Wired or wireless: What type of headphones/earphones are you using? (poll results)

our poll asking you to self-identify your type of headphones or earphones are now in, and so we have at least some indication of the scale.This got us thinking about the consequences, as where Apple goes, accessory manufacturers follow. So how many of you would such a switch impact? Well, the results of
Over 1,600 of our readers took part in the survey, and the vast majority of them (just under 60%) say they use wired, 3.5mm headphones. A distant second, the wireless segment accounted for just ~16%, while ~12% say that they cycle between wired and wireless (but mostly use wired), while ~10% claim they do the same, but mostly rely on their wireless pair. Only 9 people, or 0.56%, say they have headphones with a Lightning port.

I mix & match (but mostly wireless)

I don't use headphones or earphones
In other words, a move away from the 3.5mm jack will have a pretty sizable impact, with many users having to either invest into new headphones that will be compatible with the iPhone 7, or get some sort of adapter to make their old pair work. If this rumor proves true come September, we just hope tangible, user-facing benefits will offset the costs that will be passed onto consumers in terms of both money and convenience.

Wired in terms of sound/music quality is way batter. The fact that you don't have to charge it every now and then is a plus as well.

Wired connexion everytime unless you don't care about sound quality, which it's not my case. Just buy one Audio technica ath m50x ( which provides the best quality for its price) and you will never appreciate a wireless headphone ever !
