    Headphones are a pair of small loudspeakers that are designed to be held in place close to a user's ears. Headphones either have wires for connection to a signal source such as an audio amplifier, radio, CD player, portable media player or mobile phone, or have a wireless receiver, which is used to pick up signal without using a cable. They are sometimes known as earspeakers or, colloquially, cans. The in-ear versions are also known as earphones or earbuds. In the context of telecommunication, a headset is a combination of headphone and microphone.

Examples of headphones in a Sentence

  1. Melissa Weinberg:

    I think it's interesting that, in today's day and age everybody's sort of walking around with headphones in their ears and not engaging with others, yet there's a clear difference between listening to music in isolation, versus listening to music with others or engaging with music.

  2. Neil Cybart:

    One factor that will make it very difficult for other companies, including Amazon and Microsoft, to compete with Apple AirPods is that success in wearables requires ecosystem strength and design and fashion expertise, it's not enough just to sell a pair of wireless headphones -- companies need to sell a selection of wearable tools targeting different parts of the body. Developing wearable devices that people want to wear and be seen wearing is not easy and requires empowering designers.

  3. Sreekant Cherukuri:

    Stay away from in-the-ear headphones, which sit much closer to the ear drum and get much louder. And use the 60/ 60 rule-- no more than 60 percent of maximum volume for 60 minutes at a time and then take a break. Ears that get a rest are less likely to get damaged.

  4. Maurice Wynn:

    Sports headphones are popular because they’re useful and versatile, they’re typically designed to stay in the ear and not shake loose, a lot of them claim to be moisture-resistant, and many of the ones we’ve rated have very good sound. There’s nothing preventing you from using them when you’re not working out.

  5. Tigran Petrosian:

    After my opponent left the very toilet partition yet another time, the arbiters entered it, what they found was the mobile phone with headphones. The device was hidden behind the pan and covered with toilet paper.
