Free Headphones! Kidding. But now that we have your attention, we do mean to take a gander at whether it is good for your headphones to be ‘free’ of wires or not. See what to be…

In this world of mobility and wireless technology, being tangled might seem odd. With the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 4G taking over the world of tech, audio too is well on its way to wireless freedom. But there is still time before wirelesses catches up with the prowess of a goo lol wired pair of headphones. Why do you say? For that, let us understand the difference between using wired and wireless headphones and how it affects the way you listen to music.

Wireless headphones are the trend in today’s age and day. Comfortable and portable are all we look for, don’t we? Headphones and earphones are also becoming convenient and portable.

Technologies such as the NFC, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth are used to transmit audio signals. There are many of the wireless buds and cans that have excellent audio reproduction. While going, wireless helps in terms of mobility and convenience; there are some limitations to it.

The main disadvantage of the wireless devices is that there may be a loss of quality with the high-resolution audio which is, being transmitted. To reduce this loss in transmission over the Bluetooth companies like the Apple, Sony and Qualcomm have come up with the Bluetooth codecs. They use a high-grade transmitter and receiver with advanced codec support that reduces the loss to a great extent when it comes to a wireless audio transfer.

At the time when we compared wired headphones with the wireless headphones, the main advantage is proper signal transmission over the wires leading to a better audio reproduction. Most wired headphones use copper cables with the fiber casing. This reduces the loss of signals to nearly nothing. The main limitation with a wired headphone is that the cable is tangle-prone.
