Don’t buy a USB-C adapter that lets you use headphones and charge at the same time

A 2-in-1 adapter could let you listen while you charge if only your phone was built that way.

When the Pixel 2 was first introduced there was an uproar about removing the headphone jack. Much of it was centered around a very real dilemma — you can’t listen to music through wired headphones and charge your phone at the same time.

Those fears were slightly abated when we saw an adapter from Moshi in the Google Store  [Read More…]

The Best USB-C Headphones in 2018

The best headphones for your new phone and its new connector.

The slow death of the headphone jack means that USB-C audio is now a thing. It’s not necessarily a bad thing or a good thing, but it is a (mostly) new thing.

Bluedio A2 review: Stylish, affordable Bluetooth headphones with USB-C

Who said good-looking Bluetooth headphones with USB-C charging had to cost an arm and a leg?

While Micro-USB cables are a  [Read More…]

V-MODA announces Crossfade 2 Codex Edition Bluetooth headphones

V-MODA makes some interesting headphones. They’re a mix of fashion and pure function. The sound signature is bassy and powerful, the design is appealing, and they aren’t cheap. Yet they still sound amazing for the price and they’re built to be extremely tough.

The previous Crossfade 2 headphones only supported the SBC codec over Bluetooth. If you wanted aptX, you’d have to buy the $ 20 more expensive Rose Gold model. Price aside, not everyone wanted rose gold headphones.

OnePlus Bullets Wireless review: Great affordable Bluetooth headphones for everyone

Leave it to OnePlus to make simply great Bluetooth earbuds you can use with any phone.

We’re well past the point of no return when it comes to removing headphone jacks from smartphones. High-end phones, in particular, have dropped the headphone jack as quickly as companies could get enough consumer research to show that it wouldn’t materially affect buying decisions. This has boosted an already-strong market for Bluetooth headphones of all shapes and sizes, as USB-C audio  [Read More…]

The best headphones are the ones you love

Because you’ll actually have them with you.

The tech world is in a headphones frenzy these days because phones are losing their headphone jacks and dividing the world into haves and have-nots. The have-nots are largely choosing to ignore the included dongles (and rightfully so) and moving to Bluetooth; the haves are doubling down with audiophile-quality wired headphones that require powerful amps and expensive DACs to extract the best sound. The audio industry is in a state  [Read More…]
