You can connect them to virtually any portable audio device with a mini headphone jack, plus you get a 1/4" adapter for compatible home audio equipment and a 2.5mm adapter for select cell phones. And of course they also come with an airline adapter, so you can plug into in-flight entertainment systems and block out engine roar.
