How to Choose Headphones For Work and Leisure?

The choice of headphones is not as easy as it sounds. There are models on the market for different tastes and wallets. When giving preference to one brand or another, it is worth considering for what purpose the gadget is being purchased.

Criteria for choosing headphones for your phone

The requirements for headphones for listening to music or for talking on the phone are different. When choosing, consider:

  • The headsets have a different type of connection, it must completely coincide with the one provided by the phone design. When choosing a wireless headset, the connected gadget must support Bluetooth technology. If you intend to listen to music, then the sound should be stable and without interruption. If you have to move a lot, perform certain actions, then wireless options are also better suited.
  • It is important to choose the right headphone shape. The earmolds are placed over the ear canal. They are not as convenient as vacuum models, but they are still securely attached thanks to a special attachment. The on-ear headphones completely cover your ear and are comfortable to use at home.

Each of the aforementioned headset types have their own pros and cons. Therefore, when choosing a headset model for themselves, they decide in advance which of the shortcomings can be tolerated during the daily use of the device.

The volume level transmitted by the device depends on this indicator. The higher the resistance, the quieter the sound. With lower values, there will be no need to enable file playback at the maximum level. At a very low resistance less than 20 ohms, severe distortion will appear. Ideal for a smartphone is readings in the range of 20 to 35 ohms.

You should also pay attention to the weight of the headset and the length of the wire. For wireless, see the battery capacity, which will affect the operating time without recharging.
