How-To: Usage hints and care instructions for Bluetooth headphones

Know how to handle them well for long-lasting use!

1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for Bluetooth headphones

1.1 Type

The small loudspeaker drivers that we wore on or around on the head or over the ears has a large family consisting of headphones, earphones, earbuds, headsets. Let's know about them more in this feature.

Headphones: Normally, a headphone is something that has two large speakers like structure that fits on your ears. These are generally worn around the head.

Headsets: These are also headphones but with the addition of an attached microphone. So, if there is no microphone then it becomes a headphone.

Earphones: These are inserted into the ear. That is why the name, earphones. While headphones are to be worn over the head and outside your ear, the earphones fit inside your ear. They are also known as in-ear headphones.

Earbuds: Earbuds are similar to earphones. However, they are wireless, don’t have any cushions and fit outside the ear canal in contrast to earphones.

Majorly headphones are divided into the following types:

● Closed-back: If you want to keep working on your applications but don’t want any other peripheral noise, then these are a great type of headphones. You get to hear only the sounds you want to hear. Regardless of your environment, these closed-in types of headphones will keep the external noise away, thus providing you with an isolated audio experience. If you are the person who loves to hear every minute details of the sound and fully immersed yourself into the audio experience, then it is the type for you.

One can listen to all the notes in the instruments with the help of these headphones. And that’s why many musicians, for their recording studios, prefer these types. They have very minimal noise leakage making minimal sound go into the surrounding. These types of features are much suitable for singers. You can listen to your music in a private space without disturbing others.

They come in two types— the over-ear style earphones and smaller on-ear earphones that reside on the top of your ear. Their designs are somewhat bulkier than other types and are worn over the head. But folks don’t mind the size as the quality it provides is fantastic for many applications.

Some finest closed-back earphones are available in the market are Sennheiser HD 280, Beyerdynamic T5p, Audio-Technica ATH-M50x, OPPO PM3, AKG K550, Shure SRH440 Sony MDR7506, and V-MODA Crossfade M-100.

Open back: As opposed to the closed-in, these headphones have open ear cups, thus letting some noise escape into the surrounding.

With closed-back type, one feels like they are listening to the sound in an isolated space, whereas with open-back headphones one feels like they are listening to the sound from the speakers put in a closed room. They are even responsible for little noise leakage. One might think why would somebody prefer these headphones over other types? The people who are working on the editing of audio tracks need them. In closed-back headphones, there’s this build-up of specific frequencies. Audio engineers don’t want that, that’s why they find it convenient to use this type.

The people who are into mixing and mastering require much accuracy and only flat sound. It gives the chances of building perfection with their work. Some folks prefer listening to the lower frequencies which are avoided by the ear cups of closed-back headphones. Even though they aren’t working in a studio, not performing any mixing and mastering, some audiophiles prefer this kind of headphones as they can hear what the creator wanted them to listen to.

If you are a private person and don't want people to hear your songs or podcasts, so this type is not suitable. You can prefer this type if you are not concerned about the sounds coming from your surrounding.

They apply less pressure on your head; thus, they feel much more comfortable for your long journey. They come in a smaller on-ear style as well as an over-the-ear style.

In-ear: The types of headphones we use are usually in-ears. They are easy to carry, give fantastic sound quality, and are a perfect fit for daily commuting. But prolonged use of these can hurt your ears.

On-ear:These fit on the brink of your ears not covering them entirely. If you are buying these, you should be aware that your playlist isn't going to be a private affair. Due to the on-ear design, people close to you can also hear the sound if you play it at full volume.

Over-ears: These are considered as one of the most comfortable and healthy ones to use. They fit well over your ears, and the head belt is very convenient. Plus it has a good sound isolation quality. The only issue with these is you cannot really carry them around easily or stash them in a small bag.

Our recommendation: Select the one that suits you the best for your daily use!

1.2 Sound-quality and Stability

Suppose you have used Bluetooth headphones before then you will know the delay and disconnection making the connection unstable. Usually, this happens when the Bluetooth has poor stability. So the SIG, which is the Bluetooth Official Organization, announced that all the Bluetooth that are the 4.1 versions, would soon be out of style. So now all your mainstream headphones are 4.2 and 5 version. Now, of course, Bluetooth 5 has less latency than 4.2 along with a better reach and power saving mode!

Note: 4.1 version is still available in the markets and is an upgradable version.

Our recommendation: Check the Bluetooth version before buying. The higher the make, the better the sound quality and stability!

1.3 Noise Reduction

When it comes to noise reduction, there are two types of noise; a passive one and an active one.

Passive noise cancellation: These blocks sound waves coming from your surrounding environment using isolating materials like foam. So just like when you wear earmuffs to stop hearing outside noise!

Active noise cancellation: These also block outside noise with materials, however they up the game by a notch. This technology mimics the outside sound waves and generates a sound wave that is its mirror image. This wat these mirrored sound waves cancel the original ones and the vice-versa.

Note: But you do not need active noise cancellation for your daily use since headphones with this are rare.

1.4 Frequency Range

However, this part gets a little technical when you are trying to select a Bluetooth headphone. You will also have to consider the sensitivity of your product, often termed as 'Receiver Sensitivity'. So when you can hear the smallest sound made on your device through your Bluetooth headphones, it means that they are highly sensitive.

The minimum range of sensitivity of headphones is expected to be between -70 dBm (decibel-milliwatts) and -82 dBm. This will be mentioned in many product descriptions. So the higher the number, the better!

1.5 Range

Range determines the distance of connectivity typically. This can be generally measured in feet. This helps in testing how far can you go away from your device before the Bluetooth starts to crackle and break-up! In technical language, this is also known as 'Path Loss'. Any obstacles in your way, like walls or windows that block-out or reduces the signal strength are known as 'attenuators'. This is also why you lose your WiFi signal over some distance.

1.6 Charge and Battery

The ratio of charging hours versus battery power is always an essential consideration for cordless devices. You need to find yourself a pair that has a quick charge and long battery life. This is typically broken up in music time and calls time.

1.7 Design and Comfort

Last but not least, consider the design and support when you buy a new pair of Bluetooth headphones. You should select headphones that fit well or earphones that hold in your ear canal without slipping off. This becomes a crucial feature if you wear them while exercising because a headphone without a good hold will keep falling.

Our recommendation: Select the one that serves your needs the best. If you want a good pair that stays, try those that have length adjustments or clips that hang them around your ear!

1.8 Water and Sweat Resistant

No one wants sloppy, sweaty headphones after a good gym session. Which is why this feature is also one of the most sought after. If you are a regular gym-goer and shed a profuse amount of sweat, go for headphones that have a minimum of IPX4 water resistance and above!
