    Really annoying

    The adapter works fine, is not expensive for an apple product and after a few months is still fine (which really surprised me, I thought I would last a month or so). But the concept is awful, since ALL other devices do not need the adapter and THERE IS NO oposite adapter (from 3.5mm to lightning) makes not sense at all to buy lightning headphones for example. So what is the idea behind all this mess? No idea

    Only comes in white colour?!

    Very disappointed with this product. This is not a solution to the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack. It's a very cheap solution. Very inconvenient. Not compatible with all headphones. Plus: why do I get a white adapter? Why isn't there an option for black? Other colours? My phone is black and the headphones I like and use are black as well. The only thing that's white is this stupid adapter.

    Bad quality horrible design

    This cable is awful, the worst thing in the tech world. Btw I have a Iphone 7 and I want to change for a pixel if someone knows who wants an iPhone, also the sound quality in the iPhone 7 gets downgraded, alac files sound like ��

    Cheap and poorly made

    I've had a new iPhone 7 since November and my headphone adapter is already malfunctioning. The connection is weak and it's ridiculous Apple is forcing people to switch from a reliable headphone port to a poorly made adapter to use headphones.

    Apple doesn't care about sound quality

    Apple maybe is just about $ and visual appeal. The iphone 7 is a step backward in sound quality from the 6s. And this little dongle doesn't solve it.

    Why not make a phone with a decent DAC? The bottom line? Can't afford it? Ha!

    How about putting some of your genius engineers to work on an actual solution for iphone 7 that aids audio quality?

    Super cheaply made

    I'm not having any problems with my earphones, the controls and everything work fine. I'm using Brainwavz Delta if anyone wants a solid pair of earphones. Anyway, the adapter that I had outta the box started to crackle and not work after a while. When they worked, it was fine, but now the audio crackles, the songs play/pause themselves, turned up or down the volume, and its even hung up some calls for me lol. But they're $9, not too big of a problem.

    Excellent buy

    I lost my earbuds and needed to replace both the earbuds and the adapter. After trying a knockoff that didn't work, I went immediately to the Apple Store. Great customer service. The adapter is priced a few more then the knock off. Well worth the purchase!!! Works great w/ANY earbuds you have. I've not had any issues. I highly recommend this if you want to use regular earbuds.

    Huge Apple fan but this is pretty awful. I cannot stand wires that come with standard earphones but the apple earpod design did not appeal to me, mostly because it reminds me of the originally apple earphones that were uncomfortable, would leak music and not stay in the ears (with just the wires cut off). This little accessory however has not lasted long at all, making it very pricey for what it is. I replaced my Sennheiser earphones thinking they were the problem but it turns out it's this little thing - the connector kept starting/stopping my audio, causing it to jump, skip tracks, activating voice recognition/control, activating Siri, all the annoying things you don't want when you're trying to listen to music or simply use your phone!!!! Surprised Apple released something that surely went through rigorous testing but this things fails and given the other reviews it's a known fault not a coincidence.

    The worst design ever

    Bluetooth AirPods has about 50-100ms delay in sound sync. The 3.5mm jack adapter is so thin and easy to be ripped. Customers are forced to buy another $40 dongle if they want to use the charge the phone and make calls, without sound delays, simultaneously.

    The most irritating problem with this adapter is that I need to use it. I have four music systems in my house, and none of them have bluetooth. I have an audio cord for each, and now I have to buy three more adapters or be running all over my house to find the one adapter I do have. That annoying. And there is no way I'm going to carry around an adapter with me at all times, so this makes it difficult to use any one else's stereo. Apple, give us back our 3.5mm jack. Listen to your customers for once instead of giving us your usual arrogance.

    Used for running and have broken within a month 3 times!

    I use my iPhone 7 for running and use my favorite headphones while doing so via the adaptor. Well, after three months I am on my THIRD, yes THIRD adaptor. After a month it just stops working like a broken wire in your headphones. So cheap, and by not offering a free replacement option, really not fair to loyal iPhone users. ZERO STARS! Well, one because thats the lowest I can pick.

    Works, but flimsy.
    Best suited to use whilst stationary, as seems to be wrong length for use in pockets.
    Cable to headphones is always straining against it, which leads to momentary cut-outs until a 'perfect' location is reached (which is almost never when walking).
    However, seems to be Hobson's choice, so will probably have to buy one every 3 months or so...

    Shorts out quickly

    This is my second adapter. Each lasted about a month before it began shorting out. I have to shake the cable to get it to work. Very irritating.

    Worst idea ever

    If it were possible to rate this and the iphone 7 with 0 stars, I would do that. This jack does not work with heaphones. I use $200 bose headphones. I've had the phone for 4 months and buying this phone has been the biggest mistake I've ever made with apple.
    This is what happens: If headphones are plugged in when a call comes in and you answer the call, the microphone will not work. If you are on a call using this headphone jack, it will just cut out mid call with no notice. If you are on a call and you bump the headphone jack, then there will be a static sound and the person you are talking to will think the call has dropped.

    Very upset with apple

    For removing the 3.5mm that has been working fine for all of us... maybe this is a way for apple to just make more $$$$ off of us. Or maybe this is how they felt in the 80's when they all had to buy an adapter to fit 3.5mm when they were getting rid of the old huge jacks...

    Worked good but it just stopped working...

    I've had my IPhone 7 since October 2016 and it's now February 2017 and I used my adapter with my skullcandy earbuds everyday since and I was walking and they literally just stopped working! I prefer to use my skullcandys over the EarPods because they sound better and now I can't. All I'm saying is they work good but not for long. If you're planning to buy don't expect to not have to buy it again because believe me they won't last too long.

    I'm honestly just really disappointed...

    Almost as poor as a Mac charger, but doubly infuriating.

    Plot lost. I have invested in good cans, and you treat me to this?

    Shoddy, but I have to use it...

    The DAC/Amp in this device is no worse than the usual built-in one in the previous iPhones, but the design and construction means that the little adapter is a ticking time-bomb until the wire rips. The flimsy design means that there is always leverage on the wire so it will rip very quickly. However, Apple's arrogant decision of removing the 3.5mm jack forces us to use this adapter regardless. Oh well.

    Absolute Garbage

    Despite the new iphone 7 not having a 3.5mm jack i was wasn't worried that i wouldn't be able to use my audiotechnica m50x as it came with the jack converter.

    This jack converter is absolute garbage i'm using audio technica m50x on both macbook pro (2015) and when i compare the audio from the iphone with the jack its like the iphone isn't producing any sound at all there so much data loss.

    My entire experience of music with the new iphone is ruined even the stock iphone headphones are any brighter on my list and having the 6s as well with the default 3.5mm jack it sounds better than the new iphone 7.

    Thank you Apple for making a 700+ $$$ device that has worse sound the previous one.
    one true angry consumer
