Apple iPhone 7 Real Audio Review: No headphone jack?

Apple’s move to remove the 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is still largely being discussed as a rather controversial move, though we’re still waiting to see how more consumers take to this new hardware. Will people embrace Bluetooth audio solutions? Will folks cope with adapters and dongles? Might some people purchase different phones simply to keep using the headphones they already own? Time will tell, but we’re sure to see more manufacturers follow in Apple, Motorola, and LeEco’s footsteps. It makes too much sense from a business perspective, encouraging customers to purchase additional accessories.

In the meantime, while some phones still have headphone jacks, we’re going to take a closer look at audio performance from the phones we review. Similar to our series of Real Camera Reviews, we’ll be taking a closer look at headphone and speaker playback, while explaining some of the methods we use to test these products. We can’t think of a better phone to start this series off.
