Micro-USB may be cheaper and still easy to find cables for, but that’s no excuse not to upgrade in 2019.

I spend an ungodly amount of time searching for products to buy online — I am not complaining about that, it’s a rare thing to get paid for being an obsessive shopper — and of the things I spend my off-hours hunting for, none have burned my patience and time like the hunt for Bluetooth headphones. No,  [Read More…]

Is a USB-C dongle better than USB-C headphones?

Best answer: A USB-C dongle can be better than USB-C headphones. It all depends on the presence of a Digital Audio Converter (DAC) and its quality. If the DAC in the dongle is better than the DAC in the headphones, then you should go with the dongle. If the opposite is true, then don’t bother.

Newcomer uniAccessories launched a small crop of USB-C adapters on Amazon in 2018, and today it’s launching a Kickstarter for  [Read More…]
