Though at first many headphones appear resembling, but there are different design languages, which are suitable to different people, with different hair, or different uses. Let's have a look at this.
One of the most prominent headphone designs is the overhead band one. As the name suggests, the band sits on top of your head when you're listening. It's easy to adjust them and they are stable while wearing and don't fall off easy.
So, people who prefer music on the go: while jogging, running, exercising can look for this style. However, one of the downsides is, wearing them messes up the hairstyle, and may not be a good choice for short hairstyles.
Neckband style overcomes the problem faced by overhead band style headphones. As the band is styled with a bend to wear comfortably over your ears with a headband behind your head. So, for people who do not feel comfortable with a band touching their hair, this type will suit them
This headphone style is not very popular/trendy as compared to the overhead one and it can be uncomfortable to wear glasses with this style as it will always overlap with the frame.
The new earbuds style is getting popular with time after the AirPods and is gaining traction. Although limited options are available for this style in the budget. They are compact and minuscule and come in different designs like tiny wireless buds or joint wireless earbuds.
This style comes exclusive for wireless design and is more suited for an active lifestyle like jogging, cycling, frequent traveling, etc. One of the downsides is that their usage life cycle is small, and they are more prone to be lost because of their smaller size.
This debate of which one sounds better has stuck for quite some time between wired and wireless headphones. With time, technology has evolved to a good extent for wireless ones, but still, wired ones have an edge in some areas. Let's look over.
Wired headphones are the most common ones, and everyone has owned one pair for sure in the past. Wired ones are convenient to use without any hassles for charging or replacing the batteries. Plug it in, and you are ready to use it.
A few points in favor are great audio quality, ease of repair, and endless playback time. Wired headphones in this budget range can provide great audio quality compared to wireless ones without any limitations or latency.
One side where wired ones have been pushed back is portability. It's easy to carry and use wireless when on the go compared to a wired one. If you are an avid traveler or on a daily commute, love to listen to a podcast or some tunes, wired ones need care when handling, and also you need a headphone jack or dongle to connect.
It trims down on personal preference, but as per our recommendation, if your priorities are great audio sound and limited portability without any charging need, Wired ones are a desirable choice.
Wireless headphones are taking over slowly and steadily, and phones are losing ports simultaneously. Wireless ones work in multiple ways to connect with devices; the most common is Bluetooth. The device compresses the audio files, which are transmitted using radio waves and decoded by the headset.
They are a great choice for people with an active lifestyle, like frequent travelers or athletes or daily commuters. You don't have to worry about wires tangling or keeping your phone near due to the wire's length.
A few drawbacks are limited battery life. Especially if you go for wireless earbuds, AirPods has had small irreplaceable batteries and short product life. Also, they are hard to repair and do not stand on par with wired headset audio quality. It sometimes takes some time to pair before listening.
They also drain the battery of the device they connect with, and importantly you have to check if your device is compatible with your headphones—for example, Xbox One. If your focus is listening on the go anywhere, wireless is a decent choice. Do make sure to check for good battery life for long playback time.
There are two types of design: open and closed-back design. As the name suggests, closed-back ones have a hard casing covering the outer side of the headphones, The internals is encased completely and protected. Additionally, the music doesn't leak out and you can use them anywhere.
Open back on the other hand have an open case design with internals visible on the outer side. You can distinguish them with grilles and visible internals. The consistent flow of air helps in creating a better and realistic sound compared to closed-back which isn't able to create a similar sound effect.
If you're looking for better sound quality and major use indoors, importantly a quiet environment, open-end is a better choice. If you're more concerned with listening anywhere aspect, closed ones are better.
While many headphones claim that they’re great for gamers, you must go through the reviews section to make sure they actually work. If you're looking for comprehensive info about gaming headsets, you can check the underlined link for a more detailed analysis.
Recently, smaller companies have been giving tough competition to bigger brand names by offering similar quality products at much lower costs. Therefore, think about your needs objectively and choose the product that best suits you for both function and cost. Evaluate user reviews, product reviews and select accordingly.
Products from smaller manufacturers tend to be risky in this respect as you cannot tell when a certain item would be discontinued, and its parts would become unavailable. However, with bigger brands, you do not need to worry about such things as they have multiple repair centers and customer care operators.
Apart from all design functions, there are a few additional functions to look for when finalizing your purchase. Look for a noise-canceling feature if your usage will be more oriented towards the outdoors. Noise-canceling headphones have small microphones in them that produce waves that cancel out outdoor noises.
The noise is diminished to adequate levels for clear sound from headphones. If you have some genre preference like rock or pop music, some headphones have a musical genre specialization that can be checked with specifications about the product.
For example., if you're a rock music lover, headphones with great bass are a good choice. Similarly, for different music genres, there are specializations in terms of audio profiles and treble. Research and analyze different products before finalizing.
