Lightning adapter

Hi there.

I just gave up my trusty and reliable 4s for a shiny new 5s. I sucked it up and bought an apple lightning adapter. I know that there are a boatload of knockoff adapters that are out and I recall that none of them allowed audio to pass thru. How about now, though? have any of the manufacturers figured out to recreate Apple's chip in the adapter?

Another thing to consider is that ios 7 has a new security feature that tells you that you are not using an authorized one and "it may not work correctly". Ones that I used with ios 6 are now getting that message with ios 7. I also read somewhere that they eventually crap out. Don't know if that last one is fact. Time will tell.

i recently brought one from Consumer Electronics | Eazy Discount so far, there is't any problem with it.
i had a cheap replica, which i brought from tigerdirect, the delivery was a little late.
this new one which i got from eazydiscount, feels much more durable and their delivery was super fast.
