Which Headphones Are Better: In-Ear Or Over-Ear?

March 9, 2016 by Rachel Gulmi

There are three basic types of headphones offered in the market: in-ear headphones that sit in your ear, 0ver-ear headphones that cover your entire ear and on-ear headphones that just sit on your ear. Most people choose either in-ear or over-ear headphones so let’s stick to those two models. Which type is better?

In-Ear Headphones

Getting the obvious out of the way, in-ear headphones are very convenient to carry around since they are compact and barely take up any space. If you’re looking for noise-canceling headphones, in-ears might not be your best option. Also, if you are competing with “outside noise” you will be more inclined to raise the volume and that can be bad for your ears. If your ears over overly sensitive and you don’t want an object sitting in your ear canal, these headphones definitely aren’t for you. In terms of sound quality, in-ear headphones may be small but they can still produce a decent quality of sound.

Over-Ear Headphones

Unlike in-ear headphones, over-ears are very bulky and can be annoying to travel with. These types of headphones are not only very comfortable (because of all the padding) but have the best quality of sound. They completely cancel out any outside noise because they cover your entire ear. Since over-ear headphones produce a better quality of sound and are physically larger, they usually tend to be more expensive.

In the end, the choice is really up to you! Either type will provide you with sweet sounds.
