How To Choose New Headphones
When buying new headphones, it’s important that you’re happy with your purchase and the only way that’s possible is if you know what you’re looking for.
The biggest question to ask yourself is — do you want headphones or earphones? There are fantastic options out there for both types, but it’s important to consider whether you want something that you wear as cups over your ears or if you prefer to place earbuds in your ears. Both offer pros and cons. Headphones are a more snug and secure fit, but they might feel a bit heavy or awkward when working out, which is where earphones feel comfier and less noticeable. However, earphones can be more likely to fall out if you don’t find the right fit for you.
Whichever you choose, it’s also important to consider how wired you want them to be. Are you fine with headphones that attach to your smartphone via a cable? Or would you prefer a wireless solution that connects via Bluetooth? Depending on your phone, Bluetooth might be your only option. Truly wireless earphones don’t even have wires connecting the two sides of the earphones together, though that does mean you can enjoy the freedom of never getting tangled up in cables.
It’s also a wise idea to consider active noise cancellation. This feature helps block out surrounding noise which is great if you want to listen to music while working or simply want to zone out from what’s going on around you.
Don’t forget battery life either, especially if you want a pair of headphones that last you all day without needing to be recharged. If you know you’ll be near a power source regularly though, this will be less of an issue.
Take the time to figure out what’s important to you, then make sure you dive into a great deal this Labor Day 2020.
