Headphones and Earphones Buying Guide

Numerous models to choose from, there are many things to look for in headphones and earphones. If you’re looking to narrow down your choices, it can be hard. Fielding requests and purchases from all across Canada, PrimeCables specializes in audio equipment, headphones, earbuds, and all types of sound. There are more than two dozen headphone models to browse in the catalogue, each with their own unique set of features. Here are a few of the different considerations to make when buying headphones or earphones.


Sound quality matters a tremendous amount when buying headphones. To some, it’s a big bass sound that they want. To others, it’s noise isolation or noise cancellation. Then, there’s headphones delivering a full-range reproduction of sound capturing every audio detail. Comfort, weight, portability, and fit are all components that can help decide which headphones are right for you. If you need headphones to plug into a portable player, you’re going to need equally portable earbuds. If you are creating music recordings, you’re going to want a high quality headphone model that does not necessarily need to be portable.


The best way to buy headphones is by knowing what you’re looking for and trying them on for size. Going in-store, you can head the difference between a great pair of headphones and a lower quality pair. Price is not always the great indicator, either. For example, in the PrimeCables catalogue, you’ll find cheaply priced high quality headphones and earphones available for purchase. The low prices do not indicate quality of performance. To this point, performance is important and at PrimeCables, we understand that. That’s why we provide free returns and a 1-year product guarantee on all purchases, in addition to a ‘free shipping’ coupon which is easily applied on any order above $49.


If you’re doing high-end audio work such as a professional musician would, there’s no room to compromise. You may need to shell out the $100 and over for a good quality pair. Thankfully, even on a modest budget, there are many high-end headphones and earphones that you won’t find anywhere else at such a great bargain. All of our headphones have been maximized with optimum sound and comfort. For the best in consumer-quality headphones, PrimeCables is the only name you need to remember.


Choosing the right headphones, earphones or earbuds comes down to how much research and looking you’re willing to do. Specifications aside, how they sound is the ultimate determinant. If you are planning to use your headphones for your smartphone, like so many Canadians do, searching out inexpensive earbuds might be the way to go. If you need something way more expensive and much higher quality, we got those models too. Contact PrimeCables today for more information on buying headphones.

How to Choose the Perfect Pair of Headphones

As music enthusiasts, podcast listeners, and consumers of media, we all love a good set of headphones or earbuds. How to choose a good high quality pair of headphones can be different for each person. Style, budget, and so many other factors play a role into buyers’ decision on choosing the right headphones for them.


Every headphone comes with a different style, fitting your ears a little differently, and sounding slightly different when you take a listen. The first thing and perhaps the most obvious thing to decide when selecting the perfect pair of headphones is to figure out what form you want them to take. For example, there are earbuds and in-ear headphones that are generally more inexpensive, smaller which makes them great for mobile use and storage in a pocket or bag, and come with many advantages. That said, sound quality wise, they don’t come close to over-the-ear headphones. If you’re uncomfortable putting things in your ear, don’t go this route.


Then, there are ear pad headphones which are supremely comfortable. The small pads go over the ear, keeping your ears super comfortable while listening to music and media. These headphones’ provide great sound, are nice for exercising, and can also be quite portable. Good quality ones should keep a lot of the noise out however some of the cheaper models see sound seeping in. Lastly, there’s the full size headphones with ear cups that hug the ear. The design is fairly large, and can be both open and closed. These larger headphones have great bass, clear sound, and noise isolation. To that last point, if noise cancellation is an important feature you require for your headphones, it’s worth browsing the PrimeCables catalogue for specific models.


Among the best headphones in the PrimeCables catalogue are the stereo ergonomic earbud headphones with mic and volume control for $4.99, the premium hi-di DJ-style over-the-ear professional headphones for $19.99, wireless Bluetooth earbuds with mic and charging case for $49.99, enhanced bass and noise isolating earbuds in all colors for $11.99, and so much more. Any time you shop with PrimeCables, you’ll receive fast, free shipping on all orders above $49 to anywhere in Canada, free returns, and a 1-year product guarantee. Please feel free to look into the more than two dozen other headphone models and find the right design for your needs.


Don’t buy headphones you’re not fully satisfied with. Know why you’re buying them, what you’ll be using them for, and what you need them to do. Shop PrimeCables today for the lowest prices on headphones in Canada.
