If you own an iPhone chances are you appreciate beautiful design, high quality and the latest technology. And that probably means that you won’t settle for the ordinary earplugs that come with your iPhone.
Yes, they may be free (most iPhones are sold with earbuds), but their sound quality is not quite up to par and they don’t have the latest technology features like Bluetooth.
It’s important to think about how and where you will be using your headphones.
Will you be using them at the gym to listen to music, in the office to talk with colleagues, or in the car while driving? Do you plan to take calls, dictate notes or talk to Siri? If you’ve answered yes to these questions, then you’ll need Bluetooth headphones with a built-in microphone.
Active or inactive, you don’t have to worry about wires and cables with Bluetooth technology. But you need to think about whether you want headphones that wrap around the back of your head, sit on your ears like earbuds, or fit over your head.
And you also need to consider that headphones with Bluetooth tend to weigh a bit more than headphones without. So it’s best to try them on or read reviews, before you buy them and evaluate how they feel and how durable they are.
Price is an important consideration. And when Bluetooth is involved, headphones can be expensive. Some headphones cost hundreds of dollars and some cost more than your iPhone!
If you’re willing to spend a lot on your headphones, make sure you’re not paying just for the name. There are Bluetooth headphones upwards of $400 that are the same quality as ones in the $100-250 range.
Also, keep in mind that if you will be using your headphones primarily for listening, then you probably won’t need headphones with a microphone. Earbuds equipped with Bluetooth can be a great option for someone who is on the go but who rarely uses the microphone – like public transportation users.
These also tend to be less expensive, so Bluetooth earbuds are a good choice if you are concerned about price.
Finally, finding the best Bluetooth headphones for iPhone can seem overwhelming. But if you focus on how you plan to use your headphones and the features you want, you will find a pair that’s perfect for you.
