One of my sticking points in getting a new iPhone has been the idea of giving up plug-in headphones. I’ve been using wired headphones since the invention of the portable music player over thirty years ago.
So the thought of getting rid of plug-ins for wireless didn’t sit well. A few years ago, I was given a pair of Bluetooth headphones and it was a necklace with retractable earphones monstrosity that was used twice and then discarded.
I’m not opposed to improvements in technology. I was at first flummoxed when they removed the headband from headphones 🎧, if for no other reason than that I was happy with the way things were, but the convenience of being able to carry a pair in a spare pocket made me a convert.
So when they said the new iPhones were sans a headphone jack, I balked. It felt like another BS move by Apple to make stuff that was no longer backwards compatible.
And then I found this.
