I'm not worried about the headphone jack dying off anytime soon. Don't care for music / videos on my phone & don't give a damn if people can listen to my phone calls. I use a DAP for my music listening , MrSpeakers & Audeze headphones , Schiit portable headphone amp / DAC , OPPO portable headphone amp. / DAC & many others as well as desktop headphone amp / DAC. As I said no worries about DAP's losing their headphone jacks
