Headphone / Earphone / Headset

Confused about which type of headphones to buy? I hear you! It can be infuriating trying to figure out what type to purchase. There are so many types and you might not even find the perfect pair on a search engine or online shopping site.

  • Closed-Back Headphones
  • Open-Back Headphones
  • On-Ear Headphones
  • Over-Ear Headphones
  • In-Ear Headphones
  • Earbuds
  • Bluetooth Headphones
  • Noise-Cancelling Headphones

As I’ve explored, there are different options available to consumers, such as over-the-ear headphones or earbuds. These are not the only types of headphones — in this section, I hope to share what I have learned about the different types.
