Wireless headphones are all the rage, so we've put together a handy guide on what you need to know.
Types of Wireless Headphones
There are three main types of wireless headphones; infra-red, radio frequency and Bluetooth headphones.While infra-red headphones are rarely used nowadays but are best used alongside a TV. However, this type of connection requires an unobstructed line of between the headphones and transmitter, meaning there are limits on both the distance and angle when it comes to using them. Radio frequency works similarly but is more powerful, and Bluetooth is the best option if you want headphones without a transmitter but offers a strong connection.
However, there is an argument against using Bluetooth headphones as many believe that they offer poor sound quality. This is due to the fact that Bluetooth was not originally intended for streaming high-quality music, and as technology advances so do the level of quality of Bluetooth headphones.
Wireless headphones require their own power supply which comes in the form of either a built-in rechargeable battery or standard disposable batteries. When it comes to headphones that require a wireless transmitter, the transmitter will often double up as a charging dock. If you're considering buying Bluetooth headphones, look for a battery life of around 8-12 hours which will give you all day playback.
It's important to keep in mind that battery life is related to volume. Therefore, the louder your music, the shorter the battery will last.
Form and Size
Wireless headphones come in the three standard styles; over-ear, on-ear and in-ear. The first two look and function much the same as their wired counterparts. The latter, in-ear, differ somewhat but are similar to earphones that connect via a cord.
