Earphones Vs. Headphones

A very common question asked is; ‘which is better? headphones or earphones?’. When deciding whether to buy a pair of earphones or headphones, there are a few things to think about. for example, if you want/need really good sound quality, it will be best for you to buy headphones. If you would like something that is light weight and are portable, then earphones will be your best option.

Headphones are a pair of small speakers that are designed to be placed by the users ears, just like ear muffs. Headphones are recommended for individuals who enjoy playing games, listening to music or making music. If you enjoy good sound quality then headphones may be just right for you.
