Compared with similarly priced in-ear headphones, over-ear headphones are more comfortable and offer better sound quality. Because of their larger dimensions and heavier weight, they are more suitable for home use.

When choosing headphones, first consider how you will use them

Headphones for PC or laptops

For gaming, office work, or as a versatile PC headset, we recommend over-ear headphones. They are comfortable even during extended listening sessions, and compared with similarly expensive in-ear headphones, they offer superior sound quality. For gaming or Internet video conversations, choose a headset with a microphone.

Headphones for life on the go

When travelling on the bus, train, or plane, earbuds and in-ear headphones are the most convenient, as are headphones with a folding design. In short, go for something lightweight and compact.

What else should I look for when choosing headphones?

Connections

  • Wired headphones (3.5mm jack, USB) - compared with similarly expensive wireless heahphones, they offer better sounds quality but less freedom of movement.
  • Wireless headsets (Bluetooth, radio frequency) - with no wires, they provide greater freedom of movement (Bluetooth headsets have a range of approx. 10 metres from the playback device; radio frequency up to 100 metres). Wireless headphones have built-in batteries and must be recharged.

The data in the table are indicative only. To use the headphones with a particular playback device, both devices must support the same type of connection.

Construction

  • Closed - dampen ambient noise.
  • Open - provide high-quality sounds (less distortion) but with some ambient noise
  • Semi-closed - a compromise between open and closed headphones.

Useful functions and features

  • Volume control - located on the headphones or cable.
  • Folding design - for easy portability.
  • Rotating ear cups - comfortably listen to music in one ear (especially useful for DJs).
  • 7.1 surround sound - hear where a particular sound is coming from (especially useful for gamers).
  • APTX and AAC - codecs for Bluetooth headphones that guarantee higher quality sound.
  • NFC - technology used in connection with Bluetooth headsets, which accelerates and facilitates their connection with the playback device.

Design
ear (316)
around the ears (177)

Clearly defines the headphone design. Earbuds and canalbuds are suitable for sport or travel, while full-size headphones are suitable for comfortable home listening or as a PC accessory. 

Construction
Closed (372)
Open (60)
Semi-closed (17)

Construction is one of the main criteria in the selection. Closed headphones isolate you from the noise around you and also keep others from hearing your music, while the open design allows more natural sound reproduction, but at the expense of sound passing through the cups.

An electrical parameter expressing resistance circuits in microphones. It is measured in ohms and its value is important for an optimal microphone-to-amplifier connection.

USB Type-A (40)
USB Type-C (USB-C) (2)
6.3 mm Jack (39)
Bluetooth with dongle (5)

3.5mm jack connector (in case of PC headphones, a pair of 3.5mm jack connectors or USB connector) is definitely the most widespread connector type. Wireless headsets, using Bluetooth or radio channels for connection, are also increasing in popularity.  

Cable length
1 m
6 m

Shorter cables are ideal for portable earphones as they are harder to tangle. Headphones for home use (eg. TV headphones), on the other hand, can provide more comfort with longer cables.

Cable routing
Unilateral (in one shell) (297)
Bilateral (in both shells) (93)

There are single-side and double-side headphone cables – single-side headphones have the advantage of a single cable connected to a headset, effectively preventing the wire from getting tangled.

Frequency from
3 Hz
350 Hz

Frequency is one of the most important parameters when choosing headphones. Generally, the higher frequency range of headphones, the better sound quality. The lower limit of the frequency range deals with bass reproduction. Frequency is measured in Hertz (Hz).

Frequency to
10,000 Hz
120,000 Hz

Frequency is one of the most important parameters when choosing headphones. Generally, the higher frequency range of headphones, the better sound quality. The upper limit of the frequency range deals with treble reproduction. Frequency is measured in Hertz (Hz).

Sensitivity
60 dB/mW

Sensitivity is measured in decibels per milliwatt, or dB/mW, and describes the sound pressure level. Generally, the higher the sensitivity, the better the headphones are for sound reproduction. A higher value also indicates higher volume.

Sound card (9)

Impedance
16 Ohm
600 Ohm

An electrical parameter expressing resistance circuits in headphones in ohms. Headphones with lower impedance have a higher volume (important for portable media players), but greater distortion. Larger impedance equals lower volumes and lower distortion.
