My Thoughts on Headphones

~ Posted on Friday, July 25, 2014 at 6:00 PM ~

I've seen my husband using quite a number of headphones over the past few years. Even so, they don't last for a long time and he is still looking for a good reliable one to use in his personal office room. In my personal opinion, the headphones that are out on the market should be designed to withstand the test of time as they are one of the most often use gadget at home nowadays.

Based on my research over the Internet, some of the tips for buying these gadgets include:

* What will you be using them for? Will it be for indoor use or you will be wearing them in outdoor as well?

* Do some research online as well as check out forums and asking around to get a sense for the price ranges on models that most appeal to your needs.

* Style as in do you like over-ear type (also called circumaural which cups over your ears, sealing in sound and muffling ambient noise) or on-ear type (also called supra-aural which are lighter and do not press on the sides of your head) or in-ear type? Some people may not be comfortable having the earbuds settled in their ears. If possible try out the different types to get a better feel.

* Noise cancellation feature should be considered especially if you plan to use for long commutes.

* Wireless feature is another feature to be considered for people who want flexibility and do a lot of listening on-the-go. It is now increasingly common and typically uses Radio Frequency, infrared or Bluetooth wireless technologies.

* The product brand and style is something you should look into as well if you are concerned with the reputation of the products you use.
