Noise Cancelling

Drown Out The Noise

Noise-cancelling headphones are designed to block out external noise, making them ideal for use in noisy environments such as airplanes, trains, or busy offices. They use active noise-cancellation technology to cancel out external sounds by creating an opposite sound wave to cancel out the external noise. These headphones are perfect for people who want to focus on their music or work without any distractions. Some popular noise-cancelling headphones include the Focal Bathys or the Solitaire T.

Over Ear Headphones

Excellent Comfort

Over-ear headphones, also known as circumaural headphones, are designed to fit over the ears. They offer superior sound quality and comfort compared to other types of headphones. They’re perfect for people who want to enjoy their music or podcasts in high-quality sound. These headphones also come in active noise-cancellation and passive noise-cancellation option. Some popular over-ear headphones include the Focal Stellia and the T+A Solitaire P.

On Ear Headphones

Portability is Key

On-ear headphones, also known as supra-aural headphones, are designed to sit on top of the ears. They’re smaller and more portable than over-ear headphones, making them perfect for people who are always on the go. They also come in active noise-cancellation and passive noise-cancellation option. 

Wireless Headphones

Ultimate Convenience

Wireless headphones use Bluetooth technology to connect to devices such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets. They’re perfect for people who want the freedom to move around without being tethered to their devices. Some popular wireless headphones include the T+A Solitaire T.


Enhanced Details

Technologies such as dynamic drivers, planar drivers and AMT drivers are used across a number of headphones to increase clarity and sonic performance.


Who Knew?

Many high end headphones use cables containing exotic materials in order to change the sound characteristics of the headphones. They may use plated copper conductors or exotic solid core metals. 


Comfort First

Maybe not! Some manufacturers choose their earpad design based on the sonic performance they provide. Alcantara, memory foam, leather and PU leather can be used to enhance the listening experience and comfort.
