Korg plugKEY Lets iPhone 7 Users Charge And Jam At The Same Time

Korg says that its plugKEY, a Lightning audio interface, is also a solution for iPhone 7 users wanting to listen to music or jam while they charge their phones.

Apple’s latest generation has eliminated the 1/8″ audio jack to allow improved waterproofing and room for a larger battery, forcing a transition to using Lightning or wireless audio accessories. 

plugKEY provides the needed connections for headphones, Aux jacks and more. You can connect any standard micro USB cable (not included) to the iOS USB power supply included with your phone, or any USB car charger, and charge while you listen to audio.

plugKEY also offers 5-pin MIDI IN, and dual ¼” output.

Pricing and Availability

Korg’s plugKEY is available for $99.99.
