Best Lightning headphones in 2021 for your iPhone or iPad

To listen to music on any iPhone since the age-old iPhone 7, you either need a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones, a 3.5mm to Lightning converter (no longer included in the box for 2018 and later iPhones) or a pair of wired headphones that will connect to the Lightning port. 

It's maybe not something you see in every store and from every brand, but Lightning headphones do exist, and they allow you to plug a pair of headphones directly into the port in the bottom edge of your iPhone. 

So, why choose Lightning headphones? Lightning headphones do have a special quality; they're capable of receiving lossless stereo 48kHz digital audio output from Apple devices and sending mono 48kHz digital audio input. They can also draw power from an Apple device (even if the device is asleep).

Apple's Lightning port can also support headphones with integrated digital-to-analogue converters (DACs) and amplifiers, so audio travelling through the Lightning port will pass into the headphones digitally, thus avoiding typical analogue signal interferences you get with other headphones. That means, from a personal headphones point-of-view, it's the way to get the highest quality audio delivered from your iPhone. 

We've picked some of the best pairs of Lightning headphones available now, comprising over-ear and in-ear models, at a variety of price points.

Our Top Pick is currently the Belkin SoundForm purely for its convenience and value for money, but other Lightning headphones are worth considering, especially for audiophiles. Those included are the Audeze LCD i3, Libratone Q-Adapt in-ear, Pioneer Rayz Plus and Sennheiser Ambeo Sport.
