Boasting models from well-known and popular brands such as Sony, JVC and Bose you'll have a fantastic selection to explore.
Discovering the perfect pair of headphones
The original personal listening device, large headphones are still popular to this day, thanks to their comfortable padding, which makes them suitable for hours of listening at a time. In this OnBuy category you’ll find on-ear headphones and over-ear headphones from some of the top manufacturers. As you might expect, over-ear headphones encompass your whole ear, providing a little bit of isolation from other noises around you, while on-ear headphones sit over your ear, keeping you more in touch with your surroundings.
Large headphones are the best choice for audiophiles seeking the purest possible tone. With the space for larger drivers than are possible in earphones, and open-back designs that create a wide soundstage and minimise distortion, you can pick up a set of monitor headphones that precisely replicate your favourite songs. You can take these headphones on the go, but they’re best used at home for listening to music when you don’t want to bother anyone else with your tunes. Pair these high-end headphones with a quality Hi-Fi system and you’ll be transported to musical nirvana!
Another common reason for picking headphones over earphones is the abundance of active noise cancelling headphones. These devices use microphones to pick up background noise and neutralize it with specially generated soundwaves. These sorts of headphones are fantastic for commutes, plane journeys and anywhere else background noise is a bother. Many of these noise cancelling headphones are wireless, giving you true freedom. For more freedom, why not check out our impressive online selection of Bluetooth speakers? Wireless, compact, and portable, these gadgets are perfect for keeping the party popping! Alternatively, we also boast a range of quality speaker systems - ideal for man caves, full home entertainment setups, and studios.
Earphones and earbuds
Headphones may have come first, but they’re no longer the most popular kind of portable listening device. That title falls to the humble earphone, which grows smaller and more sophisticated every year. The biggest draw to these smallest of personal speakers is their portability. You don’t have to worry about carrying cases or weight when they slip into your pocket!
You’ll find an equal abundance of wired and wireless earphones and earbuds in this collection. Wired earphones are the cheapest way to listen to music, and are fantastic for those on a budget. Wireless earbuds are fantastic for sports, as there’s nothing to get in the way when you work out, and they’ll stay in your ears much easier than traditional headphones, particularly with the addition of earhooks.
You can even find true wireless earbuds in this range. The newest development in wireless headphone technology, true wireless earbuds and earphones are completely independent from each other, with no wire connecting the two. These ultra sleek earbuds offer great connectivity, and some of them come with other high tech benefits, like active noise cancellation.
