Headsets have become very sophisticated over the years. Today, various models are designed to perform better in different circumstances. In other words, you may be a person who travels a lot and will be more inclined to buy a headset with noise suppression than the one who spends most of his time listening to music or watch movies at home through their headphones.

So when you go to buy or upgrade to a better set of headphones you will find not only a variety of styles, but you will also be faced with a set of terms that are specific to the headset industry. In this article, I would like to cover some of the most common terms connected with headphones, so you can get a better understanding in choosing the best pair for a particular type of hearing.

Audiophiles is a term you will see quite often when purchasing high-quality headset. The term itself is simply Greek audio which roughly means to listen or pay attention to and Philos which means making a strange philosophy. So basically Audiophiles are individuals who are very serious about the sound quality of the headphones they use.


Active noise cancellation headphones requires a power supply that allows small microphones, which are built into the headphones. They are usually powered by a small battery pack which is connected via a cable to headphones. The microphones capture the ambient noise outside and play sound in your earsphones in opposite frequency thus neutralize the external noise in the ears.

Active noise cancellation allows you to stop the external noise without significantly increasing the volume of the game. This, in turn, is much better for your ears!

Circumaural headphones headphone types that are considered standard ear covering headphones. Basically it is a headset that is the original design, which completely surround the ear to retain audio outs and a lot of noise outside.

Supra-aural headphones lay on the ear, as opposed to a complete coating. Although this headset is in very light weight, but they do not emit a lot of audio and listen to the city can be due to external noise.
