First, let me say that I understand and accept that Apple will not put a headphone jack back into the iPhone and will most likely eventually remove it from iPads and The Mac as well.

However, I also accept that shitty Bluetooth audio is the only solution. But when the Bluetooth headphone battery drains I am often left with only two choices; stop listening to music until the headphone battery is charged or go on a treasure hunt for the highly misplaced “pig tail” adapter that Apple included with the iPhone 7.

This morning while in the middle of a music inspired session at the keyboard — weekends are for server patching and Lightroom photo editing — the battery on the headphones dumped and I reached for the wired headphones wishing I had another set of charged headphones. And I realized I had a third option.

So … I welcome recommendations for quality wireless over the ear headphones. And NO! Beats do not count. I love my Grado Labs SR60‘s but I have used them less and less since I got the iPhone 7. Using the adapter is a PITA. I want something with the quality of the SR60 but … wireless. And I want to be able to charge the device while listening to music. And I want the option to go wired when I want to.

  2. I don’t know the quality of the Grados you have (or any Grado, really), but I got a pair a little while ago that sound really nice. They’re model “E-7” by Cowin (this specific model on Amazon: http://amzn.to/2wilPAr). They’re great for a number of reasons, such as they go AROUND the ear, not pressing ON them. They’re bluetooth, with SELECTABLE active noise cancellation (not always in noise-cancelling mode), built-in microphone and some remote controls (volume, answer/hangup I think). The cups also turn to make them flatter, thus making then not buldge noticeably when packing them or putting them in a bag. They also charge via a micro-USB, so HURRAY for standards! Finally, and here’s the kicker, they have a 3.5mm jack to use in wired mode, if the battery’s dead, or you just want them wired!

    • Hi Hugo. The Grado SR60 are considered good quality headphones. The Grado family has been making headphones for decades. The E-7 seems sleek and I love the fact that they can be charge with standard micro-USB and can be used in wired mode. I’ll take a look. Thanks for the recommendation.
