Types of Headphones
Circumaural headphones have pads that go around the ears, usually very large and very comfortable. This is the type commonly used in recording studios and among audio enthusiasts.
Supra-aural headphones are much like circumaural, only the pads go on top of the ear, making them lighter and smaller. They may also have basic, "open" pads. (i.e. Sennheiser PX100)
Earbuds or earphones are headphones of a smaller size that are placed directly outside of the ear canal, but without fully enveloping it. They are generally inexpensive and are favored for their portability and convenience. However, due to their inability to provide isolation, they are not capable of delivering the same dynamic range offered by many full-sized headphones and canalphones for a given volume level. As a result, they are often used at higher volumes in order to drown out noise from the user's surroundings, which increases the risk of hearing-loss.
Bluetooth mobile headsets offer the convenience of hands free communication using mobile phone devices. They are lightweight, have great sound quality, and are affordable.
Boomset headphones add a microphone on a boom to the headphone and are typically used for sporting events, electronic news gathering, and recording/broadcast studios.
DJ/Club headphones typically feature a tailored frequency response and rugged design and feature-set specifically suited for the working DJ. Added bass response, loud output, and unique design are the trademark of these headphones.
Active noise-canceling headphones use advanced technology to "listen" to the ambient sound environment around the user and reduce or eliminate this noise. These headphones are often used by airplane travelers and people who work in noisy environments.
Street/Sport headphones offer stylish and trendy designs in addition to rugged construction for use in personal day-to-day listening or while exercising.
Wireless listening systems give users the freedom to enjoy music, TV, or movies while not being tethered to a cord and not disturbing others.
