You can connect the AirPods to in-flight entertainment systems with this adapter
Accessory maker Twelve South has launched AirFly, a small adapter which can be used to pair your wireless earbuds to wired headphone jacks.
With AirFly, you can connect your wireless earbuds/headphones to the headphone jacks of in-flight entertainment systems, treadmills, ellipticals and stationary bikes.
While it is designed for the AirPods, Twelve South says it works with any wireless earbuds or headphones. Pairing your wireless earbuds with AirFly is easy:
- Plug the AirFly into the headphone jack
- Press "pair" button on your wireless earbuds
- AirFly will connect to your wireless earbuds via Bluetooth
The AirFly adapter is about the size of the AirPod charging case, and comes with a built-in battery which lasts up to 8 hours on a single charge. You can re-charge the AirFly adapter via USB.
