You’ve no doubt heard by now (no pun intended) that Apple has done away with the 3.5mm headphone jack on its iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Early adopters aren’t being left out in the cold as Apple is including a set of wired EarPods with Lightning connector as well as a 3.5mm-to-Lightning dongle with each new iPhone.
The end-game here isn’t necessarily to push users towards using Lightning-equipped wired headphones but rather, wireless audio gear featuring its new W1 chip... like its own AirPods.
Early reviews from tech experts suggest they’re nice but far from perfect, but how practical will they be with everyday use? Conan O’Brien has the answer as you’ll see in the clip above. Good stuff (and likely accurate).
