Need and usage:
Are you going to use your earbuds while jogging? Or are you going to just walk with them on? Or are you going to use them in your workplace? The earphones you buy have to suit your need and usage. If you’re going to use earphones while jogging, you can’t afford to have them falling off after every couple of steps. A snug fit pair of earphones would do good. The basic idea is just to buy what fits in the best for you.


Especially if you’re buying them online, you have to pay utmost attention to the specifications before actually buying them. Buying them off the shelf would be a preferred option but if you’re getting a great deal online just make sure you’re well-versed with the specifications. Frequency response, Impedance, Sensitivity and Drivers are the four main aspects you have to check out before actually zeroing down the purchase.

Not all earphones fit our ears, and we all know that well. Get yourself a pair which suits your ear and fits in gently. While the plastic ones do hurt after a long usage period, the ones with the rubber tips are most preferred. Apart from these two options, you have quite a few more – foam earbuds and comfort earbuds. You can also get a comfortable pair designed for yourself by using the custom made ones too.
