If you have been following our website, then you probably know that the OnePlus 6T will most likely be announced on October 16th. The company posted a screenshot of the display, with the dates on it, during an interview. Now, it seems that we will also be getting a new headphone with the launch of the OnePlus 6T.
According to a new press release we received, OnePlus will be launching a new and updated version of the USB Type-C Bullets earphones.
OnePlus Type C Bullets
The company announced a new version of the Bullets V2 earphones today, only this time, it’s USB Type-C compatible. OnePlus is calling it the Type C Bullets, and it will be launched alongside the OnePlus 6T in Q4 2018.
With the new Type C Bullets, the user will get a better overall audio experience. It will feature similar design as the Bullets V2, but the cables would be improved thanks to the addition of Aramid fiber. This would make the cable more durable and it will not bend or stretch easily.
The Type C Bullets earphones would include a newer DAC, which would be built-in. The DAC is manufactured by Ciruss Logic, and it features higher dynamic range, better signal-to-noise ratio, and a low noise floor. If you are an audiophile, then you know what all this means. Also, USB Type-C provides less loss of quality when compared to the analog 3.5mm headphone jack.
According to OnePlus, its users are slowly deviating to wireless earphones and aren’t really using the given headphone jack. OnePlus is one of those companies, who still hasn’t gotten rid of the headphone jack. The company conducted a survey, and found that, in 2017, about 80 percent users used the headphone jack. That percentage fell to 59 percent in 2018. Does this mean that OnePlus is getting rid of the headphone jack in the next phone?
