Phones are other music players are well down the path of wireless transmission of sound. But what if you’re somewhat attached, as it were, to a particular set of wired earphones? This bureau is well and truly tethered to a set of Bose Quiet Comfort 20s and would have a hard time abandoning them up given their excellent performance (not to mention their price).
Thankfully a few enterprising manufacturers provide adapters to bridge the wireless gap. A bureau favourite is the BlueAnt Ribbon, but sadly it’s been discontinuted.
The keen buyer may be able to find one to purchase, but what ever the BlueAnt Ribbon’s availability is, it is a rapidly decreasing one.
The Blueant Ribbon used to be gear review site Wirecutter’s top pick, but given the Ribbon’s discontinuation, Wirecutter now recommends the difficult to pronounce FiiO μBTR.
Which ever the choice, legacy earphones users should be kept in the loop for sound for a little while longer.
