    There aren't many. Why? :thinking:

    I need an antenna. Mostly AM, mostly. Stereo is not essential.

    I think the "why" is probably that if you want wired a 3.5mm jack and an adapter works better for most people than dedicated USB-C headphones. That way the same headphones can be used in other devices with a headphone jack (other phones, portable music players, my laptop), and you can choose the headphone and adapter that suits you best, rather than being restricted to the available USB-C headphones. If you already have wired headphones an adapter is cheaper than a new set, especially if you have good headphones (though if you are fussy about the sound you can buy a higher quality adapter to match), and most adapters can just be left permanently on the headphones, in which case there's little convenience lost over a dedicated USB-C headphone.

    I've got 2 pairs of headphones I use (a smaller set for commuting and a larger one for longer use), and wasn't going to replace them just because of a dick move by phone makers (I've never believed that it was a coincidence that Apple bought a popular headphone brand shortly before they removed the headphone jack from their phones). I've got regular £10 adapters I keep with each, plus a fancier one I keep with the better pair. That works for me, though frankly just having a headphone jack would work better.

    How well that works as an FM antenna I don't know, as my phone doesn't have that option.

    Quite frankly I've never given any thought to USB-C headphones. Anything I use to listen to music or other media with headphones, either has a headphone jack or I use Bluetooth.

    I've found some that look interesting. I should get them sometime tomorrow. I'll let everybody here know what I think. They're on the ear headphones. That's a departure for me.

    Got them. You have to plug in left and right cups then plug in the headphones.
    These are pillow phones. They rest your ear.

    Nice crisp sound.
    They remind me of 70s Science Lab headphones but the sound so much better.
    Better Bass, Treble and Mid-range.
