Griffin’s iTrip Clip will let you hold on to the past for awhile longer

Like it or not, the days of wired earphones, headphones and earbuds are numbered. Why? Because, iPhone 7. Next week Apple is going to officially announce the iPhone 7 and it will not have a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Motorola Moto Z beat them to the punch on being the first smartphone without a headphone jack, but when Apple does something, it means more. Yes, I’m being both sarcastic and realistic when I say that.

So what do you do if you still want to use your favorite pair of wired headphones with a device that does not have a headphone jack? Or what if you want to convert your wired headphones into wireless headphones so you’ll appear to slightly less old-fashioned than you really are? One solution is to buy Griffin’s new iTrip Clip Bluetooth Audio Adapter. It’s a small device with a built-in clip, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth and media control buttons. I think you can put two and two together and understand what it does. If not… It’s an adapter that turns wired headphones into Bluetooth headphones.

Interested? Head over to Griffin to read more about it. The iTrip Clip will be priced at $19.99 and will be available for ordering soon.

    These devices would be so much better if they had a physical switch, like the kinivo bte40.

    I have the jumbl version of this and the button layout is very intuitive, but pushing and holding the button and hoping it connects/disconnects properly (trying to re-pair if held too long or pausing instead of shutting off if held not long enough) is annoying.

    The kinivo build quality is pretty low compared to this, but a little super glue fixes that. Also, the audio is slightly lower (little hiss) than the jumbl (or whatever rebrand it is), but the little switch on the kinivo is so much better than the push and hold method of pretty much every other bluetooth audio receiver. If this (and others like it) had a little switch I would rather buy this because of the button layout than the kinivo even if it cost more.

    Not for nothing, but Motorolla added the jack back in on the Moto Z Play edition
