Over-Ear Headphones

For music aficionados, finding the best headphones to deliver high-quality sound is a must. Over-the-ear headphones feature two earpieces that are joined by a center band. This band is placed over the head to keep them in place. Commonly referred to as full-sized headphones, these audio devices have thick pads that fit over the entire ear for comfort and to help drown out background noise. Many models can also be used to take and receive phone calls when connected to a cell phone.

Reasons to Purchase Over-the-Ear Headphones
The biggest reason to purchase any headphones is the ability to listen to music without disturbing others. The large size of this audio equipment provides greater comfort to the user when listening for long periods, and they are much harder to lose due to their size. Bigger headphones tend to provide better base, which is ideal for those who appreciate a deeper sound,

Aside from size, over-the-ear headphones stay securely on the ear. When not in use, they can hang around the neck out of the way, so users don't have to worry about carrying them when traveling.

Considering the Options for Headphones
Headphones come in a wide variety of colors and sizes to fit nearly anyone's ears. Child-sized headphones are perfect for young children and most often have volume limiters to protect the ears. Some models fold into a compact size and come with a carrying bag that fits inside a suitcase or backpack. Choose those with built-in equalizers to deliver balanced sound; most have volume controls either on the headphones themselves or on the cord connecting to a media device.

Aside from listening to music, some headphones are equipped with a microphone, so users can take calls or use the device for conference calls or video chats. The microphone either folds out of the way when not in use or it can be removed for convenience.

Do Bluetooth Headphones Provide the Same Quality as Wired Headphones?
With a good, strong signal, wireless Bluetooth headphones produce a high-quality sound that is comparable to wired models.

What is the Difference Between Over-the-Ear and In-Ear Headphones?
The biggest difference between over the ear headphones and in-ear headphones is over the ear sits on top of the ear while the in-ear fits snugly inside of the ear. Also referred to as earbuds, in-ear headphones can offer noise cancellation benefits better than over ear ones, while over-ear designs tend to deliver more power.

How Long Does it Take to Charge Bluetooth Headphones?
The typical time it takes to charge a pair of Bluetooth over the ear headphones is around 3 hours. Most headphones connect to a charging block or computer using a standard mini or micro USB charger. Once fully charged, most headphones have a battery life of between 8 to 12 hours depending on how loud you like to listen to music. The louder the music, the shorter the battery life will be.
