Google cuts USB-C headphone adapter to Apple price

That's appalling. Now, it seems Google has realized its dongle error and is dropping the price down to $9, or the same as Apple's Lighting to headphone jack replacement dongle.

Google released a new USB-C to 3.5mm dongle following the reveal earlier this month of the headphone jack-less Pixel 2. But a difference is made based on the way vocal users react to generational changes in smartphone companies' most major hardware.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are the first Google-branded phones to arrive without the headphone jack.

For that, you'd think Google had created an adapter/charger like the Moshi USB accessory it also sells online. To be especially clear, here, both the iPhone 8/8 Plus and the Google Pixel 2 come with these same dongles in their boxes.

Thankfully, after no shortage of criticism, Mountain View has dropped the price to just $9 (via 9to5Google). That's what you'll find this dongle for at the Apple Store, and as of today, at the Google Store too (each with their respective versions, of course). The good news is you can buy a Type-C adapter on the Google Store for much less money than you could a few days ago.
