State Of The Art Headphones And Earbuds

    Headphones And Earbuds

    Technology has gone leaps and bounds to the sound quality that can be offered by earphones these days. In just small earbuds you can replicate the sound quality of larger, ‘can’ style headphones (those preferred by musicians). However, to cut out interference, many people still opt to purchase a pair of larger headphones, for maximum listening pleasure. Everyone likes to listen to their favourite music without disturbing others, however, one popular use of earphones for personal listening is when exercising.


    There are many different varieties and styles of in-ear headphones that people can choose from, including Bluetooth and wireless models, and specific models for sports with action grip designs. Most people who like to listen to music whilst they are exercising prefer to use Bluetooth wireless models, as it gives them the freedom from tangled wires getting in the way, but also offers other benefits. For example, the Under the Armour Sport Wireless Heart Rate model offered by JBL provides heart-rate monitoring, that you can connect with an app on your device when on the move.


    Larger headphones come in two varieties: On-Ear and Over-Ear. The latter tend to offer less interference, such as the JBL Everest Elite 700 around-ear headphones, that offer NXTGen Active Noise Cancelling Headphones. JBL Headphones are certainly leaders in this field, and also offer the smaller, on-ear model of the Everest Elite 300. You can also purchase both the Everest 700 and 300 models without the noise-cancelling technology, for a lesser price.

    Wireless Solutions

    Using Bluetooth technology, wireless headphones really come into their own, whether choosing the larger on- or over- style, or smaller earbuds. If you are going to use your headphones for sport or exercise, then you’re probably going to opt for an earbud model. Offered by JBL, the Reflect Mini BT are some of the lightest headphones on the market, but if you don’t mind the extra weight you can use the Reflect Response set, which include a wireless touch control that’s really handy. Models like the E45BT or E55BT are trustworthy options for JBL as either on-ear or over-ear headphones, respectively.

    If you are a fan of listening to your favourite music, podcast, or radio in your own personal space, it’ll come as no surprise that you’ll want to purchase a decent set of headphones. Depending on the situation, you’ll have to toss-up between larger, ‘can’ style headphones that are either on-ear or over-ear designs, or if you prefer something smaller but which doesn’t compromise on sound quality, then you can go for the earbud variety. People that want headphones for when playing sport almost always go for a decent set of earbuds, as many of the newer models contain added bonuses that can connect with your device for dual purpose. People on the move almost always opt for wireless headphones, powered by Bluetooth technology,
