Best Headphones For Glasses 2018

(Last Updated On: June 6, 2018)

When it comes to headphones for people who wear glasses it is a tough task to find one headphone that suits all of the people who wear glasses. The best option for the people who wear glasses is the earbuds which means one has to sacrifice on the quality of sound and the noise cancellation. Wearing headphones with glasses is not as difficult as one can imagine but the main thing is finding the right fit. We have compiled some of the best headphones for glasses below in this publication that you can check out. But if you decide to get headphones on your own there are few things you should keep in mind to make a smart decision. Let’s get into it first.

Comfort

Now if you are getting a headphone and you wear glasses then the first thing that you should look for in a headphone is the comfort level of the headphone. If there is not enough padding on the ear cups or the headband is too tight or doesn’t have the memory foam padding then the headphone will not be comfortable to wear. Among the padding the factor of being able to adjust the headphone’s headband and earcups also play an important part when it comes to using those headphones with glasses on.

Padding

The next thing that is crucial when it comes to headphone for people with glasses is that the padding not only has to be comfortable but it has to be changeable. This is necessary since different people adjust to different types of padding so if the earcup or headband padding that came with the headphone that is produced by the manufacturer doesn’t suit you, you can always get a 3rd party padding for ear cups according to your personal preference.

Noise Cancellation

The next thing that has to consider when getting a headphone is the noise cancellation. Getting a headphone is of no use if the outside noise constantly enters through the headphone into your ears disturbing your listening experience. Make sure that you don’t confuse noise cancellation with noise isolation. Noise isolation works by using a physical layer installed in the earcup which blocks some of the outside noise while the noise cancellation is something else and is better than noise isolation. So go for noise cancellation.

Gaming

If you are getting a headphone for gaming purposes and you wear glasses then you have to make sure that you get a good microphone on your gaming headphone. Microphone is a necessary tool especially in FPS games and noise cancelling microphones are the best since they block the background sound and only your voice reach your teammates.

Wireless

Now if you decide to get wireless headphone for yourself then you have to know that there are three types of wireless connectivity available on the headphones today.

  • RF
  • Infrared
  • Bluetooth

Now if you are getting a headphone that you will exclusively use on the PC then getting a RF connectivity headphone makes sense. If you want to use your headphone during the day whether you are in office or on the commute then Bluetooth connectivity headphone is your go to option.

Now let’s start with the best headphones we have on here for the people who wear glasses.
