Groovy Headphones To Up Your Stylish Ear Tech Game

Nov 01, 2015

Music, audio books, and chatting on the phone are an integral part of our busy lives on the go. A great pair of headphones or earphones can cushion your ears while bringing the best sound quality in stylish ways.

Initially created back in the late 1800s, headphones were first used by telephone operators and weighed about 10 pounds. Then in the 1950s and '60s headphones similar to the ones we know today first hit the market, and slowly but surely they morphed into the lightweight styles we are so familiar with today. Whether it’s listening to music during your commute to work or at the gym, or listening to an audio book on a long trip, or you’re chatting with a friend while you juggle groceries, headphones and earphones keep your hands free.
