[toggles behavior=”toggle”] [toggle title=”Press Release”]San Francisco, California, September 13, 2018 – OnePlus, today announced that it will be introducing an updated USB-C version of the company’s acclaimed Bullets V2, dubbed the Type–C Bullets. These new earphones are set to be launched alongside the company’s next device, projected for Q4 2018. The Type–C Bullets will be priced the same as the existing Bullets V2 at $19.95, and will be available for purchase on oneplus.com.
The new Type–C Bullets will be based on delivering a superior soundscape and will be a step up from Bullets V2, once again effectively balancing design with utility and versatility to enhance the overall audio experience. The Type–C Bullets will echo the metal design of the OnePlus Bullets V2. Each detail of these earphones is crafted with the unique attention to detail that OnePlus is known for – for example, to make Type–C Bullets easier to use, the company has added aramid fiber to the wire in-order to make the Type–C Bullets more durable and resistant to stretching.
The Type–C Bullets include improved sound quality. Music is heard how it was intended to sound thanks to a built-in high-end, professional DAC by Ciruss Logic. It has a higher dynamic range, higher signal-to-noise ratio and low noise floor. When compared to the 3.5 mm jack that uses analog, Type–C headphones ensures minimal loss of quality for a superior audio outcome.
According to a survey conducted by OnePlus, in early 2017, 80% of users used in-jack headphones regularly, while, in a poll in 2018, that number dropped drastically with 59% of users switching to wireless headsets. OnePlus is again demonstrating its flexibility, offering options for different users by developing Type–C Bullets to complement the already revered Bullets Wireless.
