If you're currently rocking a device with a USB-C port, you could be listening to higher-quality audio by choosing a pair of USB-C headphones, such as the Lecone USB-C Earbuds (opens in new tab). Right now they're on sale for only $9.99 at Amazon when you clip the coupon on their product page and then enter promo code THXFANEB during checkout.
These headphones plug directly into your device's USB-C port and are equipped with a DAC chip and support for various digital input signals. The integrated in-line microphone allows you to take calls hands-free, while the 3-button remote lets you answer or end calls, pause music, adjust the volume, and more. Several sizes of eartips are included with today's purchase so you can find the best fit, along with a travel pouch where you can keep these headphones safe while on-the-go.
It's important to note that Lecone states on this product's description that Samsung devices aren't compatible with these earbuds' microphone; you'd only be able to listen to music with them, while the latest iPad Pro models can't use their in-line remote. A longer compatibility list can be found at Amazon so be sure to check that out before completing this purchase.
There are plenty of reasons why you should choose wired USB-C headphones over Bluetooth models, and this article at Android Central lists a bunch of them.
