Essential Phone's next module adds a 3.5mm headphone jack

Emmett Howard | 08 June, 2018, 18:46

Essential is one of the many smartphone makers that has eschewed the headphone jack, but what's this?

Essential, along with its MQA audio announcement, has unveiled their first adapter since that original 360 camera.

Called the Audio Adapter HD, the module adds a headphone jack and a high-resolution ESS Sabre DAC that has an "audiophile-grade amp". That's exciting for a couple of reasons. Plus, it uses our Click connect technology, so you can listen to music while still being able to charge your phone. Weirdly, the Audio Adapter HD will work with "almost" all types of 3.5mm headphones. Of course, the all-new Audio Adapter HD isn't free.
