On-ear headphones are suited mainly for sports and outdoor listening. They tend to be lightweight, compact, and designed to fit comfortably in your ears or on them.

How to choose on-ear headphones

Design

  • Ear-buds - significantly suppress ambient noise. Compared to similarly priced flat on-ear ear-buds they have better sound are more comfortable.
  • Flat buds - tend to be cheaper, don’t really block ambient noise, and their audio quality is generally lower compared to in-ear ear-buds.
  • On-ear headphones - similarly priced on-ear headphones have better sound than the two above-mentioned types, but they are not as secure; they are more suitable for the gym, cycling, and other sports where they are less likely to fall out of your ears.

Connectivity

  • Wired headphones (3.5mm jack) - have better sound compared to similarly priced wireless headphones, but do not provide as much freedom of movement.
  • Wireless headphones (Bluetooth) - no wires means great freedom of movement (Bluetooth headphones have a range of about 10 meters from the playback device). On the other hand, they have built-in batteries, so they must be recharged on a regular basis.

The data in the chart are merely indicative. Connecting headphones to a particular playback device requires that both devices support the same connection type.

Construction

  • Closed - excels at isolating noise; you don't hear ambient noise and people around you can't overhear what you are listening to.
  • Open - provides faithful music reproduction (less distortion), does not isolate noise.
  • Semi-closed - compromise between the closed and opened ones, particaly isolates noise

Useful features and technology

  • Volume control located on the ear cups or wire.
  • In-built microphone lets you take phone calls without taking off your headphones (if you listen to music on your phone).
  • AptX and AAC - codecs for Bluetooth headphones that ensure higher quality sound, close to that provided by the wired type of connection.
