Clone of Why using headphones is better than using a speaker?

Nowadays, there are different type of headphones and speakers in the market. Because we have so many choices, we often get confused which one to buy. Basically, to understand which one is better for us we must have a good knowledge about the difference between these two tech products.

So, I will be explaining a little about these products before telling you exactly which one you need to buy and why you need to buy that product.


Headphones can be defined as a pair of earphones joined by a band placed over the head, for listening to audio signals such as music or speech.

Well, headphones are basically speakers that are small and can be used anywhere. You can use it when you are traveling or in public and no one other then you will listen the voice due to its small speakers. Now that does not mean we cannot use it other than traveling purposes. Headphones can be used anywhere anytime according to our need but only 1 person can listen voice of headphone at a time. Headphones can help to listen and create podcast on mobile.

There are different type of headphones available in market.

  • Circumaural Headphones
  • Supra-aural headphones
  • Earbuds
  • Canal phones
  • Bluetooth headsets

Headphones are budget friendly and easy to manage. Mostly Apple AirPods and Apple AirPods Alternatives have better sound quality and have Bluetooth in it.


Speakers can be defined as output device that is used for listening audio such as music or speech. Speakers are basically large, and we cannot take it everywhere we go. It has more voice than headphones and many peoples can listen to audio at the same time. Speakers are mostly used in public places for conveying message to larger audience or in homes for watching movies and listening to music.

There are different types of speakers.

  • In wall/ceiling speakers
  • Subwoofers
  • Soundbars
  • Loudspeakers
  • Outdoor speakers

Which one is better?

As I have already explained that speakers are used for more peoples listening audio at a time and headphones are used for a single person listening to the audio.

Basically, headphones are better in sound quality and you can listen to music without any noise in public places such as bus stands, offices, trains etc. No one other than you will be able to listen to the audio. It can be used for listening to phone calls, music or watching movies in home and public places. Headphones are also very budget friendly. You can easily buy one in $2-5 and enjoy music. Now that does not mean that speakers are of no use. If you want to listen to audio with your friends and family, you can use speakers. Even headphones are budget friendly but only you can listen to its sound and it’s a drawback of it.


Everything has its own use. Speakers are better if more sound is required and headphones can be used if only person want to listen that sound. Think wisely before buying speaker or headphones if you want better sound quality or a music lover than headphones will be the right choice for you.
