Headphones have become an indispensable part of our daily lives. They differ greatly in terms of design, sound quality and price. With such a wide range available, how do you choose the right ones?

When choosing headphones, first consider how you will use them

Headphones for PC or laptops

For gaming, office work, or as a versatile PC headset, we recommend over-ear headphones. They are comfortable even during extended listening sessions, and compared with similarly expensive in-ear headphones, they offer superior sound quality. For gaming or Internet video conversations, choose a headset with a microphone.

Headphones for life on the go

When travelling on the bus, train, or plane, earbuds and in-ear headphones are the most convenient, as are headphones with a folding design. In short, go for something lightweight and compact.

Sports headphones

In-ear headphones, such as ear buds, are ideal sports headphones as they fit snugly in your ears, block out ambient noise, and are more comfortable during hot and sweaty workouts than over-ear headphones.

TV Headphones

TV headhpones can be connected by a 3.5mm jack or wirelessly. When choosing TV headphones with wires, we recommend a cable length of at least one metre longer than the distance between the TV and the viewing point.

What else should I look for when choosing headphones?

Connections

  • Wired headphones (3.5mm jack, USB) - compared with similarly expensive wireless heahphones, they offer better sounds quality but less freedom of movement.
  • Wireless headsets (Bluetooth, radio frequency) - with no wires, they provide greater freedom of movement (Bluetooth headsets have a range of approx. 10 metres from the playback device; radio frequency up to 100 metres). Wireless headphones have built-in batteries and must be recharged.

Construction

  • Closed - dampen ambient noise.
  • Open - provide high-quality sounds (less distortion) but with some ambient noise
  • Semi-closed - a compromise between open and closed headphones.

Useful functions and features

  • Volume control - located on the headphones or cable.
  • Folding design - for easy portability.
  • Rotating ear cups - comfortably listen to music in one ear (especially useful for DJs).
  • 7.1 surround sound - hear where a particular sound is coming from (especially useful for gamers).
  • APTX and AAC - codecs for Bluetooth headphones that guarantee higher quality sound.
  • NFC - technology used in connection with Bluetooth headsets, which accelerates and facilitates their connection with the playback device.

Headphones

Selecting the right headphone is not always easy. First it is important to know what you will need the headphones for. For home listening, comfortable and rugged headphones are perfect. Lighter models are suitable for listening to music on the way to school or work, or for sports activities. Wireless headphones give you absolute freedom of movement, whereas headphones with microphones allow you to communicate with others when gaming or chatting online. 

What should you pay attention to when selecting headphones? Focus on models that have the widest frequency range (the human ear can hear sounds within the range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz). Another important parameter is the level of distortion; it is expressed as a percentage and should be as low as possible. Headphone jacks are the standard for connecting headphones to the signal source; they come in 6.3 mm, 3.5 and 2.5 mm sizes.

Tip: did you know that headphones can reproduce surround sound and replace a subwoofer? So you can enjoy great movies and games without disturbing your neighbours or loved ones.
