Upgrade to Lightning Audio Without Breaking The Bank
If you’ve been reading the news you probably know there are already a few good options of headphones on the market designed specifically for use with the jackless iPhone 7.
Many of the first models on the market however are produced by high-end audio companies that are designed more for serious audiophiles than they are for average Joes and Janes..and with price ranges in the hundreds of dollars simply too expensive for many people.
It’s not all doom and gloom though as there are headphones designed to provide superior audio quality of a lightning cable but wont’ break the bank doing so. One such company that was one of the first to sell MFi Approved headphones is Brightech.
What’s MFi Mean?
What does MFi stand for you’re asking? MFi stands for Made for “iPhone/iPad/iPod”. It’s a program from Apple where they officially approve hardware and software designed to work with their products. This means the Brightech line, including the Pure Lightning are officially Apple approved!
Are They Really Affordable?
Sweet, but they must cost a fortune right? That’s where you’d be wrong! The Pure Lightning’s can be found on Amazon for as low as $39.99! No joke, these are probably THE cheapest lightning around-the-ear headphones on the market. Given the success of Brightech’s earbuds, we’re pretty excited about these full sized cans..
Brightech Pure Lightning Review
It’s still early as people are just catching on to the beauty of Lightning powered headphones, but the Pure Lightning’s are enjoying very positive reviews on tech sites including Amazon. Users are praising their light weight, HD sound and comfortable fit.
There’s more than just a good fit to these though, they also look absolutely stunning with a black and red color scheme.
Product Overview & Specs
The Brightech MFi Approved Pure Lightning over-ear cans provide full 24-bit digital audio in a small foldable headset. This makes it perfect for people who commute or travel as they can easily be folded down to fit in a small messenger bag or carry-on.
These cans also include an in-line remote that can adjust the volume on the go. The cable itself is designed to be tangle free and is 1.2 meters long, plenty long enough to use at a desk or work station.
