If you’re looking to lose the cable, but you don’t want to give up the comfort and quality of your wired headphones, then check out Airmode.
AirMode and is an advanced Bluetooth device that converts dual entry, wired headphones into wireless. It uses AAC, aptX and Bluetooth 4.1 and converts wired headphones from top brands, such as Beats, Monster, Bang & Olfusen, Marshall, Sol Republic, and loads more.
Along with wireless capability, Airmode brings all the mod cons to your headphones, including: control for your music tracks and volume, control for Siri, Google Assistant and Amazon Echo. Airmode has two built-in high-definition microphones with active noise control (ANC) so you can use voice commands and take phone calls. The device is also equipped with NFC for quick and easy pairing.
Airmode offers an operating range of up to 10 meters, 6 hours of playtime (battery life) with a two-hour charge time, a water and sweat-resistant build, and it weighs just 12 grams.
There’s also an earphone version of Airmode; suitable for brands such as Shure, Onkyo, Pioneer, SONY, Campfire Audio, Westone, and more. Westone released their own Bluetooth cable earlier this year with a price tag of around 149 USD – about $100 more than Airmode are charging over at Kickstarter.

The estimated shipping date for Kickstarter backers is March 2017.
