Over-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.

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.
