With more and more images showing up online seemingly confirming that the iPhone 7 will not have a 3.5 mm headphones jack, manufacturers are scrambling to accommodate a Lightning port that will allegedly ship with the iPhone 7. One such manufacturer is Chinese company, BeSound, who is promising iPhone 7 users the option to purchase “hi-fi, noise-cancelling Lightning earphones that adapt to your music and the way you hear-by besound [sic].”
Others may be in development, but this is the first model we’ve seen that solidly matches the Lightning port requirement.
Aptly named Thunder, with a Lightning port connecter at the end, these earbuds will supposedly include a “state of the art noise cancellation, revolutionary sound customization and hi-fi quality sound, all with no need for a charger,” a rather large claim. With a standard silver metallic design and very odd futuristic shape, these earphones are powered by an internal hi-fi audio and the iPhone’s Lightning connecter, which gives “every iPhone user the chance to experience lossless sound for the first time.”
On its Indiegogo page, Besound looks to have already surpassed their $10,000 funding goal, with the company currently offering various deals with an estimated shipping date of February 2017.
