#2 Wireless headphones,iPhone 7
This market has already been heavily invested into in the recent past.

The best in this category are;

Retailing at $159, the airpods may get a bit of flack on the side but they have superior features too! For instance, the iPhone W1 chip embedded into them ensures that pairing to an iPhone is super simple. They will also automatically sync with all your other Apple devices without making you sweat for it, as long as the devices are registered on your account.
Their built-in microphone enables them to execute voice commands while their touch functionality is useful in triggering Siri. They are neatly packaged too!
Bluetooth earbuds (Jaybird X2, Jaybird Freedom)
With an extra long battery life, about twice as long as the Airpod’s, you get an impressive 8 hours of playback before the juice runs out! These wireless headphones,iPhone 7 sound phenomenal too. The chances of them falling out of the ears are virtually nil. Their wing-tip shape fits snugly and comfortably into your ears.

The big ear buds are fused with noise cancellation features, ensuring that you’re fully engrossed in listening to your favourite music.

Though still Beats by looks, they are embedded with Apple’s W1 chip, making them compatible with all Apple devices. Just by turning them on, they automatically pair to your iPhone 7 and other devices too.
They also exchange information with your iPhone such as their battery percentage and so much more. These wireless headphones, iPhone 7 compatible, lay claim to a 40-hour continuous playback; essentially, this makes all other wireless headphones look like child’s play in the battery-life category.

They are still priced like and sound like Beats.
# The $9 dongle
As a last resort, this dongle is basically an adapter for those who don’t want to relinquish their jack headphones and still use them with the iPhone 7. By plugging the dongle to your current pair of headphones, you can leave it there permanently and get to enjoy the same sound quality.
