Dometalican, 15 Mar 2020Simple TL;DR: Until Bluetooth headphones have virtually ZERO latency, have incredible quality ... moreBluetooth will never have zero latency. It's a bloated standard. It's also vulnerable to potential interference, since it operates near the super congested 2.4GHz frequency.
Quality, low latency audio will need a new standard.
I wear headphones all day, every workday. For me comfort, noise isolation and audio quality
are paramount -- not something that I would compromise on.
I'll choose the music player (phone) to match the headphones, not the other way around.
And the music player would better run all day, i.e. the phone must be able to charge at the same time.
i am not claiming to be an audiophile but when i want to listen to the best quality music i have a dap for it (previously a cd player), and connect it to our hifi system at home. now, if i want to listen to high quality music on the go i bring the dap and a wired headphone with me. otherwise, if i simply want to listen to music i go with my smartphone and either of my 2 twses. i have not met anyone who is serious about their music quality and use their smartphones to listen to music. i was a professional club dj, i have produced locally for some artists previously, and i have worked with sound engineers so i know all about music quality. aside from these i grew up to a family of artists who are picky with their music quality. this is just my own opinion based on my own preferences- if you are really serious about music qualiy, get a proper dap and high-end wired headphones.
The point is it's about versatility. You want to use Bluetooth, go ahead, you probably have a good reason. You want wired headphones, no problem, they have their advantages.
Not including the jack is anti-consumer. Plain and simple. There is no good reason, at all, to remove it, especially since phones seem to get thicker again to include bigger batteries (and bigger cameras).
Daily reminder that you can enjoy true wireless headphones AND keep the headphone jack on your phone.
Having a jack does not prevent you from listening with Bluetooth but lacking a jack does prevent you from listening with wired sets.
I don't use a phone without a headphone jack. Listening to music is one of my hobbies and I like to use wired headphones. I don't like dealing with bad battery life and fiddly connections on most Bluetooth headsets. And wired headphones just sound better.
I still have a pair of Sennheiser HD600 that i have bought in 1998 , 22 years ago . Changed the padding a couple of time , still work flawlessly and way way above any kind of other wireless can on the market at the same or above price.
I am thinking of upgrading to Galaxy S10 to preserve my headphone jack option and fm radio!
card board, 15 Mar 2020It's old, we should've move on to a newer technology. Today phone should've stick with balanc... moreYou know what else is old technology? Speakers! Let's make a phone without speakers, because speakers are old tech, and we need to get rid of old tech for no reason
For me big headphones are better than earphones. You can enjoy your favorite songs with great bass and loudness. If you listen on laptop or computer it will be even better.
Still has the best Audio quality and it is important to some.
WazzaG, 15 Mar 2020And you obviously don't have a good grasp of.... Oh forget it, I'm fed up dealing with someone... moretechnological stone age???? lmao no. Well yes the tech has been around for a century but is there any that beats the quality? nah fam, so how'd you even register it as a stone age tech? u trippin bruh. Aight we get it u got the money to satisfy them greedy corporates scheme, but hey you know you can still use them tws even if ur phone still has the jack, or I guess u dont know about that.
cyber , 15 Mar 2020greedy companies wants to sell their ~150 euro wireless crap that can reproduce ~15 euro wired... moreYes. Sony Mobile said after MWC 2018 (XZ2 press) that they got orders from above to make it jackless because sales of wireless are higher than wired.
Then they realized you do not need to do it. Better giving all options.
I think it is one of many reasons of the HTC fall.
Sony xperia 1 ii has it and they'll take my money this time... sorry Samsung can't do without headphone jack and SD865...tired of those poor Exynos...
Can't wait for Sony...
1 more reason I'll skip the S20 series and wait for Sony xperia 1 ii...
It's a complete package with everything I want...
