- Headphones are a pair of small loudspeakers or transducers that receive electrical signals from a media player and convert them into sound waves.
- Speakers of the headphones convert the electrical signals into sound waves.
- On one end, the headphones are connected to an audio-frequency signal source. They are held close to the listener's ears so that his/her listening experience is maximized.
- There are different methods that headphone transducers implement to reproduce sound.
- In the electrostatic method of sound reproduction, an electrical signal is applied to electrodes. It creates an electric field and the diaphragm in the headphones moves towards one of the plates. The air traveling through perforations and the changing electrical signal result in the production of a sound wave.
- Headphones may have a balanced-nature armature, which is a transducer that increases electrical efficiency by removing stress on the diaphragm.
- Certain headphones have orthodynamic drivers that consist of fine aluminum discs acting as the diaphragm.
- Canalphones can be inserted directly into the ear canals.
- Closed-ear headphones filter external interferences and are believed to offer a better listening experience.
