When it comes to headphones getting a pair according to the specific requirement you have in mind for the headphone is very difficult because of the obvious reason that they are not custom made. And if one do tries to adjust to the mass produced headphones, finding the suitable headphone is made confusing due to the vast variety of headphones on the market today.

Getting a headphone for studying is confusing since you don’t know what you may be getting and if that headphone will suit your listening style. We have compiled some of the best headphones for studying below in this publication that you can have a look at. But if you decide to get a headphone on your own then there are few things that you should keep in mind before purchasing a headphone which will allow you to make a smart decision. Let’s get into that first.

Noise Cancellation

The first thing you should keep in mind when getting a headphone is the noise cancellation feature. Since you are going to be using the headphone while studying and you will be studying in different places such as Starbucks, Dorm Room or some place where there will be some people around you and they will be noisy. If you want your listening experience to be exclusive and isolated so you can concentrate better you need a good noise cancellation feature on your headphone.

Comfort

The next thing you should look for in a headphone is the comfort level. Since you will be studying for hour at a stretch you will need a headphone that will not cause fatigue to your ears after just 30 minutes of wearing them. Do make sure that a headphone is comfortable you need to check the headband first there has to be a good soft padding on it. The earpads should have deep padding and the padding should be of soft materials. If you have small ears or big ears you might want to consider in-ear headphones, check out our other publication on small ears headphones to find out more.

Lightweight

The weight of the headphone is directly related to the comfort level of the headphone. If a headphone is heavy in weight then you will not be able to wear them for a long duration or they will not hold on to your ears well when you move your head around and will fall off. So always go for a lightweight headphone.

Battery

If you are going for a wireless headphone and we recommend that you do go for a wireless headphone due to convenience they offer, you will need to charge them after you have used them or when the battery runs out and that is fine but you have to look for a headphone which can last at least 20 hours on a full charge otherwise you will be charging the headphone twice a day and that is not fun at all since charging the headphone can take at least 2 to 3 hours.

Sound Quality

Then there is sound quality this is the obvious thing you should be looking for in a headphone. If you don’t get good sound quality out of your headphones then they are of no use.
