How It Works
Jack by Podo Labs makes any headphones wireless. This tiny device brings Bluetooth capability to all of your audio devices. It even lets you sync headphones with a friend. Jack can serve up to 12 hours with its 3000 mAh battery. It also has a micro USB port for recharging.
Just pair it with your required device via Bluetooth and you are ready to go on hands-free. You can also plug it into any speaker and play music from your smartphone – wirelessly.
It works in 3 modes –
- Receiving Mode: Send audio through any aux input, e.g. with standalone or car speakers.
- Sharing Mode: Share music or movies with a friend by splitting the audio. Requires two Jacks.
- Transmitting Mode: Send audio from any normal source to Bluetooth headphones or another Jack.
According to Podo Labs, “Jack is a relatively simple product in comparison to the Podo Camera, which we have developed and shipped since 2015. The primary components are the Bluetooth protocol, battery management, and user-focused design–areas we consider our strengths. There is no mobile application necessary with Jack, meaning ubiquitous device compatibility will be much simpler to achieve.”
