  • - Hey, guys, this is Austin.

  • Ken, why have you gathered us here today?

  • - Because the headphone jack is dead.

  • - Is it though?

  • I just saw the Galaxy S10 it's got a headphone jack.

  • - Shhhhh.

  • So the premise of this video is that you're going

  • to fix the headphone jack, gonna bring it back to life?

  • - I'm gonna try.

  • The first solution is the one that comes in the box,

  • which are these.

  • - This is not a headphone jack.

  • - Yeah.

  • - This is not a headphone jack at all.

  • They're fine, I mean they're not like the worst things

  • in the world, but now that they like kind of...

  • just they're fine.

  • - They're okay.

  • I mean they come in the box so

  • how much can you really expect?

  • - So what I do when I need a headphone jack is

  • that I just pull out one of my many adapters,

  • including USB-C, headphone jack.

  • - To Lightning.

  • - To Lightning, yeah.

  • - The only problem with this and the Lightning headphones

  • down here is that you cannot charge and listen to your music

  • at the same time. - Ah very.

  • Well you can wirelessly charge.

  • You don't have a Galaxy S10E in your pocket.

  • Now available at Samsung.

  • Oh I'm sorry, I'll stop, I'll stop.

  • - You wanna tell me something about our backdoor deals?

  • - What is our solution, Mr. Bolido?

  • - Okay, so Belkin came out with this thing. So it's-

  • - What? Oh.

  • - Yeah. (laughs)

  • - This is two Lightning ports to a single Lightning port.

  • Like, can I plug in two headphones at the same time?

  • - I don't believe you can, because I believe one gets

  • turned on for power, the other one gets turned on for audio.

  • So here's a power bank. Very simple, easy.

  • We have a Lightning to USB-C because

  • that's what I have around.

  • Got some Aure Samo right there.

  • - Look at this. Cut all this out.

  • I hear anime stuff, okay cool.

  • - Yeah, charging, listening to music.

  • - Yeah, revolution.

  • You can charge and listen to music at the same time.

  • As if you can buy a Galaxy S10 and do the same thing.

  • - How much are they paying you?

  • - Not enough to deal with this.

  • (laughs)

  • I get the idea that you want to charge your phone

  • and listen to music at the same time.

  • The way I want to do that is not with another pair

  • of Lightning headphones.

  • Because there are a few decent pairs of Lightning

  • headphones, but generally speaking at this point,

  • it seems like the Lightning jack might even

  • be on its way out.

  • I would not want to invest in anything Lightning.

  • Not specifically, besides maybe to replace a cable

  • on some old headphones or something, but besides that.

  • I'm not going to pay this money to listen to my stupid

  • AirPods, earpods, whatever these things are.

  • What's our better solution?

  • - I don't exactly have a better solution.

  • - You're giving up already?

  • What kind of video is this? You need to be more excited.

  • You're like I have the solution. Be confident.

  • - The urBeats Lightning-

  • - Oh, with Lightning, I've seen these.

  • The idea is that these are lower end Beats, right?

  • These are like what 60 bucks or something?

  • - Yeah, like 50, 60 bucks, something like that.

  • They also have the regular one as well.

  • I highly doubt we'll notice that much of a difference,

  • honestly, between the Lightning version and

  • the 3.5 mil version, but just for the sake of science.

  • Why not?

  • - I like that these are yellow.

  • These are like iPhone XR colors.

  • - Instead of this, you have this.

  • - These Beats are magnetic. That's a nice touch.

  • Do these actually sound any good?

  • - You tell me. I literally just opened them now.

  • - I'm gonna listen to your music so you can listen-

  • - I'll listen to my music and then we'll just form

  • our own opinion with our music.

  • - These aren't bad.

  • These sound okay.

  • - Yeah, I'm not crazy thrilled about them.

  • - 60 bucks.

  • - 60 bucks.

  • - They're fine. I've listened to worse for the price.

  • - For what you'll find at Best Buy, if you just wanted

  • to grab a pair of $60 headphones.

  • I feel like most people will be happy with these.

  • - The thing is the Beats sound I hate a lot less

  • the cheaper the price.

  • When you're talking like 3, 400 bucks, I'm like eh.

  • - If you're paying $100 for this, I would be upset.

  • - Even so, but we're talking 50, 60 bucks,

  • there's definitely someone who's gonna

  • really like this sound.

  • Someone who really wants things very punchy,

  • very kind of bass heavy, I don't hate it.

  • - So we actually unboxed these on Mystery Tech.

  • These are the Zero Audio Carbor Tenor headphones.

  • - Those are dope. The isolation of those is insane.

  • - We were on flights yesterday and they legit

  • cut out a lot of the ambient noise.

  • These are a slight bit tinier.

  • - That's a fair bit smaller.

  • - Yeah and most importantly, I feel like this just sounds

  • way better than this.

  • - Even with the headphone jack,

  • even with the headphone jack.

  • These come with the phones.

  • I don't think they do anymore, but they're still

  • reasonably cheap so it's not crazy to have

  • at least a couple of these adapters.

  • - I'll argue that for $50, I don't think it's a bad idea

  • to just carry this thing around and just keep it

  • on your favorite pair of headphones.

  • - This is getting a little goofy.

  • What's your solution, what do you?

  • - This is what I roll with.

  • I feel like it's the end-all, for me, as an iPhone user

  • that wants great audio but with a setup that might be

  • more than what other people would take, but I'm fine taking.

  • - Okay, you've really hyped this up.

  • I need to see your setup now.

  • - Something that I actually have wanted to

  • play with for a while.

  • I ended up getting one of these.

  • This is the DragonFly Red DAC from AudioQuest.

  • It's meant to drive high impedance headphones,

  • as well be a better DAC than this thing.

  • - Okay, so this is a USB-A.

  • How do you get this to the iPhone?

  • - I got a dongle.

  • - Oh. Damnit.

  • - There are two pieces to this. One-

  • - It's really floppy.

  • - So we have Austin's pair of headphones.

  • - Final E4000s.

  • I'll be real with you.

  • I don't know if I totally notice a massive difference.

  • I'd have to listen to them back to back,

  • versus the standard adapter.

  • It sounds good. It definitely sounds solid.

  • - The reality is is that this doesn't have any

  • additional characteristics to it.

  • It's gonna sound pretty similar to this.

  • - It's just better. A little more detailed.

  • - Ever so slightly better, but the idea with using something

  • like this is that you can actually listen to high res stuff.

  • - Ah, you're not using Spotify with that, I see.

  • - Spotify is pretty much the bottleneck.

  • It doesn't output high res.

  • If you use stuff like Tidal, for example,

  • then you might notice an ever so slight difference.

  • Oh, yeah, yeah.

  • - Let's not play that anymore.

  • So what's the cost of the DragonFly

  • plus the camera connection kit?

  • - 200 bucks at Best Buy.

  • - The camera connection kit is like 20?

  • - No, so this thing is like 45 bucks.

  • - What?

  • - Yeah, this is, I believe 20 to 30.

  • (grunts)

  • This thing is, what, like 15 bucks or something like that?

  • - Probably.

  • - USB-C to Lightning.

  • - You can fix the headphone jack on the iPhone

  • if you don't mind something which is, I would say,

  • not particularly compact or portable and also if you

  • don't mind spending in excess of $200.

  • (train horn in distance)

  • That was a really long train horn.

  • That's like an impressive one.

  • This is something you do?

  • - Not when I'm running around, no, but...

  • - This is a thing that Mr. Bolido has done in his life.

  • This.

  • - It's also not done yet. Let me just...

  • - Of course, there you go. So...

  • - No, we're not there yet.

  • And then I gotta charge it.

  • - Okay, I've got power to the phone. I've got...

  • - Remember, this thing pulls power too

  • so you need to keep your phone charged so that...

  • - Wait, does this actually impact your battery life?

  • - It pulls something-

  • (laughs)

  • - Why is there a bunch of other accessories down here?

  • What else is down here?

  • - These are actually just the boxes of what we just-

  • - But wait, what's this then?

  • - Oh.

  • - This is a headphone jack.

  • You're hiding a whole other headphone jack here.

  • What's that for?

  • - I forgot about this.

  • - You can't even do a video, man.

  • You don't even know.

  • - I forgot about this.

  • This might be a nice middle ground for people.

  • It is a Lightning to Lightning for charging and a 3.5.

  • - And headphone jack. Now that makes more sense, right?

  • It's still a little on the goofy side,

  • but you can easily charge your phone and

  • you can listen to audio at the same time.

  • Basically, we're gonna compare my setup with a single dongle

  • and that's it, to your thing.

  • - Yes. I think for scientific sake, since I already know

  • what this sounds like, you should listen

  • to both back to back.

  • By the way, he's listening to Spotify,

  • which most people would be listening to anyway.

  • For as far as a scientific comparison is concerned,

  • this is probably for the masses.

  • - This sounds kinda cheap.

  • - Oh.

  • - It's not that bad, not that bad, not that bad.

  • Let's be calm here.

  • - Is Ken right?

  • - Damnit, Ken.

  • Why is your stupid solution better?

  • Why is this the best solution?

  • Why am I...?

  • That's better, dude.

  • It's not even close.

  • This is fine.

  • This honestly doesn't maybe even necessarily sound

  • as good as this.

  • It's okay.

  • Honestly, for all I know, this could be the exact same thing

  • and it's just like a placebo.

  • This sounds decent, but the DragonFly,

  • it's got so much more punch.

  • It's so much clearer. I'm...

  • - Who would want this garbage?

  • Just get dongle city.

  • Dongle city.

  • Or you know, at the end of the day...

  • - LG V40, Galaxy S10.

  • - Or just get AirPods.

  • - This is not even remotely the same category.

  • You're talking about AirPods?

  • I like AirPods, but you're not getting this kind of quality

  • out of AirPods.

  • - Yeah, but Bluetooth is the future.

  • - No, clearly this is the future.

  • (laughs)
