OnePlus has launched a brand new pair of wired earphones. The new Type-C Bullets earphones has a USB-C connector as the name shows and not a 3.5mm connector. In its official press release, OnePlus says the new connector isn’t the only change.
The earbuds of the Type-C Bullets has a metal design while the wires have aramid fibers which makes it “more durable and resistant to stretching”. It also has a new DAC from Ciruss Logic for a higher dynamic range, higher signal-to-noise ratio, and lower noise floor according to OnePlus. This means audio reproduction is clearer, of a higher quality, and with more bass.
So this isn’t just the Bullets V2 with a Type-C connector but a brand new product entirely. OnePlus says the Type-C Bullets will arrive in a few months which means it may be announced alongside the OnePlus 6T.
OnePlus just announced the new USB-C Bullet headphones. Time to say good-bye to the headset jack on the OP6T. "59% of users have switched to wireless headphones…" Built-in DAC from Cirrus Logic, same price as Bullets V2 (19,95 Euro). pic.twitter.com/EhOuHhb0wm

The Bullets V2 is currently priced at $19.95/€19.95 and even with the new upgrades, it will sell for the same price according to the above tweet from Roland Quandt. So big changes at the same price sound good (pun intended).
