Twelve South’s AirFly helps make traveling a little less annoying
Quickly connect your wireless headphones with in-flight entertainment.
Flying isn’t exactly fun, thanks to the increased security, long lines, and rising ticket prices. With Twelve South’s newest accessory. AirFly, however, flying can become a little bit more bearable.
When using AirFly, you can connect wireless headphones, including Apple’s 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.
How to connect AirFly
To get started, 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.
