Welp, we’ve hit peak dongle. Paul Miller from The Verge keeps his dongle connected to his iPhone 7 regularly, so he doesn’t lose his only way to listen to headphones. Others who have an iPhone 7 are doing the same thing, but there’s a better way. Uncourage is a keychain holder for your dongle, which is just a keyring with a 3.5 mm jack.
I’ve seen others 3-D printing similar ideas, but this premium metal build helps keep your dongle safe. The plug is only $6, or you could buy a three pack for $12 which lets you give one to every family member. Beyond the terrible name, it’s a brilliant idea that others will jump on. We all cannot move away from the 3.5mm jack, especially when you’ve bought an extremely expensive pair of headphones.
One way or another, using the dongle holder lets you always have the dongle with you even if you don’t always need it. I’ve ordered one to have just in case, even though I’ve made the transition to either Bluetooth or lightning connected headphones.
Tell us in the comments below if you’re going to buy the dongle holder or opt for the completely wireless life.
