OnePlus took to its official blog to announce the new Type-C Bullets. This announcement comes right after the company confirmed that it was going to drop the 3.5mm audio jack on its upcoming flagship device. According to the post, the company claims that “this is more than just an update” over the existing Bullets V2. OnePlus also added that it has “made several big improvements” to the new Type-C Bullets promising “crisp and powerful sound” with “booming lows”, and “clear highs”.
OnePlus claims that the new version of its in-house earphones ensures “a comfortable fit”. Jaden C, Accessories Product Manager for OnePlus added that the company has used “aramid fibers” in the new Bullets Type-C to ensure that the wires of the earphones are “more durable and resistant to stretching”. The company also added a new DAC with the help of Ciruss Logic so that it can now provide music at a “higher dynamic range” with a higher signal-to-noise ratio along with something known as a “lower noise floor”. The company claims that this will help the music appear “clearer.”

The improvements will also result in increased bass along with “little to no loss” in the quality or the details of the music that the user is listening to. Jaden noted that the aim to launch Type-C Bullets was to bring the audio quality of Bullets V2 to earphones with Type-C connector.
OnePlus has pointed out that it will launch the new version of headphones sometime in Q4, which is likely to be alongside its next flagship device, the OnePlus 6T. The headphones are priced at Rs 1,490, and they will be available via online and offline retailers. The launch is a clear indication that the OnePlus 6T will be launched sans a 3.5mm audio jack. As previously reported, the company will also ship a Type-C to 3.5mm audio adapter along with the upcoming flagship smartphone so that users can use their existing 3.5mm earphones with the device.
