      Is not compatible with in-line microphones

      This is not a solution to Apple's removal of the headphone jack for people who use wired headphones with in-line microphones to make phone calls. Massive disapp This is not a solution to Apple's removal of the headphone jack for people who use wired headphones with in-line microphones to make phone calls. Massive disappointment, Apple thoroughly misled on this product's ability to retain the functionality that they removed from the iPhone with the launch of the 7.

      Ridiculous apple

      As soon as I saw this adapter, I knew it was going to be a problem based on my experience with lifeproof's similar adapter. As far as features on a phone go, on As soon as I saw this adapter, I knew it was going to be a problem based on my experience with lifeproof's similar adapter. As far as features on a phone go, one of the most important to me is using my headphones for audio. I purposely avoided the 7 for this exact reason and almost went samsung when I absolutely had to get a new phone, but ended up going with apple again for other reasons. So, I pick up the 7 and sure enough a couple months in, the adapter is failing. Cutting in and out, raising my volume to full blast out of nowhere, lowering my volume, crashing my music apps........I feel bad complaining about such a small problem on the scale of problems, but when you spend this kind of money on a phone, you should not encounter problems like this, especially so early. Apple, you fixed what wasn't broken, for whatever reason, and didn't even come up with a good solution for what you took out. You've created a problem for the people that bought/continue to buy your phone and now they are forced to replace adapters all the time or search and pay for 3rd party products so they can use one of the most basic features of their smartphone. I hope you put the headphone jack back on your next phone, but if you don't, at the very least fix this stupid adapter.

      Wow, totally bad idea!?

      I thought at first okay no problem since Apple probably really engineered this to work. Boy was I wrong. Just bought an iPhone 7 Plus last week and I really mis I thought at first okay no problem since Apple probably really engineered this to work. Boy was I wrong. Just bought an iPhone 7 Plus last week and I really miss the headphone jack. Pure garbage when trying to play any-kind of music through a decent set of earbuds. Wired is where it's at still and Bluetooth cannot equal the quality. I hooked my buds up to my 6s and then switched over to the same song on Spotify just to make sure. One can really hear the difference. I kept thinking it CAN'T be that bad through the lightening connector so I just kept trying different tunes and then went to my iTunes lossless files on my 6s and then to back to my 7 Plus with the same lossless music files. What a bummer that Apple thinks this is a good idea?

      ABSOLUTE JUNK

      Whoever came up with this idea is beyond SUPER stupid. It's so inconvenient. I run with my iphone and obviously don't want to drop extra cash to buy earphones t Whoever came up with this idea is beyond SUPER stupid. It's so inconvenient. I run with my iphone and obviously don't want to drop extra cash to buy earphones that only work with Iphones so i am forced to use the dumb adaptor. I just broke my second adaptor after 2 months of using my new iphone 7. Never has design been done so poorly - this is so stupid that I am about to cry in frustration. I don't know whether Apple is trying to be clever here with the whole nice design thing but this is absolutely not working. Generous to even give this thing a one star. For god's sake if you are going to put in a workaround like an adapter at least please make a sturdy one
