The range of headphones on offer has been expanding so rapidly that it is hardly possible to describe all their features in one short review. Nonetheless, a brief guide to modern headphones will give you an idea of what type meets your needs best. It is essential to underline that low price does not always mean poor quality of sounding. The difference is usually in the type of headphones: cheaper in-ear buds are the best friends of sporstmen and commuters, while open-back over-ear headphones are ideal for high-quality listening at home. In spite of being so small, good earbuds do provide high-quality sounding. Often they owe their efficiency to an isolating silicone tip blocking outside noises. On-ear headphones use pads sittting on your ears or closed cups that help to keep the sound inside. One of possible problems with this type of headphones is that sound quality get reduced once there is a lack of seal with your ear. Over-ear headphones boast their perfect noise isolation, but might be too large to be used anywhere. The are a perfect option for those who like watching movies at home. Open-back headphones have also been designed for those who prefer listing to music in total silence. They are certainly not a good option for outdoor use. In this case it is better to consider a model with noise-cancelling feature. It is a smart set which gets rid of noise using a microphone. The latter functions as a monitor to trace and inverse the noise.
