griffin-bt-adaptor

If you’re a victim of a phone that’s dumped its 3.5mm earphone jack, and don’t want to upgrade to a pair of wireless headphones because you’re madly in love with your corded cans, then this could be the accessory for you. Announced overnight, Griffin’s iTrip Clip bluetooth headphone adaptor allows you to use your favourite headphones wirelessly with your phone, without buying new headphones.

Priced at just $34.95, and available at JB HiFi, the iTrip Clip works on Android and iOS, and — once set up — automatically connects when turned on to make for a truly seamless user experience. Like most Bluetooth devices, the iTrip Clip can be used up to 15m away from your phone, and contains a rechargeable battery with about six hours of play time (on par with many wireless headphones) and up to 180 hours standby time. You can charge it easily with the included Micro-USB cable.

With included buttons on the device itself, you can control your phone wirelessly, including playback and volume controls, and you can also activate Google Now or Google Assistant, as well as iOS’ Siri remotely.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.

Is it available at JB now? I just searched on their website and nothing came up. I wouldn’t mind one of these.

I gave my dad the clipper from the Ausdroid Shop. Includes a set of headphones you can use and also aptx low latency support. it’s more expensive, but he’s been happy with them using them with his Bose headphones.
disclaimer, i work for ausdroid shop, hence i know about the product. the above is honest opinion regardless.
