Great iPhone 7 Headphones for Dongle-Haters

Playing nice with the the Lightning port.


The iPhone 7 is out and, as you know, Apple ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack. In order to listen to music via headphones, you need either Bluetooth headphones, of which there are plenty, or you need wired headphones that can plug into a Lightning port, of which there are relatively few. You could use the 3.5mm adapter, but a direct connection to the Lightning port will provide the best audio quality. If you don’t like the new Apple AirPods that come stock with the iPhone 7, these are your other Lightning-compatible options.
