Tips for buying a headphone/earphone

Microphone - Not all In ear earphone and neckband comes with a microphone. Also they skip the mic and track switch. If you need a good earphone which deliver pure music experience but in low range than you might need to compromise with it.

Impedance - Impedance is a tolerance power of earphones, the low the impedance the low the tolerance power and the more the chance of getting your earphone wasted with high output.
If you're looking a headphone for laptop or PC the go with earphone with higher impedance value.

Size of earbuds tube - The long tube reduce the chance of your earphone wire gets twisted. Unfortunately very few earphone comes with long length tube.

Noise Cancellation - Noise canceller reduce the outside noise to deliver better "noise-free" music. Best for riders.

Jack Shape - Those jacks which comes with L shaped reduce the chance of wire damage. If you're the guy who often put his/her phone in pocket then you must look for a L shaped jack. Though L shaped jack are very few now and most of the brands adopting the similar straight tube fashion.
