Foxtrot2Novmbr, 22 Jan 2018I have a z5 premium dual. And I used the sony bluetooth brand MDR-EX750BT. Not only it has an ... moreyou dont need ldac because its plugged in dug. what kind of redudant statement is that. WIth direct connection you get better connectivity than with LDAC because its direct physical contact.
Anonymous, 22 Jan 2018What a joke. So we are going back to 2005 when sony ericsson used to provide their walkman... moreWe need to get away from the 3.5 mm , it's obviously the past. Dongles are only here for the inbetween era , ideally most headphones would come with usb-c support by default...

Why this fetish for 18:9?
For messaging, browsing, you know the mains apps ... less scrolling in general
18:9 is a good move if it is also accompanied by an almost complete elimination of bezels (keeps the device's ratio about the same as before without making it too oblong).
IN FLA, 22 Jan 2018Really? How many Sony phones have you owned? Do you own a phone?This has nothing to do with future no-3.5mm jack phones. I own a Huawei and that doesn't mean there's a chance i'm going to buy a Huawei without the jack. Sony or any other brand, does not matter. It does only to fan-boys. Either you need the 3.5mm jack or you don't. The brand doesn't change that.
Anonymous, 22 Jan 2018Sony has become a mere trend follower.sad but true.
Good. If all other manufacturers follow suit we'll soon have far less needless and annoying whining on forums.
Sony Xperia Fan, 22 Jan 2018Calm the hell down, guys. Sony is not removing the headphone jack. They're just going to make... more4.4mm? thats bigger than 3.5mm and even more uncommon too. In the age of manufacture always sliming down till as thin as knife, I have no confident Itll be widely implemented.
RIP Sony straight away, it barely produces any good phones and barely have market share in any major market, this will definitely end Sony agony if we talking about flagship model
If that dongle can produce better sounds then I'm all for it. It's true with the HTC dongle. So much better sounds than the 3.5 jack
Calm the hell down, guys.
Sony is not removing the headphone jack. They're just going to make it even better.
In short, 3.5mm will be moved to the USB Dongle while 4.4mm jack might be retained in the same position as the 3.5mm jack on Sony phones or maybe at the bottom of the phone.
Here's what Kaz Hirai said:
"There is a lot of merit in headphone jacks.
"If we're talking about improving the audio quality of music coming out of smartphones there are newer balanced jacks that we have developed in Japan.
"It's a different form factor jack but it provides for a better sound quality in Hi-Res Audio.
"So, if we want to continue to improve the sound quality maybe saying goodbye to the headphone jack is not such a great idea - especially on the premium smartphones that will be coming on to the market soon."
Anonymous, 22 Jan 2018LOL "product experience"? Why do i have to own a phone with no 3.5mm to know it's total bull? ... moreI smell some sort of triggering inside of your heart lol.
But he is right though. People hate it when Sony tries to push the boundaries of technology. For example, when Sony introduced the first ever waterproof smartphone, peopld b*tch*d like "who needs a waterproof phone? I don't live underwater. Sony s*cks!" Now Apple and Samsung are copying them and it has been an essential feature for every flagship device. It makes me wonder if they could still remember that it was Sony that brought this feature to smartphones.
You'll see, 4K HDR screens will be accepted by people after Samsung and Apple do it. Until now, people criticize Sony's 4K HDR screen smartphone as sort of a gimmick or useless.
What is their next plan? Remove headphone jack form next WALKMAN and go 100% wireless?
Alien , 22 Jan 2018I'm exactly in the same situation as you..
If they're removing the 3.5mm jack I'm jumping boa... moreafter 16 consecutive xperias,, i will probably jump boats to pixel or galaxy even tho i have mdr 950
