I recently read an article on yahoo talking about the death of the iPhone 7 headphone jack. It is the first phone that got rid off the headphone jack, and even though Apple got rid off it, the new iPhones includes an adapter in order to be able to use other earphone. I find it funny how such a phone could get rid off it, even though there are a lot of wireless headphones out in the market, it is something that people still use. Instead of having the headphone jack, they added another side of speakers. I have also heard that music sounds louder because of this new feature that the new iPhones have.

As I kept on reading the article, the writer also said that now he finds it difficult to charge his phone and listen to his iPhone because the charger and earphones use the same port; it has become an issue for many. If someone wants to use their new iPhone earphones with their laptop; it will be impossible because it uses the lightning connector. Now the person needs to be carrying two different earphones in order to use one for their phone and the other one to be able to use with their laptop. Even though, the iPhone 7 seems to be a wonderful phone, the headphone jack seems to be the number 1 issue for many. If by any chance someone loses the adapter that the phone brings, the consumer has to be spend around $10 more in order to be able to buy another one.

I find it difficult for many people to spend around $159 on the new airpods. First of all, it is expensive for such a tiny accessory and in the end it is easier for someone to lose it. I do not know how good quality they are, but for the price, it better be good ones. If by any chance, they are not worth it, for that price anyone can get better earphones/headphones for that price. Hopefully, as the years go by they change the design of the earphones, because i truly dislike them especially the airpods.
