Lots of students have to buy a new
headphone every semester or every several months for various reasons, such as
the old was broken when the game lost, or dragged while rushing to watch a
video, or pulled unconsciously while carrying it. For these consumable items,
the life of headphone is seriously shortened by all these challenges in the
dormitory. Thus they have to be changed time and time again, not owing to the
owner's preference. Actually, for students, there are lots of durable and
qualified headphones. As long as you have selected wisely, you are able to find
a pair of highly cost-effective "new ears".
1. Choose the appropriate way of wearing
At present, the over the head headphones
and clip on headphones are more suitable for students, which are more
comfortable. Easier to use and could meet their demands. Besides, generally,
such products are durable and suitable for the energetic students.
the head headphones, their earmuffs are typically very large, which
could completely cover the user's ears to reducing the outside noise. However,
these big earmuffs are muggy in summer and they may mess with the girls' hair.
Therefore, this kind is appropriate for the boys who prefer playing games and
listening to the music.
on headphone won't bring the sense of muggy or the mess of the hair,
but its effect of insulation noise is a little worse. For friends who dislike
the heavy headphones, clip on headphone is not only fashionable, but also
without limits of simply matched with computers.
2. Take care of the sound quality
Although the sound quality of cheap
headphones has a huge gap between the high-class ones, the difference
between the cheap ones still shouldn't be underestimated. Especially some
headphones are terrible at the alto voice, just in order to emphasize the bass
and treble. What's worse, some may even sound an unrecognizable voice, which is
unacceptable for students who also need to learn English, watch films and have
So, while choosing a cheap headphone, you
should focus on the clearly of the sound and well performance of alto voice
even though you have reduced the requirements for bass and treble.
3. Watch out the effect of picking up sound
The role of the microphone also shouldn't
be ignored. If it has a low sensitivity, the other could barely hear you unless
you shouted. With a bad function of picking up the sound, the other people
can't hear what you said exactly. So here introduces a tip to test the
microphone function while selecting headphones. While testing the product on
the spot, start the recording program of the system. Since recording, place the
microphone in the normal position and simply say some words, and then play the
recording. If the volume is obviously less or you couldn't hear what you have
just said, the quality of the microphone is poor.
4. Only the durable ones could live longer
This situation is very common that the boys
are grabbing the laptop or headphones in the dormitory. These actions would
always break the beam of the headphone and its lines during an intense game.
Therefore, you must pay attention to the
beam of the headphone. In fact, it's pretty hard to find products with steel
beam among cheap headphones, so instead, look at the quality of the plastic
material and its thickness. The line of the headphone should not only be thick
enough, but additionally have a braiding layer to make sure that the headphone
can survive the violence.
5. Attach importance to the headphone plugs
Resistance of plug will increase after
oxidation. The rate of signal attenuation and interference will correspondingly
increase and affect the sound quality. The process of gold plating has a
superior performance on resistance to oxidation, which could slow down the
oxidation to a large extent. Thus, the selection of a gold-plated plug
headphone is a wise choice.
