Twelve South’s AirFly helps make traveling is a little less annoying
Quickly connect your wireless headphones with in-flight entertainment.
When using AirFly, you can connect wireless headphones, including Apple AirPods, with airline in-flight entertainment systems. They also work great with televisions at your local gym.
Take a look at the video above.
Offering eight hours of battery life between charges, AirFly includes a USB charging cable and travel pouch; it uses the Bluetooth standard for communication.
To get started, all you have to do is plug the device into a headphone jack and press the “pair” button on the front. On your phone, pair as you do with all Bluetooth devices and then press the “pair” button on your wireless headphones. From there, AirFly connects to your wireless headphones, and you’re connected to the in-flight entertainment system on a plane or the televisions at your gym.
Once paired, the dongle will remember your wireless headphones and switch to them when the unit is turned on again. To switch back to using your headphones without AirFly, first turn off AirFly.
Full features include:
- Allows wireless headphones to connect to wired headphone jacks
- Use to pair AirPods with airline in-flight entertainment systems
- Listen to your health club’s TVs with your wireless sport headphones
- Built-in battery lasts up to 8 hours & recharges via USB
If you’re a frequent traveler, I can definitely see the benefits of using Twelve South’s product. However, if you use your mobile device for in-flight entertainment, AirFly become much less necessary.
Priced at $39.99, AirFly is available for purchase through the Twelve South website. Besides AirFly, the company offers accessories for Apple products, including iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac.
