Why Should I Buy Wireless Headphones/Earphones Instead of Wired Ones?

One of the first questions that come to a buyer’s mind while shopping for a pair of headphones is whether it should be wired or wireless. Following are a list of pros and cons of choosing one over the other.

  Why Choose Wireless Headphones?

  • There’s nothing more convenient than having a pair of completely wireless headphones that work seamlessly with our gadgets. Wireless headphones give users freedom from being physically attached to their laptops or mobiles. It gives users the ability to go for a run, board a train or workout in the gym without tangled wires getting in their way.
  • The best Bluetooth headsets keep getting more smart features added. They now come with voice assistants, active noise cancellation features and in-built apps that can measure your workouts and heart rates. They are also built with water-resistance to keep them safe from sweat during workouts and have wireless fast-charging with hours of battery life.
  • They provide convenient control features to control playback and adjust volume without needing to access the device.
  • Wireless earphones keep getting more compact, lightweight and easy to carry.
  • By getting better in quality and cheaper than ever before, true wireless earbuds have become top sellers worldwide in just a few years.

  Why Choose Wired Headphones?

  • While the cost of Bluetooth headphones has come down considerably in recent years, they usually cost a lot more than wired headphones. This is because wireless headphones are more complex and are a set of several devices which end up costing more.
  • They have a limited lifetime like all other battery-powered products like your smartphones.
  • For the same price, wired headphones have significantly better sonic performance than their wireless counterparts.

The choice between wireless and wired headphones boils down to choosing between sound quality and convenience. If you want the highest quality of sound, wired headphones are better. Wireless headphones are the better choice when you don’t want the inconvenience of tangled wires and getting tied down to your devices. These are the best Bluetooth headset for music while working out, in crowded commutes and on long flights.

What Are the Various Types of Bluetooth Headphones?

Another thing to consider while looking for the Bluetooth headsets is the type of the headset. The most basic forms of headphones are:

i.    In-Ear Headphones

These are the most portable type of earphones/earbuds. They are inserted in the ear canal and come in all range of prices. These can be disposable earphones given in aeroplanes to high-end buds that can match full-sized headphones sonically. Some models can have wings or fins for a more secure fit. In-ear Bluetooth earphones can be further classified into 3 types-

·         Earbuds- also called true wireless earbuds, these are small and ultra-portable models. They often come with earbud tips which are placed at the edge of the ear canals.

·         Ear clip- They feature loop made of comfortable foam pad that goes around your ears to prevent them from falling off during workouts or running.

·         Behind-the-neck/Neckband earphones- These have a short neckband that lies around your neck comfortably. The neckband offers more than convenience and comfort as it houses a battery and Bluetooth transmitter, ensuring better battery life and connectivity.

ii.   On-Ear Headphones

These provide a better listening experience over the smaller in-ears while being more portable than over-ear headphones. They have a compact design and smaller ear-cups than over-ears, and as a result, some of them can have longer battery life. However, they are less comfortable as the smaller earcups exert some pressure on your ears.

iii.  Over-Ear Headphones

These are the largest headphones of the three types of earphones that come up for a search query like- “best Bluetooth wireless earphones” and fully encompass your ears. There are two variations of these headphones- closed-back and open-back.They come with thick headbands and large earcups making them very comfortable and have excellent noise cancellation abilities. However, they are bulkier than all other types of headphones, which makes them difficult to carry around.

What Are the Pros and Cons of Buying in-Ear, on-Ear and Over-Ear Headphones?

    In-Ear

  • These usually have good passive noise isolation because the ear-tips seal to your ear, blocking background noises.
  • They are available in all sorts of price ranges as they used to the consumer standard.
  • They are ideal for exercising and running as they have several features made for athletes. They can come with ear loops and neckbands for easy-carrying,and some come with wings/fins for a secure fit which helps use them for several hours.

   Cons:

  • Their small size and lightweight design make them easy to misplace.
  • Size limitations of in-ears make it harder for engineers to design them for accurate audio reproduction. These results in “audiophile” earbuds costing a lot more than most people are willing to pay.

On-Ear

  Pros:

  • On-ear headphones are great for listeners who want portability while having the benefits of over-ear headphones. While it’s nowhere as portable as in-ears, they often include collapsible or rotating hinges for easy storage.
  • As it does not entirely enclose your ears, they produce less heat on it. Thus, you don’t need to take these off every once in a while.

  • Generally speaking, over-ear headphones can reproduce accurate audio across various frequencies from sub-bass to treble notes. They can produce loud bass notes easily because of their large drivers, something smaller headsets have trouble producing without using multi-driver systems.
  • Over-ear headphones have better soundscape.
  • They generally have good noise isolation.
  • They usually have greater comfort and better battery life than smaller options.

  Cons:

  • Its large size compared to all other types of headphones is both its most significant advantage and disadvantage. These headphones take up a lot of space in your bag and are generally inconvenient to carry around.
  • They produce heat on your ears, which is why you have to take them off every once in a while.

When Should I Buy- Earbuds and True Wireless Earbuds?

A brief comparison of in-ear Bluetooth headphones/earbuds and truly wireless earbuds is given as follows:

  • Standard in-ear Bluetooth headphones/earbuds typically have a neckband connecting each earbud, while truly wireless headphone sare completely wire-free.
  • Neckbands make earbuds the best for runners who want the security of a wire around their necks while having the freedom of a wireless connection. With no wires, truly wireless headphones offer no hindrance but increase the risk of losing the expensive audio kit.
  • Wireless earbuds have a large base sitting around the neck, providing controls and Bluetooth connection. True wireless earbuds offer the control features from the earbuds themselves.
  • Some ‘Truly Wireless’ earbuds have advanced features such as noise cancellation, hearing loss adaption, sound amplification etc. These are the best Bluetooth headsets for mobile as they can improve music, amplify speech, cancel out loud noises, improve hearing and supports total customization with a smartphone app.
  • As long as a pair of earbuds has IP rating for sweat and water resistance and a decent bass level, it becomes appropriate for workout sessions. A truly wireless headphone has no wires to distract you during a workout session and a high IP rating to protect the headphones from sweat. With no cords to get tangled during exercising and no wires to pound against your neck as you run, true wireless has the edge over standard earbuds as a workout companion.
  • Truly wireless earbuds are usually costlier than standard earbuds and have smaller batteries.

When Is It Worth Buying a Dedicated Gaming Headset?

Gaming headsets can improve your and your teammate’s gaming experience considerably,but it is substantially difficult to find a good one among many gimmicky ones on the market. Good gaming headsets have plenty of useful hardware and software features. Surround sound is a popular feature among gaming headsets and gives you an edge by making it easier to locate auditory cues. Most gaming headphones also have an external boom mic, which is more cost-effective than buying a headset and a USB microphone separately.

On the other hand, there are a ton of bad and unusable gaming headsets in the market. Making a purchase without doing sufficient research could waste you a lot of money. Moreover, most gaming headphones have a distinct look with flashy RGB lights and geometric shapes that looks too silly to use it outside your home.

Open vs Closed-Back Designs-Which One Is Better?

Open-Back Headphones

These allow air to pass to the speaker element through the ear-cups, which prevents the build-up of pressure and little echoes inside the headphone. Many high-end and best Bluetooth headsets have open backs, which help them sound more clearly and naturally.

  Pros:

  • One of the main benefits and uniqueness of an open-back design is that it provides an “in the world around me” type of listening experience. Instead of dampening or completely removing the sound around you, open-back headphones lets sound from outside bleed inside your headphones, giving you a feeling of listening to music in the open.
  • It gives a feeling of openness and a sense that the music is coming from your surroundings instead of from near your head. This makes it a popular choice for serious listeners trying to maximize their enjoyment of music while being at a noise-free location.
  • These are best for critical listening to your favourite music at your home.

  Cons:

  • These are only good for situations where there is no noise around you. As it can’t block outside noises from getting in and allow everyone around you to know your taste in music, these headphones are poor choices for public use.
  • The open-backed headphones are a bit fragile as they have no protection from moisture getting inside its sensitive electronic parts. As such, they need to be cleaned and treated with care.

Closed-Back Headphones

Closed-back over-the-head designs are completely sealed around the back and only allows from its speakers. Its design blocks a lot of outside noise as a big pad cups your ears and is covered by an insulated shell of plastic.

  Pros:

  • It’s very physical structure provides 10 decibels worth of noise reduction. Once it gets plugged into your device and the music gets turned on, these headphones do a decent job at dampening the sounds of the outside world with no help from active noise cancellation.
  • They can fill your ears with the only sound of the music as any external noise is dampened or entirely removed. This makes for an “in your head” experience of music as if you were imagining the music and hearing it in your thoughts.
  • It’s a favourite for audiophiles and listeners like audio engineers, who need to focus on the technical aspects of the music.
  • It is also a wise choice for commuting, like travelling in a car, public transport or a plane. It’s also an appropriate choice for use in public spaces like libraries, where listeners may not appreciate having to listen to your music tastes.
  • It’s an effective choice when used with a microphone like video conferences, gaming or recording music in a studio. This is because it prevents audio from leaking out and creating a disturbance. This makes them the best Bluetooth earphones with mic.

  Cons:

  • Some people prefer the natural-sounding music of open-back headphones as it doesn’t block outside noises completely.
  • Wearing closed headphones can make your ears a bit warm, making it necessary to take it off every once in a while.

What Is Impedance, and Why Is It Important for Headphones?

All headphones have some amount of inbuilt resistance, which an audio source needs to overcome to provide the signal. These sources- smartphones or PC, also have their own set of resistances. The whole set of resistances that audio signals need to overcome to ensure that the audio signals play from the headphone speakers is called impedance.

Size and shape of the drivers used, components inside the headphones etc are some of the factors influencing impedance of a particular set of headphones. All headphones use some kind of amplification to produce the power or audio signal to match its impedance, so it can run.

Headphones typically have impedance between 8-600 ohms. Most headphones on the market today have an impedance rating of 32 ohms. These are low impedance headphones, as they are easily powered by the inbuilt amplifiers inside a smartphone or a PC.

Impedance rises only for particular Bluetooth headset in India, catering to professional or audiophile-centric demand. For these users, it pays to have more independent and dedicated components inside their headphones, performing well-defined roles as things can get quite demanding. For these specialized headphones, one needs to check their impedance matching with the audio source.

Impedance matching is checking if the power of an audio source “matches” the impedance of a pair of headphones. Usually, the power needs to be 50% more than the impedance. The extra power is needed for power-demanding music, orchestral music or bass-heavy tracks. If your power source can’t match the impedance, you might need an external amplifier to do the job.

Higher impedance on headphones is also useful for DJ headphones. As the DJ deck outputs high power, these headphones are needed to handle the extra power supplied without getting its inner components blown.

What Kind of Drivers Should My Headphones Have?

A driver on headphones is a small speaker unit driving the sound down the ear canals. This electromagnetic device is necessary for any earphone/headphone as it translates electrical signals into the audio that you listen to. There are four different types of drivers as given below:

Dynamic Drivers

Most consumer-oriented headphones are powered by dynamic drivers and typically contains a neodymium magnet creating a static magnetic field. It interacts with the voice coil, which is made to oscillate to and fro the created magnetic field. This creates the sound waves that we listen to.

  Pros:

  • With such a simple mechanism, dynamic drivers are very effective as they don’t need too much power to reach high volume.
  • They also very adeptly reproduce low-end frequencies.
  • They are most affordable of all types of drivers and thus, found in most Bluetooth headset in India.
  • They are easier to power than other drivers, and many don’t require a DAC or an amp for optimal playback.
  • They are compact and lightweight.

  Cons:

  • It creates undesirable, harmonic distortions at louder volumes.
  • With very small drivers, weird distortions can be created as these speakers bounce sound off the listener’s ears at strange angles.

Planar Magnetic Drivers

Headphones using this type of drivers sport a distinct look- the ear cups are rectangular instead of the usual elliptical shape. These are typically found in over-the-ears and open-back, but some in-ears also have them. They function similarly to dynamic drivers, but instead of using a coil, it uses planar magnetic drivers. It consists of a flat, large membrane with an embedded wire pattern. The membrane is directly moved by the magnets situated in between them to create sound.

  Pros:

  • Planar magnetic drivers are used in high-end headphones to provide music of excellent quality and with relatively no distortion.
  • It also has an excellent bass response due to the combination of the large, thin diaphragm and strong electromagnetic force.

  Cons:

  • As more and larger magnets are used in these headphones, it needs more power from the audio source. This necessitates the need for external amplifiers.
  • These headphones are larger, heavier and more expensive. This makes them suitable for home use only.

Electrostatic Drivers

These are used inexpensive, rare headphones and create an electrical field using static electricity. This repels and draws its thin diaphragm to and from a pair of metal, conductive plates sandwiching it. The perforated plates force airflow,which in conjunction with the movement of the diaphragm and constantly changing electrical signal, creates sound.

  Pros:

  • It can create a virtually distortion-free sound as there is a complete absence of moving metal components.
  • It produces significantly better sound than all other headphones in the market with its life-like sound stage.

  Cons:

  • Its rarity and the effort required to make them too expensive to make for general consumers.
  • It requires bespoke amplifiers to use the headphones.
  • They are large and bulky.

Balanced Armature Drivers

Some modern in-ear headphones use balanced armature (BA) drivers where a magnetic armature rests on a pivot, rotating between the two magnets. While centred within the magnetic field, the armature experiences “no net force,” i.e. it is balanced. The small rotations caused by an electric current sent through the coil wrapped around the armature causes the diaphragm to move, creating sound waves.

  Pros:

  • Since it does not displace air to produce sound, an In-ear Monitor (IEM) doesn’t need an additional air vent. This provides better noise isolation.
  • Certain IEMs can have multiple BA drivers in addition to one dynamic driver. These headphones can be tuned for a specific frequency.
  • It has a better performance than dynamic drivers in treble frequencies.
  • It gives a more detailed sound.

Cons:

  • These are costlier than dynamic drivers.
  • These headphones need additional drivers for better bass response.

If costs were no factor, one could easily say that electrostatic drivers are the “best wireless Bluetooth earphones in India”. However, since the cost is an essential factor even for those buying high-end headphones, these drivers certainly not the “best” Dynamic headphones are versatile and cost-effective and make the most sense to buy for most people. However, audio enthusiasts can pursue their passions with the other types of drivers if they are willing to pay for their upgraded experience.

Why Does the Sensitivity of a Headphone Matter?

  1. The sensitivity of a pair of headphones describes the sound pressure level (SPL) produced when sound is reproduced by supplying a standard voltage. In simpler terms, this is a measurement in decibels per millivolt of SPL (dB/mV) of how loud a headphone sounds on the application of a specified voltage. The loudness of a pair of headphone is directly related to its sensitivity.
  2. Efficiency measured in dB/mW and sensitivity measured in dB/mV are two terms used interchangeably by manufacturers to measure the same thing. 
  3. Headphones with higher sensitivity are used for better driver performance without using too much power. However, at high volumes, they can cause damage the headphone’s drivers and the listener’s ears.
  4. Some headphones have low sensitivity and are more durable than ones with higher sensitivities though they require more power to operate. These require the use of headphone amplifiers to get better sound reproduction. Moreover, their drivers don’t get damaged when supplied with more power.
  5. We, humans, listen to a range of sounds between 60 dB and 80 dB though some might dare to listen to music at 90 dB. Most headphones have a sensitivity rating of around 100 dB.
  6. SPL is the measure of sound in decibels (dB) that humans can hear and interpret though the human ear is not as sensitive to the pressure levels as they are to different frequencies from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. Most headphones don’t need more than 1mW of power to produce high levels of SPL.

What Affects the Comfort and Fit of a Headphone?

If you are looking for “best wireless earphones India” it is important to see if the headphones on the list are comfortable and have a secure fit. Here are some things to keep in mind to ensure good fittings and a comfortable listening experience with your headphones:

  • Over-the-ear headphones are usually the most comfortable of all headphones.
  • When buying over-ears, make sure that headbands don’t cause you discomfort or dig into the top of your head.
  • Ensure that over-ear and on-ear headphones don’t have too tight clamps, which can cause pain and soreness after a few hours of usage.
  • Look for headphones with padding in the headbands. Both regular foam and memory foam padding will ensure comfortable wearing.
  • Look for headphones with comfortable and plushy ear cups. Memory foam ear cups are the most comfortable as they conform to the shape of your ear.
  • The best covering over the ear cups is mesh if you intend to use the headphones for long hours of listening. Leather is initially comfortable but becomes very hot after few hours of usage. On the other hand, mesh covering results in poor noise isolation and sound leakage.
  • Earbuds with memory foam ear tips are the best among in-ear headphones as they conform to the shape of your ear canal, providing better noise isolation and bass output.
  • Rubber tips can be comfortable if the ear tips of several shapes and sizes are provided to provide a more customized fit for the users.
  • Some in-ears can have angled nozzles for better fit and ergonomics.

What Kind of Sound Profile Should My Headphone Have?

  The following are some benefits of using a microwave oven:

  1. Microwave ovens have easy-to-use controls and a user-friendly design. They are so easy to operate even someone who has never seen one can use them for the very first time with no help from anyone else.
  2. A microwave oven can be used for a number of purposes like defrosting, reheating, cooking simple meals etc. Some can also be used for grilling and baking. Its practicality and versatility make it the answer to the question, “What type of oven would the best oven in India be?”
  3. A microwave takes very little time to cook, grill or even bake food items. It takes a maximum of only 5 minutes to heat food to high temperatures, saving you a lot of time while cooking. Most of them also come with a timer so you can leave your machine to do chores while the unit switches off after the cooking is done.
  4. A microwave oven is very easy to maintain as it is made of materials that can be easily cleaned up.
  5. A microwave makes for very healthy food as it doesn’t lose any of its nutritional value while cooking.

Active Noise Cancellation vs Passive Noise Cancellation

Passive Noise-Cancelling Technology

Passive noise cancellation uses the design of the ear cups of a headphone to block ambient noise physically. It uses extra padding support and specially designed ear cups to completely enclose the ear, thus blocking any sound. More sound is blocked with better design and more sound-blocking materials used in the ear cups. This lets the user focus on the music with less ambient sounds to distract them.

  Features

  • It works on certain frequencies of ambient sounds like high- and mid-range frequencies. Some headphones limit this frequency to 1 kHz.
  • It works well only when the ears are completely covered by the ear cups with no gaps. This depends upon the make and brand of the earphones and how it fits the user.
  • Over-ear headphones offer the best noise cancellation,while some on-ear headphones also provide it.
  • Passive noise cancellation comes with a higher price tag.
  • They require no power to work; hence it saves battery on the best Bluetooth headset
  • It works best with over-ear headphones with large cup sizes. This option is not viable for people who want to take their headphones outside their homes.

Active Noise-Cancelling Technology

Active noise cancellation (ANC) uses a microphone to monitor environmental noises. Then, it mimics the external sound with a mirror image, and these sound waves cancel each other. The anti-noise feature mixed sound and audio playback consumes battery and uses analogue or digital filters to actively cancel external noises.

  Features

  • Active noise cancelling actively cancels external noises giving you complete sound clarity and isolation from any external noises.
  • This is very helpful to listen to music on-the-go like while commuting or travelling on a plane.
  • Whether you are in an office, listening to music or on a call, it blocks sound from getting out or in, giving you the kind of privacy you need.
  • It can reduce up to 20 decibels of sound.
  • It eliminates constant background noise like the sound of an aircraft engine. This is why it is a favourite among fliers.
  • ANC does not depend on the music for noise cancellation. Therefore, you can listen to low frequency/volume songs and enjoy complete noise isolation.
  • You can turn it on or off with just the press of a button, unlike passive noise cancellation, which is constant.
  • It consumes a lot of battery of wireless headphones.

Is Frequency Response on a Pair of Headphones an Important Factor?

Frequency response tells you what range of sound a pair of headphones is capable of producing. Most headphones have frequency ranges of around 20Hz – 20000Hz as humans are capable of hearing only between this sound range.

Some headphone manufacturers routinely exaggerate their frequency-response numbers to promote their products as the best wireless earphones in India. If these ranges are somewhat larger, it improves the quality of the earphones as it makes it easier to recreate sounds on either end of the frequency range. However, beyond this, it is just a marketing ploy as you cannot tell the differences of sounds that you cannot hear.

What Other Important Features Should I Look for in the Latest Earphones?

  Bluetooth Codecs

Bluetooth compresses your device’s audio to your headset, which decodes the song before playing it in your ears. For this compression, different media players and headphones use different ‘codecs’. These are:

  1. SBC: It is the default codec for all stereo headphones and provides the lowest audio quality.
  2. AAC: It’s found in iPads and iPhones, and few Android phones. It provides better quality than SBC and is available in Apple’s Airpods and Beats headphones.
  3. AptX and aptX HD: These are owned by Qualcomm and provide more efficient compression and higher fidelity audio than SBC. Found in a few Android phones, these formats try to reduce latency and audio delay. Headphones with aptX LL have the lowest latency possible.
  4. LDAC: This is owned by Sony and allows multiple audio qualities. It comes in-built with Android 8.0 Oreo.

Any non-SBC codecs will sound equal in quality for the average users, so it is best to look for headphones that don’t use SBC. You also need to have the high quality codecs enabled in your device’s Bluetooth settings, or the connection will fall back to SBC.

  Fast Pairing

All Bluetooth headsets can suffer from connection problems, so some manufacturers have introduced ‘fast-pairing technologies. Apple has its W1 chips to connect its Airpods, while Google has made its “Fast Pair” to connect the Bluetooth headsets automatically. Only headphones supporting each technology can connect to respective devices. Some headsets also come with NFC technology to connect to any phone by simply tapping to listen.

  Software Updates

Almost every wireless headphone comes with its app. These allow access to firmware updates which is one of the most useful features offered by these apps. Some companies do have a bad habit of gate keeping access to these updates. The apps offer access to a host of other features like onboard control customization, Virtual EQ modules and “find my earbuds” etc.

  IP Rating

Water and sweat can damage headphones very badly; hence athletes and exercising enthusiasts get dedicated Bluetooth headphones with an Ingress Protection (IP) rating. A typical rating for best Bluetooth wireless earphones is IPX4, where X designates dust-resistance rating. Dust resistant rating is useful for trekkers and rock climbers as dust and chalk can damage the internal components of the headset.

  Battery Life

On-ear and over-ear headphones have longer battery life than wireless and true wireless earbuds. Wireless headphones usually provide 18 hours of playback with a single charge. Earbuds provide 8 hours of playtime, while true wireless earbuds offer the least battery life with 4-5 hours of charge. Some of these have their a charging case, which provides more charge for the earbuds. Some earbuds also support fast-charging.

  Good Microphone

Once an afterthought, many consumers today look for a headphone with a good quality microphone. Good quality gaming headsets have the best microphones but there are plenty of good options in other headsets.

Having a standard USB port is very helpful as you don’t have to carry proprietary cables or adapters while travelling.

A securable ear-loop or neckbands are incredibly useful to keep your earphones safe.

  1. Well placed usable controls on the earbuds themselves. Separate controls for volume and accepting calls should be preferred.
  2. Simple voice control can make using your headphones a lot easier.
  3. Some Bluetooth earbuds offer “find my earbuds” options in case you misplace it accidentally.

Multipoint or multi-shifting is a new feature that lets you switch between active devices like your notebook and your smartphone.

Frequently Asked Questions

You need to consider several things like your budget (the single most important factor), how you use it (portable, home use, a bit of both), an audio source (PC, TV, smartphones, mp3 player etc.), the style of music you prefer etc. All these factors influence what your ideal headphone is going to be.

The most important info on the specifications page is the type of headphones being offered. You can also check specs like cable length, kind of earpads, impedance etc. You can check for special features like IP rating if you intend to use it in the gym. The battery is also an important factor but not necessary. Other information like frequency response is not important.

Headphones come with two types of noise cancellation- active and passive. Passive noise isolation comes from fully enclosed ear cups. Active noise cancellation (ANC)uses sound waves as mirror images to cancel out ambient noises. Passive noise cancellation uses large, bulky headphone which is ideally used at home. ANC makes for a great listening experience while commuting as it completely blocks all noises.

Over-the-ear headphones are the most comfortable but need to be taken off every once in a while as it heats the ears. On-ear headphones need to have flexible clamps, so it doesn’t put too much pressure on the ears. In-ear headphones with memory foam tips have the most comfortable fit.

Wireless earbuds are the best options for a gym, since they are lightweight, don’t heat up the ears and don’t have wires that get in the way of intense exercising. You should buy earbuds with a high IP rating as water-resistance prevents it from getting damaged from sweat.

Yes. Headphones/earphones with Bluetooth 5 has backwards compatibility with Bluetooth 4.x enabled devices. However, it will not give higher performances associated with Bluetooth 5.
