Yes! The same lightning port you use to charge your iPhone can now serve the purpose of headphones. We have a list of best and cheap options for lightning headphones for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7Plus.

The price of the headphones is high and half the worth of an iPhone 6/6s, I would still recommend this headset for its build and quality. The design if marvelous with outstanding gear look. With premium earbuds and light weight, the earphones can strongly settle in your ear without any discomfort.

The wiring is thin and weighs pretty much less than any other lightning headphones in the list. With a price tag of $49.99, the Ecsem lightning supported headphones are a good choice to try out if you are looking for an under $50 lightning headphones.
