OnePlus Announces Type-C Bullets Earphones

Naturally OnePlus loyals with their trusty 3.5mm-ended headphones won't be overjoyed at the news, however they may find comfort in the performance upgrades that ditching the jack allegedly allows.

Going hand-in-hand with the news that OnePlus' next handset won't have a 3.5mm headphone jack, the company has just unveiled a new set of headphones: the Type-C Bullets that connect via USB-C.

Team Android just lost one of the few remaining defenders of the headphone jack. In an interview with TechRadar, the company's co-founder Carl Pei revealed that the "next OnePlus handset" won't have a headphone jack. While the current OnePlus 6 packs a 3300mAh capacity battery, the OnePlus 6T will include a bigger 3500mAh capacity battery with the manufacturer's VOOC fast charging support.

In its press note unveiling the Type-C Bullets, OnePlus quotes its survey to specify that while in early 2017, 80% of users used in-jack headphones regularly, that number dropped drastically in 2018 with 59% of users switching to wireless headsets. "If we were to do that two years ago, the percentage would have been much lower and it would have caused a lot of friction in our users". The OnePlus 6T display will also include a "light-sensitive" fingerprint sensor embedded under the panel and a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 6 on top for protection. In addition to the in-display fingerprint scanner, Pei pointed out that OnePlus is planning to improve the battery backup by a "substantial" margin in the upcoming devices by the company. Along with a hint that its next flagship device will come with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

The last apparent minority of users that'll never be OK with the removal of the jack is the in-car AUX audio user. For OnePlus to remove that convenience is certainly a bummer for this crowd.

So, Pei isn't saying the decision is courageous, but at least he's got some numbers to help back up the company's plan to ditch the headphone jack.

Thoughts on leaving the headphone jack behind, friends? And I, of course, am not.
