      Worthless Product, Doesn't Work

      Would give 0 stars if I could. While it was frustrating enough to purchase similar, cheaper products that weren't Apple approved and have them not work properly Would give 0 stars if I could. While it was frustrating enough to purchase similar, cheaper products that weren't Apple approved and have them not work properly or break easily, it was truly infuriating to spend $35 on this product in Apple's own store and have it NOT WORK STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. How is it possible that they've designed a phone that's not actually practical to use as a phone?! I use my phone to make a lot of conference and work related calls throughout the day so it dies all the time because I have to choose between using headphones or charging. It's ridiculous that I can't charge my phone and use headphones at the same time (unless I buy wireless headphones which drain battery faster than the old audio jack headphones). Or heaven forbid you travel and are frequently on a plane ride over two hours because you'll have to choose between using headphones for in-flight entertainment or charging your phone. And no, I don't think I should have to blow $350 to buy new wireless noise-cancelling headphones when I already have a great Bose set just because the one I have requires an audio jack in the phone. Apple, if you're going to make stupid changes to all your new phones, the very least you could do is make your overpriced accessories (that are now necessary to make the phone function for everyday use) in such a way that they actually work. Because all I accomplished with this purchase was a long return process to waste my time.

      Dissapointing

      I've been through 4 of these in a year. The charger constantly goes out. For $40, I feel like it should definitely work for longer than a couple of months.

Unfortunately this is the only option available so I just have to keep buying them

      Broken/Doesn’t Work Properly

I tried with multiple headphones to see if they were the problem and not the adapter but it is 100% the adapter. I will be taking this back.

      Wish I had read reviews before purchase!

      The quality of the conductive material in this dongle is very poor. Even with very light use this thing worked only a short while before the slightest movement The quality of the conductive material in this dongle is very poor. Even with very light use this thing worked only a short while before the slightest movement of it causes the connection to disconnect. For $35 I would expect superior quality. I'm surprised Belkin puts their name on this piece of trash. I made sure the female port on the new phone was clean. Everything works but this hunk of junk. A RIP OFF!!!

      Good product bad price

      I got the adapter for Christmas and it really changed my life. It worked really good for a long time, it only stopped working for me because I set my phone up o I got the adapter for Christmas and it really changed my life. It worked really good for a long time, it only stopped working for me because I set my phone up on my stomach when I’m on it and the wires broke in the adapter, but that’s my fault. In my opinion the product is a little overpriced I mean I think 15-20 dollars sounds like a better deal.

      Intermittent issue

      I have two of these, one is still working fine thankfully but my other one has issues with the charge, nothing wrong with the cable because I can use it fine ou I have two of these, one is still working fine thankfully but my other one has issues with the charge, nothing wrong with the cable because I can use it fine outside of the adapter but when passing charge through the adapter if it moves it will cut charge in and out which can be very annoying when I don't realise its not charging. This product is the 1st time I have ever had an issue with something made by Belkin which makes think apple have rushed them and their process to get this out to market because they wanted to be 'different'
