OnePlus Bullets V2 Earbuds Type-C

OnePlus has shared that it will introduce an updated USB Type-C variant of its existing OnePlus Bullets V2 earphones. The earphones will be launched alongside the company’s next device – expected to be called the OnePlus 6T – in the coming quarter. While this is a clear indication of the retirement of the headphone jack by OnePlus, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei too confirmed that the upcoming device will ditch the 3.5mm audio jack. 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. Clearly, an attempt to preemptively offer an explanation for the decision that will ignite a lot of debate.
