MacRumors Giveaway: Win Lightning Earbuds With Charging Port From Tech Armor

by

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Tech Armor to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win Tech Armor Lightning Earbuds that come equipped with an extra Lightning port so you can listen to music while your iPhone is plugged in and charging.

Apple removed the headphone jack from the iPhone 7, and since then, iPhones require headphones that work via Lightning, over Bluetooth, or with a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter. These Lightning headphones from Tech Armor are ideal for all devices without a headphone jack, and they also work with iOS devices that are still equipped with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

With rumors suggesting the 2018 iPad Pro models won't feature a headphone jack either, 3.5mm headphone jacks may be further phased out, making Lightning headphones like these even more useful. Lightning headphones can be inconvenient, but the sound quality is better and the addition of a port on Tech Armor's solution fixes the charging problem.

Tech Armor's Lightning headphones, priced at $70, are Made for iPhone certified and plug into the Lightning port of an iPhone or iPad. A Lightning port is built into the inline cable, so you can charge your iPhone or iPad while you're listening to music or playing a game, and they're resistant to tangling.

A microphone is included so you can use the headphones for phone calls, and there's also a remote for controlling the volume, answering/ending calls, or playing/pausing content. Tech Armor includes multiple earbud caps in the package to fit a wide range of ears.

Thanks for speaking up, everyone. These contests are absolutely legit, I spend a few hours a week setting them up, sending out emails, organizing things, etc., and while we do have snafus with our partners on rare occasions, we always make sure prizes go out. I don't publicize winners for privacy reasons. I figure if I won a contest, I probably wouldn't want my name out there, so I do the same for you guys.

Has anyone ever entered a giveaway from macrumors? I always worry about spam emails after registering.

Never received SPAM in the all the years I've entered contests here.
[doublepost=1533352799][/doublepost]

I have, but they never report who's won.
Would make it more enticing to know actual people win these things.

I won a Choetech charger a few weeks ago. Other sites name people and they're bombarded with negative comments and harassment, so I understand why MR rather not publicize winners.

I generally don't give out your email addresses to the companies we partner with (except sometimes so they can send shipping notifications) and we don't do anything with them (I use them solely to email winners), so you won't be getting spam email from us.

I won a Sandisk iXpand 128gb from a giveaway here. These are legit, and I haven’t gotten any spam emails from using the email for the giveaway.
