Why don't you have headphones for me?


Over-Ear vs On-Ear vs Earbuds vs In-Ear



Leakage is the sound that escapes the seal of the ear cups or earbuds. Loud leakage can be distracting to the people around you at high volumes.

Results: Our test results show that In-ear headphones are the least likely to leak, their size allows the small drivers to be directly placed into the ear canal and also needs less power to achieve the same perceived loudness. Not much sound escapes if a good seal is achieved. Over-ear headphones, on the other hand, have big drivers that can get quite loud. If the seal is not great, they will easily leak a wider range of frequencies than all other types of headphones. Leakage is worse with open back variations. It is encouraged in the design of the headphones to achieve a better soundstage.

Earbuds also have small drivers that do not sound loud at a distance. Therefore, leakage is not very high. On-ear headphones typically have less leakage than over-ear models but leak more than earbuds due to their larger drivers and sometimes poor on-ear seal.

Results:Over-Ear >On-Ear>Earbuds > In-Ear.
