Are you one of those people who like to listen to music while traveling to work on public transport? Or do you like to put on the headphones to cancel out noises when you are working? Or do you like to put on headsets when you are watching late-night television so you don't disturb people who are sleeping? However you choose to use your headphones, we can safely agree that many people usually spend a lot of time listening to their favourite music on their earphones whether they are at home or on-the-move. If you spend a lot of time with your headsets on, and are in need of a new pair, then here’s a few pointers on how to pick the perfect pair for yourself.
Decide what’s your type
Online shopping sites are full of earpieces from various brands in a variety of styles, colors and functions at amazing prices. With so many options at hand, you might feel a bit lightheaded, when it comes to picking the perfect pair. The first thing that you should consider is form factor. Whether you want in-ear or ear bud headphones or full size and ear pad ones will also depend on where you are using them and what you are listening to. Here is a list of a few types you can easily buy online.
Earbud or In-ear Headphones
These kinds of headphones have tiny earpieces that go inside your ears and fit snugly in your ear canal. They usually come with foam or rubber tips that stay securely inside your ear while you are moving about or exercising. These earpieces are portable and consume less space inside your bag. Moreover, they are more comfortable to use if you wear glasses or helmets.
Ear Pad Headsets
These types of headsets usually feature small pads that go over your ears, but don't cover them completely. They are also very comfortable and don’t hurt the ears. Moreover, they are great for on-the-go use.
Full Size Earphones
Also known as around-the-ear or over-the-ear headphones, full size headsets feature cushioned ear pads that cover the ears and are very comfortable. These kinds of earphones are ideal for sound clarity and good bass response. Moreover, they are quite efficient in cancelling outside noise.
Wireless headsets, as the name suggests, don't have wires. They let you move around cable-free. These kinds of headsets connect to the music player with the help of Bluetooth. They not only let you listen to music wirelessly, but also help you play, stop, pause or skip music. As they don’t have wires, wireless headsets are great to use while exercising.
