I believe you have read my article about Truly Wireless Earbuds. Now, in this article I will talk about the Type C USB headsets that you may like. Though there are wireless or truly wireless earbuds, there are lots of people who like to use the old school items. Despite being old school, using a wired headset gives you many advantages than using a wireless headset. As for an example, those earbuds don’t fall from your ear and won’t touch the ground. Because they will be hold by the wire. And also they do not get lost every time. You can wrap the wire around your mobile phone or whatever device you are using those things on (Do I sound like Hannah from 13 Reasons Why?) and best of all you don’t have to charge them just plug and play. Well then, let’s see what we have got here on BestCaseEver.com

1. OfsPower Type-C Headphone Microphone, USB-C Earbud Mic, USB Type C Earphones Volume Control

If there are microphone and a control button in your headset, what else do you expect from it? (Nothing! I guess). This OfsPower Type-C Headphone is equipped with a built-in microphone and control button that allows you to skip/pause/play a song or answer/reject a call. The earbud design is quite fitting for your ear. But since the earbud isn’t covered with a rubber tip, I doubt that it will cause some pain after longer use. The enhanced noise cancelling tech reduces the sounds of the outer world and it let you to be alone with your favorite music all the day, all the time.  The enviro cord is made of very flexible and environmental friendly TPU (they say it is environmental friendly) that will last long even if you pull it off accidentally. The headset can be used with a wide range of items that is compatible with USB-C port, such as smartphones, laptop, tablets and of course GoPro devices.

Pros,

  • Good sound quality with noise cancellation tech
  • Control button
  • Fitting earbuds
  • Flexible cord
  • Cheap and the best at its price

Cons,

  • No rubber tip

2. Acessorz Wired In-Ear Magnetic EarBuds with Mic, Stereo Bass Noise Cancelling Headphones

Only Supporting Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Google Chromebook, HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro/P20, HTC 10 & U11, LG G5/G6, Essential PH-1 and Razer Phones this may not be the headset that you were looking for. So go on only if you are an owner of one of those phone I mentioned above.

Acessorz Type C earphones allows you to listen to quality and clear music or sounds with perfectly balanced bass via its silicon capped ear-buds. Also those silicon caps help you to use the headset without any pain for quite a while. And just like all other devices, these earbuds filter those annoying sounds from the environment and provides clear sound via its noise cancelling tech. The control button for skip/pause/play song or answer/reject calls is situated in way down your neck. It is easy to reach by hand but it will be a problem when you are in a call – you will have to hold it near your mouth. Since the cord is 1.2M long you won’t have any problem with it (unless the distance between your ears and your pocket is longer than 1.2M). In addition to all these things, these earbuds have a built-in magnetic tips in it. That magnetic tips will be a help to keep the earbuds together. And of course there will be a 6-month warranty to the item.

Pros,

  • Good sound quality with noise cancellation tech
  • Silicon caps provides more comfort to the ears
  • 2M long cord
  • Built-in magnetic tips in earbuds

Cons,

3. HTC Usonic USB Type C Headset

When I saw the picture of this HTC headset, I thought it was a blue earth-warm (guess I’m wrong). This headset proves that nothing can be measured by its outlook. The headset is equipped with a HTC DAC chip that converts normal or poor 16bit analog audio into high quality 24bit digital sound waves. And the control button can be used to answer/reject calls or skip/pause/play songs and the built in mic will allows you to talk while driving or riding a bike or something else. The earbuds are great and there are three pieces of ear pads which is SmallMediumLarge allowing you to choose what fits best in the ear. Many users have said that this is the similar headset that comes with the HTC U11+ and if you are going to buy this at HTC company it will cost about twice than this –  this is the best replacement for the original one. Just make sure your device is compatible with HTC Port C and the headset won’t work on Google Pixel 2 models.

Pros,

  • Good sound quality
  • Extra ear pads in three sizes (S-M-L)
  • A good replacement for those who lost the headset in HTC U11+

Cons,

  • Not compatible with every device

4. Xiaomi Mi ANC Earphones Hybrid USB Type-C Charging-Free Mic Line Control Music Headset

With a titanium plated earbuds, this Xiaomi headset is bit expensive when comparing to the others. The headset supports the noise cancelling technology and has a control button that allows you to answer/reject calls or skip/play/pause songs. But that is not the problem, the headset only works fine with Xiaomi 5, Xiaomi 5S, Xiaomi 5S Plus, Xiaomi MIX, Xiaomi note2, Xiaomi MAX2, Xiaomi MIX2, Xiaomi note3, Xiaomi 6 phones and some other devices will refuse the headset because of the chip that used in the headset. Even some devices accepted it, the noise cancelling and control button may not work. And if the headset doesn’t work due to those compatibility issues, the sellers warn you NOT to return it saying it was a product issue. Beware before buying and skip this item if you are not a Xiaomi smartphone fan.

The wire cord is 1.25M long and it is thin (use with caution). The earbuds are well fitting into the user’s ears and may cause bit ache if use for too long. The sound quality is attractive and it has a good bass level. You must think twice before spending 70 bucks on this item.  The noise cancelling will take care of most of the other sounds that surrounds you.

Pros,

  • Good sound quality with great noise cancelling
  • Lengthy wire cord

Cons,

  • Not compatible with most devices
  • Upper wires are too thin
  • Expensive

5. Libratone Q ADAPT USB-C In-Ear Noise Cancelling Headphones (Cloudy White) MADE FOR PIXEL DEVICES

Libratone Q ADAPT is the most expensive and probably the most functional headset in this list. The headset comes in common black and white colors. The headset is mainly targeted for Google Pixel phones because it perfectly supports Pixel, Pixel 2 and Pixel Books. The headset is equipped with ANC (Adjustable Noise Cancellation) tech and you can go through 4 ANC steps as you preferred. Another good thing is, the headset supports Google Assistant and you just have to press one small button to enable it. In addition to the ANC button and Google Assistant button there are two buttons to control the volume (you can skip/pause/play songs or answer/reject calls by using the Google Assistant button). Another sweet thing about this headset is it is anti-sweaty, meaning it is sweat proof. You don’t have to worry about using them while workout or travel. But I must remember you that there are so many good headsets in the market that can be afford at the half of the price of this headset. Recommended if you are a Pixel user. If not a pixel user, you can only listen to the music – that means no answering/rejecting calls on other devices.

Pros,

  • Good sounds with four step adjustable noise cancellation
  • Works well with Google Pixel
  • Well combined with Google Assistant
  • Sweat Proof

Cons,

  • Expensive
  • Doesn’t perform well on other devices
  • Weak bass for the price

6. Essential Earphones HD, USB-C Digital, Noise Isolating, High Resolution in-Ear Headphones

This lightweight and simple looking and obviously little Essential Earphone comes with a carrying case for provide a greater protection to your headsets. Just like every other device I described above, this one also can skip/pause/play songs or answer/reject calls without touching your phone. In addition to that you can access the Google Assistant easily. Though the headset is small, its sound is quite amazing. The earbuds are comfortable yet loose for the ear. That is bit disappointing. There is a problem with the price. It is unfair when comparing to the quality of the product.

Pros,

  • Good sound quality
  • Well combined with Google Assistant
  • Free carrying case

Cons,

  • Weak on bass
  • Expensive

7. Razer Hammerhead USB-C: 10 mm Dynamic Drivers – Durable Aluminum Chassis and Flat-Style Cable – in-Line Controls

The final headset is a Razer one. Every human that use a computer must know about the name (specially gamers). Razer gives us five options to choose; Bluetooth – Inline Control – Standard – USB C – iOS. If you are interested in any of those, go ahead and try it. But here, I’m only talking about the USB C style one. Razer hammerhead is made of aluminum and it provides great sound quality when comparing to other devices. The cables are flat- long and strong. For great ear-fitting earbuds, these headset is equipped with 3 sizes (S-M-L) bi-flange eartips. (that bi-flange eartips helps to point the audio wave right into your ears). The earbuds have built-in magnetic tips. It helps those earbuds to stick together when not in use. Razer highly recommend this headset for gaming and music and I 100% agree with them (really good for gaming).

Pros,

  • Good sound quality with perfect bass
  • Strong
  • Well-fitting bi-flange earbuds
  • Good for gaming and when using razer phones
  • Built-in magnetic tips
  • Carrying case

Cons,

  • Earbuds are well-fitting yet uncomfortable
