Feature Friday: Bluetooth Headphones

With Apple’s much anticipated announcement that they are eliminating the headphone jack on iPhone 7 and moving to bluetooth as the default way to connect your headphones, I figured we would revisit a topic I’ve brought up here a bunch. It has even been a feature friday – a couple years ago.

I’ve been using bluetooth headphones on and off for over ten years. As bluetooth has gotten better and more reliable, wireless headphones have gotten easier to use.

All of that said, I don’t currently use bluetooth headphones with my phone. I’ve gone back and forth from wired to wireless to wired and right now I am in wired mode.

I am going to get the iPhone 7 and when I do, I will give the airpods a try. I expect they will be a quality product. If not, Apple has really messed up. And I don’t expect that to be the case.

I’m curious what all of you think about bluetooth headphones and what you think of Apple’s decision to do away with wired headphones.
