Finally! OnePlus has just announced the product that so many Android phone users have been crying out for for many months: cheap, yet high-quality USB-C earphones to replace the analog ones we can no longer use with our phones that are deprived of headphone jacks.

The new OnePlus Type-C Bullets are an upgraded version of the very good Bullets Wireless that I reviewed back in 2016. The Bullets v2 were priced at $19.99, and OnePlus promises to keep the price unchanged with its new USB-C edition, while adding a few design and feature updates. The Type-C Bullets will come with a built-in Cirrus Logic DAC, which should make them compatible with most USB-C devices, including laptops and tablets. They’ll also have a built-in microphone and remote control.

OnePlus says it’ll release the new Bullets at the same time as its next flagship, which we already know will be called the OnePlus 6T and will feature a fingerprint reader built into the display. The specific timing of the release hasn’t yet been announced, but if OnePlus keeps to its traditional calendar, both the OnePlus 6T and the Type-C Bullets should be available to buy sometime this November, if not sooner.
