Headphones and Earphones: What are you looking for?
Buying a pair of headphones or earphones is a complex operation for a number of reasons that we will go straight to list. First of all, there are substantial differences (and often they are subjective): the headphones are suitable for those who love a sound, relax in front of a film or listen to good music. Earphones are instead often preferred by commuters in trams, metro and buses, or for those who love sports like jogging, although obviously this is not always the case.
Unless you are simply looking for cheap headphones then, what to buy will depend on you and your needs. Instead, it will be our job to help you purchase the best headphones and earphones for value for money!

- Bluetooth earphones : in this section, we will deal with earphones, mostly in-ear (to be inserted into the ear), equipped with Bluetooth connection. They are ideal for that seeking comfort and style. They will often also be equipped with a microphone but obviously need to be periodically recharged.
- Gaming headphones : if you are a gamer – console or PC that is – this headphones are perfect for low latency and very often they also integrate a microphone to talk in online chats. Aesthetically they are very aggressive, often with LED. They can be connected either via audio jack or via USB.
- Sports earphones and headphones : sportsmen need particularly comfortable and light headphones, possibly resistant to rain and sweat. In most cases, this is wireless headphones tied by a wire to be easily carried around the neck.
