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.

On-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

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.

Bluetooth
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.

No
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.
Yes
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.
4mm Omni Directional Microphone
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 - 20,000 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".
117 dB
Driver Type
The physical design of the driver in the headphones.
Dynamic
Impedance
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
32 ohms

Looks great, feels ok, sounds ok

March 2, 2011

-Looks great, always get comments on it. -Earpads are comfortable except when worn for extended periods. -Sound is alright, noticeably less than wired headphones (have not had other bluetooth headphones so can't compare to that) -Pairing is relatively quick, except sometimes it only works after re-pairing (don't know if that's a problem with my phone) -Strong yet flexible design. -Have yet to find a product compatible with apt-x but will update.

LOVE THESE HEADPHONES

April 7, 2014

I had been using the Motorola Bluetooth headsets. I need wireless for my workouts at the gym but the sound quality and durability were not that great. I saw that the JayBird were really highly rated so tried these! WOW! They sound like Bose speakers in your ears, really comfortable - perfect sound!

Conclusions

September 18, 2013

Unfortunately I am not very happy with it. After about 15 minutes my ears start to heart because the fit is to tight. My face is not the problem, I am only 155 pound on 5'10" with a "narrow" face. Sound quality can't match my cheap Koss Porta Pro. The good news to make telephone calls over Skype or Google they are excellent if you don't talk over 15 minutes then the fit is a problem. I bought Gogroove so I can use my Koss wireless but the microphone there is lacking. Overall I am disappointed with the product.

Good idea, poor execution

June 27, 2011

I love the idea of bluetooth headphones to work out with but unfortunately, these simply do not stay on your head. Even before I get sweaty they want to fall forward, and when I do get sweaty its a perpetual battle. I was overall very disappointed with the fit of these headphones. Style wise, they are not my thing, but far from awful. The earphones are much smaller than you would think from the pictures but in general they seem well made. Sound quality was marginally better than an Apple earbud but the bass was artificially loud. Aside from that I did not experience much issue with the bluetooth connectivity. I really like the idea, value, and would tolerate the look of these headphones but they simply do not stay on my head. Deal breaker! They have been sitting on my desk for months now unused and I am back to the Apple earbuds until something better rolls along.
