Music is an integral part of our lives and there’s no denying that without good music, life would seem a lot more boring and unfulfilling. Whether you’re using the earbuds to listen to music or something like a full sized studio headphone, a good listening experience is something necessary.
For anyone who likes to listen to music and is passionate, the whole process of buying earbuds is a lot simpler. You just have to pick the pair that fits your budget and sounds according to your music preference. However, for people who are not as adept with earbuds, there are quite some things that you have to keep in mind.
In order to make things easier for you, we have decided to take a look at some of the basic things that you need to keep in mind when buying a pair of earphones. Consider this as an earphones 2018 buying guide that you can use.
Despite the big difference between earphones, and headphones, the guide can somehow apply to both. So, without wasting more time, let’s take a look at the buying guide.
Believe it or not, when it comes to buying earbuds, you get what you pay for - in most cases. Yes, there are some earphones available in the market that overcharge you for the name that they have established over the couple of years. But in many cases, this doesn’t happen.
If you are planning on buying a pair of earphones, you need to determine your budget. This way, it’ll be a lot easier for you to find options rather than hopelessly looking for the earphones that you want to buy.
Whether you want to go wireless or wired, is also a big factor that can make or break the whole buying experience. The age old debate about wired being better than wireless is still going but thanks to several different wireless technologies available in the market, the experience has become a lot similar than it used to be.
As a matter of fact, there are several wireless headphones/earphones available in the market that are almost as good as the wired pair. With that in mind, you should make up your mind before you go search for a pair of earbuds, because it can lead to some confusions that you are probably not in the mood to go for.
There are earphones that only come with one driver, and there are earphones that have multiple drivers in them; the idea of having multiple drivers is to make the sound a lot better than what a single driver could do. However, the caveat here is definitely the added cost that comes with it.
Whenever you’re in the market for a pair of earphones, you definitely need to consider the type of driver combination you’re looking for. While having more drivers won’t necessarily make the sound stage comparable to actual headphones, it will provide a lot better experience than just having single driver in the earphones.
Despite the fact that earphones are small and generally considered comfortable, we were surprised when we came across some notorious pair of earbuds that weren’t comfortable at all. Believe it or not, comfort is something that plays a huge role in your entire music experience. Having a bad pair of earphones can have a drastically negative experience.
The best way to determine whether or not the comfort level of the earphones is good enough is to read some reviews on the internet or personally taste different pairs that you have in mind in order to know which is the one that you actually prefer.
Once you have narrowed down the list, it’ll be a lot easier for you to buy the best possible pair you can find.
Last but not the least, when choosing a pair of earphones, one really important thing that you should look for is the added accessories. Through years of our buying and testing earphones, we have come to realize that the higher you pay, the less amount of accessories you get, mainly because all that money is actually spent on making the earphones as good as they sound.
With that in mind, one shouldn’t stay away from accessories just because of that, you should at least get a carrying case, as well as a clip on accessory, and some extra ear tips. Some manufacturers ago above and beyond and include other accessories like cleaning cloth, as well as filters that you can replace in order to have a different sound stage.
Now that we have everything out of the way, we can go ahead and look at the best earbuds you can buy.
After carefully testing the number of earphones that we have had with us, drawing a conclusion wasn’t as easy as we thought it would be. However, things started becoming a lot obvious after we tested the 1More Triple Driver earphones.
Things became quite evident, and we have to say that the earphones are certainly the best earbuds in the market at the moment. They have 3 individual drivers, are loaded with accessories, have the best build quality we have seen so far, and sound quality is just over the top brilliant.
On top of everything else, they are also super affordable, so buying them shouldn’t be an issue for anyone. All in all, we are really, really happy with how good they sound. The 1More Triple Driver are the clear winner of this list of best earbuds 2018, without a doubt.
