If Apple put these wirless headphones with iphone it would be great idea!
But they wanted to isheep more
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2016Well said and presented. Crapple fans stop hiding! Show yourself! Show me iphone 7 'innovation'!iPhone 7 innovation is that Crapple found three more ways to squeeze even more money out of it's blinded sheep by removing 3.5mm jack... and here is how exactly :
1. New expensive AirPods $159.00 which are easy to lose and break , while offering quite crappy sound quality . - selling these is a way to earn more money .
2. Those who don't want to settle for crappy AirPods and want use their own superior headphones will have to mess with annoying adapter , what this achieves ? well it breaks charging port because it wears and tears few times faster when used more frequently then just for regular charging. - servicing and replacing charging port is a way to earn more money . and yeah they will probably sell few adapters too , again more money to them ...
3. Having Bluetooth connection enabled all the time just to listening music via AirPods will drain phone battery even faster making user to charge their phone even more frequently shortening battery life cycle. - servicing and replacing phone battery is a way to earn more money.
and yeah you can't charge your phone and listening to music at the same time anymore ...that just an inconvenience and doesn't bring more money to crapple .but I guess they are already working to make money even out of this inconvenience ...they will probably come up with some super innovatively expensive battery cases :D
I'm an iPhone user since day 1 of iPhone. Removing 3.5mm jack is a disaster. I am using cover ear headphone by Beats and Sennheiser as an alternative to my regular iPhone 3.5mm jack headset. Using adaptor/connector looks ugly. For now i will stick on my iPhone6s.
So you have plenty of 3.5mm premium headphone keep it frozen or put on ebay, because iphone 7 give up 3.5mm jack.
The Jack is gone, the Rose must be sad.

AnonD-425563, 25 Sep 2016The only people who talks shits about iphone are the ones who doesn't own themLol , best comment ever..
I'd be going for Samsung Gear IconX if I had iPhone 7. AirPods look stupid on your ears.
Amount of excuses and workarounds for a phone built in 2016 oh yeah progress. Just shows fans will do anything and even be annoyed and inconvenianced just to own silly iPhone.
Only 46% negative voting towards apple on a site that contains 75% pro android/Samsung readers?
AnonD-425563, 25 Sep 2016return it quickly it will blow up :vThe defective bunch of batteries, doesn't change the fact, that it's the best, most functional, and the most beautiful phone on the Planet. And it has audio-jack too.
I think, the menial media must STOP repeating that Apple do this for pushing the future.
Apple did it many times before, but this time this not the case.
Yes the auduo jack is old(though it developed with the time), but Apple didn't offer anything better this time. They offered worse.
The only reason they did it is, to profit from the Lightning licensing. That was the ''courage'' about . Period!
Even though, they were greedy to offer second Lightning on the audio jack place, but just cut one port from the iPhone. Excuses about place and water-resistance are pathetic

Anonymous, 25 Sep 2016Unfortunately almost all phone not have fm radio enabled so its a non problemIf you wanna send music to your car radio through FM sender, you can not do it anymore while charging.
If you travel and use battery pack for charging, you can not listen to music or take phone calls
If you are on a party or club you can not ask anymore the DJ to plug your phone to play music from there.
If you are charging at home, you can not take calls without to unplug charging again and again, which is not good for the battery.

AnonD-60230, 25 Sep 2016it still costs more than normal, and Nokia doesn't provide the finest of the music experience ... moreactually nokia headsets start as low as 20$ on ebay..if stocks are there..and i said it as an alternative, IF someone wanted to buy bt headsets...an i know personally that nokia devices have excellent batteries...i have a stereo headset that i didnt touch for 2years, then used it without charging..and it played for 2hours on that residual charge..and speaking of sound quality, we are talking about budget headphones on bluetooth..sound quality went out the window. still if you want something better, you could try sony or skullcandy, both provide behind the neck headphones, although i use a philips tapster now..its an old model but it had touch controls..pretty cool for 2011 tech
