What types of headphones are there?
Earbuds
Earbuds sit outside of your ear canal. Featuring compact, lightweight designs, earbuds are extremely portable and come at affordable prices.
In-ear headphones
In-ear headphones use foam or rubber tips that fit snugly inside your ear canal. This construction passively blocks out background noise, making in-ear headphones ideal for travel or noisy environments. Sport headphones usually fall in this category, with many models boasting ear clips for a secure fit, or a behind-the-neck band that won't get in the way.
On-ear headphones
Equipped with cushioned ear cups, on-ear headphones rest on top of your outer ears. They offer excellent sound quality with a design that won't overheat your ears. Some types can even be folded up to make portability a breeze.
Over-ear headphones
Over-ear headphones fully enclose your ears with cushioned ear cups. This creates a seal against your head to effectively minimize external noise. Outfitted with large drivers, over-ear headphones are typically considered the best for sound quality, making them appealing to music enthusiasts and audiophiles.
What features should I look for in headphones?
Wireless
If you want to say goodbye to tangled cords and move around freely, look into wireless headphones. Bluetooth technology wirelessly connects the earphones to your compatible music player, allowing you to stream tunes without being tethered to a device.
Active noise cancelling
Listen in uninterrupted bliss on airplanes, trains, and in busy urban areas with active noise-cancelling earphones. This battery-powered technology uses integrated microphones and electronic circuitry to produce an "anti-noise" signal to prevent external noise from coming in.
Built-in microphone and controls
Many headphones come with a convenient in-line microphone and remote. The built-in mic lets you answer calls without having to reach for your phone, while the remote makes it easy to control volume, mute sound, or skip tracks.
What types of portable speakers should I consider?
USB charging
Nothing is worse than a dead smartphone. That's why some wireless speakers come equipped with a USB port so you can use the speaker's internal battery to charge up your smartphone, tablet, and other portable devices.
Pair with other speakers
 If you need sound to travel or want to amplify your listening experience, opt for wireless speakers that can pair directly with other ones.
