Now in the age of active development of digital technologies we surround ourselves with a huge number of various electronic devices that are designed, one way or another, to make our life better and more comfortable. However, we also want to make all this as simple and convenient as possible, even the notion of a "digital house" has emerged, in which all devices and gadgets will be integrated into one whole.
Wireless technologies began to come to the fore. They have long been used for data transfer - Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and now engineers have started talking about the possibility of getting rid of other wires, in the near future it will be possible to charge mobile phones without any wires or anything else.
However, now we can test wireless headphones. They have already been sold for a long time, manufacturers are releasing various models that are constantly being improved, so no one is surprised at such a gadget, just like wireless mice and keyboards.
The idea to use such headphones is attractive enough, because it is with wires that all the time there is the most problems. Jokes about the intricate wires of headphones no longer surprise anyone. So what are the disadvantages and advantages of wireless headphones?
Types of headphones
As for the headphones for the player, then you need to make clarifications. Since for these purposes the plug-in headphones are most often used, with the acquisition of a suitable wireless pair there will be problems, because the manufacturers practically do not release them. Most often you can find overhead or monitor headphones for home use, for example, at the computer.
Monitor wireless headphones can also be open and closed, not letting any sounds from outside. Such models are considered optimal for listening to music and simply working at the computer, because they give a higher sound quality, but their ears do not get very tired. Although experts say that open wireless headphones can give a more natural sound, because in closed cases sometimes there is a resonance effect.
The last classification is the division into the level of headphones: professional, amateur or medium. Naturally, professional headphones can give a better sound, but their cost is much higher. Although some manufacturers can mislead users by offering supposedly Hi-Fi products for a high fee, but in fact they are ordinary mid-range headphones.
The main advantage of such headphones is the complete freedom of movement around the room, the wires will not be confused now, etc. However, the absence of wires raises another problem - the need for regular charging. In addition, the final sound quality can be noticeably worse than similar wired headphones. Therefore, many people say that if you need high-quality headphones for listening to music, then it's better to take traditional ones.
In fact, wireless headphones are a bluetooth headset for a computer. Although in some cases it can use the radio channel for connection. Now the bulk of wireless devices use a bluetooth connection because of the great popularity of this standard. Although the radio headphones can provide a longer range. But sometimes there are problems. Connecting the bluetooth headset to the computer is easy and without any problems, also this connection is protected from interference, and headphones themselves can be connected to a mobile phone, which makes them more versatile. Of the most interesting manufacturers worth noting Sennheiser (segment leader), Philips and some models of Panasonic. However, these companies have long been engaged in the production of various high-quality audio equipment.
