While taking a walk down the road, what is the one thing you see that most people have in common nowadays? They have their headphones on. Headphones have become an essential part of any person’s belongings. Whether it is for office, gym, watching a movie, or passing time while commuting, the right set of headphone can make all the difference. A good pair of headphones can truly enhance your experience. Headphones give you that perfect sense of privacy to really listen to what you want without any outside interference.

Over the years, the development in technology has given us some very advanced options to choose from when it comes to headphones. Any person nowadays can find the perfect match if they know how to look for it. There are so many different types of headphones, for example, noise canceling headphones, wired or wireless, open or closed etc. Most of the well-known technology companies have come out with their brands of headphones. But one can also get a perfectly good set without paying an arm and leg for it. You just need to know where and what to look for. In order to do so, the buyer needs to really research the various specifications that are available in headphones. Some of the major specifications to look out for are:

  • Price
  • Frequency Range
  • Driver Size
  • Sensitivity  

The price is a major deciding factor for buyers as they can choose whatever is within their budget. The price range also depicts the quality of the product. The higher-end headphones are more of a professional product, used by buyers who work in music, mixing, sound recording, etc. Similarly, the driver size denotes the ability to reproduce base frequencies. These specs are quiet technical and should only be considered if one belongs to the music industry. 

Types of Headphones:

Here is a list of headphones that you can choose from. Each has its own plus points and advantages: 

  • In-Ear: This is one of the latest and most used design of headphones. These are more portable and easy to carry around as they are very light weight. They fit inside the ears and are not easily dislodged, therefore, making them the best choice for gym use. 
  • Ear Buds: These do not fit inside your ear canal, but sit snugly right outside. They are like tiny speakers right inside your ear. They are slightly larger than the in- ear headphones and may fit some people better than the others.
  • Noise Cancelling: These are a high quality, latest technology product that literally create a silent vacuum around the user while they listen to their sounds. Bose QuietComfort and Sony WH1000-MX3 are the absolute finalists in listening environment control in any situations. 
  • Bluetooth: These are convenient sets that can be used away from your devices like laptops or computers. You can work out wearing these or have conference calls etc. at ease.
  • On-Ear: This is a better model, if you are a professional musician or gamer, where you need to hear every decibel of sound, and make sure there is no outside interference. The band of these headphones is shorter and they fit on top of each ear without covering them entirely. Examples span from Grado’s SR series to Sennheiser HD 25, which handle DJing very well. 
  • Open-Back: The open-back headphones are not closed from the back and give a more open sound like listening to music on speakers. They are more comfortable and airy than the closed-back headphones. 
  • Closed-Back: These types of headphones are mostly used by musicians as they cancel out any unwanted sound or noise and it doesn’t let any noise escape either. They are bulkier in size and they may be over-the- ear or smaller on-the-ear type. 

The aspects that are important to choose every day headphones are as follows: 

1. Usage: The buyer needs to analyse what exactly he needs the headphones for. Depending on the need, the search can be narrowed down. The different types of headphones are suitable for the different types of uses. If the buyer majorly wants the headphones while exercising in the gym or outdoor use, like going for a jog or walk, then one would have to choose headphones that don’t easily slip off or maybe are wireless.

2. Comfort: Usually, headphones are in use for a longer period of time. The ear is a sensitive organ and can be damaged easily. The buyer needs to make sure the headphones he is investing in are comfortable and the perfect fit, otherwise it could cause soreness or even pain. If the frequency range is not right for the user, it can cause hearing issues eventually. This is why, comfort needs to be taken into account while making a purchase.

3. Life: Before buying a set of headphones, you need to make sure the product is durable and long lasting. The price will be dependent on the durability and quality of the product. We all know just how annoying it is when an accessory conks off in the middle of its use, or dies way before it should. Headphones are a product that will not always be handled with care. They will be bouncing around in pockets or gym bags or even cars, their wires will be getting tangled and untangled. The product should be durable enough to with stand day to day use.

4. Convenience: Before you know it, your headphones become a part of your daily routine. Therefore, you need to have a set that it compact and portable, so that it can easily accompany you wherever you go. Foldable designs are easier to transport as compared to the sealed- cup headphones. The lighter the headphones, the better for the ear, and also easier to carry around.

Headphones are not one size fits all. On the contrary, they are a very personalized accessory, which needs to be bought after proper research. This is the only way to get the perfect fit that gives you exactly what you want. Our creative staff were using Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO during the production of Broken Pieces.
