While wireless headphones and earbuds are gaining in popularity, there are still more of the wired variety on the market. With newer phones coming out and ditching the headphone jack altogether, not everyone is going to want to replace their favourite wired headphones with wireless or USB-C ones.
Griffin has launched the iTrip Clip Bluetooth Audio Adapter which allows users to wirelessly connect wired headphones to any Bluetooth capable smartphone. Simply pair the iTrip Clip to your smartphone, plug your wired headphones or earbuds into the device, and you’re good to go.
“iTrip Clip ensures users can continue using their favorite 3.5mm headphones, with no worries about if their new smartphone eliminated the headphone jack,” said Andrew Biddle, Category Manager of Power at Griffin. “Not only can our iTrip Clip make any pair of headphones wireless, it also puts the convenience of a Bluetooth sound system into any car.”
Features of the iTrip Clip include:
- Converts any earbuds or headphones to wireless Bluetooth Headphones
