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

Traveler
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.
Closed

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
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.
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).
10 - 26000 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".
100 dB
Driver Size
This refers to the diameter of the driver (speaker) on each side of the headphone.
42 mm
Driver Type
The physical design of the driver in the headphones.
Dynamic

Great and comfortable pair of headphones!

September 29, 2014

By no means am I an audiophile, but I feel I can still appreciate the sound of some good 'phones. The NVX's are extremely comfortable to wear, even for long periods of time and with eyeglasses (I'm an all-day wearing of my specs so this was important!). My ears never feel sweaty or like my skull is weighed down while they're on. They're actually a pleasure to wear! They feel sturdy so far, but I'm not rough on any of my possessions so I can't speak for how well they'll stand up to drops and such. They're bulky though and not exactly the greatest things to wear around in public. The XPTs are large and noticeable from far off, but if you're okay with that these babies are more than worth that small shortcoming. As far as sound goes, they seem very balanced to me. No single tone seems to outshine the other at any point; the bass is warm but not loud, vocals shine but aren't overpowering, and you can definitely hear every instrument in a song without any of them feeling muddied or muffled by another. The bass is clear in rap songs where it's needed and invisible in songs where it's not, which is another huge point for them. In all I love these headphones and feel like I couldn't have made a better choice in buying them.

Very Comfortable and Good Sound Quality

August 4, 2014

I've been using in-ear headphones for a long time and I wasn't sure about over-ear headphones. But with XPT100 you'll get a great sound for the money and it's so comfortable you'll want to keep them on your ears even when you're not listening.

No need to look further if your budget is up to $100

April 14, 2014

I have tried few headphones before settling with the XPT100s. What I like about them is: 1. Comfort - You will not forget that you have them on but the padding is very generous and does not put pressure on your ears in any spots. Though due to their size they are not suitable for outdoor use unless you do not care how you look. At home - very comfy. 2. Large ear cups - I like when headphones do not touch my ears and they are perfect in this area. 3. Sound - Very natural sounding and easy to listen to. There are no harsh highs or booming lows. Soundstage is somewhat lacking but that can be expected from a closed headphones. Overall you can listen to them for hours without fatigue. 4. Isolation - They isolate very well. I guess that's due to the large ear cups and extra padding. 5. Short cable (in an addition to a long cable) - Good when your main use is laptop or mp3 player so you do not have to trip over extra feet of cable. So far I have no dislikes. I haven't rated durability as I own them only for a few weeks. So far they have held up pretty well. NOTE: I put 3 out of 5 (middle) just because I can't submit no rating. I would highly recommend them if you want good home headphones on a limited budget.

Love them!

March 18, 2014

I love them! They are more then comfortable. The clamp is light and the cushions feel like leather pillows wrapped around your ears. I really like the appearance of them, totally my style with that dark brushed look. Some have complained about the super flexy headband, but I actually like it. Some have also complained about the big carrying case, but I actually like that too; I throw it in my gym bag with everything else on a daily basis for work and I know they're safe. I guess my ONLY complaint, and a small one at that, is that on devices that don't output allot of power will make you wanting the volume louder when already maxed out. But, I will probably be getting a portable amp/dac combo for that. also, the extra angled ear pads i found nice when laying down, because you can tilt the headphones foward and still have a proper fit. as for the sound: clear and clean. these are very nuetral headphones, which makes them very versitile. youtube/netflix is great due to this. also, i am a little sensative to high treble, and these headphones let me listen without discomfort. it's exactly what i wanted, nuetral sound with easy-to-listen treble, and clean bass ( i don't listen to rap or anything, and i don't like over-done, muddy deep bass ) and extremely comfortable. for the price, get these no questions asked.

Best reference headphones under $150. Period.

February 3, 2014

These make the legendary-status Creative Aurvana Live! ($60 to $80) sound bad. That said, there is no headphone currently near this price that will deliver the same neutrality, accuracy, control, or comfort that the XPT100s do. I could do an extensive comparison between these and the other sets of headphones I own (CAL!, ATH-M50, Panasonic HTF600, Marley EM-JH020-MI, I could go on), but I won't because there is simply nothing to compare. These win in every aspect except for portability. The cheapest headphone that compares to the NVX XPT100 is the $170 Sennheiser HD25-II 1. If you are looking for at-home listening cans, buy these now. You needn't spend any more time reading reviews, finding comparisons, or doing any other kind of research.

Excellent, maximum bang for your buck!

September 17, 2013

Prior headphones: Senn HD650, grado sr325is, where se530, audio technical es7, vmoda m100 These headphones are very impressive. Out of all my headphones, these are the most neutral. They have a decent soundstage that doesn't get congested. Their sound is the most versatile, doing justice to all varieties of music, faithfully. They benefit from amping, but don't need anything powerful. Unless you have a solid DAC/amp, these are superior to even the senn 650s. I've never purchased a headphone that was as worthy as these, given they're only 100 dollars. Compared to the $300 M100s, these are absolutely superior. These lack any strong coloration, which depending on what you're looking for, may sound dull at first. The construction feels a little flimsy at first, and they could be a little tighter( build wise, not fit). However the trade off is these are incredibly light, and very comfortable ( I personally prefer the default flat pads). Bottom line: if you're looking for a cheap jump into the headphone world, honestly look no further- I've also heard where 840s, Sony MDR v6, audio technical m50s, akg k240s. None of them provide such textured bass, smooth mids, and detailed treble, with such comfort and low amp requirements for $100. Lack of portability is the only limitation. Get 'em!

I've been using these headphones for the past several months and they have really grown on me. I had previously been using HD280 pros and M50s for my monitoring but these have fit right in with my standard issue headphones. The angled ear pads make this more comfortable than my others so i find that i'm using them more. I'd recommend them.

Excellent Studio Headphones

October 23, 2012

These headphones are flat out amazing. They firmly, yet comfortably, cup your ears so you are isolated in the experience. They are soft and will not make your ears over heat. The large 42mm neodymium drivers deliver the 10hz-26khz sound and expose parts of songs I had never heard before. I thoroughly enjoy my music, or I can really work in these to deliver an accurate mix to a client in whatever environment I am mixing in. With the warranty and all the extras they come with you would really be doing yourself a disservice to not at least take a listen. I'm buying a second set.

These headphones are awesome. The sound is better than any other headphones I have every used and they are comfortable enough to wear for hours. The noise reduction is so good I canít hear my wife yelling at me in the background. They give a whole new meaning to drowning in sound. I can't wait to use them on long plane trips.

I needed a good pair of headphones that wouldn't break the bank but still provide a good sound and not feel like weights on my ears. These are the most clean sounding ones I could find in my price range that wouldn't give me a headache from too much bass or treble.
