nine wired headphone options for iPhone and iPad

The tendency of manufacturers is to generate products that take us to a world without cables (or at least reduce them as much as possible). One of the sectors that is benefiting most from eliminating them is the headset sector . With Apple leading the way with its AirPods, we see more and more options on the market with the TWS callsign ( True Wireless ).

Despite the sense of freedom you get when you don’t have to worry about tangles or tugs, fully wireless headphones also have their problems . The first one that comes to mind is the battery life, which decreases as the weeks go by (and the recharges).
