    i use wireless headphones for years now.
    i only use wired headphone if i get out of battery on the wireless ones.
    people say quality is bad. well i have some cheap ones from soundpeats .. for getting things done around the house. and have some high end sony cans 300€ , i use sony's when i'm on computer and they are beautiful. The cheap soundpeats are brilliant for the price and my girlfriend uses the same model on commuting and loves them .
    experience the wireless freedom you won't come back to wired.. piece of advice do an informed and reviewed buy. don't Buy crappy headphones and then complain

    To all of you shouting greed at OnePlus for removing the headphone jack. Shout at Moto, HTC, Razer, and Xiaomi too.

    They are waiting to hear the word.

    You shouldn't play pubg on low battery in the first place. Experts recommend keeping device between 30% and 90% at all times. If you are going for 100% charge that is also fine.

    the very essential thing that the basic consumer desired is removed.... not all can afford buying the oneplus 6t and the bullet 2 headset at the same time..and if it is done just to promote the wireless headset buy oneplus it's not a commendable move... accepting the changes is what we have to do... don't you (op Fanboys) dare say that removing the headphone port improves the overall waterproofing the device as there are and have been many more devices with the headphone jack still on and still protected the device from water damage... all we guys can do is bicker about the fact that the headphone jack is gone and all our lamenting will fall on deaf ears..that is something that we have to accept and look forward towards the new features that the upcoming devices will bring and how well they compensate the removal of the jack

    true that..i was just going to post the same thing.
    i play heavy games on this wonderful beast.what about those upcoming one plus devices without jack lol.
    AND THOSE WHO FEEL THE FUTURE OF WIRELESS HEADPHONES
    THEY HAVE THEIR OWN CHOICES.
    BUT i personally hate the fact that i need to charge both of them.
    that's just me.
    imagine a situation where phone has 80% juice while u traveling and u forgot to charge up ur wireless headphones or earphones.what would u do?

    So Essential that a company doesn't have one.
    The removal of the headphone jack will help to improve waterproofing :rolleyes:
    As well as make room for more tech like a high quality DAC, bigger battery, and in display fingerprint sensor.

    I'll be happy if the wired bullets are fairly priced. OnePlus should either provide these headphones in box or give significant discount on purchase with the phone.
    Also I'm curious how much battery does wireless headphones consume (Bluetooth) compared to wired one.

    as i said the improvement of waterproofing has been achieved with the headphone jack still available on various devices...as per the new improvements larger fingerprint sensor etc... that's what I'm counting on for the compensation...do read my post before unnecessarily quoting it without any proper reply

    those are wired not wireless.all m saying that it's just not handy for me to charge both things.sometimes i can't keep track of the battery bar.i still sometimes forget to charge my phone but one plus's dash charge is so good that 10-15 minutes and enough for my day.
    and people do forgets so many things.without earphones i will be doomed without music

    I did read your post.
    But keep in mind even though waterproofing on other devices with headphone jacks is available, it is still another hole for water to enter through. HTC was incredibly good with water resistance. On the One models even though none had water resistant rating. But it wasn't until the HTC U11 was released that they announced it was safe in water. By minimizing the amount of ports, less water can enter the device. I'm sure OnePlus will capitalize on removing the headphone jack.
