What Are The Different Types Of Headphones?

If you are looking for headphones then you will probably have noticed that there are very big differences in the types, styles and ultimately the price. The most commonly referenced types are In-Ear, On-Ear and Over-The-Ear, and all three are significantly different and suitable for different uses. In the following paragraphs you will find information that will help you decide which type is best for your needs.

These are probably some of the most popular and common headphones you will encounter. Practically all Smartphones and mobile music players will come with these small ear buds that fit into your earlobe, very much like a hearing aid. The reason they are so popular is because they are light weight and easy to store, making them ideal for all sorts of activities inside and outside the home. One of the most iconic types of in-ear headphones is the white ones you see so many people with for their iPhones and iPods.

These are the more traditional type of headphone, which rest on the ear and do not cover the whole earlobe. In general it is possible to deliver a better sound quality with this type than with in-ear ones, and they also tend to allow more ambient noise to be received. They are especially convenient for situations where you want to have high quality audio, but you also want to be aware of your surroundings, for example in sport or an office environment. If, however, you require as much noise reduction as possible, then the next option is probably more suitable.

These types of headphones have become very popular and even fashionable. You will see many young people walking around with these very large headphones that cover the entire ear, even though their original intent and use was not for hooking up to Smartphones or iPods. Beyond it being fashionable, these headphones do provide one of the best audio experiences possible.

One of the main advantages of these headphones is that they are exceptionally good at cancelling out noise that may be around you. You can understand why this would be important to a musician or a producer in a recording studio, but they can also give an average music lover a great experience. If you enjoy listening to music and you are unable to always play it over speakers, then over-the-ear-headphones are your best option. Bear in mind though that the better the noise reduction the higher the price will be.

Between the three main types of headphones you have a great deal of choice and you should figure out where you are most likely going to use them. If your budget allows you can always opt for more than one type and have one set of headphones for listening to music at home while another set is used for your commute to work. The great thing is that you have a lot of flexibility to really get to enjoy your audio in all types of situations.
