7 Best on-ear headphones 2016
1. Bose SoundTrue On-Ear – Check Best Deals
Bose’ SoundTrue are a very light and comfortable pair of on-ear headphones that resembles with Bose’ previous model – OE2i headphones. And by the way, OE2i is thought to be one of the most comfortable headphones out there. In fact, it’s one of the lightest + compact headphones and easily folds into fit into a small bag. Its earcups are flexible whereas its headband has fair grip. By no means, they are headphones you want to put on during workout. I am saying that because, even it is light, SoundTrue on-ear’ headband’s inner-side (the one that meet with your top-hairs) is silky, rather than being rubbery. That’s why it is prone to moving.
On features, this headphone has a detachable cable that has a 3-button handsfree remote inside it. For Android and Windows Phone users, there isn’t much to talk about because all of that remote features won’t surely work on there phones. For iPhone users: don’t worry. But in both cases, you can use it to answer your phone calls.
In case you don’t know, there are two things Bose is known for: Noise Cancellation and Comfort. While former is plenty, Noise cancellation is only average at best. But since it is on-ear headphone, it isn’t suppose to provide you A-class Noise cancellation either. Bose SoundLink On-Ear can be good option if want to go wireless and have Noise Cancellation.
Its sound is balanced and kinda Open. It also has the tendency to blur mids and highs. Like Noise cancellation, its Sound Quality doesn’t have any x-factor too. But its not that bad too. In fact, if sound quality could match its comfort level, then this would be my #1 recommendation to you. But even with this sound, it is a pretty good option for anyone who is looking for a mid-priced on-ear headphone.
2. Beyerdynamic DTX 350p – Best Affordable On Ear Headphone
There is a plethora of headphones, of any type, that are costlier than 150 bucks. Well, I am not against any of them. But the problem is that, people usually consider that there isn’t any good headphone they can buy under 100 or even 50 bucks. To some extent, their point is valid. There are a very fewww headphones, let alone on ear ones, that are affordable, comfortable to wear and sound good at the same time. Beyerdynamic DTX 350p is probably best of them.
There is no awesome about its material since it is all plastic. One advantage is that plastic is that you will get a pretty lightweight headphone — weighing only 130 grams approx. Its earcups are soft-leather made and have decent grip to offer a good amount of noise isolation — something not very common among on ear headphones. Despite that, it can leak some music out if you listen at higher volumes. These headphones can fold too, to accommodate in small places.
Its sound quality may not compete with the likes of B&O H2b, but within its price range it has unarguably the best sound quality. DTX 350p emphasis on more bass and clarity than any of its peers in given price tag.[junkie-button url=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MRUQ1OK/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00MRUQ1OK&linkCode=as2&tag=audio016-20&linkId=4VURVPDV2OEZQXV7″ rel=”nofollow” style=”green” size=”large” type=”square” target=”_blank”] Buy On 49% Discount From Amazon [/junkie-button]
