OnePlus’ “T” line has represented the affordable alternatives to its numbered series (like OnePlus 8T) or the slightly improved versions thanks to several months of tech advancement (like OnePlus 7T). After the temporary ditching in 2021, the company again debuted a “T” model, the OnePlus 10T below the 10 Pro, with some features superior than the latter while the others not quite as good.
As you may have noticed, the OnePlus 10T doesn’t come with a micro SD card slot. Besides, it doesn’t support wireless charging, either. Despite these, can you expect a 3.5mm headphone jack on OnePlus 10T? The answer is, sadly, no. The OnePlus 10T does not feature a 3.5mm headphone jack. Instead, it supports a USB-C audio.
In the past few years, more and more flagship smartphones have ditched the headphone jack, and now this trend has spread over to more affordable phones. On OnePlus 10T, you can solely rely on stereo speakers or Bluetooth audio if you want to hear sounds from the phone. It’s not that a big deal, as wireless audio technology has matured recently and you are a lot of great options to choose from, such the company’s own OnePlus Buds Pro.
If you prefer to use traditional wired headphones, you can also buy a USB-C to 3.5mm dongle.
- 💗【Multi-function Dongle】This compact usb c to aux adapter can connect your usb c devices without audio jack to headphones, headset, speakers and other audio devices. Call, volume control, pause via function keys on the headphones are possible.
- 🎵【Smart DAC Chip】The USB C to 3.5mm audio adapter features a Smart DAC chip. It is low power consumption, excellent and stable decoding performance, and maximum support for 16Bit/48Khz audio sampling rate. The DAC chip can also convert digital audio signals to analog audio signals and keep the original sound quality of your headphones.
Despite the lack of 3.5mm headphone jack, the OnePlus 10T is still a very capable smartphone. Its processor, the newest Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chip from Qualcomm, is better than its Pro sibling. While the other key aspect is the charging speed, which, at 150W, is lightning fast. The phone has a compatible charger in the box, and you can reach the charging speed by enabling the mode in the Setting menu and using the charger.
