    I am using both wireless (Bose Quietcomfort 35 and Sony WH-1000XM) and cable+jack headphones every day.

    Noise cancelling headphones are doing a lot of internal processing which in the case of e.g. Bose leads to delays of around 0.2s (or even 0.3-0.4 depending on firmware revision) between the video you are watching and the sound. The Bose forums contain several threads about this issue, but Bose basically can not do all that much to improve the situation with the current technology (probably).

    The audio lags are even more apparent when playing games or using music software.

    This is the reason why for many daily use cases I am falling back to cable headphones. Don't get me wrong, I love my wireless headphones, they are way more convenient (the cable does not get in the way, and I can move freely around the room). But depending on what I am doing, the lag issue with BT headphones just ruins the listening experience for me many times, so I have my cable headphones within reach always.

    Until now I appreciated that OnePlus was keeping the audio jack. I do not feel that Bluetooth headphones are good enough in 2018 to make them an equal alternative to wired.

    Right said same went with google, they made fun of apple and in the end they ditch the jack and still now Google phone is one of the best phone in the market not that it's from Google but it have added features and also it is expensive still so we have to see the bright side and from time to time forget things which mattered for us in the past now it's time to move on.

    It is a really sad decision. I understand removing something if there exists a better alternative or a better solution. A one port fits all is not the solution. What if I want to charge my phone and use the phone?. This scenario is not as uncommon as people think. I carry a powerbank around just for that purpose. There is also the lie of getting more space if that 3.5mm headphone jack is removed. What a bunch of BS. Till yesterday, OnePlus was commenting and even teasing apple of removing the headphone jack suddenly all is good because they are ready to do it?. Shame on you OnePlus.

    If Headphone Jack is there or not doesn't matter to me. Someday this was going to happen whether with 6T or 7/T.

    There will be a major difference to users who watch movies n play games on the go they can't plug headphones and obviously user is forced to use wireless headphones instead he has to carry Dash charge supported wireless . Let's see how customers welcome this change .

    Goodbye OnePlus. It makes me sad to see you becoming what you were mocking just last year. I'm leaving you and you'll guess why that is because it's not rocket science.

    Don't flatter yourself. I imagine @camohan found your rant binge irritating, not threatening.
    3.5 headjack is about to die. You may not like it but that is the way the cookie is crumbling.
    By the way, who are you oh representative of the community? Never seen you before. Probably just as well.

    By the way, a year ago I would have not liked the decision but now one year on I think it's normal. I may not like it but it is the future of ALL devices.

    Yes, more things to carry, more things to lose, more money to spend.

    All Chinese manufacturers are Apple fanboys. Just look at the Android skin they use.

    I've been using my QC35's since April watching a lot of YouTube at work and can't say I have noticed this at all. Sometimes the audio gets fuzzy (every 3 hours or so) but a simple Bluetooth off and on solves it. Using Huawei P20 Pro.

    I love them, it's noisy and I need to move freely and be detached from phone so bluetooth is well needed in this situation.
