It’s time to say goodbye to the headphone jack but… why?
The 3.5mm jack is slowly dying and that’s a fact. All the brands are jumping on the bandwagon and they have their reasons, some of them “justifiable”. We are not in favor of removing it but, in this article, we tell you all the reasons why plugging in headphones is doomed.
The reasons why brands remove the headphone jack
The last to confirm that it will not have a jack has been the OnePlus 6T. It was precisely one of the last brands that remained faithful… but not for much longer. We do not roll anymore, below you have all the reasons that can make change your mind:
- The most obvious is the savings it entails. You may think that it doesn’t really cost anything, but to be honest, who doesn’t want cheaper production costs?
- The use of space It is the one that has the most weight from our point of view. With the arrival of fingerprint readers under the sensor or screens without frames, the interior space is getting smaller and a few more centimeters are key.
- Waterproofing a mobile is easier with one less hole to worry about. This also represents significant cost savings.
- Boosting sales of Bluetooth headsets It is important for many brands. Without going any further, OnePlus has its “Bullets” and removing the jack is very profitable. Much.
Looking at it from a more general plane really those who win are the brands. At the end of the day, the consumer only loses a very useful tool and for this reason we encourage brands not to remove it. In any case, everything indicates that in a couple of years it will be a thing of the past.
We must also say that this is a good time to include it and stand out from others although they will have to be careful when removing it. Only time will tell, who knows, it may actually be reborn again.
