Folding headphones are ideal for traveling.
You don’t have to carry bulky headphones and worry about damaging them anymore. Instead you can fold these audio marvels into a small size which you carry with ease. In addition, you can hear your favorite music in comfort as if you were listening a non-foldable headphone.Most of us have purchased portable audio players at some time or the other. Though these players are truly a technology marvel, what is disappointing is the headsets they come with. Most manufacturers have these really cool portable audio players and they end up giving their customers inexpensive and low quality headsets that do not do justice to their players…and our ears!
However, now we can go out and purchase folding headphones which are high quality and economical. Once you plug one of these to your Ipod, you’ll immediately realize the difference. The crisp sound, high quality highs and lows of the cans along with the advantage of carrying them around easily… makes all the difference.
If you are genuinely looking for real folding, lightweight and affordable headset, then one of the options you could look at are the Koss Porta Pro. This can is comfortable and comes for round $50. It’s much better than other conventional head phones that come in the same price range. You will definitely enjoy the clear sound and will have no problems wearing it for hours comfortably. In addition, this earphone is durable and the quality will stand the test of time. Another perfect example you’ll want to look at is the Sennheiser px-200 folding mini headphones. These are great sounding noise cancelling… portable cans.
Koss also has another product known as Sport Apro. What makes this different is the headband, which can either be used on top of your head or you can fold it back so that it is behind your head. There are temporal pads attached to the headband which takes the pressure away from the ear pads. You can wear this can while exercising, jogging or just sitting and relaxing at home. This model from Koss is cheaper than Portpro and comes for around $30.
Both these headsets from Koss have folding designs. They can be collapsed and rolled up like a ball so that they fit into the little pouch that is supplied along with the model. The Sport Apro model can also be folded flat rather than a ball. Another set to look at are Panasonic noise cancelling folding headphones. Like all Koss models, these too come with ear pads that are made from foam. However, the ear pads can be replaced and you can get the replacements. You can connect the cans to any home stereo by means of a 1/4-inch adapter, which is gold plated, and use the 4-foot cord to sit on a couch comfortably and chill out while listening to music. Both models are durable and have metal headbands rather than plastic. All you have is register with Koss who assure you of a lifetime warranty. If something goes wrong, you have to ship the headset to the company along with money to cover their shipping cost.
In order to get the best audio output from your audio device, using these foldable headphones is the answer. When you can get high quality sound, why settle for something mediocre.
