Apple has been a leader in technology for a number of years for plenty of reasons, but it probably doesn't hurt that they stay ahead of the technology curve across various devices. The latest example is perhaps the iPhone 7. As if it weren't enough that the iPhone 7 is set to update the user experience, but the trend-setting tech giant probably set the curve for headphone technology as well. With the AirPods wireless headphone system by Apple, the mess that comes with tangled wires disappears and users are able to jam out to their favorite beats on-the-go.When Apple's latest iPhone was announced, fans around the world were introduced to AirPods, a new wireless headphone system. This eliminates the mess that comes with tangled wires, while also giving users a diverse offering when it comes to new capabilities.

So whether you are in the market for the newest iPhone or just curious about wireless headphones, here are a few reasons to give the newest headphone trend a try:

All sorts of options
Early versions of Bluetooth headphones struggled with quality, according to Wired. Now, on the other hand, there are powerful, efficient headphones on the market that are fully wireless. They even come in sleek ear buds or fantastic over-the-ear models as well, if that is more your style. Most electronic stores offer a wide array of styles in all different brands that go well with virtually any type of lifestyle. And with even more improvements around the corner with battery life, wireless headphones will only get better from here.

No more hassling with headphones
One of the most obvious advantages to wireless headphones are the fact that you don't have to mess with tangled cords from traditional headphones. As you are probably accustomed to by now, de-tangling headphones can be aggravating – especially when you are ready to hear your music! Even the most careful and cautious packing of your headphones won't prevent your headphones from tying themselves into inconvenient little knots that are just too small for your fingers to effectively untie. With wireless versions of headphones, however, the situation can be avoided entirely.

Additionally, you don't have to worry about carrying a device around with you either. Since you're using wireless headphones, you can use your iPhone, iPad or iPod across the room and connect or disconnect to the source of music easily via your headphones. The best kinds of technologies are ones that make it quicker and easier to achieve goals. When it comes to listening to music on headphones, wireless technology makes it easier than ever.

Don't forget about the new capabilities
Spokesmen and women from Apple have talked repeatedly about how the AirPods headphone technology is the next step for headphones. As such, the debut of the technology with the release of the iPhone 7 is an excellent way to market both products. Not only will the elimination of the headphone jack on the iPhone 7s encourage the use of the AirPods, but the headphones are at the cutting edge of headphones in general. That said, consumers will flock to that product regardless of whether or not they are considering upgrading to the iPhone 7.

In a trend that is popular in most modern technology companies, devices will have the ability to sync with one another so that there is a seamless transition between the use of devices. As such, the AirPods from Apple have the ability to instantly sync with your iPhone or Apple watch and are touch sensitive rather than requiring the use of buttons or switches. Not only do Apple's new headphones boast of an impressive battery life, but the headphones also utilize sensors to know when to pause or play music. You can even make the use of Apple's digital assistant, Siri, by simply tapping gently on the side of the headphones. That means you can send text messages, record voice memos or perform a number of other tasks with the ease of Siri and without your cumbersome device. 

With Apple's AirPods technology, the company is essentially giving people the iCloud capacity in their ear. Because of the sync between the headphones and the rest of your devices, you will have the ability to control the volume to anything that has sounds – including the apps on your devices. Plus, the AirPods are able to automatically switch between your Apple devices based on which one is playing content.

Although AirPods may not be your favorite choice when it comes to wireless headphones, they serve as an excellent representation of the next generation of devices. Across various platforms and throughout multiple devices, wireless technology is becoming the standard. While innovators and developers continue to learn from what works and what does not, they will have to pay attention to the success of wireless technologies, such as headphones. So whether you are considering the purchase of a new iPhone 7 or just want to be at the forefront of headphone technology, give wireless headphones a try. Apple's AirPods are ready to make your life easier.
