EricBall's Tech Projects - death of the 3.5mm 15mm TRRS socket?


Recommended Posts

Reading https://www.buzzfeed.com/johnpaczkowski/inside-iphone-7-why-apple-killed-the-headphone-jackgave me an idea. What if you combined the Apple W1 wireless chip with something like a Chu Moy pocket amplifier. So you plug your $tupidly expen$ive headphones into the pocket amp which is wirelessly connected to your phone.

On the actual removal of the headphone jack, I think Apple is ahead of the curve. Bluetooth based headphones are becoming more common and there are definite advantages to not having a cable between the your head and where you stuff your upgraded Walkman. I suspect not having a headphone jack will be common in the next generation of smartphones.
