Bluetooth headphones would be a perfectly acceptable alternative except that laptops often have lots of connection issues.
Like mine, I dealt with multiple issues that Dell couldn't fix on my XPS13 2N1, I recently just found a workaround about the issue that my keyboard and mouse would stop responding for a few seconds every time there's a couple seconds of inactivity, all the fixes I found failed and the workaround is actually to have this BT detection software running at all times apparently pinging every few seconds to keep the damned hardware responsive. And I only found this issue after I disconnected my speakers which usually stay connected, but the speakers would stop playing after a couple minutes at random which is another issue specific to this computer that has another workaround which itself is not entirely reliable.
At least it still has the jack!!!

I'm on my 4th usb-c to jack dongle adapter, after 2 failed and 1 working so so(also different brands).
Forget that, more annoying and painful is taking one everywhere with a non-jack device, its like tail you got to attach and let it dangle just so you can enjoy lossless.
Oh wait, did they told you that wireless alternative they want you to buy and use is lossy?
shame on them trying to look cool but downgrading instead...

This would be a deal-breaker for me. Seriously, there is no excuse for this greedy behaviour. Even the smallest laptops are big enough to fit a tiny 3.5 mm port.

This is what happens if they follow Apple as trend setter. Next, they won't shipped with an adapter, while still cost the same, and defend that everyone already has their own adapter. What next? Keyboard maybe, as everyone already has their own too.

Please someone in senior management from ASUS yell and insult this person who decided to remove 3.5mm jack from laptop and then fire him from his job. 😡

a**US indeed.

These shyte kebabs dropped webcams when we have a god damn rollercoaster pandemic crippling AMD Ryzen sales and turned the ASSUS G14 from the best 2020 Ryzen laptop to just a good laptop.

ASSUS also loves to re-invent keyboards until they are impossible to read with low contrast, awfully childish fonds and above all they ignore customer input.

Maybe they will start designing laptops with power productivity in mind once China takes of their tiny Taiwanese fart of an island.

Stop this trend immediately! I will not carry an adapter together with my notebook when I'm using it on the couch or similar. This is stupid.

ASSUS is my favorite company because they ruin my experience more every time they release a new generation of laptop

Last year, we posed the question to our readers about how they would feel if laptops begun shipping without integrated 3.5 mm audio jacks similar to most smartphones nowadays. Now, it appears that at least one laptop manufacturer is slowly but surely testing this out for themselves.
