Twelve South Intros AirFly Bluetooth to 3.5mm for AirPods Twelve South 'AirFly' Lets You Connect AirPods and More to Any Wired Headphone Jack

Wireless headphones like AirPods offer a lot of benefits, but they do also have some drawbacks - one of which is you can't use them with in-flight entertainment systems, gym TVs and the like.

Twelve South has made a name for itself by designing pretty and practical products that perfectly complement our Apple devices. This is essentially an adapter for interfaces that require a wired connection that gives it wireless connectivity.

The miniature white box, hardly bigger than your AirPods case, connects to anything with a 3.5mm headphone jack to provide the wireless connection needed to pair your AirPods.

Backstreet Boys begin their 'next chapter' with new song
About the song, the boyband's Kevin Richardson says: "The minute we heard this song we knew it was special". But the song quickly picks up to match the catchy tunes Backstreet Boys fans come to love.

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.

So you're on a plane or in a gym, faced with a 3.5mm headphone port, and suddenly realise your fancy wireless AirPods are about as useful to you as someone filling your ears with trifle.

The AirFly is now available on twelvesouth.com and also on Amazon, and is available for $39.99.
