What follows from this?

The first thing that immediately catches the eye is certainly the big one compactness of these models, which can also be safely slipped into your pocket to tell you.

But not only compactness, because also the versatility e efficiency are intrinsic characteristics of in-ear headphones.

If you have come across this article, it means that you are looking for a model that perfectly meets your needs.

You've probably also already looked at the market and realized how many models exist in the market.

Difficult to navigate in the midst of such a quantity of headphones in ear if you do not have the basics on technical and structural characteristics.

But don't be afraid, because we are right here to help you in this choice.

How to choose the in ear headphones?

Before proceeding with the different features and parameters to consider, we also want to give you some more information about it.

The in-ear headphones are the classics headphones for music which are often supplied with the purchase of a smartphone for example.

They are extremely comfortable, and above all they have two features important:

  • greatly reduce external sounds
  • they give a really good sound quality in most cases

Despite their great general quality, however, it is important to take into account some aspects that we will soon examine.

Fortunately, this industry has had a notable growth and improvement bringing, from the first models where the quality was really low, to really models excellent that can satisfy even the most demanding people.

But now just generalize, and let's get into specifics.

In ear headphones: the different types

The first thing we want you to know is the diversity that exists between the different types of headphones in ear.

This world could be divided into two large macro groups:

  • in ear headphones with cable
  • in ear headphones without cable

The differences between the two are quite evident just by reading, but let's examine everything specifically.

Le in ear headphones with cable only the first appeared on the market for this type of headset.

They have a very good sound quality, and we can also say much better than wireless headphones.

However, you should be aware that the cable may get in your way in some cases.

Le in ear headphones without cable, on the other hand, they are really comfortable and versatile. Thanks to the absence of a connecting wire, they offer you a great comfort of movement, which is why they are perfect for those who play sports, for example.

The sound quality, however, is a bit lower, and you also have to take into account the fact that the rechargeable battery needs to be charged every 5-6 hours of use or so.

The best or worst type is not easily defined, because it all depends on your actual needs.

In ear headphones: the technical aspects

Let us now focus on the most important things of all, that is specific technical information headphones for music.

To really know if a headset is valid or not, you should try it on before purchasing.

We know very well that this is not possible, so this problem must be solved by evaluating the following parameters.

  • Frequency response (Hz). To understand this data you need to know, first of all, that the human ear can cover a range of frequencies ranging from 20 to 20.000 Hz. It is therefore obvious that, to be valid, a headphone model must at least cover this range.
  • Impedance. This term indicates the resistance that the headphones have towards the audio signal. The higher this value, the higher the quality of the final transmitted sound. But be careful because the volume of the sound is indirectly proportional to this figure.
  • Sensitivity. It is the feature that you will surely have heard of several times already since it is, in practice, the decibels. The higher this figure, the higher the volume of the transmitted sound will be.
  • External noises. As you can well imagine, the excellent sound quality is not enough if there are background noises to disturb and ruin everything. This is the reason why it is good to also consider those extra active functions to totally eliminate noises and annoyances that may derive from the external environment. Basically, however, in-ear headphones have excellent sound insulation.
  • Integrated microphone. Very useful if you also want to use the headset to answer calls. For example, when you are in a car, you could easily talk without incurring important penalties. However, check that the microphone is of good quality.
  • Rubber pads. This type of music headphones are always provided by rubber pads that fit over the earphones. Usually, in a basic package, different size pads are provided to ensure you can use the perfect one for your needs.
  • Resistance and durability. Finally check that the headphones in ear are resistant to dust and water. Especially if you will also use them during your sports training.
