There are different types of headphones for the Apple iPhone 12, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max and 12 mini. Sports headphones for jogging, over-ear headphones for all-round enjoyment, in-ear buds without cables for use without restrictions and of course the Apple AirPods (Pro). It is important that Bluetooth headphones on the iPhone 12 (Pro / Pro Max / mini) are of course the most convenient to use. If you want to use wired models with a jack connection, you need a Lightning to jack adapter. For the sake of completeness, you will also find this in the following guide.
Here I have summarized the headphones from different categories that have been rated the best on Amazon. You can order them with Prime Shipping and use them quickly with your new Apple smartphone.
The iPhone models from 2020 also only come with a Lightning connector. You won't find a single headphone jack or even USB-C. But anyone who buys a current iPhone knows that. There is one suitable for this and other devices with a Lightning connector Adapter from Apple, which allows you to bypass Lightning to the 3,5 mm headphone jack. So you can z.

If you use Bluetooth instead of cables, you will find several solutions from the iPhone manufacturer itself. Above all, of course, with the Apple AirPods (2nd generation)which not only offer very good sound, but are also designed in terms of their functions for use with Apple devices such as iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, MacBook and Co. The coupling is super easy. Same goes for that Apple AirPods Pro with in-ear plugs, active noise cancellation (ANC) and functions such as 3D audio. The latter also offer the AirPods Max as an over-ear alternative with ANC.
Here at Sir Apfelot, headphones are tested again and again so that you get reliable information about Apple alternatives firsthand. I have listed which true wireless headphones and over-ear models were last tested here so that you don't have to search individually. There are, for example, the prices that have now fallen Soundcore Liberty 2 from Anker. But they are also recommended Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro (test report from January 2021). You will also find experiences with the TaoTronics SoundLiberty 79; or maybe you are interested in them BlitzWolf BW-FYE8 True wireless in-ear headphones.
