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.

Earbuds
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.

In-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.
Yes
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.

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.
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).
18 - 22,000 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".
105 dB
Impedance
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
36 ohms
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.
Black
Secondary Color
A color that compliments the main color of the product.
Silver

Noise Cancelling - I'm not sure yet ......

March 30, 2014

To do a test I put music into a room fairly loud - then put on the JVC-HA NCX78's and I was dissapointed that I could still hear the music more than just a little bit .....so I don't know for sure if they will do the job for me in airplanes which is the main reason I bought them. Haven't flown anywhere for the past several weeks so I will have to wait to find out ......I am hoping that the rush of air noises will be substantially lessened .......I have rated the overall category as just one star because I just don't know how these will work in an airplane environment....

Good & Bad

July 28, 2013

Small, lightweight, good sound. BUT Turning on the noise cancelling seems to have no effect at all. Putting the ear buds into my ears does block the noise, but the buds have a tendency to come out. Putting in the buds & getting them to stay is difficult.

Excellent Value, very comfortable

March 2, 2013

I bought these after buying the over ear headphones and I loved them. I needed something I could walk around campus with and something that wouldn't require me to have over-ear headphones on. These did the trick. Comparable sound quality, excellent noise isolation, not cancelling, but a good deal of isolation. Background noise is muffled and all I hear is my music. Amazing product for the cost.
