Earpieces: types, purpose, characteristics


the Vast majority of headsets for listening to audio tracks or simply headphones are wired. They consist of radiators (have direct contact with your ear), plug for connection to sound source (usually a 3.5 mm mini jack) and the wires that connect both nodes. This arrangement has good sound characteristics, but often uncomfortable to wear and is noticeable to everyone around. In situations where discretion is paramount, it is better to use a wireless headset, such as from the Belarusian company MicraBY.

Audio track that is played through headphones, can have different content, meaning and, so to speak, the level of secrecy. For example, if a person listens to music audiobooks, learning materials have to hide he has no reason and it is possible to do a wired headset.

    Capsule. Have a conical or similar shape. Resemble normal vacuum in-ear headphones, more precisely, that part of them which is directly placed in the ear. Overall size in length can vary depending on the model, but in principle is within. Have a built-in membrane that converts electromagnetic vibrations, and thus transmits sound;

    Magnetic. Are miniature cylindrical magnets (dimensions rarely exceed 1-2 mm), devoid of any electronic filling. They are placed deep in the ear canal with the help of special devices. The principle of operation is based on the excitation of electromagnetic waves.
