Newb question: Assuming I just use 3.5 earbuds and Spotify/similar is this beneficial, and if so how and how perceptible to audio newbs?
For one, years have gone by since the last Apple portable has included a 3.5mm jack (sad face), so you'll be able to use your 3.5mm headphones. Considering you're using earbuds instead of in-ears, on-ears, or over ear headphones, the 'buds will limit the sound quality substantially (poor extension into sub bass and super treble performance). Even Apple's 3.5mm EarPods and bluetooth AirPods are hybrids between buds and in-ears, to improve their bass performance. With that said, even with a cheap $18 pair of Koss KSC75 on-ears or $30 BLON BL-03 in-ears (both great budget values!), a dongle like this would improve over other common options like the Apple dongle with less congestion during busy music passages, perhaps less glare in the highs. Spotify Premium should be enough to start hearing these benefits to clarity, though of course all improvements add up.

Previous version atom2 had an issue that it can get very hot. Doesn’t the atom3 get very hot like atom2? If not can you compare it with atom2?

@JonG9 Hello! The Atom 3 has an upgraded DAC Chip, ESS9280 AC PRO, whereas the Atom 2 had a ESS9281 AC DAC Chip. The Atom 3 also has a higher SNR, and is slightly lighter in weight. This product will not overheat and get hot.

Is there a way to use this with the USB C connection on the majority of Android phones? Thanks.

Can you use a trrs jack on this? Will there be any issue? Will it pass the mic input back to the phone?

Will this have any impact on a cars stereo system? Thinking of buying but I spend most of my time driving.
Depends on how you connect to the car stereo. If you use bluetooth, then no. But if you use an "AUX" jack (with that 3.5mm plug, the most common type you see on headphones), then yes this should help with clarity.
