A less expensive and effective way to improve your experience with music system is to know how in choosing headphones and switch to a nice one. With an average price of $100, a very satisfying headphone can be selected and that of course from a wide range of options.
Several things should be kept into consideration while choosing headphones. There are different types: earbuds, in-ear headphones, on-ear headphones, over-ear headphones and so on so forth. The earbuds hang in the ears and are not plugged in the ear canals unline the in-ear headphones which fit tightly and hence, prevents any outer sound. And the on-ear headphones sit on your ears without sealing them but over-ear headphones cover the ear and also seal the outer sounds.
Now, you should know that all of these types come with different inbuilt technologies and you surely have to pay extra if you want extra. For example, most earbuds aren’t much known for their sound quality however, there are some pricey earbuds that come with sound-cancellation technology. In-ear sets are considered decent with nice sound quality and average price range, yes affordable. One suggested is RHA MA450i which costs $50 and gives detailed sound quality with microphones and control buttons.
Grado SR 80i, can be another option if you have a budget of $100, and you’re okay with on-ear headsets. No they don’t prevent external sounds and yes, they do provide detailed and balanced sound. If you’re fan of heavy bass and metal songs or hip-hop numbers, you might want to go with Beats by Dr. Dre, costs a li’l more: $300 but you definitely get what you pay for.
