I didn't really know what sub-forum this was mostly appropriate so mods can move this whereever they want. In smartphones this is becoming a debated topic in forums, and tahts about the increasing popularity of smartphone manufactureres removing the headphone jack in phones. with the release of google pixel another mainstream brand goes away with the headphone jack. The only other company left to completely kill the headphone jack in popularity for smartphones is samsung. and they are rumored to be doing it on the next galaxy. now the true question is: is a phone with headphone jack giving you better audio quality than USBC? or is a USBC type future really the way to go forward. i have a friend who argues that USBC is much better in adio quality and says thats the way we should be going forward so that a phoen can save more space and that headphone companies will make the headphones with included DAC inside of them so that smartphones can save space. thoughts?
