When looking to buy headphones it is a good idea to think carefully about the purposes of them for you specifically, for instance do you use them to listen to music and audio books while you are exercising or relaxing, are they used for gaming or are they used so that you can listen to something without disturbing other family members who may be in the room at the same time? The answers to these questions will on the whole determine which type of headphones will be best for you.
There are two main types of headphone in-ear ones and over-ear ones with each having advantages and disadvantages. In ear headphones or earbuds as they are commonly known are ideal if you want headphones that are not obviously visible. They are also lightweight which makes them a good option when exercising. They are connected to your smartphone by Bluetooth and can also be used to answer calls. A disadvantage with in-ear models is that they may become uncomfortable to wear if they are used for long periods.
Over the ear headphones are usually more comfortable to wear if you are likely to be wearing them for most of the day. They can be wired or wireless with a charging docking pod connected to an electrical outlet. Although they do not look as trendy as in-ear devices they are a better option for those who prefer listening to music regularly as they give a richer sound.
