A Complete Guide to AM/FM Headphones


It sounds like a blast from the past to talk about radio as a way of entertainment today, but considering it was the technology that kept our grandparents (and to some extent our parents) informed of the latest news, it’s fair to say that it’s not that ancient of technology just yet. What’s more, it seems that there are a lot of people today who still enjoy kicking it old school and are tuning in to their favourite radio stations. The truth is, some people just like to listen to the radio rather than carry around their own music on an MP3 player. This way they stay informed about what’s happening around the world and enjoy a wide variety of music.

This may come as a surprise to some millennials, but even every smart-phone nowadays comes equipped with its own radio app. It could be put to use with the help of the antenna that connects your phone to the mobile network. Now although for most people this is practically common knowledge, here’s something that might not be. – Did you know that there is a special type of Am Fm earmuffs that are specifically designed for listening to the radio? They are basically stand-alone radio tuners and are capable of providing you with up to 10 hours of radio use. Some radio headsets go as far as up to 100 hours of playback on a full charge.

Headphone Styles

There are various different types and models of Am Fm earmuffs today. Their difference in style is due to their intended use.

– Earbud headphones usually come along with your audio device. They are the cheapest option on the list and most light-weight. They are designed for the on-the-go music listeners, and people who stay more active throughout the day.

– In-ear headphones or IEMs are a bit more expensive, but their sound quality is much richer. This is due to their inbuilt powerful drivers which produce a rich-bass. They sit snugly on the inside of your ear canal and are more effective in blocking noise from your surroundings.

– On-ear headphones are known for their closed-back design and good noise isolation. They are smaller in size and very manageable, able to provide great sound and they look very stylish.

– Full-size also known as over-ear headphones are best on the list for both sound quality and noise cancellation. The inbuilt drivers on these types of headphones are much bigger and more powerful than the previous models. This pair is perfect for a work environment as they let you work without any distractions.

The style of headphones you pick out can make or break your overall music experience. Good quality headphones both sound and build wise can give you many hours of fun. Finally, it all comes down to how you intend to use your headphones (running, working, walking around the house) and this is why you should chose your style accordingly. Earbud headphones are great if you want to listen to music while running and the bigger models such as the over-ear headphones are perfect for busy environments such as workplaces.
