What Is The Difference Between Cordless & Wirless Headphones?

Oct 24, 2007
Wireless headphones gives you the flexibility to move away from your stereo or television without feeling like you're going to miss something important. No longer do you have to wait for the next commercial.

This freedom gives you the opportunity to move and work throughout the house and not miss a single thing. Would you like to hear the football or baseball game upstairs without having to move your stereo up there? Or maybe go outside for a few minutes to take the garbage out. No problem...you haven't missed a thing.

Remember, the head sets themselves do not plug directly into your Ipod or stereo or tv. With each unit you purchase, there is a base unit with infrared technology that sends a signal to your headphones.

This power unit is what plugs into your stereo or television. Also, the base usually is the cradle (on quality units) for recharging the head set as well.

As mentioned earlier, this technology allows the freedom of wireless to be available for mp3 players and other hand held devices. This is great for those wanting to exercise and who is always fumbling with the cord on their head set.

Many people trying to work out are so bothered by the cord the only thing they end up doing is untangling the cord or fixing their earpieces to be more comfortable and have a better fit.

Also, you should know the difference between wireless and cordless. Many people think of them as the same, but they're not.

Wireless means you most likely have to stay in the line of sight of the base unit. The technology behind this is similar to that of your remote control for the television. The standard range is about 30 feet. Some units are available with more mobility, but signal strength can be lost. This makes most of these units more compatible with home or office use than anywhere else.

There are units available which have multi-user capabilities. This is great for one or more persons to share the exact same audio signal. A setup like this, makes music sharing easy and convenient.

These setups are available for home office and standard office applications. Salesman selling on the telephone are no longer strapped to the desk. This allows freedom of movement.

Being stuck in one position for long periods can actually tire someone out. With this, the telemarketer can stand and take a brief walk or stretch without the cumbersome burden of cords. Instantly, the work environment becomes a more productive and enjoyable experience.

This cord-less technology makes it easy for a teacher to section the class room into groups. Each group can share the media from a single device.

Result? The entire classroom is able to enjoy the freedom of mobility while still remaining productive. No longer are the students being stuck to their desk. Structured settings just became more relaxed. When the student does not feel burdened, the learning experience can become more enjoyable.

Wireless headphones and the resulting technology is no longer limited to just a home stereo. The world is on the move and the wireless headphones technology is moving right along with them.
