4 ways to listen to music while charging your iPhone 7

By , Sep 8, 2016

iPhone 7 plus back side

In case you haven’t already figured it out, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus both do completely away with the 3.5mm headphone jack. Instead, Apple is now pushing the industry to use Lightning-based and wireless Bluetooth headphones and speakers.

So with that in mind, how will you possibly use your existing headphones and speakers with your new iPhone while you’re trying to charge it? Well we’ve got four solutions for you that will get your mind off of the missing headphone jack.

1. Use the Apple Lightning Dock

iPhone 7 Apple Dock

One solution to the debacle is purchasing the Apple-branded Lightning Dock to use as an accessory with your iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus as it sits on your table.

This accessory lets you charge your iPhone with the Lightning nub that sticks out of the top, but on the back, you will find a 3.5mm headphone jack tucked away, as well as a Lightning port for power-in.

The Apple Dock can be had in various color options for $49, or for $39 in the basic white color Apple is known for.

2. Use Bluetooth headphones or speakers

It could finally be time to embrace the power of Bluetooth. In the midst of things, you will be getting rid of tangle-prone wires and having a much more seamless experience.

On the other hand, the one thing people always seem to complain about with Bluetooth headphones is when they’re watching videos, sometimes there’s a sound delay between the sound and what’s going on in the movie as the audio is transmitted to the headphones.

Apple claims they’ve solved this problem with an all-new Apple-designed Bluetooth chip in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and recommends using their upcoming $159 wireless AirPods, which are supposed to have virtually no delay at all.

3. Use a Lightning adapter

Belkin Lightning Audio and Charge RockStar

Another option, which is good for those of you who don’t use docks, or might need to use audio accessories and charge at the same time while traveling, is to use an adapter.

There are sure to be many adapters available that will let you split the single Lightning port you have into two separate Lightning ports. In fact, Belkin just announced one called the Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar, which will be available in October, and will allow you to plug your Lightning charge cable into one side, and a pair of Lightning headphones into the other.

The solution is obvious here; with an adapter, you can charge and listen to music with headphones at the same time. Of course, you still have to own a set of Lightning-based headphones, which are still pretty scarce at this point in time.

4. Just use your iPhone’s speakers

iPhone 7 dual speakers

Believe it or not, Apple packed a stereo speaker system into the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. This means the audio quality should be clear and sound high-definition.

If you’re in a pickle and can’t use your headphones or speakers with your new iPhone because it’s charging, maybe it’s best to just bite the bullet and listen to whatever you might be listening to in speaker mode.

To use speaker mode, make sure no headphones or speakers are plugged in or connected wirelessly, and play whatever it is that you want to play. The sound should then come from your iPhone’s internal speaker system instead.

Wrapping up

No solution is going to be perfect for everyone, and with everyone having different kinds of accessories and using their devices differently, perhaps the best thing to do is just get with the times and upgrade your 3.5mm headphone jack accessories to wireless or Lightning.

What will you do to charge your device and use it to listen to audio at the same time? Share in the comments below!

    I hope..apple put wireless charging to the next iPhone

    • Scott Curry

      There’s cases out there you can use for it already…at least for the 6 and 6+. I’m sure they’ll come out for the new phones as well.

      • Vondrook4

        But those plug into the Lightning port and then stick on the back of the phone. Built-in wireless charging would be the only way to free up the port for audio.

      • YewDontSay

        ^this

      • DJ Lodose

        You must work for the accessory department. Why do I need to buy anything else other than the phone to do what every other phone on the market can do already?

    • jakeopp

      Easiest solution, if apple would get with the times.

      • The times aren’t ready yet. Appe wants true wireless charging and I for one agree with them.. Wireless is not resting your phone on a pad or cradle.

      • YewDontSay

        Sorry but what you are describing is decades off if ever. Having that much current running through the air can cause all kinds of problems both to people and other objects. The best solution is Rezence charging which works on a huge surface and works through objects.

      • I wasn’t speaking about a specific process though.. In fact I didn’t describe anything what are you talking about?

      • Blip dude

        So does that mean the future of WiFi charging is essentially DOA, if ever??

        And I still wouldn’t call it “Wireless” charging if it has to lay on a puck. I prefer to call it “semi-untethered” charging.

      • Wilber Alexander Flores

        Right lol this whole wireless charging thing is stupid if I have to sit it on something it’s not technically wireless where as with the cable I can have a 10ft cable move around and charge while with that I’d have to leave it on the charger and once I remove it it stops charging basically useless

      • Shadowelite123

        Not to mention that its much slower than a standard cable.

      • Shadowelite123

        Actually we aren’t decades away from it. For one, PhoneTechJay never mentioned it, but its been invented. It simply hasn’t been redone and redesigned for smartphones or other small devices. There are a few companies working to make it a full reality for smartphones although they haven’t made it completely reliable nor safe at the moment.

    • rockdude094

      You know its shame when apple releases a new phone and we are already wishing for more lol

  • siddique

    Apple strategy tu sell their new earpods ..!! Nothing else ..!! Force buy

    • Scott Curry

      How in hell is this a force buy?? There’s literally HUNDREDS of Bluetooth headphone sets out there you can buy to use with the phone, ranging from $15 to $250+…

      • jakeopp

        Apple owns beats, they’re definitely making money from this decision.

      • Shadowelite123

        Thats one company versus dozens of other companies that sell decent wireless headphones. They aren’t making significant amounts of revenue from wireless headphones alone.

      • George

        Bluetooth sucks balls when it comes to watching videos. That delay will make everyone go mad.

      • Steven Honey

        i use jaybird X2 bluetooth. Never noticed any delay while watching netflix or youtube.

      • Shadowelite123

        Then you must have a terrible pair of wireless headphones because theres no lag on a majority of devices. You must be watching videos and buying cheap bluetooth headphones with little quality to have complaints like that.

      • DJ Lodose

        Obviously they are forcing us to go wireless. And why would you spend $20 bucks for crappy headphones with crappy Bluetooth audio compression.

      • Scott Curry

        Obviously they’re NOT forcing you to go wireless if they’re providing a headphone adapter and making the same adapter available for $9.

      • DJ Lodose

        Why would I want a dongle on my phone? Why do I need it? They are forcing me to use it if I want to buy the phone. Wireless sound quality is not on par with wired sound quality.

      • Scott Curry

        Omg did you bitch this much when they got rid of CD-ROMs? Deal with progress and move forward.

      • DJ Lodose

        Its not progress if the quality and ease is worse than what was being used before.

      • Scott Curry

        Neither of which is the case here.

      • DJ Lodose

        Once again your wrong. The signal coming from a direct line as opposed to broken pieces which then get turned into a signal is not progress. It is getting better but it is not the quality that we should expect.

      • Scott Curry

        Don’t confuse a dongle with an adapter. And if you think wireless sound quality if ‘not on par’ with wired, then you haven’t really looked into it lately.

      • DJ Lodose

        Actually I have. I listen and make music every single day for a minimum of 4 to 5 hours for over 30 years. The sound quality is not on par. Anytime there is a break in a signal it will always lose quality.

      • DJ Lodose

        I don’t need to look into it. I live and experience it everyday. Wireless is good for those of you who accept mediocrity.

      • DJ Lodose

        Why should I need an adapter in 2016?

      • Scott Curry

        You DON’T! But you’re the jackass talking about being ‘forced’ to buy something while there are many different options. Deal with progress or live in the past. The choice is YOURS. Jesus get it through your thick skull!

      • DJ Lodose

        Its not progress if you are making sound quality worse and having to use adapters, dongles, etc to enjoy this progress you are bent on. That’s what your small minded brain fails to comprehend. You need an adapter if you want to charge and listen at the same time. We didn’t need any adapter to get great sound quality and charge at the same time. Explain to me Dr. Seuss why is that progress?

      • Scott Curry

        Maybe you missed it when CD-ROMs were removed for the sake of progress, which would make sense since you sound like you’re about 12 years old.

        What happened was, it forced developers and USB technology itself to move forward faster.

        Since you haven’t passed the 4th grade yet, that means PROGRESS.

        The point here is simple: You’re not ‘forced’ to do anything. You don’t like where it’s headed, don’t go along with it. Switch to a phone or device that provides your age-old technology of a headphone jack. Use the provided dongle or don’t. Use the lightning headphones provided (that provide much superior sound quality, btw). Use the built-in speakers. SO many different options instead of…as you said…being ‘forced’ to go wireless.

        School’s out, Junior.

      • DJ Lodose

        You are obviously an old turd since you spend all your time on Disqus with the obnoxious “air of superioity” Apple even said they want people to go wireless. That is like me asking you to leave my home with a passive aggressive tone. Quality and convenience. They should have left the 3.5mm jack. Who was it hurting? Realistically? Who?

      • Scott Curry

        It hurt progress. It was a decades-old technology. Welcome to the new world. I can’t wait to come back here after Android phones start following suit…

      • DJ Lodose

        Hurt progress? How does it hurt progress? Bluetooth is getting better but it is not on par with the standard 3.5mm sound. Its a direct signal when you use a 3.5mm jack. Basic science and math would reason that the quality dissipates once its sent to a Bluetooth device.

      • Scott Curry

        Just give up troll. You already lost this battle.

      • DJ Lodose

        Lmao…if you say so trolladite. Your no response with no fact is all the validation I needed.

      • DJ Lodose

        It can’t hurt progress if it isn’t progressive itself. When will your little teeny weeny brain can comprehend fact and science. The 3.5mm jack is the best sound quality you can experience. Bluetooth does not match it. Yet.

    • Kzboi

      Yea because EarPods are the only headphones that will work. Troll hater fail.

    • Shadowelite123

      Right. Because its obvious that Apple made wireless headphones first.

  • Adan

    Jesus Christ people! Just give your damn iPhone a break! I consider myself a heavy user, yet when the time comes to charge it, I DO OTHER THINGS!

    • Ricardo Cuevas

      I agree with you. People is overreacting with the fact they can’t charge the phone and listen to music at the same time, but with the iPhone 7 the battery should last you the whole day leaving you room to charge it at night. I think getting rid of the 3.5mm jack was a good call. The wireless is the future.

      • itelebisyon

        some people say that they use iphone for long drive while charging and listenin to music guess what!! they can get damn mp3 player for cheap that has aux and keep both charging while doing long drive… lol damn haters want everything to do everything for them.. wont be suprise if they complain the iPhone removed the washing maching feature.

      • Shadowelite123

        Or use the USB feature that most cars within a 10 year radius have as a standard. The USB option syncs information to your car just as the AUX cord does and it charges your phone as well.

      • DJ Lodose

        Its called convenience. Why are we being forced to change our way of doing things? Wireless is great when I want to go wireless. Not because a good way to make money is to have as many pieces as possible to lose or break. Bluetooth audio compression also sucks. Fact.

      • Scott Curry

        You’re such a troll here…I’m sorry I wasted any time on you. Obviously intelligence is way over your head…

      • DJ Lodose

        Said the troll

    • Alberto Espinal

      Or use a Bluetooth headphone and that’s it, I haven’t use wired headphones in a while, it’s just people looove to find excuses to trash others, is just how the world works.

      • baxtus

        Yeah, because you know, I love throwing money away on crappy bluetooth headphones when my wired headphones work so much better for so much less /S

      • Alberto Espinal

        Well now that’s your problem

      • baxtus

        Nah, it’s Apple’s problem because many people will agree with me

      • Steven Honey

        get the iPhone 5SE then, it has a headphone jack still.

      • baxtus

        Nah, I’ll get a samsung galaxy

      • Shadowelite123

        Lol then stop getting those trashy options. LG has some great bluetooth headphones that last quite a while and offer great compatibility along with decent battery life. Also in case you get pissed about this like each fanboy that gets on here complaining, theres no lag compared to wired headphones.

      • baxtus

        Way too expensive to be worth it, especially when my 10 dollar headphones don’t need to be charged

      • DJ Lodose

        If you can throw away money then please do so. Bluetooth audio compression is crap. Look it up or experience it.

      • MMA Rules

        I have the Bose SoundSport ones and they sound amazing

      • DJ Lodose

        Nah. Its not only about trashing others. Its about the complete disregard to the consumer who uses the iPhone. Wireless is great for convenience. Wired is where the quality is at.

      • Scott Curry

        THEN USE THE WIRED HEADPHONES PROVIDED YOU DUMBASS

    • John

      Long commutes with a non Bluetooth enabled car. Can’t use aux cable and charge.

      • Shadowelite123

        If you have a usb port, it will work the same way as an AUX cord.

    • Alejandro Maximo Marez

      I happen to have an iPad and a Mac Mini and an iPod touch and an Apple TV (I may have a problem lol)… so any texts or calls and basically ANYTHING else can be easily continued onto my iPad. It’s almost like Apple was shooting for some sort of device ecosystem with perfect synchronicity 😉

    • baxtus

      I use my phone when I do other things, I am a heavy audiobook consumer, so when I drive, I listen to an audiobook, when I’m at work I listen to an audiobook, when I study or do chores at home, I listen to an audiobook

      the ability to listen and charge at the same time is a must for me

      Thankfully Samsung isn’t as obnoxious as Apple

      • Mb

        samsung will copy the idea and remove the aux in the next model of galaxy 🙂

      • baxtus

        And then I’ll go with another company

      • Mb

        no you will not bcs you are moronic shitsung follower…hehehe

      • baxtus

        Nope, I don’t have company loyalty, I have quality loyalty

      • Mb

        like what samsung that makes cars to burn ? i have 3 phones and only one of them is iphone so i dont have any company loyalty….lmao…dont make me laugh mate… 🙂

      • Shadowelite123

        Wow nice that sounds like an interesting life. You spend more time on your own device complaining on a blog than in the real world.

      • baxtus

        Considering what is going on in the “real world”, I think I’ve made a good choice

  • tiltdown

    for me the jackless iPhone 7 is not a big deal. Do you really charge and listen to music on your earphones? But tbh i dont like the new ‘airbud’.

    • ravinigga

      No that is excuse for a lot of people.
      But in real life they don’t do it.

      • Pj Hickey

        i do it everyday at work, listen to the radio and use my battery pack to charge,

        but i still bought the 7 plus, will need to find bluetooth earphones with 10+hours

      • Shadowelite123

        I doubt theres any bluetooth earphones with 10+ hours. Maybe some headphones, but earphones don’t have the space to fit that much battery. It depends on design and implementation of low power technology.

      • baxtus

        I do it every day at work, while studying, while driving (I have a sports car from the mid 2000’s, no bluetooth capability)

      • Shadowelite123

        A usb port works the same way as an AUX cord.

      • baxtus

        If my car had a USB port then that would make sense, but it doesn’t

      • DJ Lodose

        Its called convenience. Why do I need to worry about my headphones being charged? Why can’t I charge my phone at my desk while having my headphones in so I don’t disturb anyone around me? I love Apple but this is ridiculous. I need dongles and adapters? WTF

    • baxtus

      Yes, all the time

  • lou111

    AirPods are great but at this moment they should be in box with iPhone, absolutely. As option we should have Beats. We have end of 2016 Apple…

    • Vondrook4

      That would be nice, but considering they cost Apple more to make, they wouldn’t eat that cost and would likely pass it onto the user and make the phones $50 or so more expensive

  • I Honestly did not know about the first choice, however the big losers here are the folks with older automobiles. Some need the Aux connection and rely on the lightning port to charge. They’ll need The $40 Belkin and Apples adapter. The combination just looks ugly. The folks not keen on using Bluetooth headphones will lose here too.

    • askep3

      Or, you know, use the adapter Apple included in the box??? Or buy one for only $9 (composted to the other belkin solution or whatever)

    • YewDontSay

      Just get a Bluetooth to aux adapter for less than 20 bucks.

      • People were complaining because they don’t want the adapters I guess. I don’t mind the Jack not being there myself..

      • Blip dude

        Know where I can find one that last more than 4 hours?? That’s actually a serious question. I found one by iON but that only had 4.5 hours of playback. Was hoping to find something around the 8 hour range.

      • tariq

        The LG wireless earphones that go around your neck, last long. That’s what I heard so if u wanna check there site, hopefully u find what u need

      • Blip dude

        I am not talking about earphones here, I’m talking about cassette Bluetooth dongles for older model cars.

      • tariq

        Oops.

      • YewDontSay

        Get one that plugs into the cigarette adapter and it lasts forever.

  • DD™

    Time for people to come into the 21st century. I remember the complaints when Apple went from the 30 pin to the Lightning cable. Next year when the iPhone has wireless charging, everyone will be thinking that wires are so old school.

    • Rowan09

      Yep.

    • M_Hawke

      So it’s only when Apple does it, then it’s real?

      • YewDontSay

        Yup

      • Crim Nino

        Well it seems everyone else followed apple path, battery you can’t remove no more (many people bragged about) 64 bit that most dissed Apple for but now has it, different connector others went their own route and soon the 3.5 jack gone.

      • M_Hawke

        While the things you listed are true, there are things in which Apple was the follower and things in which they have yet to implement.

      • baxtus

        For the moronic apple sheep

      • Mb

        or shitsung follower like you..hehe

      • baxtus

        Nope, Samsung still has the headphone jack

      • Mb

        yeah but no metter how many technologies shitsung copy you still follow the laggy phone…lol ps.the next galaxy wil not have aux conector and you wull buy it ans say how great shitsung is…lol

  • jakeopp

    So basically…

    1. Overpriced dock

    2. Buy new headphones, can be pretty expensive if sound quality is important

    3. You must be joking

  • For the picture used in the 4th section, does anyone know what app that is? It kinda looks like an updated Traktor DJ app (which would be great!) but I am not sure

    • Guilherme 

      I’m almost pretty sure it’s Edjing Pro DJ MIX. App Store pic looks identical.

  • tom2tommy

    Just, stupid…

  • Crim Nino

    I figured dual lighting was around the corner and that’s the route I will take and have the best of both worlds.

  • Y2J

    It’s gonna be a pain having to buy multiple splitters/carry one around. I was actually charging my phone in my car today while using my aux cord

  • Y2J

    I’ll need to buy an adapter just charge and watch porn…

  • Crim Nino

    Why do people keep saying buy new headphones? Why do people keep saying apple did this to make money while including a free adapter? Let’s see buy a new car radio or buy new car. Aftermarket radios are cheep with Bluetooth. Aux is dead. Bring my back records, tapes and cds. Stuff just dies and we move on passed it. Bring back the old school flip phones!!! That I can throw off a roof and it still work with no case. I remember when people complained about lighting and actually favored the old school connector that was big, goes in one way and useless. Bring back green screens instead of color screens …see how far we are along?

  • RK

    Who uses EarPods while charging iPhone and sticking sound while it charges. Even watching videos is recommended with wireless sepakers / headphones.

    • John Smith

      “Who uses EarPods while charging iPhone and sticking sound while it charges”

      The people who are complaining?

    • tariq

      People who drive long distance. Like me

      • itelebisyon

        simple, plug a bluetooth transmitter to ur car stereo..about what? 10-20$ on amazon.. pair ur ip7 with ur transmitter, plug ur damn lightning cable to ur charge of you go.

      • tariq

        Or just have an Aux plug.

  • ready1take1

    I’m hoping a 3rd party creates something like this. Belkin is coming out with one that has 2 lightning ports, but wouldn’t it make more sense if one of those was a 3.5mm jack?

    • Niclas

      I’m pretty sure someone will…

  • Alejandro Maximo Marez

    I happen to have an iPad and a Mac Mini and an iPod touch and an Apple TV (I may have a problem lol)… so any texts or calls and basically ANYTHING else can be easily continued onto my iPad. It’s almost like Apple was shooting for some sort of device ecosystem with perfect synchronicity 😉

    Just give your damn phone a break, go outside (yard, balcony, etc…) and just decompress. If only for 10 mins, Sever your connection from the insurmountable amount of information being beam straight into your phone

    …But keep your iPad close, we’re not on the Oregon trail after-all.

  • Tim Myxa

    i have a battery case with lightning connection
    works perfectly and you can charge and listen at the same time

  • baxtus

    Apple truly trusts in the stupidity of it’s customers

    • How so? By removing 100 year old tech to give their customers additional features with the resulting space? Innovating in the bluetooth arena to make paring, connections and transfers easier and more reliable for the customers? Or by giving away free adapters and lightning earbuds to all their customers?

      Considering this iPhone is already on a waiting list until November I’d say there are a lot of “stupid people”. At least we have you to enlighten us 😉

      • baxtus

        What additional features?

        They are removing one major feature, being able to charge and listen at the same time.

        And the stuff you give as benefits are largely useless, my current earbuds are amazing, awesome noise cancellation and call quality, the apple buds are useless to me.

        I’ve never had any trouble connecting to Bluetooth devices with my phone, so it’s not an added benefit to me.

        They took away something I use all the time though.

        I’ll be glad to enlighten you.

      • Bigger battery, additional speakers, better haptic system etc. There certainly isn’t a large gaping hole inside with nothing to fill it.

        Also, bluetooth now pairs easily and automatically transfers pairing of the devices to anything you want to listen to among other improvements. It goes above and beyond what most other devices do in terms of convenience.

        Finally as this article points out, there are in face ways that you can charge and listen to music. Docks, adapters battery cases, bluetooth etc. The point is, that EVERYONE can continue to use their phones the same way they were before if they want to. But for those that don’t need the old tech there are improvements being made in those areas too.

        I’m just saying. Buying this phone doesn’t make someone stupid. (and I say that as someone who hasn’t bought the phone)

      • baxtus

        None of what you mentioned required the removal of the jack, there were other workarounds.

        Or they could have given 2 lightning ports, one for charging and one for listening.

        I already get automatic pairing to my devices.

        Yeah so you have to pay extra and lug around extra docks and dongles to get the same feature you had before for free, yeah, not exactly an argument for it not being stupid.

        Okay, perhaps stupid is too strong a word, easily fooled and gullible is probably more accurate, one whose money is soon parted from them.

      • Unfortunately it did. I don’t know if you’ve ever taken apart an iPhone before but there just isn’t room for speakers at the top unless you moved everything down. And since the battery already nearly touched the audio jack the only way to move it down was to shrink the battery. Also, the changes to the home button required the haptic sensor to be moved to where the headphone jack used to be as well.

        Removing that jack allowed additional speakers, and a bigger battery at the same time in a way that just wasn’t possible with the current design without changing the dimensions of the device. Considering that every year more people are moving to wireless audio and asking for better battery and better native audio it seems like this was the best solution.

        For people that wanted two lighting ports there is an adapter for you. For people that want to use their existing audio Apple is giving away free adapters. I figure in the grand scheme of things, paying out an extra $10-20 for an adapter is a small price when I’m already shelling out hundreds for a phone.

        Finally I can’t imagine you’d have to lug around docks and adapters with you. You won’t be charging while on the go unless you have access to a power outlet that follows you around everywhere… in which case… will you be my friend?! But in seriousness the places you would charge and listen would likely be at work, at night, or in the car. Which means if you got a dock for the desk and an adapter for the car you’d be all set. Unless you’re also the kind of person that sleeps with headphones in.

        Personally I don’t have much bluetooth stuff either but I can’t possibly complain that Apple would force me to lug a bunch of extra stuff with me everywhere I go.

        Exactly, change the dimensions, they’ve done it before

        No, it’s an extra charge to keep the same functionality you had before without extra charge, it’s too much at any amount.

        So basically I still have to have extra gear with me at work and in the car, not for me, thanks.

      • Well as an owner of an iPhone 6+ I have to admit I wouldn’t want it any bigger. As is some interactions are a stretch with one hand and any taller would make it top heavy. Andy wider would make it hard to use, and any thicker would make it hard to hold.

        Fun fact though, shortly after the creation of the original iPhone Apple experimented with phones all the way up to 7″ large and started scaling back determining that this was the biggest size they would ever want to go. So personal preference and Apple research would suggest that just change the dimensions wouldn’t be a great idea in the long run. Not to mention that changing screen sizes tends to have negative effects on developers who now have yet another screen size to optimize apps for.

        Well then maybe they are trying to fit too much into the system with current technological limitations, and should pause until technology catches up.

      • Haha, can you imagine the cries from customers if Apple did nothing for a year to make their phone offerings more substantial releases? Apple can’t innovate, Apple is dead, Samsung wins, etc. Sadly we don’t want thicker larger phones, but we want thicker larger batteries, we want more features but we don’t want to give up others, and so on. Ah… the life of a developer.

    Lovely post. I’m sure air travel or any other public transportation will change forever when everyone starts blasting the speakers to listen to music and watch movies while charging the phone. How about mentioning the harmful effects of wireless devices plugged into your brain all day? How about the Deminishing sound quality of wireless speakers? What a terrible idea and an idea that finally shows how much Apple is not concerned by their customers. Just do whatever they want and shove it down every fans throat. It will end some day. Blackberry thought they wil be around forever.

    Get with the times? Upgrade? Wireless is not an upgrade. Its factually a downgrade. Why do I need to shell out more money for something so basic as charging and listening to HD quality with no loss in sound…ever.

    • Scott Curry

      ‘Factually a downgrade’??? Do you know what the words you use even mean?? PLEASE try to explain that bullshit statement.

      • DJ Lodose

        Its not a bullshit statement. We’ve been able to go wireless. So its not an upgrade. Its a downgrade because we can go wireless or wired now without an adapter to charge and listen while wired.. With the new iPhone you need a lightning dock. That sir is a downgrade.

      • DJ Lodose

        Its ok. Obviously your just trolling for the amusement at this point.

      • DJ Lodose

        Upgrade is an improvement. Going wireless is not an upgrade. If you could charge an iPhone wireless then I would say “boom” That’s an upgrade. What part of the English language don’t you comprehend?
