well i'm back from a lazy long weekend of not blogging. but i am back now with riches of knolege back from my quest. well not really... but here's a topic- what kinda headphones suits you?
there are three styles of headphones that are commonly found. i'll go over the pros and cons of each
first there is the on bud headphones. seen plugged into ipods everywhere. not to be confused with in ear. which i'll talk about later
PRO: small, easy to carry around. you can slip em into your back pocket or purse.
inexpensive, relativley. pick up a decent pair from walmart for under 20 bucks.
CONS: personally, these headphones really really bug my ears after more than 10 min of listening.
not too great sound quality
next is the on ear headphone. not as small as in ear but not as big as over ear.
PRO: can sound really nice and offer a good amout of comfort at the same time. good for computers too.
seals out a decent amout of sound
CONS: less portable than on bud headphones. you would look a little silly walking around with these.
a bit more expensive
and finally over ear headphones. also call full headphones
PROS: very comfortable
superior sound quality. large enough speakers to crak out the lows better too.
durable. these usually have thicker wires and are made of better quality plastic or even metal.
CONS: expensive. the proffetional line of these headphones will set you back a pretty penny.
again not very portable.
if you dont need the greatest sound quality in the world, you really dont need these for everyday use
so there you have it! now choose your weapon
