One of the AirPods Max tidbits that we’ve covered is the lack of USB audio, but TwelveSouth’s AirFly Pro accessory solves that issue in one fell swoop. This adapter rocks the standard 3.5mm headphone jack and features built-in Bluetooth connectivity, which allows you to connect your AirPods Max or other Bluetooth headphones wirelessly to any headphone jack.
Released last November, you simply connect your AirPods Max headphones to this wireless adapter over Bluetooth and plug the adapter itself into devices that only have a headphone jack, like airplanes and treadmills, to listen to in-flight movies or the TVs at the gym.
You can use it as an AUX IN adapter for your car, boat, non-Bluetooth speaker and more. As if that wasn’t enough, the tiny accessory lets two people listen to the same audio source. Check out some of the creative ways you can use this adapter in the promotional video below.
If you’d like to wirelessly connect your AirPods Max wherever you go instead of purchasing Apple’s $35 Lightning to 3.5mm cable, plus stream two headphones no matter what you’re connected to, you can do so with the AirFly Pro for only $20 more. This adapter features a 16-hour battery, enough to last you as long as your longest coast-to-coast flight.
If you’d like to use your AirPods Max headphones with studio setups or Hi-Fi equipment, you’ll need both an AirFly accessory along with an additional 3.5mm (1/8″) to 1/4″ adapter.
You can get your AirFly Pro for $50 from TwelveSouth.com, Amazon.com and elsewhere.
