Headphone Design

Headphone Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Over the Head
Earpiece Design

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

Enclosed-Ear
Specifically For
Some headphones can use an IR Transmitter in your vehicle, while some can be plugged into your media device and be used on the go or at home.
Home/Portable
Acoustic Principle
The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types: Open: Have ports that allow air through the back of the diaphragms, enabling the headphones to sound like the music is coming from an outside source. Closed: Completely sealed and have no air passing through the diaphragms. Sounds like you are in a closed off room. Semi-open: Have slots or ports in the back of the cup and are partially open. This allows for a mixed sound between an open and closed headphone.

General Features

Noise-Canceling
Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
No
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

Corded
1/4" Stereo Jack Adapter
Some headphones will come with a 1/4" stereo jack adapter to connect the usual 3.5mm jack to a 1/4" stereo plug.

1/4" Stereo jack is a larger audio jack that select electronics have.

Yes
Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
No
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
20 - 20,100 Hz
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
90 dB
Impedance
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
100 ohms

Really nice phones, plenty of detail. Bass is nice, sufficient and not over exaggerated. Definitely one of the best HP under $300 price range.

Je recommande l'achat de ce produit. Je joue de la guitare et ces écouteurs sont à 100 ohms ils sonnent très bien avec le POD 2. De plus, les oreilles chauffent moin parce qu'ils sont ouvert. Il y a sûrement mieux mais pour le prix c'est très bien. "I recommend the purchase of this product. I play guitar and these headphones are 100 ohms they sound great with the POD 2. In addition, heat moin ears because they are open. There are certainly better but for the price it is very good."

Excellent Value

March 22, 2012

For the price, you can't really go wrong with these headphones. Excellent for listening at home, these headphones work particularly well with acoustic, classical, and jazz. Nonetheless, they also push well in the bass making them well balanced and enjoyable (although probably disappointing if hip-hop and bass driven music is your thing). With proper amplification and quality sound files, these are simply unbeatable at this price range. The construction could be sturdier, but they are among the lightest and most comfortable I have ever used. Over extended periods, you forget you are even wearing them.

Cars and Headphones

February 20, 2012

These headphones are pretty solid. They are built well (of course, they are made in Germany. They know how to build Cars for sure, and now i guess they know how to build headphones too). They sound best when hooked up to a sufficient analog amp in my opinion, but great clarity all around. There isnt overwhelming Bass, and the mids and highs have a great presence when the bass is hitting. I really Dig these. My music teacher has a pair of German Meistro's, and i swear they are the same headphone, but he paid a hell of a lot more HAHAHAhaha.

Excellent Built in Germany

November 10, 2011

I just bought these headphones and so far have only put about 24 hours into burn in, and i am impressed. They are super comfortable, even when listening for hours at a time, and MADE in GERMANY! You can really tell the difference in a quality built set of cans. They are warm and rich sounding. Very balanced! The highs are crisp, but very present. For the price?! Its a no-brainer, I already recommended it to 3 of my friends who were all impressed when i demo'd them some Pink Floyd - The Wall.
