Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

Most new smartphones don't have headphone jacks

I would like to use my wired headphones but that's not directly possible in the absence of the standard 3.5mm jack as is the case with my Google Pixel 7a.

Question: what's you knowledge and/or experience using Bluetooth 'phone on airplanes? Assuming it's even technically allow, I wonder whether the signal clutter caused by other users is a problem? Anyway I need to take along wired headphones to listen to airplane movie sound tracks.

I found what I hope will be a great device to permit me to use wired headphones with my smartphone via its USB Type C jack: the TANCHJIM 'Space' DAC+amp dongle, (link below). It has had excellent reviews from several 'subjective' headphone reviews plus an superb 'objective' review at ASR.

BTW, my new Pixel 7a also lacks a MicroSD slot and radio reception. I find this annoying, especially lack of SD, but I wanted a small 'phone which the 7a is relatively speaking.
