As you are aware, the venerable 3.5 mm headphone jack so commonly found on cell phones, tablets and laptops is getting axed in a slow but steady pace. This transition started with the iPhone killing the 3.5 mm for the Lightening , HTC with their newest phones, Google with its Pixel2 and 2XL , among others in order to have a more compact and slim design.
The 3.5 mm transfers stereo analog audio out of the socket, which means that all the “magic” of nice sound will be credited to the same phone, on the other hand USB-C transmits the digital audio data over the same headsets instead.
With this being said, here are the best USB-C headphones you can get on the market today:
The Engage 50 Stereo headphone is one of my favorites thanks to its 3 microphone noise canceling, Intelligent Volume Control, slim design and built in busy lights. So easy to adjust over the head, and Skype for Business Certified make this one of the easiest headsets to use on the market. Click HERE to know more about it.
The Jabra Engage 50 Mono, is as good as the big brother the Engage 50 Stereo, mainly for not so noisy working environment, built in busy light, adjustable boom arm with the nice 3 microphone noise canceling system making it one of the best, easy to use and adjustable with an extraordinary lightweight of 61g.

The latest addition to the USB-C corded headsets is the Plantronics Blackwire 7225 USB-C , this is the first USB-C corded headset with Active Noise Canceling, which I recommend specially in really loud environment and if you want to keep focus without distractions.
