Say it ain’t so, where will the wired headphones go?
At Apple’s iPhone 7 event on Wednesday, the headphone jacks (along with many hopes and dreams) were killed.
Following this devastating news, Apple tried to win back our love by introducing some great alternative headphone options — shining a big spotlight on the new $159 wireless headphones, called AirPods.
This did not go over well.
Though there are definitely some functional perks to wireless AirPods, people are struggling to accept the odd looking accessories, and more importantly, the internet is truly fearful for the fate of all those beloved wired headphones.
Following the event, people began brainstorming creative alternate uses for their soon-to-be obsolete wired headphones, and the thoughtful hashtag, #NewUsesForWiredHeadphones began trending on Twitter.
Though slightly bitter, some people tried their best to be realistic…
And others just got downright creative…
We will never forget you, wired headphones.
