The problem with wireless headphones is that there are some devices that they might not necessarily work with. A good example would be in the airplane where for the most part, most inflight infotainment systems do not provide Bluetooth connectivity, which means that you won’t be able to connect wireless headphones to them.


However the folks at Twelve South are hoping to change that with the launch of the AirFly. This is essentially an adapter for interfaces that require a wired connection that gives it wireless connectivity. It is pretty straightforward where all you need to do is plug the AirFly into the port and then pair your wireless headphones with it and you’re good to go.

Now this is definitely not the first adapter of its kind, but if you’re not comfortable with no-brand adapters then perhaps Twelve South’s offering might be of interest to you. The company is claiming that the built-in battery should last up to 8 hours and from the way the device has been branded, it is clear that Twelve South is aiming this at AirPods users, although given that it is Bluetooth at the end of the day, any Bluetooth headphones should play nicely with it. It is priced at $40 and is available via Amazon.
