There has been quite a fuss since Apple introduced its earpods. This is just like the regular headphones but without the messy wires. Of course, this is the main premise of the brand. They want to eliminate the difficulty of untangling the wires when using the device.
There are advantages and disadvantages in using earpods as opposed to in-ear headphones.
To begin with, you will feel more comfortable with earpods in terms of how they fit your ears. They are designed in such a way that they do not easily drop even if you are in motion. They are also considered the best headphones for small ears. You won’t have to worry about adjusting them since they automatically fit in your ear. In-ear headphones, on the other hand, come in different sizes. You can easily find one that fits your ears. However, in general, the ones available on the market have the same size and they could be quite challenging to use in terms of their fit.
Both devices provide high-quality sounds. The only problem with earpods is that they don’t have the ability to totally isolate the sound from the environment. You can easily hear what is going on around you even if you have the device on. The solution is to increase the volume, but it may cause discomfort. The advantage is that you remain aware of what is going on in your surroundings. You are not completely isolated. However, if you want total isolation and focus on what you are doing, the headphones are perhaps the best possible options.
Both devices are not considered water or sweat resistant. They can still absorb moisture and it could be a bit of a problem. However, earpods are slightly better in this category.
In general, it is really up to you on which device you think would be perfect for your needs. However, if you are on a tight budget, you definitely have to let go of earpods. For now, their prices are sky high while headphones have been there for a long time. They have cheaper versions you can easily buy.
