AirFly connects wireless headphones to wired-only devices

The company says that the battery lasts up to eight hours.

Fortunately, Twelve South just released a Bluetooth dongle - AirFly ($40) - that's specifically created to solve this problem.

AirFly is ideal for pairing true wireless earbuds, AirPods, on an airplane's in-flight entertainment system, but the little dongle can be used with any other wireless headphones and earphones, like Bose QC35 II or Sony's 1000XM2, and in other situations. It is pretty straightforward where all you need to do is plug the AirFly into the port and then pair your wireless headphones with it and you're good to go. Want to hear the gym cardio machine's TV audio with your wireless headphones? These can be nice, but they don't offer the same compact and easily portable package as the AirFly, and they're also on the pricey side.

Accessory maker Twelve South has announced the launch of its newest product, AirFly, which lets you connect any wireless headphones-such as Apple's AirPods-to a wired headphone jack. AirFly is priced at US$39.99 and is available at the Twelve South website, Amazon, along with InMotion stores and Best Buy kiosks in airports.
