Foxtrot2Novmbr, 23 Jan 2018But you know that wired headphones has its own problem when it comes to using it. When you are... moreyes but you don't understand that the removal of the headphone jack is not necessary for me to be able to listen to BT headphones. Why not have the option so i can use both BT and the headphone jack? this is a dumb move especially when samsung has not yet removed the headphone jack.
I supposed not to believed this, Sony is the famous brand with a very quality audio , and everyone knows dongle looks fugly, (apple cough, cough)
Sony should not do this or else mostly fans will be getting disappointed and worst might leave Sony into ashes, hopefully not.
If Samsung with no headphone jack, it must be trends because they hire trolls to praising and brain wash people and leading people to believe it. But there are smarter user that don't brain washed by the so call deep black marketing strategies.
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2018Sony fans are an easily appeased lot.An extremely easy one, I must agree.
If Sony bring the USB type C connector for headphone it would be better than iPhone I mean it is must be solid and sturdy than lightning connector cheap pins. I must say nothing is perfect but a USB-C connector is definitely durable than lightning connector. Moreover Sony definitely bring more support to USB-C headphone and plenty of choices than competitors.
Eldamri, 23 Jan 2018I think iliminating the 3.5mm jack will not be an issue to some. I'm using z5 compact and alwa... moreThe main problem with that argument is that Apple 'led' the way when the way wasn't worth leading. It's like taking a wrong turn and managing to get to the right place, as it's turned out the advent of more and more wireless options over time has led them to be right but the idea is that can only really be attributed to them being right now and not all the time they was doing it. 3.5mm is still being accommodated too but usually through dongles / peripherals so this suggests even at this stage it's not ready for people to give up the 3.5mm jack entirely. I have a Bluetooth headset and prefer to use the wire because it never runs out of charge on me then and it overall sounds better. Wireless is 'cool' for dealing with one less wire but I'm meh on that issue, I can handle a single wire.
Foxtrot2Novmbr, 23 Jan 2018Those problems only happen if you have a bad music file. And if the phone is out of range. If ... moreI'm sure "most" people are still using wired earphones. And in case if you don't know it... BT connection with LDAC codec results in lower quality audio than the wired connection, if the audio source is the same. Wireless cannot beat wired when it comes to absolute audio quality. You can minimise the gap (and that's what LDAC exactly does), sure, but it will never be able to provide superior quality. If you don't care much about the quality of the sound much then I don't think you will have any problems with that. The issue here is, many people do.
Btw, LDAC codec is not exclusive to Xperia anymore. You can buy Huawei Mate 10 Pro or Pixel 2 and the audio quality from your wireless headphones is going to be identical to your Z5 Premium!
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2018People can accept iPhone without headphone jack but Sony can't? Why so much hate?Apple received as much hate as Sony is receiving right now when they removed the headphone jack with iPhone 7. Sony is being blamed not because everybody hates it, but due to the simple fact that many people consider the removal of headphone jack is meaningless and outright ridiculous.
I think iliminating the 3.5mm jack will not be an issue to some. I'm using z5 compact and always use a bluetooth earphones. I can live w/o the jack. Looks like apple is always leading the way from non removable battery w/c is a considered a con in the past and now the jack. Maybe soon there will be no sd card slot in our phones.

Anonymous, 23 Jan 2018Making excuses for Sony already. Let's see if these guys sing a different tune when Sony decid... moreIts not excusing, but a solid prediction based on a Sonys own CEO interview.
If no 4.4 mm or 3.5 mm jack on new flag Im the first to say No thank you Sony.
But you will surely no doubt continue with your usuall "work" even if it will have advanced 4.4 mm...
I can accept the USB type C as the connector to headphone and charging port at the same time because I don't like the lightning connector using the baby copper pin for connect, those pins are like a baby finger must take care of it, once scratches or broken must be regret and replace a new one. USB type C is very solid and sturdy than lightning connector.
Making excuses for Sony already. Let's see if these guys sing a different tune when Sony decides not to implement 4.4mm.
Mitochondria, 23 Jan 20184.4mm? thats bigger than 3.5mm and even more uncommon too. In the age of manufacture always sl... more4.4 mm is the future of sound quality, enabling wired balanced audio that enhances signal strength output by double and eliminates noise interruption to 0.
Sony already produces hi res Walkman products with it, and headphones with 4.4 mm jack and balanced audio.
So it is only reasonable Sony will implement its innovation into their smartphones, as it is a way forward in hi res sound quality performance
Anonymous, 22 Jan 2018Louder audio? LDAC or whatever codec recompress your audio, so even if ldac is good standalone... moreThose problems only happen if you have a bad music file. And if the phone is out of range. If you have a HD audio file. And is within range of bluetooth. Would you encounter those problems? Most people are now using bluetooth headphones so that it would be hassle free when it comes to wires.
ren122, 23 Jan 2018you dont need ldac because its plugged in dug. what kind of redudant statement is that. WIth ... moreBut you know that wired headphones has its own problem when it comes to using it. When you are listening to your music. Your phone would be mostly on your pocket. If the wires are too long. There's a high chance that you would accidentally pull the wire of the headphone downwards. Another problem is when you accidentally dropped your phone. If your headset is in your ear, while the unit drops. There's a tendency to get a loose wiring on headphones or earbuds. Meanwhile, on bluetooth devices like mine. I don't encounter those anymore. What's even more is it's hassle free!
