Anker : an adapter for use EarPods Lightning on the Mac by USB-C

For the worse as for the better, and Apple has never seen fit to equip its computers with a port Lightning, which would have allowed use of the EarPods, and other audio products wired equipped with this connector. With the Mac, you can get by using a headset with a jack socket, Apple has had the “courage” to let the Mac their audio port 3.5 mm (for how long ?).

But the latest iPad Pro does have a USB port-C to offer, which limits the audio listening to Bluetooth products or more rare helmets USB-C… which is not so simple. How, then, if you do not want or can not to succumb to the delights of a wireless world ?

Anker has a solution : an adapter certified MFi equipped with a connector USB-C on one end, and the other a port Lightning. You can use this dongle with a Mac, an iPad Pro, or any computer on Windows 10 with a USB port-C, and connect EarPods or headphones Lightning. It was necessary to think…

The audio transmission is ensured in 48 KHz/24-bit. If earphones or headphones feature a remote control and a microphone, they will work with the adapter. Anker ensures compatibility with the EarPods, but also the urBeats 3, the AMBEO Smart Headset Apogee Sennheiser, the Rayz of Pioneer, as well as several models of Radius and Audeze. The cable is available on Amazon (in the Usa only for the moment) at a price of $30.
