Important tips before buying earphones

Important tips before buying earphones:-

So many elements affect the sound you hear through headphones. Headphones are nearly
as important for determining sound quality as the device they’re plugged into.
But sometimes it seems you need an audio engineer in order to make an informed purchase.
However, it’s worth putting in a little research to find the best audio quality with the right mix
of personal listening features.
If you’re in the market for a new pair, here are a few tips to take the mystery out of the
purchase. Consider these seven points and you’ll be able to find the right headphones for
you.
1. Think about when you’ll use them.
The first thing to ask yourself is what you’ll be using the headphones for. Are you looking for
a pair that can stay balled up in your messenger bag? Will you be taking them to the gym for
your workout? Will they accompany you on international plane trips? Or will you be hooking
them up to a hi-fi stereo for intense listening?
Knowing what you want headphones for will probably influence the other factors in your
decision-making process, to assess how, where and when you plan to use them.
2. Set a budget and stick to it.
If you’re a gadget geek, the headphone search can easily make a big dent in your wallet. Do
some research and get a sense for the price ranges on models that most appeal to you.
Spending a fortune on an expensive set of cans that will get sweaty during your workout
doesn’t make sense.
Tech often runs on the principle that you get what you pay for. When you just need a basic
pair for listening on the go, your price point can be much lower. If you want a product that
focuses more on audio fidelity and quality, expect to shell out accordingly. For people who
really want to break the bank, some companies let you order earphones custom-fitted to
your ears.
3. Over-ear vs. on-ear vs. in-ear.
For starters, this can be a question of comfort. Some people hate having buds settled in their
ears, while others feel that over-ear cans are too heavy over long periods of time. If you
haven’t had a chance to use both styles, ask around among your friends. They might have a
set they could loan you as a trial run.

On a more technical side, the key distinction among these styles is sound quality. Cheap
earbuds may be portable, but because of their fit and placement in the ear, you’ll miss out on
a lot of bass notes. Some in-ear models are designed to have a better fit and improved audio
experience, but few will be able to match the sound of the bigger styles.

However, it’s worth putting in a little research to find the best audio quality with the right mix
On-ear and over-ear look similar, but the on-ear style will have a smaller earpad than the
over-ear, which is designed to actually touch your head. The benefits of on-ear headphones
are a slight edge in portability and weight, while the over-ear style is better at blocking
outside noise and is usually tops in sound quality.
4. Do you need noise-cancellation?
Noise-cancellation can be a must if you want the headphones for long flights or subway
commutes. Perhaps you want to save your ears some pain by blocking outside noises,
rather than cranking up the volume. It’s a feature that you can now find in just about any
model, although it’s usually most successful in the over-ear designs.

Passive noise-canceling headphones add extra bulk to the ear pad to keep unwanted
sounds from reaching your eardrums. While this is an effective approach for small noises, it
won’t block out a jet engine’s rumble. Active noise-canceling headphones can silence some
of the lower-frequency sound waves, thanks to a physics phenomenon called “destructive
interference.”
5. What’s with wireless?
Another option worth considering is wireless. Especially for people who want flexibility and
do a lot of listening on the go, the chance to untether from wires has a large appeal. New
advances with Bluetooth have made it possible to achieve solid sound quality with this
model, but that usually comes at a cost. Also, wireless still requires the sound to be
compressed, although the best models will try to counteract those effects.
In general, if top-notch, uncompressed sound quality is your goal, this may not be the
headphone style for you.
6. Sound with style.
If you’ve decided on the most important factors and you have multiple options within your
budget, give the edge to the ones that look best. When headphones will be a major part of
your day-to-day life, appearances matter a tiny bit. Find a color or a design that speaks to
you, once you’ve met all your other criteria.
