Earphones & Earbuds

Earphones & Earbuds

Earphones, a.k.a. in-ear headphones, earpods or earbuds, are the most basic type of headphones. Originally humble in sound producing ability, earphones with silicone or memory foam ear tips now offer passive isolation, which basically means their snug fit melds to the shape of your ear and seals in the sound. This is something over-ear and on-ear headphones are unable to offer because of their shape and design. Of course, the main appeal of earphones is portability. If you’re looking to travel light and avoid stares on public transport due to sound leakage, earphones are the way to go.

True Wireless Earbuds

Thanks to the launch of AirPods, wireless earphones have launched into the mainstream market. ‘True Wireless’ is a term you’ll see thrown around a lot when it comes to wireless earphones, what it means is that the device is completely cordless and don’t even support the connection of AUX backups. Most people have embraced the convenience of never having to untangle earphone cables ever again, but cord-free world also means we’re no longer guaranteed endless listening like the old days. The truth is that features like Active Noise Cancellation, Ambient and Transparent listening modes require battery power to function and offer you a more immersive listening experience. What’s more is that most wireless earphones come equipped with low power modes and charging cases, so you can still enjoy longer jam sessions on the go.

Over Ear Headphones

Over-ear headphones are more adept at blocking outside noise than on-ear headphones, as they cover your entire ear and leave little room for ambient noise to seep through. Audio engineers over the years have perfected the noise cancellation abilities of over ear headphones—allowing for incredibly immersive sound experiences. Much like earphones, headphones have gone through a wireless evolution, however the great thing about wireless headphones is they can oftentimes support backup auxiliary cable listening like old times.

Features and Benefits

Bluetooth/Wireless

Bluetooth or wireless headphones allow you to forego the need for cables to enjoy your audio. Nowadays, majority of headphones use Bluetooth to connect wirelessly and can connect at ranges of up to 10 metres, making them perfect for listening to music on Bluetooth speakers.

Built-In Microphone

If you intend to use your headphones with your smartphone, a built-in mic is a great feature. Instead of having to disconnect your headphones and answer a call, a built-in mic will allow you to answer calls through your headset at the touch of a button.

Remote Control

If your headphones have a built-in mic, they usually come with a remote control too. This enables you to skip, pause, play and rewind whatever you’re listening to.

Waterproof

Many sports headphones are made with waterproof materials to prevent sweat and water from causing wear and tear to your headphones.

Battery Life

If you are investing in a pair of wireless or Bluetooth headphones, battery life is important to consider. Some headphones come with portable charging cases for extra power on the go, whereas others need to be charged regularly. Depending on how and when you intend to use your headphones, a long battery life may be a significant factor in your buying decision.

Cord Length & Type

Despite the push for a cordless world, some headphones still come with a cable and back up auxiliary connection—mostly for uses such as disk jockeying or recording. If you are buying a pair of wired headphones, check your device has a compatible port or adapter, as more and more brands are attempting to phase out the headphone jack and prioritise wireless connection.

Accessories & Cases

Much like smartphones, headphones are now higher ticket items that require protection against bumps and scratches. At Officeworks you can explore our protective for your precious AirPods, other wireless earphone charging cases and universal over-ear headphone cases. These accessories are not only a great way to showcase your style but also ensure you don’t mistakenly swipe someone else’s headphones. Discover our range of Headphone and Earbud Cases here.
