Headphones For Sale In South Africa

Enjoy your music to the fullest with our superb range of headphones 

The popularity of headphones has been on a steady rise for many years. In 2018, more than a million pairs of headphones got sold each day. That number is expected to double by 2024, which shouldn’t come as a surprise. 

Nowadays, you can find so many different types of headphones for sale that you’re guaranteed to find at least several products that fit all of your preferences. 

We understand how important headsets have become in everyday life, and that’s why we offer an impressive range of products. Read on to discover what you can find in our online headphone shop.

On-Ear Headphones

If you don’t like headphones going into your ear, you’ll have the option to choose between on-ear and over-ear headphones. 

There are a few key differences with these two different types of headphones. On-ear models weight less and are easier to take with you. However, they don’t cancel out background noise as effectively as over-ear headphones. 

When it comes to on-ear headphones, we recommend the Polk Audio Ultra Focus 8000 or the JBL Club 700BT.

Over-Ear Headphones

Music fans are usually only interested in over-ear headphones as they provide the best sound quality. Nevertheless, good over-ear headphones for sale can be a bit expensive. 

If you value sound quality over compactness or other features, you should take a look at products like the JBL Live 650BTNC or Denon AHD7200.

In-Ear Headphones

In case you plan to buy earphones online, you should take a look at the in-ear headphones we have available. The most obvious advantage to in-ear headphones is portability, but they’re also very comfortable and offer great noise rejection. 

Some of the standout products in this category available in our store includes the Audiolab M-EAR 2D Earphones, as well as the Klipsch X6i.

More Headphones Options

If you’re looking for ways to incorporate headphones into your everyday life, we have some additional options available to you –

Bluetooth / wireless headphones

Wireless headphones are a great option if you don’t want to deal with wires getting tangled up or damaged. Among our selection of wireless headphones for sale, we have in-ear, on-ear, and over-ear models. 

If you’re interested in Bluetooth earphones for sale, check out the JBL Live 300TWS. When it comes to over-ear models, you should take a look at the JBL Club 950 NC.

Waterproof headphones

Waterproof headphones are an excellent option for anyone who takes part in strenuous physical activity and sweats profusely. 

Take a look at the marvellous JBL Endurance Peak waterproof in-ear headphones or the JBL Endurance Dive to see whether this is something that you need and want.

Sports headphones

While you’re training, you want to have headphones that will firmly stay on your head. Under Armour has worked with JBL to create the perfect sports headphones for sale available at our store in South Africa. You can choose between the on-ear and in-ear model. This can also be a great option for you if you’re looking for Bluetooth headphones online, as both of these models are wireless.


The main difference between in-ear headphones and earbuds is that the latter rest outside of your ear canal, while the former is inserted into your ear canal. If you’re looking for wireless earbuds, we recommend the JBL Tune 205BT.

Headphone amplifiers

In case you want to buy a top-of-the-line model of headphones, you should also consider getting an amp to maximise the sound quality. If you’re interested in this, we suggest you check out the Klipsch Heritage headphone amp available on our online shop.

Tips for choosing the perfect headphones for you

Before you decide to buy headphones online, it’s important to know how to figure out which product best suits you. 

To do this, the first thing you’ll need to determine is how you will be using the headphones. In case you plan on using them mostly when you’re jogging, you should select a model that is designed to stay in your ear even when you’re running.

You should also think about whether you should get a wired or wireless product. We have both on our online shop and are very proud of our range of wireless headphones for sale available on our website. 

Choose a trusted brand and decide on a budget before you finally choose to order headphones online.

Headphone care instructions

If you don’t take proper care of your headphones, they will likely get damaged relatively quickly. In case you spend a considerable amount on a pair of earphones, you should take some steps to ensure they remain in good shape for years to come. To do this, you can follow a few simple rules:

  • Keep your earphones in a case.
  • Don’t turn up the volume to extreme levels.
  • Don’t share your earphones with other people.
  • Don’t carry your earphones in your pocket.
  • Use a soft cloth and a dry toothbrush to gently clean your headphones.

If you follow these simple rules, you will maximize the lifespan of your headphones.
