Best wired headphones for iPhone to buy right now
Nowadays, especially in 2024, most people use wireless headphones and they no longer remember the iPhone users' pain from 2016 when Apple ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack... 

However, if you're one of the people who still prefer wired earbuds and you have an iPhone, or maybe, your mom doesn't like wireless earbuds and wants something simple for her iPhone, you will need to look into headphones with a Lightning cable (unless your phone is the iPhone 15, then you need a USB-C headphones.)

Here, we have made a list of the best wired headphones for iPhone with Lightning connector you can get right now. Keep in mind, however, that Lightning headphones are going the way of the dodo, so the options are few, and dwindling each year.

Apple EarPods - either with Lighning or USB-C

The simple solution from Apple

Apple's EarPods with Lightning connector are a straightforward option, particularly suitable for those seeking simplicity. They are lacking rubber eartips so they may not provide a snug fit, but they serve quite good as a spare pair of earphones. 

Imagine this: your wireless earbuds run out of battery, and you need a quick backup solution—enter the EarPods to save the day. Surprisingly, Apple's offering comes at a more budget-friendly price point, a rarity in the realm of Apple products.

On top of that, even if you're sporting the latest iPhone 15, you're not left out, as these EarPods are also available with a USB-C connector.

EarPods with Lightning Connector

The EarPods with Lightning Connector include a built-in remote that lets you adjust the volume, control the playback of music and video, and answer or end calls with a pinch of the cord.

The other ones we have here only come with a Lightning connector.
