Apple iPhone without a headphone jack? – The 19th Century plug that’s still being used – BBC News

Apple is a game changer for sure, but not having a headphone jack… that sucks. I don’t use earbuds – can’t stand having something wedged in my ears.

I WON’T let G use earbuds as I don’t want her hearing damaged. Earbuds have been linked to hearing loss in children, teens and adults.

I use over the ear headphones. I didn’t pay big bucks for them but they work fine and I like them. Nice simple, 70’s style over the ear headphones. – BEHRINGER HPX6000 by Behringer http://amzn.to/1TPwp6M

It also means companies like PAYPAL and SQUARE will need to make new equipment. Any product that relies on that jack will just be out of luck.

I have a pair of good quality bluetooth over the ear headphones, I guess I need to try to start using them… UGHHHHH…

The 3.5mm jack is a rare example of technology that has stood the test of time, writes Chris Stokel-Walker.
