Do you hate the way your laptop’s speaker sound and for some reason the earphone jack doesn’t work as well?
Or maybe you have a smartphone that does not have an earphone jack and you do not have the budget to get wireless earphones.
Yes, I remember the sad news that the newer smartphones were ditching the headphone jack. And while iPhone did initially provide a converter, you cannot find it with the recent launches.
You can get an Apple accessory for $9 that does the same thing but the sound quality is average and you cannot use it while charging your phone.
So what does a music lover without wireless earphones do?
Well, it is the StarTech audio headphone adapter to your rescue. This tiny device plugs into the laptop’s or smartphone’s USB-C port, in turn, allowing you to connect your wired earphones with ease.
And guess what, you can run it while you charge your phone as well. Oh, and you can even carry it anywhere you want as it is compact.
Believe it or not, this handy device is the size of a AAA battery which means you can even carry it in your pockets. While there’s a headphone jack at one end, the other end allows you to plug in the charger.
Our team tested it on the Samsung Galaxy smartphone, iPhone, the iMac and it worked like a charm. Though if you are connecting to a laptop, especially a MacBook, note that a 96W power supply could be too much for it to handle.
You’ll also be able to amp up the volume if needed and it works with any and every wired earphone irrespective of its impedance. The bass and treble were clear, in fact, I’ll go ahead and say, it beats some wireless earphones as well.
To top it all, it is pocket-friendly as well as it costs around $30. You can easily purchase it from Amazon or other trusted sellers.
