CES2017 iPhone 7 users no longer must choose between charging their device or listening to headphones, thanks to a new case that restores the headphone jack to its rightful place.

Getting a headphone jack back on the iPhone 7 comes at the cost of some serious bulk, but with Incipio’s new OX case, at least you won’t have to carry around a dongle anymore.

“We wanted to bring the headphone jack back to the latest iPhone so our customers could still enjoy their favorite pair of traditional headphones without worrying about low-battery and sacrificing device protection,” said Carlos Del Toro, director of products at Incipio.

The OX case was unveiled today at CES in Las Vegas, where thousands of electronic companies have gathered to show off their newest products to kick off 2017. Other popular new Apple-related products revealed at the event have included a number of docks and dongles that expand the ports of the MacBook Pro, which was gutted of its USB A, SD card slot, Thunderbolt and MagSafe connectors.

Apple made the controversial decision to remove the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus this year. To make help fans embrace the wireless future, Apple produced wireless AirPods, but many users have had a hard time adjusting to the changes.

Incipio’s case doesn’t pack any extra battery or storage. It simply snaps onto the back of your iPhone and adds a headphone jack and Lightning port. Once units start shipping, you can pick one up in multiple colors for $59.99.

      Great product for the hundreds of millions of people worldwide with perfectly fine stereo equipment at home, in their car, at work, at the gym that they don’t want to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to replace because Apple thinks they know better.

    If the photo implies that the headphone jack belongs on the bottom of the phone then it technically doesn’t return it to “where it should be” because, as I have found on my SE, I can no longer stand my phone upright with the jack plugged in the bottom. The jack belongs on the top, all scientists agree.
