Some Queries You Need To Know Before Buying Headphones

September 22, 2017 by Mixcder

There are an increasing number of people like to listen to music in their daily life. Enjoying music would be helpful for relieving pressure. Sometimes buyers would be confused by the various kinds of headphone. Hence, get to know about some queries before buying earphones now.


1. What kind of music do you listen to?

Different genres of music require a different sound signature. In order to truly enjoy rock/metal, one would require a pair of earphones that are exceptionally fast, with bright treble and sweet sounding mids and impactful bass while someone with a preference in let's say Hip-Hop would go for a set of cans that would emphasize the bass, because that's where the music is for them.


2. Wireless or Wired?

The next thing you might consider when thinking about how to buy headphones is whether you want a wireless or wired pair. The wireless variety does offer an obvious advantage: no wires to wrap up or snag on anything. But that convenience can sometimes come at a cost. Like noise-canceling headphones, wireless headphones require their own battery power, which means charging and swapping batteries on a regular basis. Additionally, wireless headphones often use Bluetooth for easy pairing with devices, which is convenient, but can also mean lower sound quality and possible interference from other devices. However if you’re especially active with your headphones, wireless may be the clear way to go! Ultimately the choice is up to you, and should be informed based on how you plan on using your headphones.

 

3. Noise cancellation

Before buying headphones, don’t forget to think about noise cancellation. Earbuds tend to isolate sound well because of the tight fit in the ear, while the noise isolation of over-ear headphones will vary depending on the style.

4. On ear, over ear, or in ear

On-Ear vs. Over-Ear vs. Ear buds: This will likely be the first decision you weigh when picking your perfect pair of headphones.

  On-Ear headphones feature pads that go over the ears, but don’t cover them entirely. They’re typically more portable than bulky over-ear headphones and cancel some (but not all) noise. Because of their open design, on-ear headphones are not the best choices for very noisy (or very quiet) environments.

  Over-Ear headphones are a bit bulkier but tend to have better sound quality. Some behind-the-neck headphones are still good for moving around, but in general, over-ear headphones are larger and more troublesome to store while on-the-go.

  In-Ear headphones, or earbuds, are generally less expensive, more portable, and take up little space. They’re very convenient for active lifestyles, and can still offer superior sound quality on the higher end.
