RHA, at its CanJam 2020 NYC outpost last week, showed off an ingenious solution for in-flight listening that allows travelers to get around being tethered to those seatback video screens by anything but a riveting movie plot: The RHA Wireless Flight Adapter, that can pair up to two Bluetooth headphones to an aircraft’s in-seat entertainment system. A $49.95 gadget no larger than an electrical plug, it boasts an internal rechargeable battery that is good for 16 hours of use when fully charged via USB-C – about the length of time it takes to fly nonstop from New York to Hong Kong. It is compatible with single- or dual-pin-style headphone receptacles on planes, and can be angled downward and out of the way, if the receptacle is on the seat armrest.
The company also showed its TrueConnect true wireless earbuds ($169.95); The earbuds ship with 10 sizes of eartips and their charging case’s connected lid pops open, “waking up” the earbuds. The Bluetooth 5.0 buds provide a total of 25 hours of battery life, and are IPX5 water- and sweat-resistant. Case color choices are black, white, and navy blue.
Both products boast a three-year warranty from the U.K.-based manufacturer.
