If you’re off on your holidays, one thing you need to make sure you pack is a decent set of headphones. Whether you want to listen to an audiobook on a long flight, listen to some of your favourite relaxing tunes by the pool as you sunbathe, or crank up the volume when you’re doing a high energy pursuit like mountain biking – there’s a pair that are perfect for you.
Best for kids
JVC Tiny Phones Kids Stereo Headphones are perfect if your kids want to play noisy video games or watch a movie on a packed plane. They come in cute colours that children will love and even include stickers so they can customise their own pair. They have an all-important low noise setting so you don’t have to be nervous about them damaging their ears.
Best for the beach
It might sound crazy but you can now take your music with you when you go for a swim because there are waterproof headphones specially made for the job! Pick up something like the Sony Walkman Sports MP3 Player, which offers a 4GB MP3 player and 8 hours charge time in a pair of wraparound headphones that will leave you wire free and ready for a splash in the sea to a depth of up to 2 metres!
Best for sports
If you want to indulge in some sports on holiday then the most practical option for you are in-ear headphones as they will stay put whatever you get up to. If you’re serious about the quality of your music and want the soundtrack to your sporting activities to be top notch then go for a pair of Dr. Dre Beats Powerbeats Earphones. They are UV and sweat resistant and the handy ear hooks with flexible arms keep them in place and feeling comfortable.
Best noise cancelling
Switching off is something we all dream of when we’re on holiday, and one thing that’s sure to help us achieve that is a pair of noise cancelling headphones. The Bose QuietComfort 15 are unparalleled in their ability to keep out the racket with microphones inside and outside the comfortable ear cup that sense the sound they need to cancel out around you, allowing you to totally appreciate whatever it is you want to listen to.
Best for making a style statement
If you love fashion and want your headphones to look great as well as sound great then you’ll love the Diamond Tears set by Monster. These luxury headphones boast a faceted, diamond shaped design in iridescent tones that will stand out, whichever street you’re on in the world!
So get researching and you’re sure to find the perfect headphones for your holiday – whether it’s a pair to play your music loud and proud, or a set that make you look like a star!
