I'm a few weeks in with the iPhone 7 and I wanted to share my experience with audio now I don't have a headphone jack. Are my habits really affecting how I'm listening to audio?
I use the speakers a lot
More than I thought I was. When I'm in the house I'm finding that I just use the in built speakers. The new stereo speakers aren't a game changer but are an improvement. My earpiece speaker sounds a little muffled so may need to check it out with Apple.
They are my go to headphones, not as good sounding as my BOSE but do the job. They fit me fine and never have a problem with them being uncomfortable. I think most people will use what comes in the box.
I've had a pair of LG for a while and I've had mixed luck with them but since getting the iPhone 7 I've been using them for walks and in the office. They are comfortable and the battery has been a champ. The only downside is the range, when I'm more than about 6 ft away it starts getting choppy.
The main problem
The elephant in the room with the iPhone 7 is not being able to charge and listen at the same time. This has been my main annoyance, I knew this going in but wanted to see how my habits changed. This has forced my hand in using my LG's a lot more and to be honest now I've adapted it's not a huge problem. In the car I have bluetooth and a USB charger so not a problem there either.
I'll be sticking with the iPhone 7 and a headphone jack-less existence. I'm still not sold on why it was removed but will be picking up a pair of AirPods on release.
