Google updated its USB-C headphone adapter just in time for the Pixel 3
Like it or not, 3.5mm headphone jacks are going the way of the dodo. Even after making fun of Apple for eliminating the headphone jack in 2016, Google ended up removing the port itself just one year later. In fact, the Pixel 2 shipped with a USB-C headphone jack adapter that looks mighty similar to Apple's own pack-in dongle.
At first, Google charged a stunning $20 for the adapter on its own, but quickly lowered the price down to $9 to match Apple's own adapter when consumers (understandably) revolted. But now Google is raising the price back up to $12 as its introduces a new model of adapter which is smaller and more powerful than its predecessor.
