Music headphones are (stereo) headphones designed to enable the highest-quality sound (and other audio content) consumption. The primary use-case is listening to music. Frequently, these headphones also include (multidirectional) microphones that enable them to be used for calls as a secondary application. Music headphones can be corded or cordless, using mainly either a 3.5mm jack or Bluetooth connectivity. Some headphones designed for professional use are included in this analysis. Typically, music headphones are used with mobile devices, tablets, and personal computers. Similar to music headphones, sports headphones are designed to enable high-quality music (and other audio content) consumption.
