Ultra-affordable OnePlus Type-C Bullets are coming to help you forget jack
It’s hard not to feel let down by the latest addition to the audio jack-hating smartphone manufacturer club, especially after OnePlus highlighted its commitment to the time-honored feature less than a year ago.

But if you think about it, it was pretty obvious that the introduction and booming success of the Bullets Wireless earphones foreshadowed a “very controversial” decision. To ensure the smoothest possible transition and offer a couple of great options for listening to music on the OnePlus 6T, the company is today unveiling the aptly named Type-C Bullets.

The updated version of the “acclaimed” 3.5 mm jack-connecting Bullets V2 will be made available along with “the company’s next device” in “Q4 2018” (why so vague?) for the same ultra-affordable $19.95 price.

That’s incredibly aggressive, considering that Essential, for instance, initially priced its USB-C Earphones HD at a whopping $99, recently marking that down to $49.

OnePlus is also touting a number of improvements and upgrades for the newly unveiled Type-C Bullets compared to the already powerful “classic” Bullets V2, including a higher dynamic range, higher signal-to-noise ratio, and lower noise floor.

At least in theory, your music should be “clearer, with a more powerful bass and little to no loss in details or quality.” The OnePlus Type-C Bullets aim to produce a “balanced sound” by leveraging their premium metal build, combining utility with versatility while “ensuring a comfortable fit.”

It all sounds... almost too good to be true for $19.95, so it might just be wise to remain patient and see what the Type-C Bullets are capable of in real life once they actually become available alongside the OnePlus 6T.
