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

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-Canceling

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.

XC1 Communicator for XBox

July 17, 2013

I purchased this for my son, who is heavily into Black Ops online multiplayer. This is actually our second unit, as the first one's boom mic failed after a few months. Unlike some of his friends, he prefers a single ear cup as opposed to two...he seems to prefer being able to hear Mom calling him for dinner. He also likes the fact that it plugs directly into his cordless controller rather than wires running all the way to the Xbox360 console. All in all we would purchase again, as it does what he wants at a good price point. Recommended.

Great headset

June 19, 2013

This headset is far superior to the one that comes with the XBOX. It is more comfortable to wear and the mic boom is longer so when you talk people can hear you. The open ear design is nice. Your ear won’t get sweaty and you can still hear people in the house talking to you.
