USB headphones are becoming an increasingly popular technological product, but JBL has gone ahead and raised the stakes in this growing market by introducing the first ever USB headphones to make use of the Type-C format.

Dubbed the JBL Reflect Aware C, these headphones bring together extraordinarily high-resolution sound with a sport-focused design and aesthetic, with users able to enjoy high-tech noise-cancelling systems that ensure that they don't process any unwanted environmental sounds.

These headphones make use of the USB-C format which is especially popular among laptops and Android smartphones, making them perfect for phones that don't have traditional headphone ports. The headphones come with a 10 - 22 Hertz frequency response and feature a sweat-proof construction.

This is a great example of multimedia gadgetry being revamped to become better compatible with smartphone redesigns.
