There comes a time in all our lives, where we must say goodbye to old devices and find something new, something better. Headphones, for instance, tend to last for a good while, unless you buy a super cheap pair.
When your headphones do start to fail, you’ll find that the search heats up fast. There are dozens — if not hundreds — of different headphone types. The obvious include over-the-ear, in-ear buds, and your more common pods. You might even decide to walk away and avoid buying a new pair altogether.
Don’t do that. Here are five reasons why you should stick to your guns and get new headphones as soon as possible.
1. No More Wires
In the moment, one of the worst things about dealing with wired headphones are the wires. You have to wrap them under your shirt, and make sure they don’t get tangle or snag on nearby objects.
If you’re active, you have to make sure the cord is secure enough that it won’t rend your phone or media player out of your pocket. Ever snag a cord on something and watch your phone go flying? It’s not pretty.
Another aspect of this is that you can leave your device nearby, as opposed to carrying it on your person. With physical wires, the media player or phone must remain in your pocket or within a wearable holder at all times. Wireless allows you a bigger degree of freedom.
2. Audio Quality is So Much Better Now
Wireless earbuds and pods from the days of old would often sacrifice sound quality and reliability to make up for the smaller form factor. Smooth, deep bass, for example is not a feature that most earbuds would typically offer.
That’s no longer the case. Both the technology and the audio quality have been advanced considerably thanks to modern builds. It is now more than possible, it’s actually likely you’ll find a decent pair of earbuds that offer great audio feedback.
3. Earbuds Aren’t the Only Option
Hate earbuds? No problem. You can actually opt for over-the-ear and more conventional forms of headphones and still take advantage of the wireless support. In fact, we’d argue that wireless headphones — as opposed to earbuds — are the ideal way to enjoy exceptional audio experiences.
4. Battery Life is Excellent
With electronics, especially wireless ones there’s often the issue of battery life. Taking something and making it wire-free sometimes results in poor usage times, coupled with the frequent need to charge devices.
That’s not the case with the modern selection of wireless earbuds and headphones. In fact, some will last beyond a regular days usage, and come with a wireless charging case or portable power pack to boot — so that you can squeeze even more listening time out of the deal.
5. They Don’t Cost Too Much
Wireless earbuds and headphones can be expensive, as all things, but there are also plenty of inexpensive and affordable options out there too. You don’t have to break the bank or empty your wallet just to have a great listening experience.
At this point, you’re ready to get out there and find a good pair of headphones. Good luck and have fun!
