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.

Never! I charge my phone while justing my headphones all the time. And no I won't buy Bluetooth headphones as they need to be charged up, still have connection issues and there is still no Bluetooth headphone that's nearly as good as the pair of dedicated head phones I use (Oppo PM-3's). If OnePlus decides to ditch the headphone jack, I'd have to remove it from the ever shrinking list of brands I purchase.

I will, when alternatives will be better than wire. Till then wireless for causal, lossy music on the go and wire for gaming, listening music at home and at work and movie watching.
