Wired Or Wireless Headsets: What Is The Best Option
When choosing a headset you have to take into account different aspects beyond its appeal; as what use we are going to give them and what is our budget. But also, as we taught you a couple of weeks ago, to choose good headphones you have to pay attention to specifications such as their frequency or their sensitivity.
We also saw that depending on the use that we are going to give them, whether to go running, listen to music or enjoy a good movie, we will decant by one or another headset either in ear , on ear or over ear .
But, in addition, each of these headsets can be connected to our device wirelessly – the most common connection is by bluetooth – or cable. What are the disadvantages of each type of connection?
Stereo Bluetooth Headphones for Higher Sound Quality
Although since the wireless connections between headsets and devices have been tested it is becoming more unusual to find wired headsets, the truth is that their sound quality is virtually unmatched by any bluetooth headset.
The wired connection ensures interference-free sound , so many of the high-end headphones on the market maintain this type of connection. In addition, in wireless headsets we can find continuous and annoying background noise that is only imperceptible in the highest quality models.
Within the different types of cable, we can find spiral cables and smooth cables whose virtues in terms of sound transmission are identical. Of course, spiral corded headphones are much more practical as they allow easy storage.
One of the biggest defects of this type of headphones is that they are exposed to cable breaks so we should make sure that, if that happens, we can replace the cable.
Not only depends on the quality of the cable the correct transmission of sound; but also of the connector used for it . Within the high quality Jack connectors, we find gold plated as they improve the conduction properties and, therefore, transmission.
If you are looking for headphones to listen to music and enjoy the best surround sound, no doubt, cable headphones are the best choice.
