The different types of headphones

Headphones are a great invention. They allow you to listen to your favourite music, watch TV or even talk on the phone without disturbing others in the room. But with so many different types available, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the most common types of headphones and their benefits!


Earbuds are the smallest headphones available, and they sit inside your ear. They are perfect for listening to music on your phone or tablet when you don’t want to disturb the people around you. Of course, this convenience comes at a cost, as there is no real earpiece to allow you to block out background noise. This can be annoying if there are noisy people around you, or outside when you are cycling! However, these are the most fashionable headphones at the moment!

On-ear headphones

These sit on top of your ears rather than inside them, so they offer much better sound quality by blocking out ambient noise. They’re also great for listening to music when you’re trying to relax and unwind at home!

On-ear headphones

These are the largest type of headphones available today and cover your entire ear. They probably offer the best sound quality compared to other types of headphones, but can be very bulky after a while! (They also prevent you from hearing background noise when listening to music or watching TV programmes or horns in the street.


Earmuffs use special microphones that detect ambient noise and create an opposite sound wave to cancel it out! This means that they are very effective at blocking out the low frequencies of engine noise or other types of background noise. They are perfect for people who travel a lot and need to keep their business calls private or who want to stay immersed in their favourite movies!

Headphones with microphone

These are headphones with a built-in microphone, so you can talk on the phone or use them for online gaming without having to hold your phone in your hand. They often have buttons on the side that allow you to adjust the volume and switch between music tracks or mute the call.

Wireless headphones

Wireless headsets connect directly to your phone, allowing you to answer calls without having to hold your phone. They’re useful if you’re cycling or jogging – just put the headset on and keep moving and enjoy its bluetooth technology!

Choose yours according to your needs

There are many different types on offer in the shops today, but only one really suits your needs. If you’re not sure which type (or brand) of headphones to buy, take the time to read consumer reviews and comments. These reviews will help you understand how each feature works and what you need to consider to make the right purchase on Happy plugs.
I hope that all of this advice has given you a better idea of which headphones are right for you.
