product, good sound but is easily lost. (my problem I suppose)

    In all: good job Apple

    They don't last more than a month

    They wear out super fast and then you start losing calls and your music and podcasts change as you walk when your phone is in your pocket. It's SUPER annoying. Will not be getting an iPhone next time I upgrade if they don't sort this out.

    I've had to buy 4 replacements over the duration of owning my iPhone 7plus. Every time they will be rendered completely unusable within around 2months or less. Completely unacceptable. To top it off no third party models I've found are compatible. One third party model worked perfectly but after an iOS update it was deemed an incompatible accessory. Ruined the iPhone 7 expierience; I'd give a 0 star rating if possible

    Lasted 3 months

    After 3 months my headphone connection is static-y, or not working at all. Absolute trash. Apple should be ashamed.

    Well it works ��

    Yes , we all know that its BS idea that they took out the headphone jack for idk what reason but I’m glad I still have the ability to listen to music in my car via aux cord using this . It does what it’s supposed to do . Just stressful that I can’t listen and charge at the same time .

    3.5mm Lightning Adapter - Major Compatibility Problems

    Great thought for those folks that still want a 3.5mm jack replacement but Apple's claim that it works on various models and makes is not true. I decided to buy one even though I was forewarned not to and of course it did not work on my iphone 7s with the latest operating system - just say's this is not compatible. I am up for a new phone but really getting tired of being nickel and dimed on what's supposed to be the best product out there! Really deserves no stars.

    The adapter is fragile as the original iphone earbuds

    The adapter that came with my iPhone 8 worked only for 3 weeks.

    iPhone adapter is the worst ever

    I wish I could give zero star for this adapter didn't even last me 2 weeks, that's crazy I don't know how my of these I bought before. This adapter is literally the worst item ever, apple needs to do something about it, I am so upset right now.

    Not happy with this product

    The adapter came with the iPhone along with the earphones. The earphones were also very disappointing as they broke after only two months of on and off usage. The lightning adapter also broke after only a few months of usage and delivered bad quality of sound with a pair of decent earphones. When they broke however this was especially inconvenient as I use them a lot for work and was left unable to use any earphones because of the massive design flaw of no headphone jack until I could buy a new lightning adapter. Overall I was VERY disappointed in this product.

    These aren't worth it.

    I got my iPhone7 in January 2017 and I've bought 4 of these things already and they all broke within a month besides the original one I got with my phone. The one that came with my phone lasted for about 3 months. They are okay to listen to music, but if I have to keep buying them every month ($10 each), then it's really not worth it. Everyone with the same issue, y'all should just invest in Bluetooth headphone/earphones.

    Apple, Are You Listening?

    Probably not if you're using one of your awful earphone adapters.

    The decision to remove the earphone jack was a MISTAKE.

    Flimsy garbage

    Used it lightly about half a dozen times, now the wires inside are toast and the sound cuts out and crackles, if you can hear it at all. I knew this would happen because the build is so flimsy, but I didn’t think it would happen so soon.

    And here’s the kicker: even if it worked, I still wouldn’t be able to charge my phone and listen at the same time. I know, I know...that is a super-advanced thing to try and do. But tell me again - how is this better than having a headphone jack?

    Had to buy $30 cable from Best Buy that was 10 times better than this garbage. This is the worst Apple product ever.. I have like 5 of these from 5 Apple devices and they are all trash. C'mon apple 0 stars.

    I won't be buying another iPhone until they restore the 3.5mm jack

    This product is cheap and does not meet apple's previously high standards. You are better off sticking to the lighting earphones - better sound quality. However, apple is the only supplier of lightning earphones. If you prefer another brand tough luck. I misplaced my apple earphones and am reluctant to dish out for another pair so I have just been without music for several weeks. The elimination of the 3.5mm jack and the wider choice it gave customers seems to reflect apple's increasing contempt for customers. I have had an iPhone for the past decade but my next phone will be a Samsung.
