$5 off the going $12 price, bringing it in line with no name versions. Mine arrived in less than 48 hours in full sealed retail packaging and works great with my note 10.

I'm not saying this is not good... this may be great... it does say "google". As long as it works, it's great.

After buying a few of these, the one that worked for me was the "oneplus" one. Here is a link taken from google... did not try to find the best deal or anything...

Whats the point of going to usb-c only when you have to buy all these damn converters because hardly anything is compatible?!? As the old saying goes, if it ain't broken than don't fix it!

For charging going to common USB C is game changer..


for Audio they created a problem or market condition hoping everyone will bu new headphones / audio equipment.. so yes, they broke to make you fix again by spending more money.

Technology evolves. And as the new phases in and the old adopters remain, adapters will always exist. Remember those cassette tape adapters? Why didn't we just stick with cassette tapes? You get the idea...
Technology doesn't usually 'devolve' though. Audio through 3.5mm is undoubtedly better than through usb-c with a dongle or through BT. Samsung has been waterproofing for many years with 3.5mm. I'm guessing the more likely reason for the removal of 3.5mm is to sell more wireless headphones, which has nothing to do with tech evolving. It's very rare to see better tech phased out for worse tech, which is what Apple gave us here.

I can't gaurantee that it will work with your device. I had a hell of a time finding one that worked for my Hauwei M5.

That's very strange. I doubt the Apple DAC is the problem. I have been using my dongle with my laptop, desktop, and phone without issue. However, Android only has Audio Device Class 1.0 and mishandles the majority of such dongles so you'll get 2/3rds output volume. This is not an issue with the dongle, but with AOSP not being up-to-date regarding USB audio device support. To clarify, this issue only occurs when used with an Android device.

From an audiophile perspective, it's one of the best buys you can make. You won't find a better USB-C DAC/amp dongle under $50. The audio output is extremely clean and will adequately power most consumer-grade gear.

The Pixel dongle, on the other hand, is not. If you have tried the Apple dongle and need higher volume, try the Pixel dongle. Google manually whitelisted it to output full gain rather than 2/3rds (happens to Apple, Samsung, and many other dongles as well). I believe Target is selling the Pixel 3 dongle (2nd generation dongle), which is inferior to the Pixel 2 dongle in distortion, dynamic range, and power. The first generation dongle (that came with the Pixel 2) is decent and will likely satisfy most consumer demand. The difference between the 2nd gen dongle and 1st gen (or Apple dongle) might not be meaningful enough to matter at $5-$10, but if volume is adequate I would definitely recommend the Apple dongle. It outputs full gain on my laptop and desktop and has worked perfectly for me the past year. I believe all three mentioned dongles support OMTP and CTIA, which are the ways to pinout the mic and buttons (remember how old EarPods had buttons but would not operate on most Android and Windows devices?), so any headset with a mic/button should work.
I have an Essential PH-1 that has issues with the Apple dongle, but I found a way to fix it with root. Without the fix it outputs louder on one channel, and like you said it's quiet. The fix just runs the alsa_amixer command to adjust the output. https://forum.xda-developers.com/...e-t4004557

If only the shitty USB-C port on my Pixel 3 didn't get loose after a year of use.

Went through 2 of these dongles which both eventually barely hold a connection.

The stock headphones and charging cable are now getting touchy as well.

Such garbage technology.
I've had my 3a since November. It's already loose.

Get a sewing needle and use it to clean out the USB-C port. I'd bet money that you have a ton of dust caked up in it. Should fix the problem.

How about a toothpick instead to avoid metal to metal contact?
