    I want to ask if anyone is using USB C to 3.5 mm adapter for better sound output over OTG on OP 6?

    I found Moshi adapter on Amazon.in which supports DAC and better than CD sound quality.

    P.S. - I am using premium Sony earphones, though the sound clarity is good but on OnePlus 6 there is too much loss and distortion.

    Two questions:
    1) Why do you think that the USB-C port has the capability to output sound via an adapter, when the phone already has a 3.5mm jack?
    2) What is the impedance of your Sony headphones? The OP6 3.5 mm jack does not have a lot of power to drive high quality headphones, though my 300ohm Sennheiser HD650 do sound excellent through the headphone jack, just quiet.

    1). There is someone in the community who posted that a Htc dongle did work for him on his OP6 and the sound quality improved a lot.
    2). I have earphones whose impedance is around 32 ohms.

    Android supports audio over usb one versions 5.1 abd after.You can conect an external DAC and do the audio processing outside the Phone.

    I was thinking I had seen this before and tried to enable it.. I do not believe it worked.. unless you have to do something else along with enabling OTG? but i can try again. thanks!

    YES enable OTG via menu,also if there is no activity OTG gets disabled and you have to re-enable!
