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.

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.

This is the lifestyle that the headphones are designed for. Each style has unique features that make it perfect for particular people.

Designed for those that are active. These headphones are made to stay in the ear during workouts. Whether you frequent the gym a lot or go running outside in the fresh air, these active style headphones will be your best friend.

For those that need the best in music quality. These audiophile headphones are engineered to produce high fidelity and accurate audio replication.

Disc Jockeys (DJs) require a special type of headphone that can meet their professional needs. These headphones are durable, loud, and will often allow for one ear listening.

Fashion Enthusiast:
For those that want to make a fashion statement with their headphones. Not only are these headphones designed with great sound quality in mind, but also great looks!

This lifestyle speaks for itself! If you love video games and want a pair of headphones that will deliver explosive sound and allow you to communicate with others, this is where you need to shop!

Music Lover:
These headphones are made to sound great. They are designed to produce rich, brilliant sounds that will play your music in a manner that the artists would appreciate. These headphones are for those that love music.

Musical Production / Recording Artists:
You're a music creator. Whether you're producing and mixing it down or in the studio recording yourself, you need a pair of headphones that will reproduce the music perfectly without any coloration. Look here for reference quality studio monitoring headphones.

Headphones need to be affordable and durable to keep up with the student lifestyle. A variety of styles can be considered a pair of student headphones.

Those that often find themselves on planes or on the road a lot. These headphones are compact, lightweight, and have a portable design. Some of the headphones in this lifestyle will feature noise cancellation technology that will help shut out outside noise.


General Features

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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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).
5 - 28,000 Hz
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
45 ohms
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.
Secondary Color
A color that compliments the main color of the product.

Chattanooga, TN


Bought these back in January and I love them!

February 25, 2013

I bought these at best buy for $**.** and I have no intentions of getting rid of them. I have the red one's and they have a very unique style to them and the sound is amazing. I spent a lot of time in best buy listening to all the different headphones that they had and for the price and sound quality of these, I bought them. They could even be comparable to the Solo HD's, at a $*** less. I like that they come with 2 cords for convenience of use, but I don't like that they lack a remote/ in-line mic. They are Dj headphones so I don't imagine a Dj having a use for it. Also if you are the type that listens to music hours at a time, these can start to hurt your ears; I guess because of how snug they are on your head for long periods, but they are comfortable until that point.

Studio City, CA


good build, convenient swivel, its pioneer

July 19, 2012

I read the other review written here, and it's funny and unfortunate because I bought the 500TK first, but needed the exact opposite. So, I switched for these. They took them back and I was able to get the right ones. SEATTLE645 - try switching to the 500TK series! Sorry if it's too late. I have had these now for 4 months and they have been great. These are one of the few, true DJ style headphones. It sickens me seeing all these cheap little brands calling their headphones DJ, or PRO, or STUDIO to try and up the value of them. These are the real deal and cheaper than the 1000 and 2000 series. Perfect for DJing, or even just using for pleasure. I would absolutely recommend to anyone who is trying to use them in the right application.

Well Android phone owners be warned.

July 19, 2012

I would recommend this product to people with iPhones. If you have an Android phone DO NOT buy this, as the sound will not go above a low whisper on a phone call. The other included cord changed the music side of it though. Sounded great. But unfortunately, I bought these solely to have an inline mic for when I was at the gym. Oh well. Sucks to be me, but now I can save someone else money and the pain of buying these. I have a Galaxy S2, so my phone is pretty current.
