Jabra has no plans for Lightning headphones, yet

We already knew that Apple was doing away with the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 even before it was official announced. This has caused a great deal of anger from people, although we already know the likes of Belkin has a solution with their Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar, as it allows you to charge your iPhone and listen to music at the same time with your headphones with that jack connection.

We already know that Apple ships a pair of their earphones with a Lightning connection, although we know they are pushing more towards wireless, hence the reason to release the AirPods next month. We also know that Jabra has their own solution being released next month with the Elite Sport, although we cannot see any Jabra Lightning headphones in their lineup, and so reached out to them to ask if they had any plans to do so.

One of the reasons we asked them was because there are already a huge number of Lightning headphones on the market, so therefore assumed that Jabra would do so as well, although if you were one of those hoping for a positive answer, then you might be dissapointed.

Here’s what they had to say:At Jabra we are interested in delivering solutions that fit the market. Of course, we will not disregard the possibility of a Lightning connected headphones, but there are no solid plans on this at the moment. With Apple having just removed the jack and Jabra having just announced our true wireless earbuds (Jabra Elite Sport), it is clear that things in this field are changing. In fact, everyday headphone usage across the board is changing with users now switching more frequently between calls, music and other media. Many are already switching to a wireless solution and in doing so, the need for a jack becomes irrelevant. This move is not new, but it will certainly now gain momentum. Lightning connection is now just another possibility to stay with wired headphones – but this will not change the move to wireless, as we see it. So this whole scenario is not about Apple removing the jack and now using Lightning connection. It’s about upgrading to meet new media consumption and everybody should be looking forward to a life less tangled”.

We are not really sure if this is what you wanted to hear or not, but it does make sense – because who wants wires in this day and age?
