Caring For Your Wireless Headset

Wireless headphones can provide a number of conveniences. No more tangled cords. And you don’t have to be tethered to your device. They provide freedoms that wired headphones do not. To increase the longevity of your wireless headphones it makes sense to take good care of them. Here are a few tips and ideas to care for your wireless headphones. #1 Protection If you plan on traveling with your wireless headphones consider buying a carrying case. The case will not only protect them from bumps and dings which can affect sound quality, but it can also keep the speaker portion free from dust and debris. It’s easy to tear the protective padding that covers earphone speakers. A carrying case can help prevent tears and snags. #2 Dust and Debris If you’re using ear buds, then you’ll want to clean them on a regular basis. Depending on your personal needs, you may want to clean your ear buds daily. Use a gentle cloth and basic warm soapy water to clean your ear buds. Never dunk them in...

In Ear or Over-Ear? Getting the Best Noise Cancelling Headphones

Noise cancellation technology was actually introduced in the 1950s. It was created to help aviators reduce the sound of engines, propellers, and wind noise. It was quickly adopted by the aviation industry as a means to help passengers enjoy a more pleasant flying experience. By the 1990’s it reached the consumer market. This rapid expansion into the consumer market started as an elite product. The original noise cancellation headphones were quite expensive, and to be honest, the sound quality was questionable. Noise cancellation headphones work by creating a sound that opposes the outside ambient noise. The two cancel each other out and you only hear what you’re meant to hear. As demand for noise canceling headphones increased and they became more popular, more and more options became available. The price decreased and the sound quality increased. Today you can find noise canceling headphones in a variety of styles, shapes, price points, and quality levels. There really is something for ever...

 


The Real And Not-So-Real Dangers of Noise Cancelling Headphones

Noise canceling headphones offer a number of benefits. They block outside noise from interfering with your listening. In many cases this means you can listen at a lower volume because the sound in your headphones doesn’t have to compete with outside noise. However, this very same benefit can also be dangerous. Noise canceling headphones work in two basic ways. They can actively play noise that produces an opposite sound to the ambient noise. They can also block noise passively by physically preventing outside sound to reach your ears. Pedestrian Dangers Often the time that you want to wear noise canceling headphones is often the most dangerous. If you wear them when you’re out and about, you may miss warnings. For example, if you’re wearing noise canceling headphones while walking you can easily miss the sounds of a car honking or a bicycle coming up quickly behind you. Driving Dangers Similar to walking when wearing headphones, there are similar dangers. If you’re using noi...

Wireless Headphones? How Does That Work?

Wireless technology seems to be taking over the world. It is certainly convenient. It eliminates the complicated and often unsightly mess of cords and wires. It also provides you with a bit of freedom. You no longer have to be tethered to your device to hear the audio. But how exactly does this technology work? Three Technologies that Work Differently First it’s important to know that there are three basic wireless technologies. They include infrared, radio frequency and Bluetooth. Bluetooth actually uses radio frequency but it uses it in a slightly different manner. Let’s take a look at each. Radio Frequency Wireless headphones that use radio frequency require a transmitter. This transmitter is plugged into a power supply. It also must be connected to your device. For example, if you want to listen to your television with wireless headphones your base unit will need to be connected to your television. The receiver sends electric signals to the base unit.

Review: Bose QuietComfort15 Acoustic Noise Canceling Headphones
