One of the biggest rumors about the upcoming iPhone 7 is that the phone will eliminate the trusty ol' headphone port to achieve a thinner profile. This still has yet be verified and we probably won't know until later this year, but this new headphone from JBL is sure to keep the rumor mill churning. 

The JBL Aware is a sport headphone with a noise cancellation feature that doesn't need any batteries. So how do they pull it off? Well, they draw power (and audio) straight from your smartphone by swapping out a headphone jack for a Lightning connector. Oh, and they didn't forget about Android users either. A USB-C version will also be available for use with phones like the HTC 10 and the Google Nexus.
