Ear buds are those wee little headphones that fit snugly in your ear canal. Today’s models offer powerful audio so no matter what you’re listening to, chances are every sound is crisp, rich and clear.
Sport headphones are perfect for working out. Not only do many of these have an in-ear design, but most models feature a looping mechanism that fits right over your ear. So no matter how hard you work it, your headphones – and your tunes – will stay put.
There are two types of noise-cancelling headphones: passive and active. Passive is usually what most headphones offer – a super snug fit means some noise can’t get in or out. Active noise-cancelling creates sound waves to cancel out background sounds. This noise-cancelling effect can be turned on or off, and usually requires batteries to work.
DJ-style and professional headphones are generally designed for those with more discerning aural tastes. These types of headphones usually feature an on-ear design with cushiony ear pads, so you can wear them for extended sessions. They also come equipped with more advanced acoustics and construction so every note, tone, instrument, and more can be heard.
