Modern cell phone designs are eliminating the headphone jack in favor of better waterproofing and space for other features. It was a drag for me because i used my headphone jack for not only my wired headphone collection, but a variety of useful things in my job as an audio engineer. I discovered recently that for $70 I could still have a headphone jack, AND it's wireless, AND it provides more power than my cell did, AND it doesn't add much to what I'm already carrying in my pockets. This is the FiiO BTR3K. For $130 you can get the BTR5 which I recommend if you're trying to push more demanding headphones, but it's bigger, battery life is shorter, and range is shorter. #headphonejack #headphones #bluetooth
