With every passing day, technology is getting improved and latest innovations are getting induced into it. Wireless headphones are one such innovation of technology that has transformed the experience of listening to music by doing away with the mess that wired headphones caused. Headphones provide a new direction to enhance the taste of music lovers. Generally, it happens that we cannot enjoy the music properly without headphones due to the external noises. If you are much keen about the beats and instrumentation of the music, then headphones are highly beneficial for you as it provides better sound to your ears.
You may often find the wires of your headphone angled which annoy you while getting stuck into different objects. Wireless headphones are already in high demand among the youngsters of this age as these use improved wireless technology and provide ease of comfort to carry the cable.
If you are going to buy anything related to technology especially the headphones, then a decision made by the check of outer appearance can lead to the making of the wrong choice. So, get a technological device by making the decision wisely. Scroll down to know the required things.
- Distinctive types
Wireless headphones can be categorized into two types— one that requires a separate transmitter and another that doesn’t.
Infra-red and radio frequency headphones fall in the first category. Infra-red is best suited for TV. There should not be any obstruction in the line of sight between the headphones and transmitter, implying there are limits on both the distance and angle at which you can use them.
It is a good choice to have the Bluetooth system, if you want headphones without a transmitter. These comes with Bluetooth technology embedded into the source device; phones, gaming consoles, laptops and many modern TVs will all have this. Bluetooth has a range of about 32 feet (10 meters). These headphones are the best for general use.
- Quality of sound
The biggest argument versus the use of Bluetooth headphones is that they offer poor sound quality. This is due to the reason that Bluetooth was not originally designed for streaming high-quality music. However, The Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) was introduced to enable a high-quality stereo audio transmission through the SBC codec, achieving exceptional quality. Manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Samsung, and HTC include aptX on their devices. Another problem with Bluetooth headphones is latency, i.e. the delay between the received audio signal and in the hearing of music. You may not notice this flaw if you are listening music, but if you are watching a video, the sound may be slightly out of sync. Latency varies depending on hardware and software configurations of the device in use. Bluetooth 4.0 has low latency, enabling you to get better results than the previous versions.
- NFC technology
Along with having the NFC technology, wireless headphones are very easy to use. You need to pair them with the audio device and this is normally done through the Bluetooth software built into the device. You will have to enter a unique password during installation. Some headphones are also compatible with NFC technology that allows devices to communicate simply by being in the vicinity of each other. This can reduce the need to enter access codes for the initial configuration. It also speeds up the process of reconnecting the devices for further use. This revolutionary wireless technology enables devices to connect just by holding them in close proximity to one another.
- Battery backup
Wireless headphones get the power in the form of a built-in rechargeable battery or disposable batteries. In many headphones that require a wireless transmitter, the transmitter itself often functions as a charger. Wireless headphones with low-impedance need less power to function and hence can be easily used with source devices such as media players, smartphones and other portable devices. High-impedance headphones need dedicated amplifiers for greater amplification in order to drive and deliver a more power-driven performance. If you get annoyed from charging easily, then search for a battery that can provide regular use of 8- 10 hours.
- Size and shape
There are 3 designs that are available in the wireless headphones: ‘over-ear’, ‘in-ear ‘and ‘on-ear’. The first two are very similar to their cable variants. In-ear, tend to be slightly different. The size of the headphone is subjective implying that you must be comfortable while using them and not easily get displaced.
- Keep the control in your hands
Generally, headphones come with lots of buttons embedded into the cable that are used to start, stop and skip song or answer calls. Wireless headphones do not have this option, although some basic controls are attached to microphone. Keep a check about that while buying new headphones.
Extrapolation of the above points provides you a way to get a better sound coming into your ears. No more stress now of tangled wires and ear bleeding noise with wireless headphones. Feel the divinity of music and provide soothing beats to your heart.
