    Well, a pair of headphones is an inherently analog thing. I can't see why the analog nature of the 3.5mm jack is a problem. Simplicity is a virtue, not a weakness.

    Also,an advantage the jack has that USB doesn't is that it can somewhat act as a strain relief: suppose you have headphones with an anled connector, as  many of them do, the connector can spin in the jack because it's round. Puts way less stress on the jack and the PCB. There's no way they can make the USB-C connector as durable as that, being mashed about in your pockets all the time it'll fail eventually. Remember it's about the same size as micro-USB which has a poor reputation already. C is supposed to be more durable but time will tell. I doubt it can surpass the good old 3.5 mm plug.

    Gentlemen, it's happening: I have a week off work and I'm building a new version of my scratchbuilt case I made two years ago.
    I love it, it was a really good first attempt... but it wasn't without its faults so now, I'm going to rectify these problems. For the original one you can check my signature.
    Here's a short list of what's been changed from last time:
     
    -support for three 140mm intake fans instead of four 120mms
    -support for an additional 140mm intake fan in the bottom instead of two 120mm exhausts
    -an attempt to support up to eATX motherboards, and also a Raspberry Pi
    -a dedicated fan mount for cooling motherboard VRMs
    -two 120mm exhaust fan mounts in the rear instead of one
    -moved PSU down to the bottom of the case instead of the top
    -much better sound mufflers (hopefully; time will tell)
    -support for up to 24 SSDs (not that I will use that many obviously but this is just for giggles)
    -watercooling support for a 420mm, a 140mm, a 280mm and a 240mm radiator simultaneously (will be aircooling for the foreseeable future though)
    -support for adding an SD card reader.
     
    Trust me, this thing is going to be just as big as the last one, which comfortably outsizes a Corsair Obsidian 900D. And almost entirely made of MDF.
    I'm at the FabLab right now waiting for one of the laser cutters to become available
    Stay tuned.

    So I came back from the laser cutting place (FabLab, Leuven). I have all the parts I need. What you see here is a mockup of the bare frame of the case: at the momenty it's all held together with nothing but the fact that its parts interlock like a jigsaw puzzle. In fact, you can pick the thing up by those handles and it doesn't fall apart -it's designed not to- , but I'll still be gluing it all in place. Some parts still don't quite fit but nothing that can't be fixed with ordinary hand tools. Suffice it to say I don't have to go back there
