Antec Smartbean Adds Bluetooth to Any Headphones

People are losing their ever-loving minds over the possibility that Apple may get rid of the headphone jack on the next iPhone. I’ve talked about the Antec Smartbean before but I decided to make a video for Megan Morrone and Leo Laporte to play on iOS Today. I thought it might be a good device for people who don’t want to buy all new headphones.

I did about 8 takes before finally nailing the video…but Ada decided to help. Being the consummate professional, I kept that part in.

    It annoys me that you lose.some functionality of the buttons when using Bluetooth.
    BT can only go forward or back a track. But it can’t for fast forward or rewind. This is fine for music most of these times. But for audio books and podcasts no bueno. And you can’t use trigger your camera shutter with the volume buttons.

    I love the freedom infer from Bluetooth. But I miss these features and really hope apple can address them.

    The Smartbean absolutely does fast forward and rewind on podcasts, Steve! That’s essential. It obeys the controls in the podcast app you’re using.
