The USB Type-C headphones work like any other headphones and you have to plug in them to a USB Type-C port such as those found on the new MacBook or such as those on the new LeEco phones. The headphone use the Continual Digital Lossless Audio solution and they will stream a lossless audio to a decoder chip inside the headphones ensuring that you are getting the bet experience you can get.
Noise reduction is also simplified with the setup LeEco is using. With normal headphones, noise reduction requires the use of batteries that provide the power to the electronics that help with the noise reduction. The new LeEco headphones do away with this and thus simplify everything.
LeEco will be releasing two headphones to start with. The over the ears ones and the in-ear plugs. The company has not announced if these headphones will be available outside its home country of China but we will know that in the future. It will be nice if we can get these headphones in international markets.
