It's 2017, and the iPhone 7 still has no headphone jack. In the intervening months, we've seen a variety of solutions from companies big and small to restore the missing jack, from dongles to battery cases that include a 3.5mm headphone port.

Now, Incipio, one of the biggest case manufacturers in the world, is getting in on the game at CES 2017 with its new OX case, which brings back the ability to listen to music and charge your phone at the same time. The OX case looks similar to most plastic iPhone 7 cases, but an added protrusion on the bottom similar to Apple's official battery pack provides space for the extra ports. But instead of adding extra battery life, the OX offers a 3.5mm jack for music, along with a Lightning port for charging.

The OX will be available in both iPhone 7 and 7 Plus sizes, and will cost $59.99 when it launches later this year.
