Open Back What?

Before getting into how to choose the perfect pair of open back headphones for your needs, it could be helpful to know exactly what open back headphones are. The defining feature of open back headphones is the fact that the back part of the ear cups are open. What this means is that more sound is allowed out of the headphone.

While you might not want this if you only want to listen to the music with as few interruptions as possible, it does have the benefit of giving you a more natural sound. This is due to the fact that sounds from the environment that you are in (it could be a park, your office, the train you are taking, or your home) are allowed in.If you are someone who enjoys listening to music, but still need to be slightly cognisant of what is going on around you (if you work in research and regularly have students approaching you for assistance for example), then this is the perfect way to get the best of both worlds. Your favourite music, while not being totally blind-sided by someone coming up behind you or getting so engrossed in a particular song that you miss your stop!

Now that you know more about what open back headphones are, you need to know what to look for when going out to purchase the best open back headphones for your needs.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Pair of Open Back Headphones

Factor 1: It’s All About the Guarantee

If you decide to spend a fair amount of cash on your next pair of headphones, it is really, really important that you get a decent guarantee with your purchase. This will protect you from faulty equipment. To get this right, make sure you buy your pair of open back headphones from a trusted and authorized dealer. You should get a guarantee for about a year.

Factor 2: Wired vs. Wireless

The next factor that you should definitely consider is whether or not you would like a wireless set of open back headphones. Wired headphones are fantastic in the sense that you will always have perfect signals. However, you will also always need to be attached to your device. This can be annoying if you like to move around.On the other hand, wireless headphones give you the freedom to move around, but you may lose signal from time to time. The choice is yours. It may help to know that most wireless forms come with a wire that you can attach. This gives you the best of both worlds.

Factor 3: Cost

We live in a world where we literally do not know what could happen next. With this in mind, you need to see what your budget looks like and how much you can afford. Headphones come in a wide range of prices, so buy a pair that meets the needs of your budget.
