Following up on the rumor that the iPhone 7 will drop the headphone jack, Jason Rhode, the CEO of known audio supplier Cirrus Logic, made a few interesting comments that only add to the flames:

There are definitely people considering putting [it] in box … any time somebody talks about adding content inside a box, inside the box it ships with the phone, you can imagine the agonizing that goes into any additional micro-penny that gets added to the box.

Noise-canceling headphone technology has also been rumored for the next-gen iPhone headphones.

Discussing the possibility of Lightning-based headphones, Rhode added the following comment:

The amount that we can talk about that outside of other folks who are MFi [made for iPhone] partners is relatively limited, but yeah, there’s things that are up and running via the MFi program that people can take and design with today.

Lightning-connected headphones would become the only wired connection on iPhones without the headphone jack, save for using an adapter.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
