Google Lowers Price of Pixel 2 Headphone Dongle to $9

When Google announced its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones last week, they also introduced spare USB-C to 3.5mm headphone jack dongles due to the handsets lacking audio ports. However, for whatever reason, they cost $20. This was twice as much as Apple’s Lightning to headphone adapter which costs just $9. However, likely due to outrage by consumers and the media in general, the company has lowered the price of the dongle to the same as the iPhone maker’s.

While the reason behind this price shift (first spotted by 9to5Google) remains unclear, it’s obvious that if you lose the adapter in the box of your new Pixel 2, it won’t cost very much to replace it. Still, at least try to keep an eye on the adapter in the box even though it’ll only cost a Hamilton to replace it.
