Google Made Another Headphone Dongle for the Pixel 2 for $12

New Pixel 2 Headphone Adapter

Even after making relaxing of Apple for removing the headphone jack in 2016, Google ended up removing the port itself accurate one yr later. While the reason behind this is to embrace wireless headphones, Google thankfully does provide a USB-C to 3.5mm adaptor for those who want to use wired headphones. Well, it's slightly thinner and more compact than the original adapter that shipped with the Pixel 2, but more importantly it offers lower latency and better battery life while connected to your phone. While the company remains very secretive about the hardware that will be launched at the event, the key devices expected to be unveiled are the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL smartphones.

Google plans to make a formal presentation on October 9 in NY.

The new USB-C headphone adapter costs $12, which is up from the $9 previous model, but still way cheaper than the original $20 price Google tried to sell it at. You won't notice any actual changes, as it's just 2.8mm shorter, and the other dimensions are less than a millimeter smaller. Since there is an integrated digital-to-analog converter hidden in the little cable, most of the gains are likely attributed to changes made to that section. But now Google is raising the price back up to $12 as its introduces a new model of adapter which is smaller and more powerful than its predecessor.
