Buying Guide to Select the Best Wireless Headphones
As just mentioned, wireless headphones are not all the same: they can be distinguished by shape, type of sound, and other technical characteristics. Here are the peculiarities that you must consider more before proceeding with the purchase. For example, you will find out for sure if they are better for you than on-ear or over best noise cancelling headphones,
The headphones, according to their format, are divided into on-ear (supra-aural) and over-ear / around-ear (circumaural): the former are smaller and rest directly above the ear pads, the latter is more abundant and they have protruding “pads” that allow you to enclose the ear pads in the ear pads.
The over-ears are heavier and bulkier than the on-ears, but they ensure more excellent isolation from the external environment. You have to choose them according to your needs and which ones are more comfortable to wear.
A distinction must also be made between open, half-open, and closed headphones. As can be easily understood, the closed headphones ensure the maximum degree of sound insulation (they do not let sounds from outside pass through, and they do not make those around you hear what they are listening to).
Still, they can annoy those who are not used to wear them, the open ones instead guarantee greater comfort but do not isolate the sound. The half-open ones try to provide a good compromise between the first two.
Choose the headphones according to your aesthetic tastes but even more according to their degree of comfort: they must adapt to your head’s shape and be “compatible” with all your needs and requirements.
For example, if you wear glasses, you must be careful to buy comfortable, possibly adjustable headphones, which will not bother you every time you wear them. It is these details that make the difference.
The headphones, depending on the number of audio channels supported and the number of speakers inside them, can be stereo, 5.1, or 7.1. The stereo ones, which support two audio channels, are equipped with two speakers – one per ear – and are ideal for listening to music.
The 5.1 and 7.1 headphones respectively support 5.1 and 7.1 audio channels and are particularly suitable for gaming activities.
Watch the video given below to get an idea about how to choose the best wireless headphones.
They are divided into real and virtual: the real ones have four or five speakers per ear, while the virtual ones have one speaker per ear like stereo headphones and simulate 5.1 or 7.1 surrounds via software.
As readily understood, real 5.1 or 7.1 headphones are much more expensive and rare to find than virtual ones, which do not always guarantee good sound.
It is important to underline how virtual 5.1 and 7.1 headphones, in most cases, work in 5.1 and 7.1 modes only on PC. On video game consoles like PS4 and Xbox One, they work in stereo mode as they cannot rely on the audio processing software available on computers.
Moral of the story: for music, it is always better to choose stereo headphones, for gaming and watching movies you can consider 5.1 or 7.1 surround headphones, but they must be of good quality, otherwise better opt for the classic stereo headphones even in these cases.
Wireless Technology and Range
Wireless headphones can be based on various communication technologies. The most common ones, which I recommend you prefer, are the Bluetooth ones, but there are also radio frequency headphones and infrared headphones.
Headphones that use an infrared system are very cheap and guarantee the excellent sound quality, but have a somewhat limited range (I recommend them only if you have to stay within the confines of a single room). Radiofrequency (RF) headphones are much more efficient, manage to have a range of up to 100 meters, and offer excellent sound quality.
The Bluetooth headset, which is currently the most popular, have a range of about 10 meters, by their nature, they compress the audio signal (although the most advanced models ensure a quality practically indistinguishable from that guaranteed by headphones with cable) and have the unquestionable advantage of being able to connect to devices such as computers, smartphones, and tablets without resorting to external receivers.
Microphone and Controls
As previously mentioned, most Bluetooth headsets have a microphone to answer calls (and interact with the voice assistants of smartphones, such as Siri or Google Assistant) and commands that allow you to control multimedia playback and adjust listening volume.
The controls are almost always universal in that they work the same way regardless of the device to which the headphones are connected. Still, there are special cases where the controls are compatible only with specific devices (e.g., only with Android or only with iPhone / iPad). Get informed on this point before making your purchase.
