Is it normal for the magnetic USB-C end to fit so tight? I'm unable to remove it from my Pixel 2 XL without using needlenose pliers...
Will the snug fit work its way out, or is this going to damage the female end of the USB-C port on my phone?
Either way the tight fit makes this horribly inconvenient to use. Especially since I use the USB-C to aux adapter daily for my headphones.

I'm having a similar problem. I've filed a support request. Cable is useless for me. Was going to use it on a MacBook Pro but it won't even charge the computer since it's too tight to complete the connection.

My experience with similar cables is that if the magnet is strong enough to prevent the cable from accidentally disconnecting it's strong enough to pull out the connector unless it's really tight. The genius of the original Apple mag-safe connection was that it was an integral part of the computer and couldn't be disconnected. Since a USB-C magnetic adapter is inherently disconnect-able it'll never be as good.

Not as good implies that it works (at least some of the time). In this case it didn't work at all. Massdrop was awesome though and gave me a refund.
