When Apple decided to launch its iPhone without a headphone jack, there were not a few users setting the sound in the sky. Listening to music, videos online, talking on the phone or listening to podcasts, there are not a few exercises we usually use with headphones all day.
Although the company excused itself that removing the headphone jack was a matter of beauty so the signal was very good, handsome and small; we soon found reasons for this controversial decision. Apple introduced its wireless headphones, which is by far the most unprecedented achievement.
Of course, this Apple decision is mimicked by many other brands in the sector. Some prefer Google only for its high grades while the middle grade retains the headphone jack. But if there's an important firm in the Android landscape, that's Samsung, which just announced the recent launch of the Samsung Galaxy S20, that the headphone jack is officially dead
Forget about the headphone jack forever?
Times are changing … for better or for worse. Do you remember that the phones had removable batteries? Or when most smartphones had a notification LED? Although we'd like to rediscover old Android functions from years past, we must continue to look forward.
And the next natural step is to remove the headphone port. Not because users want it, not hopefully we believe that wired devices have many advantages over wire, but because the market tends to do so, not only at the high end, but also at the mid and high end.
The reasons behind this are just reasons to create a balanced and refined design. Brands apparently want to exploit the wireless market and because of this they have to force users to use them. Google said at the time that a user buying a mid-range can no longer buy wireless headphones is no longer an excuse, especially since there are cheaper devices such as Realme headphones.
In addition, considering that almost all products already have wireless headphones for sale – Google, Samsung, Xiaomi, Realme, Huawei- What durability will continue the cable bet?
Here's a guess, but 2020 is definitely the last year where we see terminals with headphone jack. Low and mid-range phones are growing with better technology specifications, better design and will start to have 5G technology. If a 200-euro phone already has all this, why not stop having a headphone jack?
In short, we'll have to get used to the idea that the future is the blue headsets. Comfort, the lack of cables and their quality have won millions of ears worldwide and we are not exaggerating when we say that once tested, the corded heads no longer miss. And if influential brands like Samsung are no longer betting on traditional headsets, know that all other companies won't.
