(Before It's News)


Not everyone was happy about Apple removing the 3.5mm jack from the latest iPhone. Understandable if you sunk good money into a pair of expensive, wired cans because, of course, we can never settle for anything less than perfect sound playback. There are workarounds for the lack of a jack by using a Bluetooth connector or simply buying wireless headphones.

Well, good news. If you like your headphones, you can keep your headphones. “THEY WILL HAVE TO PRY THEM FROM MY COLD, DEAD HANDS.” I’m with you, friend, I’m with you. Podo Labs has you covered with their Jack Bluetooth connector, which offers a simpler design and a little benny over most others currently on the market.

Podo’s Jack is claimed to deliver the “best sound quality” porting hi-fi audio over from any Bluetooth-enabled source, including smartphones, tablets, PCs, and watches. What’s more, you can also transmit te audio to nearly any sound-capable devices by connecting Jack to the device’s aux ports. And the bonus? You can even sync and share that audio with anyone (provided they also have a Jack).

So what’s under the hood regarding technology? The device sports CSR’s 8670 audio SoC, which packs Bluetooth 4.1, 16MB of eFlash and 80MHz DSP in a 1″ x 2″ x.25″ package. It also uses the same aptX protocol found in higher-end audio devices and is powered by a 300mAh Li-Ion battery said to provide playback for as long as 12 hours.

Podo Labs crowd-funded Jack sucessfully on both Kickstarter and Indiegogo. It’s now available on Indiegogo for $29 or $49 for a pair, $95 for a 4-pack and other combos with headphone and case or in bulk. By no means is the Jack the ultimate solution for those who prefer the sound of hi-fi wired headphones but the ease of use and price make it a very attractive option for porting your tunes quickly.
