I am always amazed that reviewers (and previewers) give the 3.5mm jack such short shrift. It isn't simple about "there's a jack if you're not ready to upgrade to BT earplugs." Bluetooth simply cannot deliver the fidelity that wired monitors can and, with the rapid increase in music streaming quality, that's important. The recent V and G Series LG phones have a jack. But...attached to that jack is an ESS DAC that provides audiophile quality sound. I mean, $5,000 stereo system-level audiophile sound. That is something no other phone in the US provides and it makes the value of Tidal or Qobuz or Amazon's hi-resolution streaming worthwhile.
