New headphones from OnePlus? Sure, I’ll have a look at that email. They’re an updated version of the acclaimed Bullets V2, but wait a minute, these USB-C headphones are being launched to coincide with their next phone.
Which can only mean that their new phone won’t have a traditional 3.5mm jack port.
They tell us that the new “Type-C Bullets” will be priced at just £15.99, which is the same price as the existing Bullets V2.
The new Type-C Bullets will have a similar metal design but will “deliver a superior soundscape” with a high-end, professional DAC by Ciruss Logic and aramid fiber woven into the wire, which makes them more durable and resistant to stretching.
Expected launch is sometime in Q4.

OnePlus to introduce all-new Type-C Bullets with the launch of next device
London, 13 September, 2018: OnePlus, the leading premium smartphone maker, 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, £15.99 in the UK, and will be available across online and offline channels.
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.
Type-C Bullets include in-line controls, a mic for calls on-the-go, and pair beautifully with OnePlus devices, allowing users to adjust the sound enhancement configuration for a more customized sound.
