The headphone jack is rapidly disappearing from many smart devices forcing wired audio equipment to become redundant and thus ending up in landfill. This led to a product opportunity to be identified: create a device that enables people to continue using their existing wired headphones whilst allowing them to connect wirelessly to their devices. The design is a neckband which incorporates a Bluetooth module allowing the user to plug their wired headphones into the receiver and to conceal excess cabling around routing points within the neckband profile.
