Best Wired Headphones

There's no need to worry about pairing your devices, a connectivity or audio lag, or running out of charge if you choose wired headphones. With no audio compression or loss of sound quality, the ease and reliability of 'plug in and go' makes a pair of wired headphones appealing to many.

Wireless headphones may be gaining in popularity, but here are some reasons why wired headphones are still a favourable choice:

Sound Quality The bar for sound quality is set by wired headphones. The best wireless headphones aren't going to sound as good as the best wired headphones, because Bluetooth performance can't compare to a wired connection. In a professional music studio, you'll find audiophiles and professionals use wired headphones for the best sound quality.

Price The best ones that the professionals use are very expensive. But if you compare a pair of wired headphones to a wireless pair with the same sound quality, wired ones are always cheaper. This is because without the need for a battery or wireless antenna, wired headphones are cheaper to make.

Reliability With a wired connection, there aren't really any external factors that will affect the sound quality. With Bluetooth headphones, your listening experience can be impacted by several factors not within your control, such as the number of other Bluetooth devices in close proximity, or bad and faulty software.

Durability New technology and new innovations mean there's a frequent turnover of tech products, often with a shorter lifespan. If you want to invest in a good quality pair of headphones, how long do you want them to last for? Most batteries in wireless headphones are not removable, meaning that once the battery dies, the headphones themselves become pretty obsolete.

Use our filters to narrow down your choices. The 3.5mm audio jack is most common, but you may have need for 6.3mm, 2.5mm or USB compatibility. Know all the brands? The Brand filter is also helpful for finding details and reviews on headphones from plenty of brands, including top Japanese and German manufacturers such as Audio Technica, Sennheiser and Beyerdynamic, amongst others.
