Good headphones don’t come cheap. Invest in one that you can use for a very long time!

All music lovers know that choosing the perfect set of headphones isn’t as simple as walking into a shop and picking up the first pair that catches their eyes.

From in-ear wireless headphones with Bluetooth connection and remote controls to on-ear headphones with noise-cancelling and waterproof qualities, portable audio devices have cool but sometimes complicated features, and it can be more than intimidating when you want to get the right pair.

To help take your audio experience to the next level, we’ve put together a quick guide with everything you’ll need to know in choosing the headphones that will suit your lifestyle needs – whether you’re a sports addict, trend setter, office worker, frequent traveller or audio connoisseur!
