OnePlus Intros USB-C Bullets Headphone – OnePlus 6T Will Drop The Headphone Jack

OnePlus today announced a new pair of wired headphones for its smartphones.

The Type-C Bullets have been re-engineered to produce the right balance between in-ear comfort and high-quality sound. OnePlus says a new DAC from Cirrus Logic helps deliver higher dynamic range, higher signal-to-noise ratio, and lower noise floor in the new earbuds. This equates to more thump-y bass and clearer highs. Plus, the Type-C Bullets were designed to last thanks to aramid fibers that prevent stretching and wear. OnePlus says the Type-C Bullets will be available in the months to come.

Also of not is the a report by TechRadar that OnePlus plans to drop the headphone jack in the OnePlus 6T. The information was confirmed by OnePlus CEO Carl Pei.

“You’ve got to make decisions that optimize the user experience, and understand that at times things that provide user value can also add friction,” said Pei. “We found 59% of our community already owned wireless headphones earlier this year — and that was before we launched our Bullets Wireless headphones.”

OnePlus understands that the decision may be controversial, but insists it is not doing it for the sake of doing it.

“We knew this was an option for a very long time, we were just waiting for the right time. By removing the jack we’ve freed up more space, allowing us to put more new technology into the product,” said Pei. 

The OnePlus 6T will arrive later this year.
