Choosing a headphone deal

It goes without saying the best headphone deal is at a great value price you can afford, but you can’t determine which one that is without first deciding what you want from your headphones. With such a huge variety meeting different needs, zero in on exactly what you want and need from your pair and go from there. But what elements are there to consider?

First things first, where and what will you be using them for? If you’re keen on fitness and enjoy listening to music or a podcast whilst you workout, you want something that is comfortable and secure. Going truly wireless is likely the way to go, avoiding tugging on a wire when you’re mid-run. A cheaper alternative might be semi-wireless equivalents, connecting via Bluetooth to your phone with a wire simply linking the buds behind your neck.

If you like to listen to music or binge-watch on Netflix during your commute, noise cancelling technologies are a must for receiving quality sound from your headphones and blocking out the noisy hub-bub of the morning. Not looking to splash out on a pair of all-encompassing headphones? In-ear earphones might be a better shout for better noise isolation.

After all that you’ll want to think about price. As a rule of thumb headphones are an area where you get what you pay for, so if you care about audio quality it’s always worth investing a little bit more. The difference between some £70 and £100 sets is palpable.
