Please keep the headphone jack (No USB-C audio please)

Hope Lenovo/ThinkPad is listening...

Please keep the headphone jack; it's working perfectly.
ie: No USB-C audio please!

Smartphones are (trying) to ditch the headphone jack, and trying to replace it with USB-C "audio jack".

It's a big mess; many different manufacturers' USB-C "audio jack" are incompatible with each other!
How big a mess? See below:
