Shopping for Headphones
Best Buy makes shopping for headphones easy with a wide variety of types and styles to choose from. Whether you're looking for a new pair to wear at work, the gym, or while gaming at home, you'll find the right headphones for you. Some types even offer special features, like noise-canceling headphones and sound-isolating headphones.
Earphones can be split into two categories. In-ear monitors fit snuggly inside each ear canal and the majority of sports headphones fall under this category. Earbuds feature small drivers that rest on the ridge of your outer ear and usually deliver lower fidelity and isolation than other types of headphones, but they are inexpensive. Over-ear headphones, also known as "around-ear" or "full-size" headphones have cushioned earcups that enclose the ears, while on-ear headphones have cushions that sit on the outer ear.
Find the Right Headphones for Your Lifestyle
Sports headphones come in a variety of lightweight in-ear and on-ear designs to ensure that your headphones stay put. Some are made with water-resistant materials to protect against sweat and the elements. Wireless headphones are great for sports and outdoor use since they allow you to move freely without worrying about your wire getting tangled.
Headphones for travel come in many different styles. Some are foldable, making them easy to pack in your bag, and wireless earbuds are especially portable. Noise-canceling or sound-isolating headphones allow you to listen to your music, podcasts and audiobooks without distraction.
Headphones for kids come in fun colors and designs that include familiar characters, plus they're designed to be extra-durable and are sized just right for kids. Some headphones for kids feature volume-limiting circuitry to keep them at a safe listening level.
