Noise-cancellation makes the second generation AirPods Pro (see my review here) perfect for traveling. However, you still have to the wireless headphones to in-flight entertainment. Enter the new AirFly from Twelve South. 

The wireless transmitter ($34.99) plugs into those jacks normally reserved for wired headsets and transmits the sound to your wireless headphones. It has a built-in battery that lasts up to 20 hours, after which time it can be recharged via USB-C. For long-distance flights, that gives you the opportunity to use your AirPods to listen to music or movies without the need to recharge. Plus, it sports a battery indicator so you’ll know when it’s time to recharge.

The new AirFly also sports new Volume controls that let you easily turn sound up or down. You can mute the sound with two taps.

The AirFly itself is tiny and well built. It’s easy to slip into a pocket, purse, or travel bag. Conveniently, Twelve South provides a small gray velour drawstring bag to hold it all together.

The sound quality via AirFly Pro from a device that’s normally wired is good. There’s no static, no delay, and no disconnections. 

If you need to connect two pairs of AirPods or wireless headphones, check out Twelve South’s AirFly Duo or AirFly Pro.
