Death To the headphone socket ?

Post by Markie4eyezz » Sat Sep 10, 2016 12:37 am

What is this I'm hearing on the iPhone 7 there is no headphone socket
If this is the future and this is the way forward with iPads are we not screwed.

I use an apogee mic via lightening connector
And headphones in the socket.

How will you monitor ?

I dont see Apple included a free audio interface or some adapater so even more money we have to spend.
I think I'll be sticking with iPad Pro for quite some years if I can.

Interested to hear possible work rounds thanks

Maybe there will be a cable available in the future with a lightning connector and headphone socket, but for now I don't see a work around either.

Hey all,
Check out the i-dSP, will solve the problem, not overly expensive, does require the Lightning to USB adapter as well

Maybe this lightning splitter will solve this issue: http://www.cnet.com/products/belkin-lig ... r/preview/

I use iTrack Solo so I do not use the 3.5" socket unless I'm traveling and using the Line6 mobile interface.
On the long term I see no minuses of dumping the 3.5" socket. The internal DAC and headphone amp in the iOS device is not as good more dedicated gear out there. In addition the 3.5" is an other component which can cause cross talk and various gain/ clipping issues. The 3.5" socket doesn't have the ideal power or impedance to drive many upper end headphones anyway.
There are already many types of interface out there which support iOS and can deal with audio in/ out the iOS device via the Lightning port.

Thanks for your positive responses

But yet still one thing I do not understand is I have a £50ish Sony Bluetooth Headphones
Which does not work with Auria

Will there be any plans by Rim and the Auria crew, to make Bluetooth headphones compatible
If Apple do get rid of the headphone socket?
I swear I read on this very forum it wasn't possible for Bluetooth headphones to be read by Auria ?
