3 Things To Look For When Buying Wireless Headphones

Blog

Have you finally decided to purchase wireless headphones, but you're not sure which ones to get? It will help to know features to look for so that you can pick the right ones for your needs.

Battery Life

One of the most important features you should consider is battery life. The tricky thing is that battery life can be measured in a few different ways, so you need to consider how you use your headphones. Some over-the-ear–style headphones will have a bigger battery built into them, which offers much longer continuous battery life so you can listen uninterrupted. Meanwhile, earbud-style headphones will have a much shorter battery life but often offer a charging case that allows you to extend the lifespan of the batteries with short charges. 

If you primarily use your wireless headphones in short bursts, such as when commuting or exercising, then the earbud style headphones can provide enough battery life. If you are the type of person that uses headphones all day long, such as when traveling long distances, then you may need longer continuous battery life. 

Controls

Bluetooth headphones can have many different ways to control your music while you are wearing them. Earbud-style headphones may have a simple button that allows you to pause, play, or skip tracks, or they may give you full control through using a digital assistant. Over-the-ear style headphones can offer more controls on the headphones themselves, with the ability to control the volume as well with a simple volume rocker. 

Another thing to consider is if you have a smart watch and can then control the headphones from that device. This may make up for the lack of controls on the headphones, especially if they are lacking in that area. Decide on how much control you need while you are wearing the headphones to determine if the option you are considering will work for you.

Design Style

Design style is a key factor when using any type of headphones, which often comes down to the style that you get. Some people just don't like earbuds, while others love them. You may need the over-the-ear style headphones because they help block out sound and stay in place at all times. Some headphones even clip on to the ear, so they act like earbuds but manage to stay in place while exercising. You'll know from your personal experience what style of headphones you will need to offer the best experience.
