The 3.5mm Headphone Connector Got Removed From Surface 9 Pro Notebooks By Microsoft

The 3.5mm headphone connection was removed from Microsoft’s Surface Pro 9 notebook, making the company the latest in a growing list of tech businesses to take this step. 

According to The Verge, the change has been confirmed on the technical specification page of the device, which does not list a headphone jack among the device connections. The Surface Pro 8 had the headphone jack, however this time the change has been affirmed on the technical specification page of the device. 

It would appear that this is the direct result of Microsoft choosing to house the Intel & Arm variants of the Surface Pro 9 within the same chassis. 

According to the firm, the design philosophy of the Surface Pro X, which did not have a 3.5mm connection, is now followed by the hardware manufactured by Intel. 

The Surface Pro 9, which was just released on October 12 by Microsoft, comes equipped with a high-definition camera, Omnisonic speakers, directional microphones, and a proprietary G6 chip that takes inking to the next level by providing haptic impulses. 

When combined with the new Ink Focus feature in “Microsoft OneNote” or the new GoodNotes app that will be available for Windows 11 in early 2023, writing with digital ink on the screen will feel very similar to writing with a pen and paper, according to Panos Panay, Chief Product Officer at Microsoft. 

There are two different CPU options available for the Surface Pro 9 with a 13-inch PixelSense display: a 12th Generation Intel Core processor based on the Intel Evo architecture with Thunderbolt 4, or a Microsoft SQ3 powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon with 5G connection.
