Hi everyone,

I will be switching from Oneplus 5T to 7 Pro by next week.
For the first time, my phone will not have a jack port.
I have great (and expensive) Bose earphones with active noise reduction that I want to keep using, so I am looking to buy a usb-c to jack adapter, I have spotted many on Amazon and wanted your input as I have no idea whether their might be quality or compatibility issues!
Here are some links I spotted:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PF8Z6LB
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07P5T7QTF
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NVDT57C
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MS88XPB
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QQ4LV8F

What do you think?

The phone doesn't come with a dongle?

But you couldn't buy them during the community drops, so you're stuck with a £5 or £8 delivery charge for a £7 item, despite having just dropped £800 into their pockets for the phone itself!

Way to go guys; you couldn't just put one in the bloody box or allow us to buy one at the same time !!

Instead I scored a couple of cheapo dongles from Amazon with free next day delivery instead, which will still arrive quicker than the OnePlus item despite being a third of the all-in cost.

I agree, they could have included it since they took away the headphone jack.

I mean yeah it's a shame that they didn't include one buy I managed to pick up one during the community drop 🤔 I was more annoyed that for some reason my student discount was unavailable till October, even though I got my OP 5 over 2 years ago

I advice you to buy DAC and not a simple adapter since it has the same size, the Sonata HD DAC Cable II by Hidizs got pretty good reviews

I agree! A good 24bit or 32bit DAC built in to the USB dongle will give you a much better audio experience.

Still, it's about 10 X the cost of the basic adapter, so unless the onboard DAC turns out to be pants I'll probably stick with what's sitting in the mailroom for me
