What should you consider when buying a headphone?

There are so many different brands, styles and prices of headphone that it can be very difficult to find a pair that is right for you.

In this post we’ll be going over some of the things you should know before you buy a pair of headphones and what you should look for when it comes to picking the pair that’s right for you.

First, let’s talk about the headphones that are on the market: 

In ear

These are the smallest and most portable of all the different kinds. They sit close to the eardrum, so they deliver good sound quality. Thanks to the small size and lightweight, these in-ears are usually comfortable to wear for hours on end. If you are looking for simplicity and a small size, these are for you! 

On ear

Like in-ear headphones, they direct sound straight down the ear canal but don’t seal out external noises. They are typically more comfortable than in-ears, so they are your right choice if comfort is your priority.

Over ear

This type of headphones are similar to On Ear but unlike those ones, the Over-ear headphones encase the entire ear.  By covering the ear, these headphones offer good external noise isolation.

If you are looking for the best quality and want to create your own world while listening to your favorite music, do not hesitate to pick Over ear with Acvitve Noise Canellation (ANC


Now you know the different types of headphones, here you have some tips to keep in mind when you buy your new headphones:

  • Noise-canceling (ANC): reduce unwanted ambient sounds using active noise control. Noise-cancelling headphones have embedded microphones and electronic chips. They record ambient noise, then create an inverse sound wave and feed it back into the headphones to effectively cancel out the sound.

  • Comfort: Comfort is a priority for many people, so the first thing to ask yourself is what you'll be using the headphones for. If you want them for sports, working, all day use, etc.

  • Wearables: When headphones will be a major part of your day-to-day life, appearances matter a tiny bit. Find a color or a design that defines you and combine it according to the time of the day.

  • Battery life: If you are buying Wireless headphones, this is an important issue since nobody likes charging the headphones very often.
