With every new smartphone release, we like to reminisce about the times when you could use any pair of headphones to enjoy music. Yet, the newly released Google Pixel Fold is another smartphone that doesn’t offer a 3.5mm headphone jack. You’ll need to use other methods if you want to listen to audio through the Pixel Fold. Here are some of the best ways to get an optimal listening experience through the Google Pixel Fold.
USB TYPE C EARPHONES
One of the easiest ways to listen to music from your new Android phone without using adapters is simple wired type C earbuds. They usually go for reasonable prices on Amazon, where you can find an assortment of brands that make them. We here are MajorHiFi want to make sure we’re recommending the good stuff though, so if you’re looking for good sound quality from type C earbuds here is what to look out for.

USB TYPE C DAC DONGLE
If you already own a good pair of headphones, earbuds, or IEMs, and don’t wish to part ways with them, then I would suggest an upgraded type C DAC dongle to use with your Google Pixel Fold. The difference between these and a regular type C adapter is the potential for better sound clarity. Sometimes a simple 3.5mm adapter just isn’t enough to do your headphones justice, but these dongles might do the trick.
