The Pixel 4 Won’t Come With USB-C Earbuds or a 3.5mm Adaptor

Nobody was really happy when the phone companies decided that the headphone jack was to be made extinct, but the blow was softened by the fact they started throwing in 3.5mm adaptors and USB-C (or Lightning, if you're an iPhone user) earbuds into the box.
