One of the most commonly used accessories of smartphones is headphones or earphones. What precautions should be taken before buying it? No headphones or earphones in the market should be purchased without proper checks and some necessary things. Today, we are going to tell you some of the essential things you need to do when you buy earphones, which can help you choose better headphones.
Which earphones or headphones is better to buy:
Usually, there are two kinds of earphones or headphones in the market-the wired and bluetooth. It is necessary to charge Bluetooth headphones or earphones. Bluetooth headphones are heavy because of the inbuilt battery. So, if you regularly use headphones for 6 to 7 hours a day, it would be a better option for you to buy wired headphones.
Over-ear headphones: Over-ear headphones cover the whole ears. Also, large drivers can be easily installed because of their large size, giving faster sound and better bass. Simultaneously, these headphones reduce the noise outside to a great extent because of the full ear cover.
Earbuds: At present, there is a lot of demand for earbuds. Earbuds are the only small form of headphones. Users get the feel of both earphones and headphones. However, the price of the earbuds is higher than that of earphones or headphones. Headphones come with a voice assistant and noise cancellation features.
So far, most headphones had 3.5mm jack connectivity. But now some headphones come with USB Type-C connectivity. But the problem with USB-Type-C headphones is that they cannot be used at the time of charging, as the same port is available for charging and connectivity. It would be better to take headphones with different charging and connectivity. However, this problem can also be removed from the Bluetooth speaker.
What are the drivers:
The driver is the most important part of the headphones. This is what makes the sound in the headphones. Although there are many different kinds of drivers, all three things are magnets, voice coils, and diaphragm. All these components produce vibrations in the diaphragm. These vibrations make sound webs that can hear our ears. In headphone specifications, you often see the diaphragm diameter. Its diameter is measured in millimeter mm. At the same time, the bigger the driver, the better the quality of the headphones. Always buy headphones with large size drivers.
Driver and Drum Size:
Before taking earphones or headphones, you must check what the driver's size is. The bigger the driver, the better the sound quality. If more than one driver is given, that is an even better sound. At present, different drivers are being given to the base. However, the price of headphones with more drivers is also high. Also, while buying headphones, you must look at its quality, meaning plastic casing or drum earphones do not make a good sound. Always buy earphones with metal drums. If wooden drums are being given, it is much better. But they do not last long.
Mic and The Sound:
When buying an earphone, keep in mind that it has an in-built mic so that you can receive calls while listening to music. Also, test the sound quality before buying headphones or earbuds. Do not buy headphones if the sound of headphones or earbuds is bad when the volume is increased. Always choose the earbuds that are used to make the outside voice at least heard.
