For these wanting to choose up both the Sony Xperia XZ2 or XZ2 Compact, you’ll be properly conscious that neither handset has a 3.5mm headphone jack. For people who don’t need to eliminate their present wired setup, then Sony is together with a USB Type-C to 3.5mm Audio Jack Adapter within the field.
Of course, everyone knows large limitation of that is that you just can not charge your gadget while additionally listening to music on the identical time. This is probably going to be a limitation for all mobiles that omit the jack, until you go wi-fi, or who is aware of, we would see telephones with twin USB Type-C ports in some unspecified time in the future.
Anyway, Sony is making an attempt to do its bit to assist to ease the ache by launching a USB Type-C 2-in-1 Cable EC270, that may enable users to each listen to their wired headphones, and charge their gadget through USB Type-C on the identical time. The cable may even work with a headsets in-line mic and distant management.
There are some restrictions although, fast charging shouldn’t be supported. Also, if you happen to occur to personal among the older noise-cancelling headsets such because the MDR-NC31EM and MDR-NC750, you then’re out of luck as they’re not supported. If you’ve got a non-Xperia cellular, then we perceive this cable won’t work together with your phone due to the particular pin configuration that’s appropriate with the Xperia fashions solely.
An simpler resolution to all of this, would have been if Sony stored the 3.5mm jack. That would have been the patron pleasant possibility, slightly than coping with dongles. We’re unsure why Sony put us on this mess, however that is the long run (we guess).
