      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. Unfo 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.

      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.

Nothing like audio kicking to live iPhone audio at night while the wife is sleeping. Both worked for a little while. Worse than worthless now. Thanks Belkin.

      Absolutely terrible

      Ordered this charger through the Apple Store, received it, and it didn't work out of the box. I too have an older phone, and my headphones all have 3.5mm cables Ordered this charger through the Apple Store, received it, and it didn't work out of the box. I too have an older phone, and my headphones all have 3.5mm cables, which I had hoped this would be useful for. I attempted to use the standard Apple 3.5mm earbuds thinking it was my Bose headphones, but neither worked. Imagine my surprise that on the same day I unboxed this adapter, I was not able to return it through the Apple Store. Very disappointing and a huge waste of $$, never again.
