Google Lowers the Price on their Headphone Dongle Dylan Duarte October 13, 2017 News We all like free things. If we can’t get them free, we want them as close to free as they can get. That’s why it was a good thing when Amazon dropped the price of their Lightning-to-3.5mm dongle to $30, five bucks cheaper than the Belkin model. Sure, Amazon’s price went back up to $35, but for that short while, five bucks was five bucks. They need to start getting cheaper, and now it’s Google’s turn to realize it. The Pixel 2 doesn’t have a headphone jack, which for must of us means dongle city. Consumers who purchase the Pixel 2 will get a USB-C-to-3.5mm adapter in the box, but you could always lose it, or purchase the phone used; there are plenty of reasons to have to buy one. A replacement used to cost $20, which is absurd. Google seemed to realize this and has since dropped the price to $9. Dongle’s need to keep going down in price, considering how important they are right now. It’s already a bad look for a phone manufacturer to require consumers to purchase a dongle just to properly use their phone. A high price point just twists the knife. Share This With The World!
