AirPods might be the best wireless earphones money can buy, but they don’t play nicely with everything. AirFly is a tiny gadget from Twelve South that changes that by making any device with a 3.5mm headphone jack AirPods-compatible.

Twelve South has made a name for itself by designing pretty and practical products that perfectly complement our Apple devices. AirFly could well be its best yet — especially for the many AirPods owners who would like to use their earphones with more than just their iPhone.

AirFly makes almost anything AirPods-compatible

The miniature white box, hardly bigger than your AirPods case, connects to anything with a 3.5mm headphone jack to provide the wireless connection needed to pair your AirPods. It runs for eight hours in between charges and you can top it up with a microUSB cable.

AirFly is designed to be used with in-flight entertainment systems, as its name suggests, but it’ll work with any device that uses a headphone jack — including your PC or laptop, stereo system, a handheld console, the treadmill in the gym, and even your TV.

AirFly promises high-quality sound and easy pairing, and it costs just $39.99. You can order yours today through the Twelve South website.
