A few years ago, we would have dissuaded you from buying wireless headphones. Bluetooth connectivity problems, build quality so much, too high prices. At the same time, wireless headphones could hold a charge at most an hour or two. But today it's not like that. And we can't imagine how we could use headphones with wires!
With Bluetooth enhancements, the latest series of wireless headphones not only stay connected in any situation but sound as good as their wired counterparts.
A wireless pair of headphones is still more expensive than a similar wired model. But they provide more freedom of movement, making them ideal for going to the gym or while traveling.
What parameters should I pay attention to when buying wireless headphones? And what models are in the top 10 models today?
Who needs wireless headphones?
Wireless headphones are convenient for any situation where the user does not want to deal with wires that hold the movement, get entangled and “tie" you to a smartphone or player. Like a gym. And now that many phone manufacturers are removing the headphone jack, the wireless option is a good way to ensure compatibility with any new device.
Wireless communication no longer means bad sound. Despite the fact that the stereo Bluetooth data signal is compressed, various headphone manufacturers have discovered ways to amplify the signal. And for everyday listening, many of the latest wireless models tested by experts sound just fine.
How long to charge Bluetooth headphones?
Like any standalone device Bluetooth headphones require regular recharging. The duration of the operation depends on the battery capacity and the headphone model. There are already models on the market that work without recharging up to 20 hours. On average, most modern wireless headphones work for about 6 hours without recharging. At the same time, many models are enough 30 minute-1 hour to restore the 100% charge.
Some manufacturers include a portable charging case and a 3.5mm detachable cable to allow users to use wireless headphones with a minimum break.
Active noise canceling uses external microphones to collect and analyze ambient noise. The technology allows you to generate a reverse wave in the headphones, which suppresses foreign sounds. It used to be expensive, cumbersome technology that could not be found in wireless headphones. But everything changed a few years ago.
