What to consider before buying headphones
Here we explain what you should take into account when choosing the best pair of headphones according to your needs and tastes.
In addition to the audio quality, you will have to take into account another series of characteristics when choosing the most suitable headphones:
1. Remote control and microphones
If you ever try a headset with a remote control and microphone, you will no longer want to go back to using a model that does not have this feature.
Thanks to the remote control you cánido answer calls, select a specific song or increase the volume without having to take the phone out of your pocket. The microphone will allow you to have a conversation (on a call) without having to pick up the phone either.
We believe that these two tools are very necessary and perro greatly improve the quality of use of a headset.
2. Circumaural headphones
The headphones are circumaural when they fully tuck your ears, providing you with total isolation from noise and very good quality bass.
Plus, because the headphones are completely sealed around your ears, there won’t be a hint of sound leakage.
The downside is always the size, since these types of helmets are usually very large and heavy, we therefore recommend that you use them for at least one day before buying them (if a friend lends them to you), before taking the decision to buy them.
3. Supraaural headphones
Although these types of headphones will also have a headband that will go side to side of your head, they are different from circumaurals.
Over-ear headphones sit on your ears providing enough volume and preventing sound leakage, they differ from the previous ones because they do not completely wrap the entire ear.
The benefit is their size and weight since they are usually smaller than circumaural headphones, although they do not achieve that studio quality.
4. In-ear headphones
These are normally the most common type of headphones. The reason is clear: they are very small and weigh very little, which makes them extremely easy to transport since they fit in any bag, backpack or even pocket.
Most of the in-ear headphones you’ll see in this selection have rubber grommets or tips on the end that slide slightly into the ear canal.
This produces excellent audio quality, quality bass, and optimal noise isolation if you find the right size in-ear headphones.
5. Isolation noise
The ability to isolate ourselves from the noise around us to be able to fully immerse ourselves in the audio we want to hear is another of the key characteristics that we must take into account before buying headphones.
