One of the drawbacks when you make a phone that's razor thin (the Moto Z is only 5.19 mm thick) is that you have a harder time finding room for things like a big battery — or a 3.5mm headphone jack.
We're at the table with the Moto Z in our hands, and the talk we're all hearing on the internet is true — the Moto Z has no 3.5mm headphone jack. That doesn't mean you can't use headphones with it, only that you can't plug in a pair the "regular" way.
The Z does have a USB Type-C port, which does an excellent job of outputting digital audio. Our own Michael Fisher has confirmed that the Moto Z comes with a USB-C headphone adapter, which should convert the audio into analog so you can plug in the headphones you already have to listen to music or watch a movie or even talk on (or to) your phone.
There is also the wireless option, and Bluetooth headsets and stereo headphones should work just fine. We'll also be seeing more and more USB-C headphones as the port becomes more popular, and we expect the availability to go up while the pricing goes down on those.
