Earphones tuck inside your ear and are lighter, smaller and more compact than headphones. So, they’re perfect for when you’re on-the-go.

Noise-cancelling

With noise-cancelling headphones, you can listen to your favourite tracks in peace, as they cancel out background noise.

Wireless

Connect your wireless headphones to your phone via Bluetooth, for unrestricted listening wherever you go.

Sports

Fitting in and around your ears securely, you can listen to music while you work-out with sports earphones.


Over-ear
vs on-ear

Over-ear headphones keep more of your music locked in, while on-ear headphones are usually picked based on style.

In-ear

In-ear

Earphones sit neatly and comfortably inside your ear, so they’re a lot smaller and more compact than headphones. They’re perfect for when you’re on the go, at the gym and in the office as they’re easy to pop inside your pocket or bag. Even though they’re more discreet and compact, some models offer the same tech and high quality sound as headphones, such as Beats. Our range is made up of loads of different colours and styles, giving you plenty of options.

Over-ear vs on-ear

Over-ear vs on-ear

Over-headphones sit comfortably around your ear, making them perfect for longer days. They also keep more of your music locked in for a better listening experience. With on-ear headphones, they’re a great choice if you’re looking for something stylish. This is because they sit on top of your ear, so they’re generally smaller.
