Many people are wondering what Lightning headphones are these days. We’ve compiled all the answers for you in this article.
What is Lightning?
Lightning is a port connector and cable technology invented by Apple for use in its iPhone and iPad products. It is both shorter and thinner than the legacy old 30 pin iPod connector, more durable, and is also reversible, meaning it doesn’t matter which way you plug it into your device– there’s no wrong way. It also can transfer both data and power faster than the old legacy 30 pin adapter.
What are Lightning headphones?
Lightning can transfer data to a computer and charge your iPhone and iPad but its specification also allows audio (such as music) to be carried over it. As a result, some manufacturers are now making headphones with a Lightning connector at the end of it, instead of a normal old 1/8th inch headphone jack, that you can plug directly into the Lightning port on your iPhone or iPad– without using the headphone jack.
