    Finding a needle in a haystack would be easier....

    Not only is the quality a bit rubbish but it's also tiny!! I lost mine in the first week of buying my phone! Can they not at least add a little loop so that I can attach it to my keys??

    Joke

    I was using my aux in my car and my music stopped, I assumed my battery had died or my data had ran out so switched to the radio. When I arrived at my destination I was VERY disappointed to find that it wasn't my phone battery or my data, but my adapter had just stopped working. For no apparent reason. Tried on several other phones and aux cables and cars and still no luck. My phone still plays through my friends adapters but not mine. How infuriating and inconvenient. I wouldn't mind if I had dropped it in water or had it lying around the bottom of my hand bag or floor, as you can expect things like this to happen in that case. My adapter had stayed in my car attached to the aux in the glove compartment since I purchased the phone, so it has basically never left the car. After reading all other reviews I am now reluctant to buy a new one knowing that It is more than likely going to happen again and again. But I guess that is where Apple make there money - clever but HUGELY annoying for your customers!! This has made me consider switching to Google or Samsung when my contract runs out to avoid the headphone jack adapter all together! Which is a shame because I do love my iphones!

    Broke in just a couple of days

    Worst thing that could've been brought to the new iPhones.

    absolutely awful DISGUSTING

    Apple needs to improve their products. The first one broke and after 2 days of the second one I bought, the first time i used it all I could hear was static music and cracking. DO NOT BUY. Music quality is more like an out of tune radio. At least the radio is reliable. Read other opinions and you will find the same thing as me

    The lack of headphone jack is a huge downgrade

    I held off buying a new iPhone for 3 years because of the lack of headphone jack. Now I’ve upgraded (or downgraded depending on how you look at it) to an iPhone 8. I’ve had it for 2 months. Having to use this flimsy adapter is totally ridiculous. I can’t charge my phone while I use the adapter and it’s the thinnest weakest wire I’ve ever encountered. It’s like a bad joke on Apples part. I don’t want to move over to Bluetooth because I would have to charge it up every day + I would have to have Bluetooth set to “On” on my iPhone (draining my phone battery even more than normal). Ridiculous and this adapter is rubbish.

    Rubbish adapter

    I purchased a replacement one under a year ago and it’s already causing problems.
    When watching something with the headphones connected it suddenly fast forwards, tops the video , moves onto another one or simply starts playing music

    Pointless and annoying

    Absolutely hate these little things. Easy to break and exceptionally easy to lose. Really wish I’d never bought the iPhone 8 as the lack of headphone jack is very annoying. At £9 a go the adapters are overpriced rubbish.

    Repeatedly buying these, repeatedly breaking.

    Absolute garbage. After around a month of infrequent use, they are unusable, any movement of the cable starts triggering music playback controls. Keep buying because there are no alternatives in the market. Awful.

    This is the worst product I have ever bought from Apple

    The quality of the product is terrible, it breaks after just a few weeks of normal use and it also impairs the quality of the sound coming through the headphone. The product is also massively overpriced and a pain to have to buy a new one every time it breaks. This is honestly the worst product I have ever bought from Apple

    Very poor quality

    It is shame Apple come up with this stupid adapter which doesnt work properly in the first place. I am using Bose Earphone with this..but the qualtiy of contact is so poor that I drop out of the call randomly.. loose voice on the call..
    What an overprice stupid item.

    Frustrating! (Zero stars)

    I’ve used an iPhone for a good few years now, but this silly change with the headphones situation makes me think about looking for something else. I have been through 4 of these adapters so far. Either they break in my pocket or, the most infuriating bit, my phone suddenly starts to have a life of its own. Start, stop, start, stop, voice controls, start, stop, skip 3 songs and this is all in 20 seconds. I JUST WANT TO LISTEN TO MY MUSIC MAN!! C’mon apple, have a heart and sort it out.

    Indefensible..

    I often stick up for Apple's high price point for their products, as often, their brilliance makes it more than worth it. But this is a case of Apple creating a problem for the consumer (removing the universal standard headphone jack), & leaving you with a poor quality adapter as the only solution. Mine's lasted 2 months. At this rate, if the iPhone lasts for the 24 month contract, I'll end up spending £108 on new adapters..

    Rubbish

    Original broken already. Tried to buy a cheap replacement but Apple refuses to let us use non-Apple accessories. Ridiculous waste of money. Yet another step in the wrong direction - form over function...

    What a joke.

    Spend over £600 on a new phone which comes with this flimsy, poorly made adapter that has broken after 3 months.

    0 stars

    I wish I could give this zero stars. It’s infuriating to have to replace this adapter every 3-6 months having already forked out for the phone itself. After a whle it starts skipping and stopping songs, and there’s absolutely no way you can hold the phone to stop it doing this.

    Simply infuriating

    So some bright spark at Apple decided that the globally standard way of connecting headphones wasn’t good enough and In tern replaces it with a system that at best is floored and at worst could be described at the single worst idea Apple have every had. I’m a through and through Apple user, iMac, Mac book pro, iPad 4, iPad Pro, iPod and iPhone and never before on an Apple product have I genuinely been dumbfounded by such a mindlessly stupid idea as to remove the 3.5 jack. Even more frustrating is despite the end users repeatedly and publicly saying to bring it back Apple refuse to put it back and continue to release products without the 3.5 Jack, in a stubborn act comparable only to a child. And then the final kick in the teeth is that the adaptor supplied is of such poor quality it fails after a matter of months! Not a problem I said as I ordered an after-market adaptor online. But then you build in safeguards to block the use of non OEM or MFI products. I’ve always known and expected Apple products to be more expensive. And I’ve accepted and been willing to pay that price for a superior quality product. But this... this is rubish!

    Lost mine

    Guess what I have lost my adapter!!
    I have about 6 pairs of headphones - where does the adapter go? Where shall I keep it?

    I am so irritated about removing the jack I will move to another brand of phone when my contract is up.

    The Apple release that released me from Apple

    Because of this, I'm trading my iPhone 8+ for a HD player and have cancelled my Apple Music trial.

    It made listening to music a trial in itself.

    It sends random signals: stop, start, forward a track, stop, start, stop, start, stop, start, forward another track, jump back four tracks, stop, start... all within three seconds.

    This isn't a headphone adapter, it's a series of random, audio panic attacks that will turn your brain into a Cubist nightmare.
