Mashable

There are literally thousands of different headphones, earphones, and earbuds out there to choose from. All have the same idea at heart -- to provide you with music without having to play it out loud for everyone to hear. But some achieve this result so much better than others. Sure, you could just hit Amazon and buy the cheapest, but that's not always a great idea either. Are you planning on listening at home?

Look to sound quality and battery life when shopping for new headphones

There are literally thousands of different headphones, earphones, and earbuds out there to choose from. All have the same idea at heart -- to provide you with audio without having to play it out loud for everyone to hear. But some achieve this result so much better than others. You could just search for the cheapest pair, but in our experience, budget earbuds are not typically a great idea since they will most certainly fail you right when you need them most. Instead, you're going to want to get the best headphones for you, and that means you'll have to think about how you plan on using them after you buy them.


The best headphones for your Android devices

Mashable

All Android smartphones come bundled with earphones for you to get listening to your favorite music or podcasts immediately, but they're rarely a great set of earphones. It's a better idea to purchase a separate pair of headphones or earphones that suit your needs, providing you know what to look for. First of all, consider when you're going to be using your headphones most often. Do you want to block out background noise while you're on your daily commute? Do you want a pair that are great while you're running or working out at the gym?


The best headphones for iPhone users

Mashable

Listening to music, podcasts, or audiobooks on your iPhone makes perfect sense -- your phone is basically the modern-day iPod. But to get the most out of your listening experience, you really need a good set of headphones or earphones. The ones that come bundled with your iPhone just don't sound as good as a dedicated set -- and they leak sound like crazy. If you're serious about your sounds -- and you should be -- you need to shop around for something better. But not just any old headphones will do.
