Are you looking to switch to Apple iPhone7 or iPhone 7S? Well, there is no harm in switching to a better and modern day phone. One thing that you should be aware of, if you do not know already, is that Apple has done away with the 3.5mm audio jack on Apple iPhone 7. Therefore, you will not be able to plug your favorite earphone on the Apple iPhone 7 or 7S device to listen to music or attend calls using headphones. Apple has provided a lighting connector or lighting port to the iPhone 7 and its higher end versions. This has replaced the 3.5mm audio jack port. You need to buy lightning headphones and connect it through the new lightning port to listen to songs or make calls using headphones.

Why Lightning Headphones Are The Best Option?

The ditching of the 3.5mm audio jack port in the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus was not well received in the first place. But, once people started to know more about its benefits and starting using the lightning headphones and the lightning connectors, they started to enjoy what is being offered. The benefits that you will get by using the lightning connectors to connect the all new lightning headphones are as follows.

Better Sound Quality

The sound quality is very much enhanced when you use a lightning headphone as compared to the normal audio jack. The sound you get from the device will be of studio recording quality and not just a CD quality. The bass and the equalizer effects will be enhanced. The lightning headphone manufacturers can now build internal digital-to-analog converters (DACs) to improve sound quality significantly. The manufacturers of lighting headphones get to control the sound quality as the amp and DAC are not built in the iPhones, but the headphones.

Thinner iPhones

You might have noticed that the audio jack that you slot in the headphone port is a pretty big one. By getting rid of this slot, Apple has been able to make the phones thinner and this has given Apple more room to increase the size of the battery. With more space available, there are tons of potential that Apple can exploit in their future phones.

High Tech And Innovative Headphones

The lightning cables have given a new lease of life to the headphone manufacturers as they can create some of the best and innovative headphones to connect with the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The noise cancellation within the headphones will not require power from batteries anymore as they will be getting it from the lightning port on the Apple device. The manufacturers will ensure higher quality audio output through their headphones as they can use DAC and amp inside the headphones now.

This is a bold move by Apple as many of the fake 3.5mm jacks with ear pods will be stopped from being circulated in the market as they cannot be connected to the new Apple iPhone 7. The MFi program and the introduction of the digital connectors for lightning headphones by Apple have paved the way to a new style of listening to quality music from your phones.
