Adapter allows 3.5mm devices to send audio via Bluetooth

AirPods might just be the most convenient wireless headphones money can buy. But because they rely on Bluetooth, you can’t use them with everything. This little adapter from RHA hopes to change that.
The Wireless Flight Adapter plugs into any 3.5mm headphone jack to make it wireless. It’ll work with in-flight entertainment systems — as its name suggests — as well as the Nintendo Switch, TVs, old iPods, and more.

The Wireless Flight Adapter comes fitted with two headphone jacks; it’s main purpose is to allow you to use AirPods — or any other wireless headphones — with in-flight entertainment systems. That’s not it’s only purpose, though.

You can use just one headphone jack at a time, which means the Wireless Flight Adapter can be connected to almost anything. That includes the Switch, a home stereo system, and even gym equipment.

Here is another option by TwelveSouth (Apple accessories focused company) that is a bit cheaper at $40.

pRICE,

Devices like that have been readily available from a slew of companies for much less $$$. One notable difference is the RHA adapter has dual headphone jacks. In reality, I doubt most people will ever use the second jack. Save the bucks and use it towards a second adapter so each person can have their own.

The current AirFly by TwelveSouth is only Bluetooth 4.1.

I bought an Auraltek ABC01F adapter for $32 about two years ago. Pretty good range, 10 to 12 hour battery life and it works as both transmitter and receiver (turn powered speakers into Bluetooth receiver).

If I got one today, I would be tempted to get one of the TaoTronics Bluetooth 5.0 models. They range from $30 (occasionally on sale for under $26) for a RX/TX, to one with a TOSLINK input for $50.
