Apple stores are now selling a $55 solution for when you forget to bring your old headphones on a plane, or any time you want to use your AirPods or Beats but there isn't a bluetooth connection.

The Twelve South AirFly Pro bluetooth transmitter plugs into a headphone jack, which you can then connect to your AirPods and tune in to in-flight movies. Conveniently, you can even pair 2 sets of AirPods to the same AirFly Pro, so whoever you're traveling with can watch the same movie. Apple's website says "Think of AirFly Pro as a headphone splitter for wireless headphones."

The transmitter can also transfer audio in the other direction, which is perfect for playing music or podcasts in a rental car or non-smart speaker.

Apple says the battery lasts for up to 16 hours, so you should be set even on long-haul flights.

You can buy the AirFly Pro for $55 now. Here's the rundown:
