Choosing the right earbuds or wireless headphones

Wireless headphones are an ideal accessory for not having to worry about annoying cables. They offer much more freedom and flexibility when traveling, exercising or commuting. In addition, a good pair of wireless headphones can dramatically improve your music experience.

The importance of connectivity

A true wireless headset should have a good Bluetooth chip to ensure solid connectivity. Cheap wireless earbuds use poor quality Bluetooth chips that introduce significant delay in audio transmission. These delays are more noticeable when watching videos or playing games on your smartphone. Also, cheap models often use poor quality microphones. Making or receiving calls through such headphones can be a real hassle.

Beware of codecs

A codec determines how audio is transmitted over Bluetooth from the source to your wireless headphones. It encodes and decodes digital audio signals for faster, more reliable wireless transmission. Most inexpensive wireless headphones only support the SBC (low-complexity sub-band) codec, which splits frequencies into multiple bands and encodes them separately. This process takes time to transfer the data, resulting in a delay in the audio transfer. These headphones also don’t support high bitrates, and high-resolution music often sounds flat on them. The lag is most noticeable in games or in videos where the characters’ voices lag behind the video.

A good pair of wireless headphones will support codecs like aptX, aptX HD, and LDAC 900. These codecs are much better than SBC codecs due to their low latency and faster bitrate support. However, these codecs are still lossy, which means they still lose some audio quality. If you’re using an Apple device, consider wireless headphones with Apple’s proprietary Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) codec. It offers excellent audio quality and supports Hi-Res audio playback.

Active noise cancellation is becoming more and more accessible

The noise canceling feature was limited to a few wired headphones until a few years ago. Many wireless headphones today offer this feature. This means music volume can be reduced to a comfortable and comfortable level while isolating the noise around you.

Most noise-cancelling headphones also have a “transparency” feature that lets you hear what people are saying around you with a simple press, without having to take off the headphones. Noise-cancelling your wireless headphones improves the audio experience, but it can also drain your battery quickly.
