With the recently announcement of the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus, comes the end of the headphone jacks, at-least for Apple iPhone users
“It makes no sense to tether ourselves with cables to our mobile devices,” Schiller said. “Until someone takes on these challenges, that’s what we’ll do.”
The wireless earbud market is still pretty new, and the iPhone 7 will actually be the first smartphone without a headphone jack, marking Apple challenge that much tougher, but the AirPod will include some innovating features allowing you to stream music, ping Siri, or talk on the phone up to five hours on a single charge, over a new proprietary connection technology (the W1 chip) which mean these earbuds won’t work over a Bluetooth connection.
Design wise, not impressive, your basically getting the Apple earbuds, without the wires, you do get a carrying cases, that doubles as a charging dock.
Released Date: October of 2016, priced at $159.
