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.

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.

Music Lover
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 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).
6 - 25000 Hz
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".
104 dB
Driver Size
This refers to the diameter of the driver (speaker) on each side of the headphone.
40 mm
Driver Type
The physical design of the driver in the headphones.
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
40 ohms
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.
Secondary Color
A color that compliments the main color of the product.

I bought these headphones so that I could listen to things online without disturbing my wife. For this, they work well. They do a pretty good job of sealing out external noise and keeping in what I'm listening to. They fit comfortably, although my big ears get a bit warm after a while. I can't judge how they would be for music, because I have never used them for that. I think they are a good value for the money.

How good these headphones are.

February 22, 2013

These headphones are good because: they could go on around your neck if you don't want to put it around your neck,while it is around your neck you could put the volume up and listen to it like that,it has a adjustable band that could stretch over 50, a non tangle red wire. that is why you should get these.

Awesome headphones

October 8, 2012

Great headphones! I bought them somewhere else but thought i would voice my opinion. They looks awesome to start with. The sounds quality is amazing! Great bass and they don't distort when you have them on max. Even when the bass is on full. All in all the best price for the best sound!

Great headphones

October 27, 2012

This is the first on ear headphones i've ever purchased so dont criticize me if i missed something. Anyways i've always used in ear headphones but they tend to fall out or hurt my ears after awhile so I needed something that would stay on my ears when im movin around. I was a little skeptic on the price of $60 but buyin these was an excellent choice for me. First of all they are extremely comfortable, really light, and feature movable cups to make it flat. But best of all, the sound quality is great. They have plenty of the highs, decent mids, could've done a better job, but they do blend in pretty nicely. And for the bass, they are perfect for me, because they have that punchy type of bass response and handle the low frequency fairly well. But if you are a bass head and looking for loud boomy bass this would probably disappoint you. Overall these headphones are a bang in the buck if you are looking for portable, stylish headphones with great sound quality.

I purchased these headphones and i thought they sounded pretty good. They do not stand up though, the leather on the top started to wrinkle as soon as they where put on and after i dropped my ipod once the cord pulled out. They also don't stay on your head very well. Overall I think for the price they should at least have an in-line mic and be a little more durable.

Nice headphone, look good

July 20, 2012

I like these headphones. I also noticed someone else mention that the leather wrinkled on the top. That didnt bother me, I would prefer a little wrinkle (that was hardly noticeable anyways) than a nice crease or break. They sound good. And they look GREAT. Sony has always been a safe bet. This is my 4th pair of Sony headphones.
