If you are an Apple user, especially the iPhone and the iPad you might find it difficult to find the right pair of headphones for you. With the introduction of the iPhone 7 series, Apple dropped the 3.5mm headphone jack from their iPhones which continued from their following models. This essentially means you either have to use the wired lightning Apple Earbuds supplied with the iPhone, wireless headphones or the Airpods. The downside for the wired Apple Earbuds is the build and sound quality.
Belkin is known to be a premium accessory maker for smartphones. Not only this, but Belkin also makes accessories for Apple products such as iPhone and iPad which offer complete compatibility with Apple products. Belkin has recently launched the Rockstar wired headphones which come with a lightening type connector.

Using Rockstar headphones is no rocket science. Just plug and play. Since Belkin is an official third-party accessory maker for Apple, the connectivity is seamless and no issues of incompatibility were noticed whatsoever. The Rockstar headphones are regular wired headphones which come without any form of noise cancellation. However, with the different sized ear tips that are supplied in the box, one will be able to get a perfect fit for themselves which will provide a great deal of sound isolation in the ear. Coming to the performance, the Rockstar headphones did not show evidence of distortion, even when being played in maximum volume. With the right size earbuds, the noise isolation works well and the listening experience is much better.
