B&W's first wireless earbuds can work around in-flight Bluetooth bans

These wireless earphones will allow users to stream from older sound sources, even those that lack native Bluetooth, thanks to a handy trick hidden in the charging case. — B&W/dpa

When you listen to music on a wireless pair of earbuds, the Bluetooth signal normally comes straight from your smartphone or tablet. Not so with B&W's first pair of true wireless, noise cancelling earphones.

Why? Because the charging case can be plugged into any headphone jack, you can also wirelessly stream from older sound sources without Bluetooth and also watch the film on a plane even when the crew is telling you to turn your devices to airplane mode.
