    I'm fed up with Sprint and want to ditch my S8 plus for the XL 2 on Fi.. my only concern is no headphone jack. How have you all been coping without it?

    Wife and daughter have iPhone 8 and 8Plus using bluetooth headphones. They have no complaints. Just evolution I guess.

    The included adaptor works great. I don't miss the jack at all.

    I use Bluetooth for most things - headset for calls, stereo headset for music. In car (since I don't have bluetooth in the car) I use the adapter if I want to listen to something from the phone and it's worked well so far.

    Does the included Pixel 2 adaptor affect quality wired earphones? Like, does it reduce their quality in any way?

    How much are adapters themselves?

    The quality of the headphones can't be reduced...the quality of the sound coming in can. In the case of the Pixel, the adaptor has the DAC built into and sounds better than most phones that still have a 3.5 jack. I also have the adapter from HTC and Razer. The Razer has the most kick to it.

    I think they are about 10 bucks. The HTC dongle is 11 or 12. The Razer dongle is closer to 20 bucks.

    That's ridiculous.

    Whats ridiculous? They include one with the phone. 10 dollars to buy a spare seems reasonable. It's not just an adapter.... It has DAC built into it.

    I am fine without it but I have used blue tooth anytime I need media from any of my phones for awhile now.

    I truly thought I'd miss it, but I am actually loving and enjoying the dongle. Don't notice anything different and don't think it's a hassle to have the dongle. I think it's just something one will get used to. Plus, I find that I actually enjoy having one less port or opening that can potentially sustain water damage. I say go for it!

    I just might when I'm able to buy my phone off of the contract. The pixel 3 might be way too pricey anyway. And I could go another year without a notch.

    my take on no headphone jack missing is not a good move unless u go wirelessly but then it's another thing to charge up.. So I leave the dongle attached to the headphone so I don't lose or carry extra stuff. most my phones need dongles except for S8+ or S9+

    I hear you! I'm staying away from notches for at least a year and a half to two years.

    When I got my Pixel 2 XL I decided to get a wireless Bluetooth headset at the same time. I bought a Sony WH1000XM2 noise cancelling headset and the audio quality is superb. I love the freedom from outside noise and the freedom from wires.

    I use a set of 1st gen Bose QC35s. Great sound, noise cancelling. I got a free set of Sennheiser Momentum 2 wireless headphones from being a tester for Argos. My husband uses them with his new P2XL. He has put his dongle onto his Bose wired in case he needs to use them.

    I dont think I would like no headphone jack. I use Bluetooth most of the time but like the option to use wired if my headset goes dead. I suppose if they include the adaptor to use a wired headset I could deal with it.
