      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

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.

      Why does Apple sell this?

      Adapter is terrible. Lots of static. I should had read the reviews before buying this in the store. A complete pain to return.

      Belkin is a horrible company looking to take your money.

      You might as well burn your money. That 40 dollars is going to a cheap piece of plastic casing and a couple copper wires to make a horrible, flimsy, worthless s You might as well burn your money. That 40 dollars is going to a cheap piece of plastic casing and a couple copper wires to make a horrible, flimsy, worthless scam of a product endorsed by Apple. I don’t know what I am more disappointed in, the fact that I threw away my receipt or I bought this. It is absolutely ridiculous that this product works about two percent of the time. When it does decide to work it sounds horrible degrading my decent sound system to something out of Dollar General. Belkin is a company not to be trusted, and I suggest that no one ever buy there products.

      Last iPhone I ever buy

      I was reluctant to upgrade to the 10 specifically because I need to be able to plug in to my car audio AND charge at the same time (need the functionality so I I was reluctant to upgrade to the 10 specifically because I need to be able to plug in to my car audio AND charge at the same time (need the functionality so I can work on the phone from the car over extended periods). The Apples Sales person convinced me that with this adaptor I could have the best of all worlds. WRONG! Had I known how unreliable and low quality this product would turn out to be I never would have purchased my new iPhone. Apple screws its customers over in order to make a short term profit by forcing us to purchase non-value added components. No wonder Apple is losing its dominance. Long time Samsung avoider here, and just bought my first android product. Farewell Apple.
