Will the waterproof TYPE-C completely replace the traditional headphone jack?

along withWaterproof TYPE-CWith the launch of, many electronic products will directly replace this type of interface in addition to the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack. Type-C USB interface has audio output capability, which can improve the sound quality provided by electronic products.

The waterproof TYPE-C has 24 pins and can have functions that the 3.5mm headphone jack cannot. Its digital audio model and analog audio model are not on the same pin, so it can have a richer expansion function. The Type-C USB interface not only has audio playback and input/output functions, but also has the functions of data transmission, charging and connection to other devices. Today's electronic devices have higher requirements for interfaces, and only having an audio playback function cannot meet customer requirements. For example, the interface of a mobile phone must be a multi-functional assembly. Compared with the 3.5mm headphone jack, the waterproof TYPE-C has more functions and can better meet the needs of current electronic devices. In addition, the 3.5mm interface is cylindrical, and its pins do not have directivity. If you need to add pins, the contact area of ​​the plug will be reduced. The feasibility is not high, and the 360° rotatable 3.5mm interface is relatively severely worn.

Whether it is from the waterproof TYPE-C function or its service life, it is better than the 3.5mm interface, can it completely replace the headphone interface? In terms of current technology and market demand, the C-type USB interface cannot fully replace the 3.5mm interface. There are still many customers in the market who like to use the 3.5mm headphone jack, and the waterproof TYPE-C can't realize the functions of charging and audio output at the same time, which can't meet people's needs for listening to songs while charging.
