As easy as it was to poke fun at Apple's pricey, wireless headphones when they were released, now that I own a pair myself, I love them. To get the most out of my AirPods, I went searching for some useful tips. I'm now sharing what I found so that everyone can benefit from my discoveries.

Bluetooth headphones are all the rage. With Apple and others dropping the trusty old 3.5mm headphone jack, you can either carry an extra, easy-to-lose adapter around, or you can spend a few bucks on a decent set of wireless headphones. The Audiofly AF100W bluetooth headphones are an in-ear set that sit comfortably and have a flexible over-the-ear design that keeps them in place while you're exercising to some tunes. But how did they sound?
The easiest way to make exercising feel a little better is to slap some headphones in your earholes and play your favourite tracks. Throughout the first quarter of 2018, I've been testing a range of wireless headphones as I walk, run and sprint my way around my neighbourhood. How do they fare? Let's find out.
The only thing that makes long-distance driving tolerable is music and/or podcasts. Unfortunately, using the car stereo isn't always an option. Perhaps the speakers are busted, or the person in the passenger seat hates your taste in music. In these situations, the obvious solution is to don a pair headphones. But is this actually legal?
This week, I attempted to get my head around wireless headsets by testing two of the best business models on the market: the H800MB from Logitech and the 660 UC MS from Sennheiser.

If, like me, you research every gadget purchase to the Nth degree, it can be super depressing when said product arrives and it's perfect... except for one, tiny thing. Usually that thing escaped detection because it only rears it head once you actually use your new shiny. In my case, it was a set of SoundMagic E10 earphones to replace my busted EarPods. The problem? They vibrate.
The Pixel 2, like its competition, has ditched the headphone jack, opting to include a single USB-C port on its bottom. While it makes waterproofing the device much easier, it restricts the kinds of accessories you can connect to your smartphone. Specifically, every pair of headphones you have ever owned, along with anything else depending on a 3.5mm auxiliary cable.
Dear Lifehacker, After going through my third pair of earphones for my mobile in recent times, I was wondering if there is a "preferred" way to keep the phone in your pocket? Do you have the lead facing upwards from the outside of the pocket, or down towards the groin? I'm sick of my earphones not lasting a year before the connection becomes sketchy.
