    Worst device ever!

    I just had my new iphone 7 and I saw this device, and I knew that I will lose it. And I have.
    You may wish to buy something more useful, like a battery with a 3.5" jack embedded on it, that is something that might get the iphone useful again.

    So inconvenient

    I understand the whole double speaker thing with the iPhone 7 but I hate having to use this adapter to listen to music or whatever on my phone. You can't do anything without it. It's so important but so easy to misplace all the time. I don't understand why the headphone jack had to be taken away from the phones. It is extremely inconvenient and inefficient. They could of at least given us the adapter in addition to a pair of headphones with the adapter built into it.

    Terrible Choice and Quality by Apple

    I travel a lot for work. The result, get off plane and into a rental car and need to charge phone and listen to directions to get me to where I need to go, but NO, cant do that! It is no longer possible to charge and use the speaker at the same time. It is no longer possible to charge and take a call on speaker or with headphones at the same time either.... and yet another small piece to keep track of in the travel process? Does anyone in the apple staff travel? It seems it was simply not considered in the design process. This is my 3rd adapter. 1st lost because its another small piece to keep track of, 2nd just stopped working after 3 months, and finally a 3rd we will see...

    Really really disappointing

    After investing thousands of dollars in iTunes and other devices in the Apple platform, this is the most insulting feature yet. Sound quality is terrible, and for those people who love music, the Bluetooth option is even more mediocre. The designers have no respect for the Apple community of customers.

    Quality must be in the grave with Mr. Jobs. What were you thinking?

    It only lasted a month....

    I bought a adapter about a month ago because the 3.5mm jack on my iPhone 6S Plus stopped working. I use it everyday at work, Monday to Friday, and it gave up the ghost today... just like the original headphones the 3.5mm adapter bends a lot while in my pocket while doing random tasks thus breaking the fragile wires inside... :( good thing the adapters are cheap...

    Bad Music quality

    Definitely decreases music quality compared to the old standard headphone Jack. I dont know why Apple did this. Obviously speed does not equal music quality here.

    Not recognized

    Phone doesn't seem to recognize the adaptor half the time. Did Apple suddenly ditch the whole 'it just works' philosophy, because this certainly doesn't work as described.

    Very Glitchy

    Works maybe 50% of the time, but never on the first try. Doesn't matter which headphones I use, nothing fixes the problem. I've tried my Apple ear buds from my previous phone (iPhone 6) and they don't fix the problem. I've tried my Bose QC15 headphones and they don't fix the problem. Audio plays from the phone speakers instead of the headphones. I have to plug and unplug the adapter several times to get it recognized. I've tried plugging and unplugging from the lightning side and from the 3.5mm audio jack side, doesn't matter. Even tried flipping the lightning connector, still doesn't matter. Very disappointing. I'm using iOS 10.2.1. This iPhone 7 and adapter had the issue right out of the box (purchased about 1 month ago, Feb-2017, from Verizon).

    I used the adapter only 2 times a week for 5 months then it stopped working. When I plugged it in the other day, the music came out of the speakers from the phone not my headphones. They replace it for free for the first year but you have to go to the Apple Store which is a HUGE pain. If Apple is going to provide an adapter instead of an actual headphone jack, is should at least be durable. I am extremely disappointed that Apple got rid of the headphone jack. I hope they bring it back in future iPhone models.

    Don't buy!

    I got mine with my iPhone, but after just 2 months it almost completely stopped working. I get choppy sound and sometimes one or even two sides of my earphones don't have any sound.

    Solid product and works as expected

    great quality! apple even thought about the rubberish base on the lighting end that will not scratch your phone and have a great snagging fit. with apple iphone 6 headset works exactly like the new (iphone 7) headset - same music quality, same controls! i have a few headsets from the previous iphones and will use it with this adapter!

    sorry for the folks that can't use it with other non-apple products....

    Hate Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone

    I hate this adapter. It is so easy to misplace and then your expensive noise canceling headphones are unusable. This has happened on multiple occasions making long airline flights much more annoying. Also, I hate that I can't listen to my headphones and charge my phone - I tried an after-market version that does both but the sound quality is horrible. I listen to music while working a lot and I really don't want to have bluetooth signal going an inch from brain at all times so I refuse to replace with a wireless version which seems to be the very heavy handed intent of this. I have been on the iPhone since the iPhone 3 but will certainly consider a change to either the new Samsung or Google Pixel when my contract is up.

    Piece of Junk

    Severe degradation of sound quality and breaks easily.

    The adapter that I purchased from Apple broke soon after it was put to use. I then bought a cheaper adapter from Groupon in hopes that it would be a semi-decent substitute. It worked well for about two days until it was on its last limb. I even tried a variety of different headphones to hook up to both of the adapters that were purchased through Apple and Groupon; it was proven not to be the root cause of the problem.

    I believe the root cause of the poor sound quality as well as its over functional (in)ability is the adapter itself, regardless of what brand you purchase. As a last attempt, I am going to purchase one more from Apple. Fingers crossed.

    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.

    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?
