My span of Grado SR80e headphones are one of my cherished possessions. we adore fibbing on my cot and listening to a manuscript du jour (I’m prepared for 4:44). But interjection to Apple’s bold preference to mislay a headphone jack, we can’t block my SR80s into an iPhone 7 though a Lightning adapter, and I’ve nonetheless to ascent from my iPhone 6 since of it.

But this year a new iPhone is approaching to uncover up, and while we do consider it’s time for me to make a switch, we wish to keep regulating my favorite headphones in this dauntless new world. So we bought some Bluetooth headphone adapters, and we consider we should, too. Not customarily does it let me use my headphones with a newer phone, it lets me bond to a accumulation of inclination though messing with cables.

Use your aged headphones on your new smartphone

A Bluetooth headphone adapter is only a unstable Bluetooth receiver, and outputs by a 3.5mm headphone jack. Like a normal Bluetooth receiver—the Moto Stream for example—you can technically block one in to any orator with a 3.5mm line in jack, yet you’ll have to assign it occasionally. Griffin’s $20 iTrip Clip is a good instance of a inexpensive Bluetooth headphone adapter, while a $99 Noble BTS is reduction overt and flattering sleek-looking.


Your ideal Bluetooth headphone adapter should have a clip-on resource so we can insert it to yourself while lounging, along with an easy approach to assign it, customarily with a micro USB cable.

Its belt shave lets me travel around my residence with zero in my pockets while we do chores, speak to my dog, and wear my favorite pocket-free shorts in a summer heat.

Keep your sound quality

The misfortune partial of losing a 3.5mm jack isn’t a inability to use good headphones, though a unreasonable cost you’ll substantially compensate for new, some-more complicated headphones with defective sound quality. People seem to like Apple’s AirPods, though there’s no approach they sound as good as my over-ear headphones, and that $159 cost indicate seems a small high. Buying a $20 Bluetooth adapter is cheaper than shopping a new span of headphones, no matter how we cut it.

Keep your neighbors happy

I’ve got a sound bar underneath my television, though we live in an apartment. we can’t go blustering this thing while examination Speed Racer on Saturday night for a eleventh time or else my neighbors are gonna understanding with me, Emile-Hirsch style.


I’m regulating a PS4 to tide movies, so we customarily block my Grado cans into my controller, though what if we confirm to squeeze some popcorn during a film and forget to unplug? It wouldn’t be a initial time we forgot my headphones were connected to something stationary. An adapter could giveaway me from my controller-bound jail during my late-night vital room cinema showings, and beauty my neighbors with a good night’s sleep.
