Deals blog: HOCO makes better Lightning headphones than Apple

No headphone jack, huh?

Whether or not you think it was a dick move for Apple to ditch the traditional headphone jack you’ve been using literally your entire life on every listening device you’ve ever owned, this isn’t the time for a walk down memory lane.

Yeah yeah, you’ll tell your grandkids all about the headphone jacks of the good ol’ days, while they go comatose in their portable Matrix machines instead of listening to you, that’s great.
