If wireless or cordless headphones were not enough, we now have Bluetooth headphones for the music lovers as well. The popularity for this device has been growing immensely due to their ease of use and compatibility with most other gadgets like mobiles, music players, laptops etc. Anything that has Bluetooth connectivity would work well with these headphones.
Needless to say, the sound clarity is fantastic, offering you a perfect option of personal surround sound. And gone are those days when one had ample of time to sit back and relax with your favourite music playing on. Its time for a faster approach and constantly changing schedules. Wireless headphones hence provide the best option to pursue your interest in music but at the same time helping you to finish your daily chores.
Wireless headphones can be basically divided into two kinds depending on the operating technology. The first one uses radio frequency or infrared technology for transmission of sound waves. These were the first to be introduced in the market but at times people have seen problems in their performance. Headphones using radio frequency as their mode often face intrusion from various other sources with matching frequencies leading to simultaneous transmission of voice signals from both places. Also, the radio frequency signals are not very strong as in you would usually need to stay in the line of the device or at least in the same room itself, just like in the case of your television remote controls. These problems are much reduced in a Bluetooth wireless headphone. Although the sound quality is not as superior as in the case of normal wired headphones, a Bluetooth device at least does not face any interference problems.
Bluetooth headphones are not only used at home or other places by music listeners but also as a gadget in the call centre industry nowadays. They are even seen at the music stores and other music related places where wires can become cumbersome to handle. Motorola and Sony have undoubtedly become the market leaders in this. The quality of their Bluetooth headphones is excellent as compared to cheaper models but at the same time these brands offer value for money. But there are others in the market as well like Aliph, Etymotic, Sennheiser, Nokia, Jaybird and many more. These can also be ordered online but beware of investing your money in a good quality headphones for better performance. Etymotic Bluetooth headphones are a bit heavy on your pocket but if you are seeking out for something to be compatible with your ipod, then you must go for them.
As far as my personal experience goes, my favourite piece is the Motorola Motorkor. Apart from serving all the usual purposes, this device supports athletes in constant listening to music while doing rigorous exercises or running. These have special buttons made of rubber that acts a protective coating and prevents them from getting damaged due to sweat or heat during exercises. My brother is an athlete and I whenever I can; I keep stealing his headphones without being too noisy about it. I find the sound quality to be absolutely amazing and turn out to be my daily companion for morning walks. After all, who wants to be wired all the time when you can jingle all the way to your favourite music with a pair of Bluetooth headphones?
