"Hey other bad ideas I'm let you finish, but the new iPhone not having a headphone jack is the worst idea of all time." - top twitter from Ben Rector

Apple announced its "best phone ever" - iPhone 7/Plus in San Francisco on Sept. 7, which accept pre-orders since Sept.9 and will officially launch on Sept. 16. Just as expected, the two models come with water resistant body, dual lens camera (on iPhone 7 Plus), new Home button, up to 256GB capacity, better battery life and two new black color options.

#Way 1 - [iPhone 7/Plus No Headphone Jack Fixed] Listen to Music with Wireless AirPods

Can you do charging and listening at the same time: Yes
Price: $159 (come out in October)

AirPod, a Bluetooth-like thing, delivers the smartest iPhone music listening and talking ever with Apple-made W1 chip (appears to be based on Bluetooth 4.2) built in. When you put them in your ear, music starts. And if either is out, audio pauses. Double-tap any one can activate Siri for help. Battery power is not so costing, too. 5 hours listening only need a single charge.

It's available for Apple Watch, iPad and Mac. See some interesting iPhone 7 AirPods joking online:

• I don't even own the new iPhone yet but I can guarantee you I have already lost one of my AirPods ear buds.
• I sure hope the iPhone 7 comes with a "Find My AirPods" feature when your wireless earbud falls out of your ear.
• Siri, can u help me locate the AirPods that just fell out of my right ear.
• If my dog swallows an AirPods will it become an AirBud?

Similarly, general Bluetooth headphones can work it out, too. But they are not so recommended merely due to the relatively larger power consumption.

#Way 2 - [iPhone 7 No Headphone Jack Fixed] Listen to Music with Wired Lighting Headphone

Can you do charging and listening at the same time: No
Price: More expensive than AirPods

To those who have no interest in Apple's AirPods for iPhone 7 music listening, lighting headphones are really good bets. Apple launched one itself in 2015, and that's Audeze EL-8 Titanium ($799.95). There are many other well-received cable lighting Heaphones for your reference:
• Philips Fidelio M2L, $199.99;
• Audeze Sine, $499;
• Sony MDR-1ADAC, $399.99.

Here, DAC (digital audio converter) is a tech you have to know. Only the lighting headphone with DAC tech built in can convert digital audio into an analog audio signal to be sent to headphones for playback. >>AirPids vs EarPods

#Way 3 - [iPhone 7 No Headphone Jack Fixed] Listen to Music with Headphones via Adapter

Can you do charging and listening at the same time: No
Price: Free in iPhone 7/Plus pack

For the uninitiated users who take DAC lighting headphones too clumsy or expensive, three alternative solutions here:
• Apple EarPods ($29) + Apple Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter ($9) + USB DAC (additional purchase )
• Apple EarPods + Apple Lightning to USB 3 Adaptor for connecting unpowered USB DACs ($39)
• Apple EarPods + iPhone Lightning Dock with DAC and audio out jack ($39.00)

This time, iPhone 7/Plus will be shipped with a free Lightning-to-3.5mm dongle and EarPods that feature a Lightning connector for no-headphone-jack transition. That's to say, you need to buy another USB DAC for outputing the audio on EarPods. Of course since the iPhone cannot be charged after plugging in the adapter, you must ensure to charge up your iPhone 7 if you're driving or on a flight.
