Wireless Technology

Bluetooth is unarguably the most commonly used wireless technology in headphones. It enables users to move up to 10 meters away from the device, providing a stable channel for signal transmission. Another emerging technology these days is Radio Frequency that has a larger range and coverage area than traditional bluetooth. It is mainly used with TVs and gaming desktops. Besides Bluetooth as primary technology, some modern age wireless headphones are also NFC enabled, which means is that all you need to do is bring them close and tap to an NFC enabled device to connect.

Noise Cancellation

You can also go for wireless headphones with noise cancellation. The audio delivered by noise cancellation headphones doesn’t get disrupted due to the noise or unwanted sounds from the surroundings, which is much coveted by the audiophile community across the world. Whether you are looking to buy headphones online for everyday use or looking to add to your studio collection, you cannot go wrong with noise cancellation headphones.

Audio Drivers

Audio drivers, as the name suggests, play a key role in defining the sound of an audio gear. The main function of audio drivers is converting electrical signals into audio signals. They come in a variety, such as dynamic drivers, balanced drivers, planar magnetic drivers, and electrostatic drivers. Balanced drivers are found in in-ear earphones due to their minimal space requirements. While electrostatic and planar drivers are found in loaded, over-ear headphones. In some headphones combination of such drivers are used, known as hybrid drivers.


Sensitivity is a measure of the ability of a speaker to convert electrical power applied to the speaker into an acoustical signal, resulting in clear sound without any distortion. The higher the sensitivity ( generally measured in ‘dB/mW’), the greater the efficiency of headphones and the louder sound you get for the same amount of power consumed. Higher sensitivity guarantees better driver performance without using a lot of power.
