Are you extremely excited to finally have your hands on one of the best smartphones of 2017? The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL arrived on doorsteps yesterday for those of you who pre-ordered the new device, but sadly, they didn’t come with a set of USB-C earbuds that are compatible with your beautiful new phones. The phones did come with an included USB-C to 3.5mm audio dongle, but it’s easy to lose and not the most optimal way to enjoy your music. There are thousands of Bluetooth options to choose from, but there’s a vast majority of you who hate to charge one more accessory, let alone trying to shove the large earbuds in your small ear canals.
Amazon has a growing selection of USB-C earbuds ready for your consumption, and luckily you don’t have to sacrifice your arm or leg to get your hands on them.
Here are five of the best selling USB-C headphones under $40.
