Even in 2024, most in-flight entertainment systems don’t offer Bluetooth connections. Without an AirPods airplane adapter, you can’t pop in your favorite earbuds and enjoy your choice of the airline’s featured movies, TV shows and music in a glorious state of noise-cancellation-induced bliss. Instead, you need to bring an additional pair of wired headphones or use (or purchase) a crappy pair on the plane.

If using random earbuds that don’t sound good and/or continuously fall out seems unappealing to you, you’re not alone. That’s why this Eve II Bluetooth Transmitter and Receiver is such a useful device for travelers. Perfect for any upcoming air travel, it’s on sale now for only $45.99 (regularly $59).

AirPods airplane adapter: Make in-flight entertainment sound awesome

Specially made to be compatible with airline entertainment systems, the Eve II measures just 1.6 inches by 0.5 inches by 1.8 inches. You can pack the tiny Bluetooth adapter in your backpack or toss it into your pocket so you can use your AirPods to stay entertained throughout your flight.

Its folding dual-3.5 mm aux plugs let you connect to regular single jacks or those two-hole ones that airplane manufacturers sometimes use just to irritate you. The dongle employs Bluetooth 5.3 for solid wireless connections, and it works with two sets of AirPods (or other wireless earbuds/headphones) at a time.

You’ll get up to 20 hours of battery life on a charge, which will come in handy during long trips. Plus, the Bluetooth adapter’s 32-foot wireless range should prove more than sufficient for almost any scenario.

Use it with a pair of the latest AirPods Pro with USB-C case for the ultimate in in-flight comfort and noise cancellation. (Need a pair? Apple’s latest AirPods Pro are currently on sale for just $189.99, close to the lowest price we’ve seen for our favorite noise-canceling earbuds.)

Bluetooth adapter works with TVs, home and car stereos, and more

Adam Elements’ Eve II is not limited to airplanes, either. In fact, versatility is key with this affordable Bluetooth transmitter.

This AirPods airplane adapter is also compatible with various audio devices, from TVs and home stereos to car audio systems. It’s easy to use, and effectively bridges the gap between your favorite wireless gadgets and older devices that don’t come with built-in Bluetooth.
