We heard you're in the market for a new pair of headphones – you've come to the right place if you want to consider what your ideal product looks, sounds, and feels like! With so many types and features to consider, it So be be difficult to narrow it down. So, we present you with this strategy guide on how to assess the value of audio devices! There are three major factors you will want to consider when assessing which headphones are right for you – Audio Quality, Design , and Comfort.


Audio Quality

                This is generally the priority for most people, as the main function of any audio product is the audio itself! However, there are several aspects of audio quality worth considering and your preferences for each may vary depending on what you want to use yours for.

"But wait, good audio quality is just "good" in all cases, right?"

                Nope. Depending on whether you're listening to music, gaming, working out, watching TV/films/videos, or a vast array of other uses – you will want to consider things like audio tone, frequency, and surround-sound and noise -cancelling features.

                A major benefit for avid music listeners and introverts alike - noise-cancelling. If you're into diving deep into your headspace and completely cutting out all external distractions and complications, this may a feature you want to prioritize. What you're listening to Quite a relaxing experience, but when it comes to working (especially working with audio) it can be valuable to be able to hear nothing but the audio playing through your headphones. If it's clear that this feature is important To you, we recommend you Take a look at the Holo series .

               Look to headphones which deliver 7.1 surround-sound. This feature can be nice purely from a cinematic point of view, as it allows you to hear a wide range of sound and physical feeling the direction that voices and sound effects are coming from. This system Replicate sounds at an enormous range of distances and angles, allowing you to visualize exactly where the sound is spatially. Where this is especially useful is in gaming. This feature gives you an Edge in competitive games, where you'll be able to more quickly Identify and react to sound than other players. If you're going to use your headphones for competitive gaming — especially ones with large maps and sound queues occurring from every direction, such As FPS and RPG games – you will want 7.1 surround-sound.

                Tone and Frequency – Tone is generally up to user preference and is something you'll want to listen to and test for if possible. Does it sound dark or light, wet or dry, is there an echo or reverb? Of bass, mids, And treble, and is measured in Hertz (Hz). Most high-end headphones follow a standard of 20 to 20,000 Hz, as this is generally accepted as the audible frequency range. Some headphones go beyond this, with frequencies As high as over 30,000 Hz, but this excess range is not heard by most human ears. It's worth trying out headphones of varying frequency ranges to decide which gives you the best range of sound and tonal quality.



                For many people, the first thing they'll notice about a pair of headphones is not how they function or what they can do, but how they look. We are, after all, visual creatures and attracted to beautiful things. It's important to make Sure that your headphones are an expression of yourself, and you feel confident and happy wearing them. It's worth considering your personal style and how your headphones may complement that. Will you be using them primarily at home? At the office? Traveling, exercising, Gaming? How your headphones match your look and the outfits you wear could a major difference in how much you find yourself enjoying using them.


                Now About Color – to many people, this is a major expression of how they define themselves. Color and personality theory is a deep enough topic that it warrants a separate conversation – for now, we'll leave it at this: Choosing a color may Be the most personally expressive design choice you can make. If you want your headphones to highlight your style, it may be worth looking into the wide palette available from the H10 Recolors. Available in bold red, luminous blue, party purple, and several other Colors.

                Portability, Convenience, and Versatility– If you're planning to use your headphones while exercising, it's probably best to get sports earbuds which are designed to stay in-ear even during intense activity. However, if you just want to be able to be on-the-go but won’t necessarily be doing much running, biking, and jumping, you may still be able to get away with using over-the-ear headphones and receive the sound quality benefits that they provide. Convenience is a major factor for some people – if it’s not easy to access the headphones, they never get used. Mpow headphones are all designed with this in mind - even with stereo headphones, which are generally designed to be either slim fitted and easy to carry, or foldable and include carrying bags.If you want To avoid all the fuss of carrying headphones around and enjoy the simplicity of fitting your device snugly into your pocket or bag, then you may want to consider Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds. This audio device prioritizes north and portability and can be used from virtually anywhere, in any situation. Look to M10 Wireless Earbuds as a prime example.

                Finally, We Come to Comfort-which although often overlooked when browsing headphones online, is equally as important as audio quality and design. Anyone who wears their headphones for ten minutes and then gets a throbbing headache won't ever touch those headphones again. That's why it's important to make sure You are comfortable when it comes to how they fit and feel. People will all have different preferences for how headphones should fit in, on, or over your ears, as well as the adjustability of the headband, the durability, and the feel of the If you don't want to wear headphones which require adjustment and prefer to simply pick them up and fit them in your ear s, you are likely best off with wireless earbuds. If you're a fan of a soft, foamy earmuffs that accompany a big, full sound,Then you'll be more interested in over-the-ear headphones.

                Wired vs. Wireless - Very few headphones today are designed to be wired, but some may prefer the reliability and consistency of having a wire attachment. In most cases, people enjoy the freedom of going wireless, but this does come with the cost of needing To charge the batteries every so often! Which brings us to our final point...

                Battery Life - Sometimes Bluetooth headphones running out of juice and dying on you can happen as a daily occurrence. If that's the case for you, we recommend you simply replace them, as there are many headphones models on the market that should be able to last You through the day, or even for weeks depending on how often you use them! Mpow headphones are designed to last you for days of active use per full charge, with many models having a battery life of 30 hours.
