Don't Freak Out Because Smartphones Are Getting Rid Of Headphone Jacks

I’m actually indifferent because I’ve settled on a nice pair of BT headphones, but it’s sad how people with Lightning headphones can't listen to music and charge their phones at the same time.

آ…this might not be so bad . Bluetooth-based headphones are already becoming more ubiquitous, and switching from an analog to digital connection opens up possibilities for making headphones more versatile down the road. (Noise canceling for everyone!) Various headphone manufacturers have already started launching USB-C - and Lightning -based models, too. Time heals all wounds. To start, though, it could be rough. For most people, the difference in audio quality between affordable Lightning or USB-C headphones and affordable 3.5mm headphones is likely to be negligible. If anything, the cheap internals in the former might make things worse.
