    I know that Apple released the Lightning spec for hooking up headphones to the lightning port on the iPhone and I know that Apple recently opened up lightning passthrough for uses like phone battery cases... but I'm wondering if there are any bluetooth headphones out there that charge with a lightning cable instead of a micro usb cable? Just trying to limit the number of cables to have keep in-stock. I would imagine/expect a pair of Beats headphones to get this at some point.

    Thanks. Those are still wired though, correct? Instead of using 3.5mm audio cable, it connects with the lightning cable?

    I'm hoping for a pair of bluetooth headphones that are charged via lightning instead of micro usb.

    There's a successfully funded Kickstarter project which only has a few days left to run which may be what you are looking for:

    Pugz have recently announced that they can no longer achieve charging through a lightning port as they can't get certification from Apple.
