Greetings MIUIers,
  

     MIUI Quick Discussion is a new initiative introduced by @candicesu , me and @justzzshadz. Here the Device S/Moderators will be bringing you polls related to devices every week. Last week we discussed Do You Need External SD Card Slot for Your Phone in Future?  Here comes another interesting Debate, "Will USB type-C Earphone Replace 3.5mm Jack in Near Future?"

USB Type-C mainly started out to solve the problem of bigger and less adaptable ports. Now, it can be found on flagship smartphones (such as Mi MIX 2,  Mi 6 etc. ) laptops & even headphones. its actual adoption has been a bit slow.
Now let's discuss with the pros and cons of USB type-C Earphone & 3.55mm Jack.

p1.jpg

Pros of Type-C

  • 1. Yields Better Sound Quality
  • 2. Better noise control
  • 3. Better Phone Design
  • 4. lesser space used
  • 5. Reversible plug orientation and cable direction
  • 6. Better battery life compare to 3.5 mm


Cons of Type-C
  • 1. Availability
  • 2. Expensive
  • 3. Common Port for headphones and charger


Pros of 3.5mm port
  • 1. Conventional
  • 2. Affordable price
  • 3. Commonly used as Microphone
  • 4. Not replacing headphone jacks with USB-C

Cons of 3.5mm port
  • 1. The analog circuitry of 3.5mm audio can cause interference that disrupts other electronics in a phone
  • 2. Audible clicks and pops on connection & disconnection due to shorts


So, what is your opinion? Please share your views and opinion.

10-20 Best Replies will be sticked and will be rewarded 'MIUI Quick Discussion'' medal.


Special Thanks to Admin ma'am @candicesu for her continuous support and encouragement. @SaiTyson , @justzzshadz for their help & support. Also Thanks to all the viewers and participant of MIUI Quick Discussion.

is the future. we will see that more and more OEMs migrating to USB C earphone slot in near future. its main drawback is that it uses same port for charging as well but with the arrival of quick charging feature and wireless charging technology, users will be able to listen to music without much down time ...  we always need the best sound out put , what we have to sacrifice is maybe an hour of not listening to music while we keep the phone for charging..

I don't think it's necessary to replace the 3.5 mm jack port, cause many of the users wants a dedicated port for headphones and I'm one of them,for me it'll be such a pain to use the charger and headphones at the same time and also we have to look at the expenses,type c ports and cables are pretty expensive,so i think for me it's necessary to have a dedicated 3.5 mm port.

Yes, it will replace the standard 3.5 mm audio jack. Although this might take time since almost all phones made have this and people have a hard time adjusting to this. But as smartphone manufacturers decide to go with the flow and remove the 3.5 mm jack, then users will have no choice but to adjust to the changes.

Yes it will replace, but may take time!

#because I often face damage in the 3.5mm port audio resulting in damage to hardware such as [IC audio] on the device. and it's so sad. 😐
Experience is the best teacher..!!!

Yes USB Type-C Earphone will replace but it will take years. Currently still most of the smartphone and other devices manufactured such as speakers & headset are having 3.5mm jack. It is still used because old device which buyer's is buying supports 3.5mm jack only and not USB Type-C. So to be compatible will all devices buyer's are preferring 3.5mm jack. But in future as technology develops even more it will be eventually be replaced by USB Type-C.

It sounds like a good idea to replace 3.5mm jack with USB-C, but in future end, it cannot fully replace it.
One of the main reasons is because most earphones come in 3.5mm jack head.
Moreover, you cannot use USB-C port for connecting to PC or charging battery anymore while using earphone on it.
This might be quite inconvenient if you are using earphone as antenna for FM radio.

definitely the use of 3,5mm jack will run out in the near future. usb-c headphones will its place because if the easiness of using and the advantage only having just one type of connection standard. beside this Bluetooth earphones are even more comfortable than wired solutions. so the discussion about the headphone jack will end very soon

No, the jack shouldn't be replaced. USB connector in phone already used for charging purpose, imagine if we have to use the same port for the earphone, it will be use more than when we have separate port (jack) for audio, all that I'm afraid if we use it too often, it will break the port faster. So, jack is still on my preference, unless the phone has 2 separate USB connectors available which is not aesthetic.

Now days, 3.5 mm jack is better but we can observe that is changing. When engineers implement new solutions which can improve USB C we will change our habits and maybe will love it.

I think USB-type C port audio is expensive, so it's and will be used only for High End and Premium devices.
Low and Mid Range Phones need still a 3.5 mm port to mantain smartphones price affordable

No doubt  USB type-C has more advantages over 3.5mm audio jack in terms of audio quality. Since all phones and laptops don't support USB type-C yet it will take some time to generalize this technology. It is still an expensive technology in comparison to 3.5mm  jack. I think if production cost of this technology get reduced, manufacturers will be able to use it in all new devices of all price range in the near future.

Basically I'm not a fan of one port for all, especially when it comes to 3.5mm audio jack. With one port for all rules, put the headset and the charger with constant short-interval will reduce the age of the port itself.

Another problem with USB Type-C is it needs another adapter for DAC yet the port is on the bottom of the phone and highly unlikely will put in top or top side of the phone.

I think in short time usb will be more used, but before it overtake 3.5mm, wireless audio will be mature enough to be leader technology on portable audio.

Yes it will replace, but may take time. People love to see 3.5mm audio jack in their phones because type c head phones are very expensive. Using the dedecated Audio amplifiers in smartphones (like the one in MI A1) sounds better . People generally use type c to 3.5mm jack cable to connect their earphones this effect the quality of the output sound. So the people who listen lot of music using headphones don't like the quality of the sound. In my opinion when the 3.5mm jack is gets replaced by type c port the OEM's want to offer good quality type c cable earphones with the smartphones or sell the ear phone for a affordable price so everyone can make use of it.

Using type-C creates more problems than it solves. The biggest issue is the impossibility to charge the device while listen music or watching YouTube And if the availability of wireless charging can solve the listening problem, there is no easy way for charging while watching videos. The removal of the audio jack perhaps saves some space, but we see how bad the space is used. Huge phones with huge bezels are flooding the market In the end we have more expensive devices which require wireless charging, DAC in adapter, cause driver issues just because the 3.5 mm jack should be removed (because Apple and Google did it).

We have to move ON, replacing the 3.5mm jack is good move but positioning of the USB type C is the key... If bottom, its difficult to use and high risk to be broken. Good if position it at the top or redesign the USB type c plug, therefore it is more user friendly and reliable.

I think that the accelerated evolution of this world of the smarthphone will lead us to replace the 3.5mm jack with the USB type C, however, it will take time because we are very comfortable with the 3.5mm jack and its use is very widespread.
