If you’re a music lover, or just like to consume media on your smartphone or tablet, then chances are high you have had to struggle to find the perfect headphones. There’s no way you can live with the speakers if you’re a regular media user, we all know Samsung speakers on smartphones aren’t that great.
First of all, we need to identify the different types of headphones, which should be in 3 categories:
Now that you know the basics about headphones, what else do you need to know?
First is the price; headphones can cost upwards of $2,000 just because of the designer. And while they may have excellent quality, it doesn’t mean there aren’t more affordable ones at a fraction of the price. The design also comes into play when you mind how you look with your headphones on; and better design translates to higher cost, naturally.
Diving deeper, you may want to consider more technical stuff like sound profile and impedance. Sound profile is basically which sound frequencies have been accentuated, which results in tags such as ‘Extra Bass’ or ‘Studio’. The former means that the lowest frequencies, the bass, has been accentuated so the sound will be deeper and the latter means that all frequencies are equal.
As for impedance, it simply refers to the amount of power required. Remember, your smartphone provides current to the headphones through the headphone jack, but most smartphones will have limited power output. Find out if the headphones’ impedance is appropriate for your device’s power output.
