Yes, Apple went ahead and did it: It left off the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. That means you can't plug your standard wired headphones into the phone without using a Lightning adapter, which Apple includes with both new phones along with a set of Lightning Ear Pods.

But now that the headphone jack is gone a lot of iPhone users are looking to cut the cord and go wireless. With that in mind here's a look at a bunch of top wireless Bluetooth headphones that you can pair with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (and every other Bluetooth-enabled audio device).

Editors' note: We'll be updating this round-up as we review more Bluetooth headphones leading up to the launch of the new iPhones this fall.

Apple AirPods

Apple's totally wireless AirPods may look a little strange, but they're designed to automatically pair with the iPhone 7, 7 Plus and other Apple devices running iOS 10, WatchOS 3 or MacOS Sierra. They're Bluetooth headphones that also work with Android devices, but Apple devices get access to special features. Despite a few quirks, they've mostly impressed us.
