Not that much...
Not anymore, as soon as the Airpod was released.
Unlike Titanic's Rose who misses her Jack, I don't miss this jack at all...
Nah, I just do what every other inconsiderate fool’s been doing, watching videos at max volume while laughing my head off.
Seriously, though, I went Bluetooth long before Apple ditched that jack.
Nope. After using the airpods I can’t imagine going back to wired.
Not a single bit. BUT bluetooth interference is a nightmare, when you have so many devices using bluetooth.
I guess I’m the only one, but I do miss the headphone jack
I still do. Good though that adaptors came out which didn't render some of my gear useless with the iPhone...
Ever since Bluetooth headphones and earphones became easily available... nope not at all.
I do. Kinda tired to them going dead because I didn't charge it. The being wireless thing was great... only when it was charged
To tell you the truth, them speakers on the XS Max are far louder and crispier than I thought...alone on my own I don't need headphones or earphones...and no BT speakers because they usually tend to drop when that great moment comes in...
I’ve had the Airpods for almost 2 years, still miss the headphone jack. Can’t use my older, way better headphones and earphones
Mmm....yes you can. Three options:
I use the Astell & Kern XB 10, for in-ears and for days when I prefer to be ultra light (no double-stacked portable headfi gear).
Extra cost sir raypin, instead of free when we still had headphone jacks
Mm..yes, true, but better SQ due to better DAC and better amplification. iPhone + headphone = crappy sound quality. Not enough juice to properly drive the headphone, even if it has a low impedance rating. In any case, what I suggested is an option for those looking for better SQ in the absence of the 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Microsoft actually made a smaller headphone jack that has a smaller footprint inside thin smartphones. Apple eliminated the 3.5 mm to make way for other components and, yes, to help sell the Airpods ( it is a business). Every millimeter of space counts.
The diagram shows a folding TRS (tip, ring, sleeve) plug or the standard mini jack. Genius.
I'm in Manila now... Airline inflight entertainment does not have BT... Which means I had to carry another pair of earphones for my flight...
For my office PC... To make a call, I will need to pair the BT headphones again before calling... (Plug and play with the jack)
3 out of 10 times, I do miss the headphone jack despite having extensivley used bluetooth enabled in-ear earphones, going back way before the jack was omitted. There are rare instances wherein I find myself with battery depleted wireless in-ear earphones, and I would reach for the headset dongle to use my wired earphones. But then when my phone needs charging as well, I need to reach for another dongle, a Belkin branded lightning/audio rockstar connector dongle to enable me to charge my phone and listen to music at the same time.
There is a reason why dongles are the best selling Apple product for two years. People clamor for the old ways because it worked conveniently for them. Currently the Airpods are becoming a best selling accesory, adaptation is in effect. In any case, I miss the dongle-less life.
I do. I use wired earphones + adapter on my 8 plus and it sucks when I can't listen to music at my desk while the phone's charging.
The only time I'm using wireless earphones is when I'm running. But it's just another device I need to worry about (ie. when to charge. I'm lazy AF, sorry).
But yeah, it's been a year now so I guess I'm adapting quite well.
I have a small plug in device for airplanes that let me connect via Bluetooth to Bluetooth headphones.
