Apple made a “courageous” decision in 2017 to remove the headphone jack from iPhone X. Since then, Apple and most other Android OEMs have removed headphone jacks from their latest flagships. Therefore, the headphone jack lovers have been disappointed in the last few years. Now, we have something which will please all the headphone jack fans out there. There is currently a project on Kickstarter which brings back the headphone jack on their smartphones, sort of. This project is named as Accessport Air and it aims to bring the headphone jack back but wirelessly.
Talking about Accessport Air, it is a wireless adapter which is equipped with Bluetooth 5, aptX / aptX low latency / AAC. Now, the interesting part about this adapter is that is a wireless adapter in itself. So you need to connect this wirelessly first of all. After that, you can plug your wired headphones or earphones to the adapter. Once connected, you can listen to the music on your wired headsets wirelessly.
Now, this wireless adapter comes with a USB Type-C connection. Also, it has a battery life of up to 9 hours. Moreover, if the wireless adapter’s battery is going low then you can charge it and listen to music at the same time as well. The best part about this is that everything happens wirelessly. Also, there is no need to worry about the loss of quality as the Accessport Air supports aptX HD playback.
Talking about this Kickstarter project, it is currently gaining backers which are people who are interested in purchasing this product. Currently, there are 592 backers for this project on the platform and it has already crossed their initial goal of $5000 in funding.
The Accessport Air project has a current fund of $23366 on Kickstarter and it only has 22 days left for the funding to end. Also, the backers of this project have been given an estimation of delivery by May 2019.
