I only used headphones while traveling long-distance. I didn’t like dealing with a wire hanging out of my pocket.
Then I got a pair of Beats X bluetooth headphones over a year ago and have used them ever since. They work great, sound OK, get 8 hours of use from a charge, and most importantly when I’m not listening to anything they work as a fugly necklace, nothing to get tangled or lost. They have that W1 chip also.
Lots of people have large investments in high-end cans and many still use wired headphones to this day, I see them walking down the street. Those people have a right to be pissed off, removing features is never a good thing. But for me, personally, I don’t care.
When traveling I use a pair of wired noise-canceling bose headphones. (They are AMAZING for airplane noise.) But my ipad and laptop still have headphone jacks, so that’s fine. I don’t watch movies on my phone, even though it’s a kinda ridiculous 6.5" monstrosity now. The iPad is 10" and the laptop is 15", much better for movies.
