    I had to replace mine. These should be free.

    I am hoping that in the next iPhone Apple will find a way to build one of these right into the phone so that you don't need an adapter for everything. Duh.

    Ridiculous and wasteful - BRING BACK THE JACK

    Since this piece of easy-to-lose garbage is non recyclable, it's a huge burden on the environment that is entirely preventable.
    The fact that I have to carry this tiny thing around so I can listen to music or play through my car stereo is a HUGE step backwards. No, I don't have bluetooth in my car. No, I don't use bluetooth headphones because I have yet to find any that are both reasonably priced AND that don't lose their charge within 90 minutes - 2 hours.
    What a huge inconvenience this is, in terms of Apple products hoping to remain relevant and sleek. I have, yet again, left the adapter at home so I couldn't listen to podcasts in the car or at work. User error? Uh, NO. Adapt to the user. Adapt to humans and human error.
    I ended up buying 4 of these things so I can keep one at every location I might use my phone. Enjoy my $36.

    Not compatible with Square card readers and so much more!

    I cannot be more frustrated by Apple crossing the line and removing the AUX port!! I am buying two more of these adaptors so my husband and I can listen to music in our cars without forever having to know where the dang adaptor is. I cannot believe I am saying this but this little dangly bit is the reason I will never buy another iPhone. (Unless the 8 brings it back!) It's been a year and this little adaptor and the need for it has caused WAY more problems than I ever EVER expected.

    Terrible product

    Want to listen to your music at half the volume and have nobody understand you when talking on the phone using the microphone then this is the product for you!

    The input on this gets extremely loose and everything stops working. Bonus: you can't use your headphones and charge your phone at the same time.

    Horrible! Horrible! Horrible! Horrible! Horrible!

    Why would Apple even change the audio jack for this BS product?!! It is not
    Compatible with anything! I can't even play my music in my car or better yet with my beats headphone without it shutting off and skipping songs and not to mention hanging up my phone calls. I'm highly disappointed and is highly considering leaving Apple completely. Worse product ever! I even resorted to down grading my iPhone 7 to the IPhone 6S because of this problem. Highly disappointed with my iPhone right now. I can do without this

    Worst cord ever

    Purchased twice from the Apple store. The chord is clearly of such low quality. $10 on something that breaks easily is bs. Your product is sh¡t

    Definitely recommend!!

    I purchased this item and didn't pay for shipping and in the same day it was shipped. The next day I received a text and email saying it was delivered.i saw it on my steps in a thick layer of bubble wrap for a small package which really impressed me! Would most definitely recommend buying this works great!

    Poor, kludgy solution. I bought the newest MBP w/ Touchbar + iPhone 7 and I can't even share my headphones between them (or power my iPhone when headphones are plugged in)... Apple user since the 90's, and this latest, powerfully stupid design choice has left me speechless and wary of the end of the "it just works" era.

    Black iPhone with white jack adapter

    Black iPhone with white jack adapter... what's a joke? And how can I connect my Lighting headphones to the MacBook Pro?

    I'm shocked Apple has produced such a subpar product, and that they would charge iPhone users for a feature they decided to remove. Fragile piece of junk.

    Dumb idea

    Very inconvenient to use with aux cords. Easy to lose, expensive (in my opinion) to replace.

    The adapter is flimsy and causes output to cut off. While using it with a non-Bluetooth input any pop up messages on your phone will stop the music. If you are not ready to commit to a total Bluetooth set up think twice before upgrading to the iPhone 7. Their commitment to a solution for non-Bluetooth output appears half hearted. This is not a solution on which you can rely. I have had to break out my old iPod in order to play music on my non-Bluetooth enabled system. Very disappointed in Apple and this product.

    stopped working

    I shouldn't even have to be buying this but my adapter stopped working a couple months after I bought it. Apple should just give these out for free because it's ridiculous that I have to buy another one after only having it for a couple months.

    Flimsy piece of junk that either gets lost or breaks !

    When I first felt this thing I was shocked. It just feels so flimsy. My first thought was this can't last more than a month or 2. I was wrong. It lasted 3 months. This cheaply designed converter doesn't stand a chance with heavy headphone cables plugged into to it. All of that weight pulling on that thin weak wire right at the connection to the lightning part is just too much for it. You have to be super careful whenever you use it. Its more than mildly annoying !! What were they thinking? Did they try plugging in anything other than light weight earbud cables. Did they not realize the growing trend in the use of big headphones with substantial cables. Did they ever hear of Beats (which detest, but its an example) , oh wait ..... they own Beats ... Didn't they try them and see how it pulls on the adapter at the joint?

    Even if it didn't break, I would have lost that scrawny thing !!!!! I've already lost 2 replacements !!! Even before I lost them, I kept misplacing them everywhere. Who needs to keep track of one more thing? I've got to bring my wallet, my keys, my work badge and my phone .... and now I have to keep making sure that I bring that rat tail with me everywhere? Apple you just added an unnecessary step to my life !!! Who needs another burden ???

    Bluetooth ? ... Why should I have to abandon all of my high end $500-1500 headphones to get junky Bluetooth headphones ... they are never as good as wired and have to be charged (another gadget to carry around and lose) ????

    I hate what Apple did, I really do. They need to go back to the 3.5mm connector. What did they accomplish ... 0.2mm thinner? that's imperceptible. ... waterproof? ... I won't go swimming, take pictures while standing in the rain, or drop it in the toilet, I promise !

    Many have suffered for the few !

    Great product

    I don't understand the negative reviews...
    Sure if the phone had kept the 3.5mm connector many of us would be better off.
    Still I think Apple offered the best replacement they could with this adapter.
    Honestly the sound quality is superior than the previous integrated audio.
    I tested with a few headphones including the very revealing Shure SE846 and the adapter beats a 6S hands down.
    Now for the durability I don't know what people do with it but I have been using my adapter for 6 months now and no issue or sign of wear. I guess I take care of my stuff...

    Works fine with headphones with mic

    I have the bose noise cancelling microphone for iphone and this works with my headphones and mic. I take conference calls using it all the time. Wish apple made an option to have two adapters (one headphone and one lighting) in one so I can charge and listen to calls / music.

    sound quality goes out the window with iPhones 7 headphone adapter

    I bought a set of the Bose QC20 headphones in 2016, which are amazing btw, and when plugged into my iPhone 7, with the phones stock and included lighting to headphone adapter, they sound half the quality the earbuds are capable of. Please create a better adapter Apple.
